The Procedure

A dentist will examine the jaw and the gums, which will help in making a treatment plan. There are certain options that can be taken into consideration and the restorative dentistry and oral surgery professionals will decide which option is best for your problem. The implant has a tooth root and it will be out in the bone of the area of the missing tooth. This will heal after 6 to 12 weeks and this is the time needed for the implant to become stable once the jawbone grows around the implant and once it is fixed. Then an abutment, which is a connector, will be placed and connected with the root and this is where the new tooth will be placed and attached. New tooth will be made from the impression taken before and the process completes with the attachment of the replacement tooth crown to the abutment. Local anesthesia is used during the procedure so you may feel mild soreness after the procedure, but the painkillers can take care of this problem.
