What You Need To Know About Dental Implants


We use them every day.

People see them every day.

Unfortunately, for some teeth can be painful – both emotionally and physically.

If you have been struggling with your smile or suffering from the pain that comes from losing teeth, then you may be an ideal candidate for dental implants.

However, there are some things you need to know before you decide to have your teeth extracted and replaced with dental implants.  As with any permanent medical procedure, it’s important consult with our team to see if you are a candidate for dental implants, discuss the risks and set expectations for the results.

Here are some important things you should keep in mind as you make your decision;

What Are Dental Implants?

If you have lost just one or several of your teeth, then you may want to consider dental implants.

A dental implant consists of a titanium post, similar to what is used to replace knees or hips, that is implanted into your jaw replacing the root of a failed tooth.  This implant post forms the base upon which a replacement tooth will be placed.

There is much more that goes into this process, but in the end, they will look like natural teeth.

How Is The Actual Procedure Done And How Long Will It Take?

The process will vary from person to person, and the time required will be determined by a few factors, such as the availability or amount of bone in your jaw.  Please keep in mind that your procedure may take more or less time.

A traditional dental implant will take place in two separate appointments.  The first appointment will call for an incision to be made within your gums to allow for a hole to be drilled into the actual jawbone.  Once the hole is created, the implant can then be placed and the exposed incision will then be closed with stitches.

Depending on the placement of the implant, you can expect the healing time to be any where from two to seven months.  Your dental professional will be able to tell through an X-Ray if you are ready for the second surgery, by seeing if the implant and bone have become fused together.

At this point, another small incision will be made in order to open up the top of the implant.  To ensure that the gums are guided correctly to heal properly, a collar will be put into place on the top of the implant.  This will stay in place for roughly one to two weeks.

Please Note:  There may be some instances where you may not need a collar and can move on to the next step in the process, which is the placement of an abutment (attachment) and temporary crown.

Once the tissue has healed, the collar can then be taken out.  Your dental professional may then fit you with a temporary crown and abutment.  The temporary crown is softer and meant to protect the implant, while letting the jawbone get stronger.

You can expect to have the temporary crown in place for up to six weeks.  The next phase is the final one, where the permanent crown will be placed on the abutment, (this can be done by either screwing on the crown or cementing it into place).

The Most Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Dental Implants:

How Do You Maintain An Implant?

You care and maintain your implanted teeth just as you do the rest of your teeth, which means brushing and flossing on a daily basis and cleanings every six months. It is important follow up with our dental team to check bone around the implant every year.

What Can You Expect To Pay?

The cost of dental implants and out of pocket expenses will vary from individual to individual.  Each mouth is unique and everyone’s circumstances are different. While some procedures are very straightforward, there may be other procedures that are necessary and come at an additional cost (you will always be informed ahead of time of any potential costs).
