Dental Implants ProcedureThe "dental implants" procedure requires several visits spread out over a period of several months. This completes several phases of the dental implants process to restore your smile.
Our Torrance cosmetic dentist will examine your teeth and take digital x-rays. The digital x-rays are evaluated to help define the health of your gum tissue and jawbone that are essential for placing the implants. Impressions of your teeth are also made to learn the exact spacing that is available for implants. The area where the implant will be placed is prepped and the implant will be placed into the jawbone.
After this application, the implant will be healed and will fuse to the bone in a process called Osseointegration for a period of about six months. The type of implant that is selected may require an additional procedure for placement.
When the implant has healed correctly, a dental crown is constructed and placed onto the implanted post. This portion may require several different fittings and can last up to two months in length. When the dental implants are completely healed, the dental crowns are permanently attached to provide a permanent and attractive upgrade to your smile.
