Dental Implants What to Expect
Dental implants provide close to the equivalent stability and function of a natural human tooth. The implant, made of high-quality biocompatible medical grade titanium, is used surgically placed as a prosthetic root structure.
The dental implant post is surgically placed into the jaw. As the implant post begins to heal it fuses with the bone, promoting natural cell regeneration for long-term support and stability.
Implants typically take about 3-6 months to fully integrate with the jaw. Once Dr. Dham determines that the implant is stable, an abutment is attached to the implant, extending the small screw past the gum line. The abutment is used as an anchor holding the final dental restoration firmly in place.
Dr. Dham works with patients to build a dental restoration that will be secured using the dental implants. Using 3-D digital scanning and modern dental materials, a natural, beautiful restoration will be custom fit to your oral specifications. Once the implants are healed, the final restoration is placed. Many patients will wear a temporary restoration in the interim while waiting for their implants to heal.
