The Dental Implant Process

The process for designing the above-listed types of prosthetics is fairly quick and may be complete in a matter of weeks. Dental implants take significantly more time, but they are worth it! The process begins with a minimally invasive surgery, wherein small prosthetic tooth roots (the dental implants) get inserted into the jawbone at precise, pre-planned positions. During the procedure, an expert creates small incisions in the gums before making space in the bone for the dental implants. After the implants are in place, the incisions are closed. Then, during a months-long process known as osseointegration, the implants and the surrounding tissue fuse together. After osseointegration, our team will design a custom bridge or denture to attach to the implants.
