During placement surgery, Dr. Martin will anchor a titanium post into the jawbone. Once it has healed, it can support several different restorations, including crowns, bridges, and dentures.
It can be tempting to avoid surgery and replace your lost teeth with less expensive alternatives. However, the benefits of surgery far outweigh the cost. Patients can enjoy:
While the timeline for treatment can vary significantly for each patient, it is typically broken down into several distinct stages:
This process can take anywhere from several months to a full year, depending on the needs of the patient. During your initial consultation, Dr. Martin will give you an idea of how long your treatment will take.
The surgery itself is an outpatient procedure and can be completed in a few hours at our office. To begin, the area is numbed with local anesthesia and a small incision is made in the gums. Through this incision, the doctor can make a small hole in the jawbone. Using special dental instruments, the implant is then strategically placed in the jawbone and the incision is closed.
Immediately after surgery, some discomfort and tenderness are to be expected. However, these side effects can be managed with prescription medications and over-the-counter pain relievers. You can also apply a cold compress to the face in 20-minute increments to reduce swelling.
With proper maintenance, brushing and flossing, many dental implants can last a lifetime.
You will be provided with a detailed list of post-operative instructions. In most cases, patients are comfortable within a few days, although the implant site will continue to heal for several weeks.
Living with missing teeth is not only difficult and embarrassing, but it can affect your function and oral health. It is imperative to seek assistance with a dental issue. If dental implant surgery is needed, Dr. Martin stands ready to assist.
