What is the dental implant process?

Many dentists consider dental implants an investment in your long-term oral health. Unlike other tooth replacement choices, this is the only option that replaces your tooth and its vital root. The root may help stimulate your jawbone against deterioration, and it guards against tooth shifting, which can lead to undue enamel wear.

The dental implant process starts with an evaluation in our dental surgery. Your Pascoe Vale dentist wants to make sure that implants are the best option for you. If it’s a go, your dentist plans your implant surgery.

On this day, we make sure the treatment area is numb before starting placement. Then your dentist implants your replacement root. Over several months, the root bonds with your bone to create a stable foundation for your replacement tooth.

If you have significant tooth loss, you may also qualify for an implant-retained denture in Pascoe Vale. This means four to six implant posts to support an arch of replacement teeth.

When healing is complete, we attach your replacement tooth or prosthetic.

You brush and floss as usual, visit your dentist regularly for exams and teeth cleans, and treat your implant just like a natural tooth.
