What to Expect When Getting Dental Implants

dental implant surgery methuen, ma kalil dental Worried about your missing tooth? You can still have them replaced. Dental implants have been restoring the smiles of patients for many years now. It is what you need to replace a missing tooth and is a great alternative to expensive dentures.

What Happens During the Dental Implant Procedure

Placement of dental implants involves the following steps:

  • Removing the damaged tooth
  • Bone grafting could be done as your jawbone is prepared before surgery
  • Your jawbone is allowed to heal before the metal post is attached to the implant
  • Recovery and healing period can last for several months
  • Your surgeon will then place the abutment. This is the extension of the metal post that was previously installed in which a new artificial tooth or crown may already be placed.

Most of the entire dental implant process will be devoted to the healing of your jawbone, as well as waiting for new bone growth to create a solid base for the artificial tooth in your jaw.
