Dental implant procedure
For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within your jawbone. For the first three to six months following surgery, the implants are beneath the surface of the gums, gradually bonding with the jawbone. You should be able to wear a temporary and eat a soft diet during this time. At the same time, your restorative dentist designs the final bridgework, denture or crown, which will ultimately improve both function and aesthetics.
Once the implant has bonded to the jawbone, the second phase of your dental implants in Scottsdale begins. The surgeon will uncover the implants and attach a small healing collar. our doctors can then start making your new teeth. They will take an impression, and then connect posts or attachments to the implants, in order to anchor the replacement teeth. The entire procedure usually takes six to eight months, and most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily lives.
