|•||Implant Site Preparation: Placing a dental implant is an oral surgery procedure. To prepare the site, the gum tissue is opened to expose the bone area. If there is insufficient bone structure, bone grafting, also known as bone regeneration may be recommended. With healthy bone, a special drill is used to prepare the bone to receive the implant.
|•||Placing the Implant: The implant is placed into the healthy bone and the tissue is sutured. The sutures are removed in seven to ten days. It is normal to expect three to six months to heal entirely. Osseointegration occurs over this time period allowing the implant to become part of the upper or lower jaw.
|•||Attaching the Post: A special post is attached to the implant when the gum tissue is ready. This post is the support for the new porcelain crown. Zirconium abutments attached to the implant post assure that the new porcelain tooth has translucency properties similar to a natural tooth.
|•||Placing the Crown: The new crown is made from impressions taken and shaded to match your existing teeth. The crown is cemented over the post. The final prosthetic crown appears as your natural tooth.|
