The Dental Implant Process
Dr. Kanning or Dr. Tippin will begin your treatment process with a thorough dental examination. We use advanced digital CT technology to evaluate the condition of your oral health and to plan placement for predictable results. The entire process will take up to six months, depending on how quickly your gum and bone tissues heal and integrate with the implanted post:
- Implantation: The placement of the dental implant is a simple procedure performed in our Lawson or Richmond dentist office under local anesthesia. It typically takes three to six months for the implant to heal and fully integrate with the jawbone.
- Implant Restoration: In some cases our dentists can complete the restoration of the tooth implant on the same visit. Other times, he will place a temporary crown or bridge to be worn during the healing process.
Replacing Missing Teeth
Single Dental Implants
Bridge Vs. Dental Implant
When replacing several consecutive missing teeth a dental bridge can be used. Dental bridges can be made removable or secured using a dental implant for added oral health benefits.
For patients with advanced bone degeneration, bone grafting may be necessary if they wish to receive a successful dental implant. Dental implants require substantial healthy bone tissue for long-term results.
