    Tooth Integration

    Process of Dental Implants

    Dental implant procedure involves surgically placing a metal post into the jawbone, allowing for attachment of a lifelike artificial tooth, restoring function and aesthetics to the smile.


    Initial Consultation and Examination

    The process begins with a thorough consultation and examination by a qualified dentist or oral surgeon. This includes reviewing your medical and dental history, performing a comprehensive oral examination, and possibly taking X-rays or CT scans to assess your bone structure and determine if you’re a suitable candidate for dental implants.


    Treatment Planning

    Based on the examination results, the dentist will develop a personalized treatment plan. This plan outlines the number of implants needed, their optimal placement locations, and the type of restoration (crown, bridge, or denture) that will be attached to the implants.


    Preparation and Extractions (if necessary)

    If there are damaged or decayed teeth present in the implant area, they may need to be extracted prior to implant placement. In some cases, bone grafting or other procedures may be necessary to build up the jawbone if it’s insufficient to support implants.


    Implant Placement

    During this surgical procedure, the dentist will place the dental implants into the jawbone. This is typically done using local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia to ensure your comfort. The implants are usually made of titanium, which has the unique ability to fuse with the bone through a process called osseointegration.


    Healing and Osseointegration

    After implant placement, a healing period of several months is usually required to allow the implants to integrate with the jawbone. During this time, a temporary restoration may be placed to maintain aesthetics and function.


    Abutment Placement

    Once osseointegration is complete, a small connector piece called an abutment is attached to the implant. The abutment serves as a foundation for the final restoration and is often placed during a minor surgical procedure.


    Impressions and Restoration Design

    Dental impressions are taken to create an accurate model of your mouth. These impressions are used to design the final restoration, which could be a crown, bridge, or denture. The restoration is customized to match your natural teeth in terms of color, shape, and size.


    Final Restoration Placement

    Once the final restoration is ready, it is securely attached to the abutment. The dentist will ensure that the restoration fits properly and looks natural. You will be given instructions on how to care for your new dental implant and restoration, and regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your progress.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Discover essential information about dental implants: from candidacy and procedure to longevity and care. Get answers to common questions in this concise FAQ guide.
    Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials like titanium that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They provide a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth.
    Generally, individuals with good oral health, enough jawbone density, and healthy gums are good candidates. Your dentist will evaluate your specific case to determine eligibility.
    With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. Regular oral hygiene practices and dental check-ups contribute to their longevity.
    The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia, ensuring minimal discomfort during the surgery. Afterward, mild discomfort can be managed with pain medications.
    Like any surgical procedure, dental implant placement carries some risks, such as infection, nerve damage, or implant failure. However, these risks are relatively rare and can often be minimized with proper planning.
    The timeline varies depending on individual cases. After implant placement, it may take a few months for the implant to fuse with the bone (osseointegration). The complete process can take several months to a year.
    Yes, dental implants can support various types of restorations, including single crowns, bridges, or even full dentures. Your dentist will design a treatment plan based on your needs.
    Initially, you might need to stick to a soft diet while your mouth heals. Once fully healed, there are usually no significant dietary restrictions, allowing you to enjoy a wide range of foods.
    Dental implant care is similar to caring for natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and professional dental cleanings are essential to maintain oral health and extend the life of your implants.
    Dental implant coverage varies among insurance plans. Some medical or dental insurance plans might cover a portion of the cost. It’s advisable to check with your insurance provider for details on coverage.

    It’s hard to beat the dentist I had growing up which created a positive impression of dentists for me — but West Lakes I’m Chaska has done it! Everyone I’ve worked with is thorough, efficient, and super nice. Also, Colleen is fantastic. She goes the extra mile when dealing with insurance, she provides estimates before services are performed, and she has fit me into the schedule last minute.
