LONG-LASTING APPROACH FOR TOOTH REPLACEMENT
Dental implants are perhaps the most significant dental innovation of our generation! They are designed to mimic the entire structure of our natural teeth, With the highest success rate of all tooth replacement options, implants are the best long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. When properly placed and cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Dental implant surgery is usually performed in stages over several months, though at Revive Dental, we can sometimes provide same-day implants!
The traditional method of implant surgery consists of several stages, as follows:
First, the dentist places the implant post into the jawbone, and stitches closed the site where the implant was placed.
The patient goes through a healing period during which the jawbone fuses with the implant; this period usually lasts three to six months.
Once the healing period is done, the dentist makes an incision to expose the implant and places a healing cap on top of the implant, which helps the surrounding gum tissue to heal.
After a few weeks, he removes the healing cap and attaches the abutment.
Finally, the dentist makes an impression of your teeth and sends it to the dental lab to create your custom-made crown.
For cases in which structure must be built up to support the implant, additional procedures such as bone grafting or sinus augmentation must be completed before the implant can be placed. At Revive Dental, we can offer highly advanced regenerative therapy treatments which can greatly quicken the healing time for bone grafting and other related implant surgery procedures.
