First, your damaged tooth will be removed. Then the jawbone will be prepared for the surgical Dental Implant Procedure. Once your jaw has healed, the surgeon will place the metal post implant in the bone. There will be another period allowed for healing that may take several months, after which time the oral surgeon will place the abutment. Once the soft tissues have healed, the dentist will create a mold of your teeth and jaw. Later, he or she will place the replacement tooth.

When Is Bone Grafting Required

If the bone of your jaw is not thick enough, if the bone tissue is too soft, or if healing is not proceeding as planned- you may require a bone graft to successfully complete the Dental Implant Procedure. To complete a bone graft, a portion of bone will be taken from another location on your body- most often the hip. Otherwise, a compatible donor or synthetic sample may be used. In the best case scenarios, the grafting can be completed in a single visit.

Installing The Implant

During your Dental Implant Procedure, your oral surgeon will perform a standard incision, incising the gum tissue and exposing the bone. Then, small pilot holes are drilled in the jaw bone. Your dental implant will be inserted in these holes for permanent placement.

Allowing Time For Bone Growth

Because bone is among the hardest and slowest growing tissues of the body, it will take some time for the bone surrounding the implant to heal and grow into place. Before your Dental Implant Procedure can be completed, the bone of your jaw must be in good condition. As osseointegration proceeds, your jaw bone will unite with the specialized surface of your dental implant. This is a long process and can take several months. During this time, you will need to take special eating precautions and be meticulous with your daily oral hygiene. Once the process of osseointegration process is sufficiently complete, your oral surgeon or dentist will place the abutment.

Aftercare

Whether your Dental Implant Procedure should be completed in a single visit or over the course of several appointments, you can expect to experience a period of recovery during which special care must be taken to ensure proper healing and recuperation. You can expect some swelling of the face and gums, bruising, mild to moderate pain at the implant site, as well as some minor bleeding. These symptoms are to be expected and should heal normally.
