After you decide that dental implants are the right option for your needs, you will schedule a comprehensive examination. Here are the steps you can expect after:
Step One: Dr. Svoboda will take x-rays, examine your teeth, and look at your jawbone. This examination will allow us to determine if your jawbone and gum tissues are healthy enough for oral surgery.
Step Two: Next, an incision will be made in your gum line, a small hole will be drilled, and a titanium piece will be surgically implanted. The incision area will be sutured and you will be sent home for a period of healing. It is critical that you avoid putting any pressure on the implant site until it has fully healed.
Step Three: After a few months of healing, a middle piece called an abutment will be attached to the fixture and you will be sent home for an additional period of healing.
Step Four: While your implant area is healing, Dr. Svoboda will begin carefully crafting your replacement tooth to perfectly match the color, shape, and size of your other teeth. Having an in-house lab allows us to maximize your treatment time and keep your expenses down.
Step Five: Once the crafting of your tooth is done, Dr. Svoboda will attach it to the abutment and your new smile will be complete.
Here are the traits Dr. Svoboda likes to see in dental implant patients:
Other conditions that can interfere with dental implants include:
Despite the wonderful benefits of the treatment, not all patients make good candidates for dental implants. It is important to note that a patient must be examined by a doctor prior to deciding if they can undergo dental implant treatment. Doctors and dentists look at each individual patient and their total circumstances before deciding if they will successfully heal from insertion of dental implants.
Your first step in the dental implant process is to make an appointment with Dr. Svoboda for a comprehensive evaluation. This evaluation will include an examination of your mouth and teeth and a thorough review of your medical and dental histories. You will likely be X-rayed or have a CT scan. This will provide us valuable information on the amount of bone in your jaw, the shape, and where important things are, like your nerves and sinuses. Finally, Dr. Svoboda will discuss the options available to you and you will talk about the dental implant procedure, the cost, and any possible complications. It is extremely important that you let us know all about your medical status (past and present), medications you are taking, and any other health concerns.
