The ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Adequate bone in your jaw is needed to support the implant, and the best candidates have healthy gum tissues that are free of periodontal disease.
Step One: Diagnosis and Decision-Making
After gathering information via your oral X-rays and CBCT, we will assess the treatment options open to you. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the various solutions so you are well-informed on every aspect of the procedure before making a decision.
Step Two: Implant Placement
The implant will be surgically inserted into your jaw using local anesthetic. Depending on the individual case, a temporary restoration may be placed on the implant during the healing stage, while the bone around the implant grows. A temporary restoration allows you to enjoy a natural-looking smile throughout the entire process.
Step Three: Healing
During the healing phase, the implant bonds with your jaw bone. The bone around the implant grows and integrates with the implant surface, a process that takes anywhere between four weeks and a few months. After approximately one week, your stitches will be removed. Diligent oral hygiene during this phase is vital for successful healing.
Step Four: Your New Teeth are Created
As your implant bonds itself to the bone during the healing phase, your dentist and laboratory partners will to create your personalized artificial tooth crown. This will be placed once the healing phase is complete.
Step Five: Restoration Placement
Your final restoration is connected to the implant, leaving you free to smile, bite, and chew like before.
HOW DO I GET STARTED
A dental implant is usually done in stages over a few months, with a series of minor operations and tests.

If you are considering implants, you must have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. If your bone is too thin or soft and unable to support an implant, you may require a bone graft. Or if there is not enough bone height in the upper jaw or the sinuses are too close to the jaw, you may require a sinus lift. Dental implants are suitable for most adults with good general health. They can only be used once the jawbone has stopped growing and so generally are not used with younger patients.
