Understanding the Dental Implant Procedure
An implant is a small screw that is placed and secured in your jawbone. Your dentist will assess your jaw bone to determine if you need a bone grafting procedure before placing your implant. If your jaw bone is too soft or not thick enough, this procedure is done to make sure the implant can be secured.
Following bone grafting, once your jaw bone has healed, your dentist places the metal post of the dental implant in your jaw bone, making an opening in your gum to expose the bone.
A hole is drilled into the part of the bone where the metal post is placed. The post is implanted deep into the bone since the implant now serves as your tooth root.
Once the metal post is inserted, the area heals for three to six months as the implant gradually bonds with your jaw bone. During this time, you can wear a temporary partial denture and eat softer foods.
When you return to your practice after your implant has healed, the dentist will place the crown (or the tooth) on your implant.
