Dental Implant Procedure
Usually this process is completed in a few visits. Next, by looking at the state of your teeth and your jaw bone density, our dentists decide whether you are a suitable candidate to the operation. If you don’t apply, we’re looking at other choices for you. If you’re a good candidate, bone grafting might be needed to reinforce the jaw bone. After this heals, we move on to implant placement.
Essentially the implant is a titanium post which is surgically implanted into the jaw bone. Upon placement, Dr. Eastman can place a temporary crown, while the bone heals and the post fuses to your jawbone through osseointegration. The permanent crown is put on top of the implant once the healing is completed and the post is stable, and then the procedure is complete.
