What are the steps for a Dental Implant?

  1. Your damaged tooth is removed.

  2. Your jawbone is prepared for surgery, a process that may involve bone grafting.

  3. After your jawbone heals (6-12 weeks), your oral surgeon places the dental implant metal post in your jawbone.

  4. Once the implant has bonded to the jawbone, a small connector post (called an abutment) is attached to the post to securely hold the new tooth. 

  5. To make the new tooth or teeth, your dentist makes impressions of your teeth, and creates a model of your bite (which captures all of your teeth, their type, and arrangement)

  6. A replacement tooth, called a crown, is then attached to the abutment.
