What is the process for completing a dental implant?
Living with a compromised tooth can be frustrating. Luckily there are excellent solutions such as dental implants that not only restore your smile but also protect your oral health.
If you are interested in learning how dental implants in Lewes can replace your failing tooth, the first step is consultation with one of our dentists to ensure that you have enough healthy bone to support the implant properly.
Next, you'll work with a trusted oral surgeon who will place the implant into your jawbone during a simple surgical procedure. This is an outpatient procedure performed with general anesthetic, and most patients are surprised at how smooth and straightforward the process is. Your implant is given a period of three to six months to fully heal and integrate with your bone, which creates a firm foundation for your new tooth and also works to keep your bone stimulated.
Follow Up for a Dental Crown
When the healing process is complete, you will return to The Dental Group to have your tooth restored with a porcelain crown for a single tooth replacement or a bridge or denture for multiple missing teeth.
