The Dental Implants Process

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, the process may seem a bit long, but rest assured that the end result will be well worth your visits to our office. To begin, we’ll bring you in for a consultation with our Oakboro dentist and dental team. At your consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan based on your current dental health, your smile goals, and your lifestyle. We’ll take X-rays and do an exam to determine if dental implants are right for you and what type of restoration will work best. If we need to extract teeth or perform a bone graft to prepare your mouth for the implant, we’ll schedule that first.

Once we know that your mouth and jaw are ready for the implant, you’ll come in for a placement appointment. At this appointment, we surgically place a small titanium post – the implant – into your jawbone in place of your missing tooth or teeth. Titanium is a biocompatible material, which means over the span of a few months, it will actually fuse with your jawbone to provide a solid anchor for your restoration. After the implant has healed, you’ll come in to have your restoration created using impressions. Our dental lab will create your restoration, and then you’ll come back in for a final fitting and placement. Once your restoration is in place and fits properly, you’ll be all set to start enjoying your new, full smile!
