THE DENTAL IMPLANT PROCEDURE & RECOVERY PROCESS
Because the procedure involves anchoring the implant to the patient's
jawbone, the surgery is completed in multiple stages. The procedure calls
for anesthesia, which our doctors are highly qualified in administering.
The healing process is relatively quick, and the procedure will be complete
once the replacement teeth, bridge, or overdenture has been attached.
Stages of the dental implant surgery:
- Stage one includes burying the implant underneath the gums and flush with
the bone. The implant replaces and acts as the root of the tooth. After
this stage is completed, there is a healing period to ensure successful
- Stage two begins after the healing process. The surgeon removes some of
the overlying gum and the abutment is added. The abutment is the post
that comes in many forms and holds the prosthetic tooth.
- The final stage is completed is completed when the dentist places the prosthetic
tooth or teeth on the abutments. The design of the abutment and implant
can withstand lots of pressure and wear, making them the desirable choice
for many people.
After the procedure, medications will be prescribed to prevent swelling,
reduce the risk of infection, and decrease the amount of pain and discomfort
the patient may experience. It is essential to maintain a sufficient oral
health, in order to ensure that your dental implants last as long and
function as properly as intended. This means brushing and flossing around
the implants at least twice a day, and following any other specific instructions
you are given. To make sure the implants last as long as they are intended
to, it is also recommended to schedule routine deep cleanings.

Dental implants are not for everyone, and patients must meet several criteria
to qualify for this procedure. To start, the patient must be in good health,
with the correct bone structure to support the implant. For the implant
to function properly, they also must have healthy gums. For these reasons,
individuals with chronic dental issues, periodontal disease, or certain
health conditions like diabetes, are not good candidates for implants.
Dental implants are also not recommended for frequent users of tobacco
products or alcohol.
