Dental Implant Placement
Dental implants are replacements that look and function like your natural teeth. If you are missing one or all your teeth, this is an excellent option for you, but you must meet the requirements to receive implants. If this is an option you want to pursue, we will schedule an evaluation at New Heights Dental & Braces to go over the dental implant process and determine if you need any other procedure before your surgery. Once we decide you are a good candidate for dental implants, we will schedule you for a complete evaluation of your oral health, and we will discuss your customized treatment plan. Every patient has different needs and circumstances which will impact the dental implant placement surgery.
Dental Implant Placement Procedure Steps
Dental implants are used to replace one or several teeth. If all your teeth are missing, we have the All-on-4® Treatment Concept technology available to replace all the upper and lower teeth, in one appointment.
Dental implant surgery is usually performed in stages. If we use All-on-4 surgery, there will be fewer stages, but you still need to come in for follow-up appointments after the surgery. In general, the dental implant placement procedure steps are:
Everyone will react to the surgery process differently, but depending on the patient, the entire process can take up to a year. Most of the time you will be healing from one of the procedures. After the permanent crown is added, you will need to come back for one or more follow-up visits to make sure you are healing.
