In some situations, it is impossible to save a tooth. However, an implant can be used to ensure that surrounding teeth do not need to be prepared for a bridge. Dental implants are metal posts that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums to provide stable support for artificial teeth.
Some people who have lost bone in their jaw can still get implants, but first the bone must be augmented with a bone graft. The first step is to take a 3D CT scan of the jaw, our team will discuss your scan results, rate the condition of the bone and decide how to put implants. After administering local anesthesia, the implant will be carefully inserted into the bone. The gums will be sewn above the implant site and you will be left to heal for about two the six months depending on the site of the implant. After this time small contoured healing cap will be attached to the implant to connect the implant to surface of the gums and help shape the gums and receive the final crown. On final step doctor will unscrew the healing cap and screw in an impression coping, which is specifically made for your implant. The healing cap will be replaced and your next visit will be in two weeks for the final insertion of your crown. The healing cap will be removed and the permanent custom abutment will be tried along with the implant crown.
