Dental Implants Surgery

The surgery process starts with an initial consultation with Dr. Ankur Patel. Dental Implants mainly has three parts:

  • Implant: It is a metal post or screw which acts as a root to your new tooth which is going to be fixed permanently in your jawbone.
  • Abutment: Abutment is a metal nut which is placed over the implant post and is also connected to the artificial tooth or dental crown.
  • Crown: It is an artificial tooth or dental cap placed over the abutment. An abutment is made of zirconium or porcelain for an aesthetic looks and durability

Surgery preparation

In your first visit at Caring Smiles Dental office, the dentist will examine your past medical history and medication that you are taking. Next, the dental specialist will take an x-ray of your mouth to assess the condition. Local anesthesia is given to numb the surgery part of your mouth to avoid the pain. To put an implant post the oral surgeon makes a cut to the gum and expose the bone, the holes are created in the bone with a special dental drilling machine to place the metal post.

Placing an Implant Post

A metal post is implanted deep in the jawbone which serves as a root.

Once the implant post is placed in the bone the dentist will ask you to take some rest as the implant post need few months to fuse with the bone which is a healing process is also called osseointegration. During this process, the jawbone growth starts and metal post fuse with the bone and act as a permanent root to the new tooth.

Placing an Abutment

Once the osseointegration is over the dentist will place an Abutment on to the implant post. An abutment acts as a bridge between the dental implant and dental crown. This process is done with a small surgery by giving local anesthesia.

Placing a Dental Crown
