Understanding the Procedure
Dental implants are now routine procedures and Browne Goetz & Miraglia PC has been offering dental implants since 1994. However, since dental implants is not a procedure you are likely to have to undertake often, we understand that the decision to have a tooth implant is not taken lightly.
To give you an idea of what to expect before, during and after receiving undergoing implants, see the possible processes you might undergo:
Traditional Dental Implants
The course of treatment outlined below is for a single dental implant or multiple dental implants (to replace a missing segment of teeth), is one of the several options available to you. During a consultation, your dentist will advise you on the best solution for you.
Single or multiple dental implants are usually performed in two stages separated by three to four months, but can also be immediate when appropriate (this will depend on your particular case). This is different when full dental implants are considered, that can often be performed as an immediate one-time procedure.
First visit: Examination & X-Rays
Examination and one or more set of x-rays will help us determine your dental health and suitability for dental implants, and all treatment options considered. In some cases, preliminary work may be required before dental implant or bridge placement to ensure an optimal result.
Modern implant techniques allow permanent, stable teeth to be installed in as little as three days.
Second Visit: Dental Implant Placement
During this visit a periodontist or oral surgeon will place the fixture that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth will be installed. The area is made numb and the fixture placed in the bone. Where possible we may often use keyhole surgery to minimize discomfort. The dental implants are given three to four months to bond with the bone.
Third Visit: Testing of Dental Implants
Once the dentist has confirmed that the dental implant has successfully bonded with the bone, the healing cap is removed and an impression is taken to make the final crown.
Fourth Visit: Fitting of Crown or Bridge
The final step is to permanently insert the new crown or bridge.
