If you’re trying to decide if you want to improve your smile with a dental implant but you’re not sure what to expect with the treatment, then our Transcend Dental team is happy to help you!
Dental implants in Royersford, Pennsylvania, are beautiful, strong, and reliable dental restorations that replace your missing teeth and provide stunning, long-term results. The process involved in placing the implant includes the following steps:
Step 1: In order to have dental implants, you need strong and healthy gums and jawbones. So, the first step will be an examination. Your dentist will thoroughly examine your entire oral cavity, which may include taking a series of X-rays. If your mouth is in top-notch condition, your dentist will create a treatment plan just for you.
Step 2: The treatment will begin with an oral surgeon. The surgeon will place a small titanium post into the bone socket of your missing tooth. The bone will then need to heal around the post to keep it in place. This may take six to twelve weeks.
Step 3: Once your bone has healed, your dentist will attach an abutment to the post. The abutment will hold the replacement tooth in place. Then, your dentist will create a dental crown that is perfect for you. When it’s ready, it will be placed over the abutment.
