What’s involved in getting a dental implant?
The first step is a consultation with one of our Toronto dentists. They will listen to what you want to achieve, and begin to formulate a treatment plan.
To get a complete picture of the problem and treatment options, the dentist will perform a clinical examination. This examination will include x-rays (at our Yorkville practice, we use digital x-rays to aid in our diagnosis and treatment plans).
The implant is surgically placed in your jaw. The dentist will use a local anesthetic, and our team is committed to making sure your procedure is a comfortable as possible. Before your oral surgery our team will walk you through the procedure and what steps are taken to reduce pain.
After the surgery, the bone needs to heal. This period of healing is called osseointegration and it lets the jawbone to heal and integrate the implant into the bone. You may need a temporary restoration during this period, which our dentist will discuss with you.
Once your jaw has healed, your dentist will place the new crown, bridge or denture.
