Thinking about getting dental implants? Basically, dental implant surgery is executed to replace broken or missing teeth using a titanium post to replace the roots of teeth.
Now the question that comes after receiving dental implants is what should I expect? Will the procedure be painful, how long it will take for your mouth to heal, and more? Just sit back and relax as dental implants are the best treatment for missing teeth. Want to know the expectations that can be made during the whole procedure? Let’s get started then.
1. Initial Consultation
The very first thing you need to do is schedule an appointment with your dentist. During that visit, the dentist will execute x-rays, teeth impressions, and more, to determine the dental problem and solution for overcoming it as well. They will explain everything from the treatment plan, procedures, benefits and costs. All in all, the first stage of the treatment will be covered.
2. Tooth Removal Procedure
If the tooth is broken and not missing the tooth will first be extracted. Sometimes the implant will be placed the same day as the tooth is extracted. Your dentist will explain to you the whole procedure step by step, and ensure you have a hassle-free and pain-free treatment.
3. Implant Placement
After the tooth extraction procedure, it’s time for the implant. In this procedure, the dentist will insert the implant in the position of the original tooth serving as an artificial tooth root. This appointment lasts around 1 hour with minimal discomfort after the procedure.
4. Placement Of Crown
The final stage of your dental implant is the placement of crown. This happens 3 months following the placement of the implant. Depending on the location of the implant, steps can be taken to ensure proper esthetics and appearance of your implant crown. This is totally up to the patient. For a front tooth, cosmetics are more crucial so taking these steps become very important. Once the crown is ready, it is simply screwed into the internal aspect of the implant. It now feels, looks, and functions like a natural tooth.
