DENTAL IMPLANTS PROCEDURE
The permanent tooth procedure requires that either one, or multiple (depending on how many teeth are being replaced) titanium posts are placed into the jawbone with pressure controlled drills.
Some patients may need some preparatory procedures before the procedure can be done. For example, if a patient has a deficient or weak jawbone, a bone graft may be needed to enhance the patient’s jawbone and create a supportive foundation for the placement. Bone grafting will affect your time frame for the procedure since it will take 6 to 9 months for the bone to heal properly.
If bone grafting is not possible, then such patients can get mini dental implants which are thinner in diameter than conventional ones. Because of their smaller size and shape, they can be placed in a smaller amount of bone.
It usually takes from 4 to 6 months for the bone and gums to fuse around the new artificial root during a process called Osseointegration.
During recovery, the patient will have many appointments with the dentist to evaluate the overall healing of surgical location.
In the meanwhile, the dental lab will create customized restoration which should be ready to be placed as soon as site is healed completely.
Bone graft pricing varies depending on the size and shape of the roots being extracted.
