What to know about the procedure for getting Dental Implants

Dental implants are one of the most popular and versatile tooth replacement options available today. The process for getting dental implants placed takes a few visits over the course of several months, but with the unparalleled functionality, aesthetics, and oral health benefits that dental implants offer, patients typically find it well worth the wait! At Dentistry On 10 in Mississauga, Ontario, Dr. Rina Kotecha offers implant solutions for patients missing anywhere from one tooth to a full arch of missing teeth. Read on to learn more about the procedure for getting dental implants placed.

Determining whether you are a good candidate

The first step in determining whether you are a good candidate for dental implants is a consultation with your dentist. Dr. Rina Kotecha will evaluate your current oral health and talk with you about your goals and treatment preferences before recommending tooth replacement options that are a good fit for your needs. During the consultation, we will also talk with you about the cost and answer any questions that you may have about the procedure and its pros and cons for your unique situation.

Placing the dental implant

The process for placing and finishing a dental implant takes a few steps:

  • Surgical placement of the implant: After numbing the area to ensure you are pain-free and comfortable, Dr. Rina Kotecha will make an incision in your gums and then surgically place the implant in the jawbone. As the implant heals, it will fuse with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration, which typically takes a few months.
  • Abutment placement: After healing, a small piece called an abutment is placed on the implant, which is where your final tooth restoration will connect to the implant.
  • Final tooth restoration placement: The final step is to place your beautiful new tooth or teeth on the implant. This may be a crown for a single missing tooth, a bridge for multiple teeth, or a denture for a full arch of teeth.
