Dental Implant Procedure

Dental clinic

When a person is getting long or short dental implants the procedure will be done by a qualified dentist. The dentist will look at the mouth and take x-rays to determine the best course for the implants. They will review the medical history and develop a plan for dental implants. They are going to need to determine placement, construct the implant, and determine if grafting may be needed. This process can take several months to complete.

When a person is having dental implants an oral surgeon will cut open the gums to expose the bones. They will drill holes into the bone and place a metal post for the implants. The implant is then put into place and it may take several months for the dental implant to fully take. After the procedure, there may be some swelling and it will take time to heal. A person will need to practice good oral care and in no time they will be as good as new.
