When a tooth is missing a dental implant with a crown can be a good option to replace it. Although each case will be different, placing an implant generally involves several phases. First we will numb the area to make you comfortable. An opening is made in your gums and a channel is shaped in the bone to receive the implant. Next we place the body of the implant into the channel. Healing can take several months as the implant becomes securely fused to the bone. In the time we might place a temporary replacement tooth. The next phase includes a series of appointment to fabricate your final restoration.
We would remove the temporary and make impressions of your mouth including the implant. A crown will them be created and secured into place.
