Implant Placement and Restoration Q & A
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are replacements for a missing tooth and tooth root. The dental implants are designed to look and act just like a normal tooth including withstanding pressure normally put on teeth. Since dental implants are attached to the jaw bone, they not only help replace a missing tooth but also stabilize the jaw and help it to maintain its shape and density.
How are Implants Placed?
During the first visit, the patient will have the surgical portion of the implant placement completed. The next visit will address the making of the actual crown. During this visit, the patient will have an impression made of their teeth in order to create a replacement which fits perfectly. During the final visit, the crown is attached to the implantand shaped to blend with the surrounding teeth.
