We customize the implant process for each patient. We take the time to understand your unique needs and expectations. Below is an overview of our step-by-step implant process:
During the consultation, we’ll:
- Evaluate the health of your jawbone and surrounding teeth
- Discuss options for tooth replacement
- Explain the implant timeline and process
- Address any questions or concerns you have
Implant Placement Surgery
To place the implant, we will:
- Administer local anesthesia to numb the area
- Make a small incision in your gums to expose the bone
- Create a hole in the bone to fit the titanium implant
- Place the implant and secure it in the bone
- Close the incision with stitches
The surgery is an outpatient procedure that takes 1-2 hours.
We allow 3-6 months for the implant to fuse securely to the bone before placing the crown. During this period, we may provide a temporary prosthetic tooth.
Once healed, we’ll replace the temporary tooth with a custom-made ceramic crown matched to your natural teeth. This non-invasive process takes about an hour.
Although fake tooth implants are durable, we recommend regular dental visits for a professional cleaning and to ensure your implant remains in excellent condition.
We are with you every step of the way, ensuring you heal properly and are 100% satisfied with your beautiful new implant tooth in the Lansdowne, Leesburg, and Ashburn areas.
