Dental Implant Process
The process of placing a dental implant typically involves three separate parts which work together to replace both your tooth and root. These different parts include the implant, abutment, and dental crown. The implant is the piece that is surgically attached to your jaw bone. This provides the base for building a permanent tooth replacement and additionally stimulates your jaw bone by acting as a tooth root. The abutment is attached to the implant and sits above the gumline. Finally, the dental crown is attached to the abutment and replaces your natural tooth. If you have already had a procedure for an implant and abutment placement, the process of having an implant restoration simply involves the creation and placement of the dental crown.
The process for placing or restoring dental implants is a bit different for each individual patient and procedure. It will be important to first have your needs evaluated during a consultation. In some cases, it is necessary to prepare your jaw bone before the procedure to ensure the implant can be effectively attached. After working together with Dr. Chris to build a plan for your smile goals, you’ll be given more information regarding your own implant process for a successful placement or restoration procedure!
