Implant placement is the first stage of treatment when receiving an implant. An implant consists of two parts – the implant post and the implant restoration. The implant post is a small screw, usually made of a biocompatible material such as titanium. This post is surgically inserted into your jawbone to take the place of the tooth root. After this procedure, there is a period of healing to allow the post to integrate with the jawbone. Once integrated, the post performs the same functions as the tooth root, stimulating the supporting bone to provide a stable foundation for your teeth and implant.
If you have lost a tooth, you are a candidate for implant dentistry. As long as your teeth and gums are healthy, you will be able to receive an implant without difficulty. Our dentists will provide treatment for any pre-existing conditions, such as tooth decay or periodontal disease, before performing an implant placement procedure.
