Free Dental Implant Consultation

Dental implants

Dental implants are surgically placed in your jawbone, where they serve as the roots of missing teeth. The planning process for dental implants requires a precise multidisciplinary approach. The process of placing a dental implant involves multiple steps. The entire process can take many months from start to finish. Much of that time is devoted to healing and waiting for the growth of new bone in your jaw.

Because dental implants require one or more surgical procedures, you must have a thorough evaluation to prepare for the process, including a:

Comprehensive dental exam

You may have dental X-rays and 3D images taken, and have models made of your teeth and jaw.

Review of your medical history

Tell your doctor about any medical conditions and any medications you take, including prescription and over-the-counter drugs and supplements. If you have certain heart conditions or orthopaedic implants, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics before surgery to help prevent infection.

Treatment plan

Tailored to your situation, this plan considers factors such as how many teeth you need replacing and the condition of your jawbone and remaining teeth.
