How are dental implants done?
The first step is to extract the problematic or diseased tooth. We will then assess the bone to ensure that it is strong enough to support and implant. In some cases, a bone graft may be necessary. The next step is to surgically placed and implant into the bone. We then wait for the bone to heal around the implant to ensure strength. We then have patients come back on subsequent visits to take molds that will be used to fabricate the tooth replacements, called implant crowns. On the next visit, we mounted the crown to the implant using an abutment.
