When it comes to replacing one or more missing teeth, dental implants from Vitangeli Dental in Englewood OH are state-of-the-art. We’ll use this short article to describe what to expect from placement: before, during, and after.
This is how implant placement works:
Before the Procedure
We begin with X-rays, an exam, and a consultation. We’ll take numerous X-rays of your teeth and jaw. Images are taken from several angles. It’s critical to confirm that you have enough healthy bone structure.
If you don’t have adequate bone at the implant site, we may recommend bone grafting surgery.
During Implant Surgery
First, we’ll use local anesthesia to numb the implant location.
Then we’ll make an incision in the gums. This opens the gums so the bone is accessible. A small hole the diameter and depth of the post is drilled into the jaw, and the implant post is screwed into place.
This procedure will take about an hour.
After Implant Surgery
Patients usually feel little pain after the anesthesia wears off. There may be some swelling at the implant location. Slight bruising may occur.
Most dental implant patients can go back to work after the surgery.
