Are you curious to know the steps involved in dental implant treatment? If so, our dentist, Dr. Tae Chul Ho, is more than happy to help you. The more you know about the treatment, the more prepared you can feel in the dental chair. So, when you’re restoring your smile with a dental implant, you can expect the following steps:
Step No. 1: If the bone is in top-notch condition, your dentist will place a titanium post in the gum socket of your missing tooth. This will act as the root of the tooth and will hold it firmly in place. The jawbone will need to heal around the post to secure it in place. This should take some time.
Step No. 2: After the bone has healed and secured the post, your dentist will place an attachment piece to the post. This will eventually hold the replacement tooth, which is also known as a dental crown. Your dentist will then take measurements and pictures of your smile and will send that information to a dental lab where your replacement tooth will be made.
Step No. 3: When the crown is ready, your dentist will secure it over the attachment to give you the complete, functional, and beautiful smile you want.
