The first step is finding out if you are a good candidate for implant placement. The Doctors need to make sure you have enough bone to hold an implant in place.
We would send you for an evaluation with our periodontist, at that time he would examine you and possibly sends you for a scan to check your bone levels.
About implant dentistry
Most cases it is a single surgical procedure where the periodontist will place the implant in your jawbone and a healing cap above the gum line. After 3 month the periodontist will review the implant for the final stage of treatment. There are some circumstances where the implant will stay under the gum for 3-6 month while it hardens in the bone.
The next step is for the periodontist to uncover the implant from the gum and put a neck on the implant. You will then come back to Dental Loving Care to have a crown attach to the implant.
