Dental Implant Treatment is a Team Effort
Dental implants require advanced planning and coordination between your primary dentist and your oral and maxillofacial surgeon. At your initial consultation, all of your options will be reviewed. Together, you, your dentist, and your surgeon will develop a personalized plan for your dental implant needs. Many patients need only basic x-rays prior to implant placement, while others require 3D x-rays and CT/computer-generated surgical guides prior to implant placement. After your implant is placed, most patients need to allow a minimum of 6 weeks to allow the implant to fuse with the jaw structure.
Your dentist can make a temporary false tooth for you to wear while you are missing your tooth. After your implant has fully incorporated into the jaw structure, your surgeon will refer you back to your dentist to have the final crown made. Your dentist will make the final crown. Our implant team stays in close contact with you and your dentist to ensure a successful outcome.
