What does getting dental implants involve?

The process of getting implants is greatly involved and may require many visits over several months to complete.  A normal implant procedure includes the following steps:

  1. X-rays and impressions (molds) are taken to determine bone, gum tissue and spacing for implant.
  2. The implant is surgically placed into the bone to allow it to heal and integrate for up to six months.
  3. Artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor

​Once the process is complete, good oral hygiene and regular dental visits will aid in the life of the new implant.​
