Northside Oral Surgery in Dunwoody GA
Congratulations on choosing dental implants to meet your teeth replacement needs. Dental implants are the single most successful treatment in dentistry. With proper treatment planning, placement, restoration, and care dental, implants can last a lifetime.
Dental implants are usually placed with the patient under general or local anesthesia. Once a dental implant is placed, four to six months need to pass to allow for the bone and the implant chemically and mechanically bond in a process called osseointegration. The implant is then uncovered and a healing abutment is placed on top of the implant. This is done under local anesthesia.
At this point, the patient usually returns to their restorative dentist who will take impressions and restore the implant.
Dental implants are an excellent treatment for most the patients. I encourage you to read as much as possible about them and ask all questions you feel necessary.
