Understanding Dental Implants

Dental implants are a popular and effective solution for replacing missing teeth. They consist of titanium posts that are surgically implanted into the jawbone, serving as artificial tooth roots. Once the implants integrate with the bone, they provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth, offering numerous benefits for patients with missing teeth.

Preparation and Procedure

At Neo TrueNorth, we prioritize patient comfort and satisfaction throughout the dental implant process. The procedure typically involves the following steps:

  1. Initial Consultation: During the initial consultation, the dentist will evaluate the patient’s oral health, take dental impressions, and discuss treatment options. X-rays or CT scans may be taken to assess bone density and determine the optimal placement of the implants.

  2. Surgical Placement: Dental implant surgery is performed under local anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort. The dentist surgically places the titanium implants into the jawbone at precise locations determined during the planning stage. In some cases, bone grafting may be necessary to augment the jawbone and provide adequate support for the implants.

  3. Healing Period: After implant placement, the implants need time to osseointegrate, or fuse with the surrounding bone. This process typically takes several months, during which temporary restorations may be placed to maintain aesthetics and function.

  4. Abutment Placement: Once osseointegration is complete, abutments are attached to the implants. Abutments are small connectors that protrude from the gums and provide support for the final dental restorations.

  5. Final Restoration: Finally, custom-made dental crowns, bridges, or dentures are fabricated to match the color, shape, and size of the patient’s natural teeth. These restorations are then attached to the abutments, completing the dental implant process.
