The Dental Implant Procedure

The dental implant procedure at Mount Zion Periodontics is carefully planned and tailored to your unique needs. During your initial consultation, Dr. Hickey will thoroughly assess your oral health, discuss your goals, and create a personalized treatment plan.
The first step of the procedure involves the placement of the dental implant into the jawbone. Dr. Hickey performs this minor surgical procedure with precision, ensuring minimal discomfort and a seamless healing process.
Following the implant placement, a healing period of several months is typically necessary to allow osseointegration to take place. During this time, your jawbone fuses with the implant, creating a solid foundation for the prosthetic tooth.
Once the healing process is complete, a dental crown, bridge, or denture is attached to the implant, completing your beautiful smile restoration. The result is a natural-looking, fully functional set of teeth that you can confidently show off to the world.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a suitable candidate for dental implants?

Most individuals with good oral and overall health are suitable candidates for dental implants. However, a thorough evaluation by our experienced team is necessary to determine your eligibility. Factors such as bone density, gum health, and medical history will be considered during the assessment.

Are dental implants painful?

The dental implant procedure is performed under local anesthesia and sedation, ensuring that you feel little to no discomfort during the process. After the procedure, some mild soreness and swelling are normal, but these can be managed with prescribed pain medication and ice packs.

How long does the dental implant process take?

The dental implant process can vary from patient to patient, depending on individual healing times. On average, the entire process, from implant placement to crown attachment, can take several months. Our team will keep you informed about your progress at every step of the journey.

How long do dental implants last?

With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups, good oral hygiene practices, and a healthy lifestyle are essential to ensure the longevity of your dental implants.

What are the advantages of dental implants over traditional dentures?

Dental implants offer numerous advantages over traditional dentures. They are more stable, feel more natural, and do not require messy adhesives. Dental implants also help preserve bone health and prevent the deterioration of the jawbone, which can occur with dentures.
