Patients in the Brampton, ON area with missing teeth now how many great options to restore a beautiful and functional smile. One of these options is dental implants. Most dental implant placement procedures can be easily performed in your dentist’s office. Supplemental surgical procedures, like bone or tissue augmentation, may also be performed as separate procedures or at the same time as your dental implant placement. These procedures can increase your chances of dental implant success and make your oral tissues healthier in the long run. Here is some additional information about the specific steps you will undergo during your dental implant placement.
Dental implants are usually installed at your doctor’s office in just four easy steps: 1) The initial examination, 2) Inserting of the fixture, 3) Attaching the abutment, and 4) Installing the crown.
The time for your procedure will depend on several factors, including the number of teeth involved, the state of your oral health, which teeth are being replaced, and if supplemental procedures are necessary. These factors will also determine the number of visits to the dental implant provider throughout the treatment period. On average, the entire surgical phase usually takes between 3-6 months. Supplemental procedures can add months and up to a year onto the total treatment time. For more information on supplemental procedures, please review our informative Supplemental Procedures page.
The beauty of dental implants is that unlike dentures or bridges, they can be cared for just as you would your natural teeth. Patients must brush and floss every day and visit their dentist regularly. Your implants will be cleaned during regular dental check-ups. However, patients should examine their implant area and keep a close eye on their teeth and gums for abnormalities. Any changes, swelling, or pain should be reported to your dentist immediately.
