The dental implant procedure process usually occurs in two stages. First, within your jawbone, the dental implants are placed. For a few months (usually 3 to 6) following the oral surgery, the implants are below your gum surface and are slowly bonding with the jawbone. During the beginning of the bonding time, each patient will need to stick to a soft foods diet. Also, during this time, we will be working hard to form new replacement teeth.
After the bonding of the implant and the jawbone has taken place our very own Tennessee Valley Oral Surgeons will be uncovering the implants and attaching small posts that go through the gums and be as anchors for the artificial teeth.
Utilizing the latest advances in the dental implant field, Drs. Laporte and Slater can put single stage implants. These types of implants don't require a subsequent strategy to reveal them, yet require at least a month and a half of recuperating time before the artificial teeth are finally set. There are even circumstances where the inserts can be set simultaneously as a tooth extraction – further limiting the quantity of surgeries.
Dental Implant placements are a collaboration between both oral and maxillofacial specialist and a dental specialist. While Drs. Laporte and Slater perform the dental implant surgical procedure, actual tooth extractions, bone grafting if it is needed, your dental specialist fits and makes the perpetual prosthesis. Your dental specialist will likewise make any brief prosthesis required during the implant process.

How accomplish dental implants work?
