What Can I Expect From the Implant Surgical Procedure?
During your procedure, a small incision is made into the gums. The titanium post is placed into the jawbone, and the tissue is closed over the implant. You are then sent home to heal.
While at home, the jaw bone integrates with the titanium post in an osseointegration process. The bone slowly grows securely around the implant, making it part of your body and a solid base for your new teeth. The osseointegration healing process takes anywhere from two to six months. Some patients ask for a temporary crown until the process is complete.
Once osseointegration has finished, the abutment is attached to the implant post. The new crown is fitted to the opposite end of the abutment. Once secured tightly, your brand-new tooth should instantly feel comfortable and match your natural teeth. You are sent home with aftercare instructions.
This incredible restoration replaces a single tooth, multiple teeth, or a complete upper and lower arch. Learn more about dental implants here.
Where Can I Get Dental Implants?
The Boston Post Dental & Implants team in Sudbury, MA, wants to help you with your dental needs. Dental implants require enough jawbone to support the implant and no signs of periodontal disease. Your dentist must consider many factors when determining if you are a good candidate for dental implant treatment. We would love to evaluate your particular case and answer any questions about the implant dentistry process.
But if you are still wondering if dental implants are right for you, ask yourself the following questions:
Are you missing one or more teeth?
Do you have dentures that are no longer comfortable?
Have you ever been embarrassed by a denture or a bridge?
