Let Your Oral Surgeon Transform Your Smile with Dental Implants

dca-blog_oral-surgery-three-people

If you are missing one or more teeth, it can affect your self-confidence and your ability to eat and speak correctly. A dental implant can replace your missing tooth with a natural-looking, fully functional artificial one. Your dental implant surgery will be performed on an outpatient basis by an oral surgeon, and it generally occurs in stages. The entire process can take a minimum of three months, but it may take up to nine months or even longer. Most of the time is spent waiting for healing and the growth of new jawbone to stabilize the implant.

Will I Need a Bone Graft? 



You must have enough healthy jawbone to support an implant before one is placed. If the bone is too thin or soft, bone grafting may be required. The graft involves removing a portion of bone from another part of your body and transplanting it to your jaw. It may take up to nine months for the new bone to grow and stabilize. Oral surgeons are trained to handle this complicated procedure.

How Does Dental Implant Surgery Start? 



To place an implant, the oral surgeon will make an incision into your gum tissue to expose the bone. A hole is drilled to make room for the metal post, which serves as the artificial tooth’s root. The post is implanted deep into the bone.

Can the Dentist Implant My New Tooth Right Away? 



Once the post is in place, you must wait for osseointegration to occur; during this process, your jawbone grows and bonds with the surface of the metal implant. The process may take as long as six months. Most oral surgeons will provide a temporary, removable denture to wear while you wait for the site to heal.

What Is an Abutment? 



The abutment is a small device that attaches to the crown of the artificial tooth. To place the abutment, your surgeon will reopen the gum, and attach the piece to the post. After the procedure, the site is allowed to heal for several weeks. When the site has healed, your surgeon can finally place your new artificial teeth. Depending on your needs, you may have a removable implant prosthesis or a permanent, fixed one.

What Can I Expect After a Dental Implant Procedure? 



After your surgery, you may experience swelling, bruising, pain, and minor bleeding. If your symptoms get worse in the first few days after your procedure, call your oral surgeon.
