How Are Dental Implants Placed?
The first step in placing an implant is your consultation, during which time it will be determined if dental implants are right for you. A cone-beam scan as well as study models will be taken to determine if you have the quality and quantity of bone in which to place implants. The second step will be the oral surgery to place the dental implants. In the 35 years that Dr. Perler has been placing and restoring dental implants, he has determined that buried implants have the best long-term prognosis. Some dentists like to place implants and load them in the same visit. Dr. Perler prefers to bury them anywhere from 3 to 6 months for the best healing and stabilization. The third step will be your recovery period, during which time the dental implants will become integrated with your jawbone and gum tissue. The final step takes place when you are completely healed and involves the placing of your permanent dental restoration.
