Take a Walk Through an Ideal Implant Procedure

January 22, 2016

man with a brilliant smile thanks to his successful implant procedureWould you rather replace your tooth or restore your tooth? Traditional tooth replacement options do a great job of filling in the gaps in your smile after tooth loss, but only dental implants fully restore the entire tooth. There’s nothing more appealing than a beautiful smile, and no one knows that better than the Piney Point Dental Implant Center team. That’s why we offer dental implants to support crowns for single tooth replacement, bridges replacing two or three consecutive teeth, and as well as partial and full dentures. Because the entire dental structure is restored, root and biting surface, implant-supported dental prosthetics look, feel, and function just like your natural smile.

A Seamless Dental Implant Process

At this point, you may be wondering, what’s the catch? Permanent tooth replacement that looks and feels like natural teeth sounds too good to be true. The reality is that there will be a time commitment, but at the end of the process, your beautiful, fully restored smile is worth the wait. Here’s how the process works:

  • The first step is a dental implant consultation with Dr. Steve L. Koo. This consultation is 100% free to you. During this visit we’ll examine your smile to determine whether you’re a good candidate for dental implants, thoroughly explain the procedure, and answer your questions with care.
  • If you decide during your consultation that dental implant treatment is something you wish to pursue, we begin planning your treatment. X-rays and CT scans are utilized to develop surgical guides to guarantee accurate implant placement. Any dental preparation can be done at this time as well including removing damaged teeth, preparing remaining teeth, and taking bite impressions to create your custom implant-support dental prosthetic.
  • Next, you’ll return for the implant surgery. The procedure varies in length depending on the number of implants needed to support the prosthetic and difficulty of placement. Once your surgery is completed, you’ll need 3 to 6 months of healing time during which you’ll wear a temporary prosthetic.
  • Once the gum tissue has healed and the dental implant fuses with the jawbone, you’ll return to our practice to be fitted with your custom-made tooth replacement.
  • Finally, you’ll look forward to a lifetime of dazzling, durable, dependable smiles.

In addition to the significant time commitment, many patients express concern regarding the expense of the implant procedures. We’re happy to work with patients, file insurance claims, and help you in any possible way. Call to speak to a patient concierge today.
