What to Expect When Getting Dental Implants
When it comes to getting dental implants installed there are quite a few things that you should be aware of if you are considering going through with this procedure. In order to learn more about what you can expect when it comes to the dental implants installation process please review what’s discussed below:
- Dental implants are not for everyone and also consultation is required beforehand. However, individuals who are good candidates generally need to have oral health that is in good standing.
- Any damaged teeth that are being replaced must be completely removed first. This is often done by extraction. However, one does not need to have damaged teeth to get dental implants.
- The jawbone is carefully inspected for signs of bone loss before bone grafting takes place. Also, bone grafting is done to help prepare the jaw area so that dental implant installation is possible.
- Once the jaw has healed from the grafting surgery, the dentist will surgically install special metal components into your jaw bone. These structures are needed for dental implant placement.
