What is the process for a dental implant, and how long does it take?
At New Lambton Family Dental, we understand that you want to enhance your smile, and find the best solution for tooth loss in New Lambton, NSW. Our dentists believe that dental implants are very similar to natural teeth.
A dental implant begins with an assessment by one of our New Lambton, NSW dentists. If it is determined that you are a good candidate for dental implants, the next step is x-rays to decide the best placement for your dental implant post.
Following this, Dr Maria Paez or Dr Jonathan Michael surgically implant your post—it is a small titanium screw that bonds with your jawbone to create a solid tooth root for your crown, implant-supported denture, or supported bridge. It generally takes several months for the implant post to thoroughly bond with your jawbone.
When healing and bonding are complete, you are ready for your restoration.
At New Lambton Family Dental, we colour and shape your restoration to match your smile.
The entire process may take several months, depending on healing time between implant post and restoration placement.
