What to Expect
Dr. Schuyler or Dr. Laventure will carefully place an implant post into the area where your tooth used to be, and our team will apply a little bit of local anesthetic, so you won’t feel a thing. The dentist will put a cap on top of the implants while the area heals, and over the course of several weeks, the bone will fuse to the implant. During that time, your crown will be created especially for you in our laboratory so that it matches your natural teeth. Then, once your implant posts have healed, the dentist will attach an abutment to the implant so a crown, fixed bridge, or anchor for dentures can be placed. Each of our patients’ crowns are customized to their exact specifications and are permanently attached to the implant.
Dental implants are a common procedure that can be done right in our office, whether the tooth was lost due to trauma, accident or disease. If you aren’t sure if dental implants are right for you, just call our practice today and talk to our team to learn more about the benefits. Dental implants are a great way to return the natural appearance, functionality, and overall health of your teeth, and dramatically improve your confidence.
