The Implant Process
A dental implant is a titanium screw that is placed directly into your jawbone, replacing the root of your tooth. After it’s fitted, the bone surrounding your implant will gradually fuse to it, holding the implant firmly in place. A false tooth is then fitted to the top of the implant. The false tooth or teeth are similar in shape, size and colour to your existing teeth, to blend in naturally with your smile.
1. Consultation and Exam
We do a thorough review of your dental and medical history, then talk over your expectations and options.
2. Clinical Assessment, Planning and Creation of Your Prosthesis
A clinical assessment means that we’ll review x-rays and other details of your current condition to confirm if the process is appropriate. If it is, we’ll plan your procedure, create a digital 3-D and create your temporary prosthesis – your new tooth or teeth!
3. Preparation and Placement
Your procedure could possibly include multiple steps all in the same appointment. If extracting any teeth is required, that will be done first, followed by placement of the implant. The implant is anchored to the bone in your jaw. If more bone volume is needed, we will use bone substitute at that time. Finally, the temporary prosthesis is connected to the implant(s), giving you your new smile that looks and feels natural!
4. Follow-Up Appointment
A follow-up appointment is typically planned for two weeks after your procedure as a general check-up.
5. Taking 3D Scan for Your Final Prosthesis
Once your gums and bone are healed, your new implant and surrounding tissue will be ready for your final prosthesis, which is created to perfectly match the colour of adjacent teeth.
6. Fitting Your Final Prosthesis
We’ll remove the temporary prosthesis and fit your permanent solution in place. We’ll also make any final adjustments to help ensure your bite is comfortable, functional, easy to clean and natural looking.
