Smileland Dental Family Dentistry & Orthodontics in Maywood, CA, is committed to providing our patients with exceptional dental care, and one of our most sought-after procedures is dental implants. If you’re considering dental implants, here’s what you can expect during your visit to our practice.
The first step in the dental implant process is a thorough consultation and evaluation with our experienced dental professionals. During this appointment, we’ll carefully examine your mouth, teeth, and jawbone to determine if dental implants are a suitable treatment option for you. We’ll also review your medical history and any medications you’re taking to ensure that dental implants are a safe choice.
Once we’ve determined that dental implants are appropriate for you, we’ll schedule an appointment for the implant placement procedure. During this procedure, we’ll numb the area around the implant site and carefully place the implant into your jawbone.
After the implant placement procedure, your jawbone will need time to heal and integrate with the implant. This process, called osseointegration, typically takes several weeks or months. During this time, we may place a temporary crown or bridge over the implant to help you maintain your smile.
Once your jawbone has fully healed and integrated with the implant, we’ll schedule an appointment to place the final restoration. This may include a crown, bridge, or denture, depending on your specific needs. We’ll ensure that your new teeth look and feel natural and provide you with proper instructions on how to care for your implants to ensure their longevity.
At Smileland Dental Family Dentistry & Orthodontics, we’re dedicated to providing our patients with a comfortable and stress-free dental implant experience. Our experienced team is committed to helping you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile that you can be proud of. Contact us today to schedule your dental implant consultation.
