A dental implant takes approximately an hour per implant. But the entire process tends to be spread out over a period of 6 months or sometimes more. At The Glenroy Dental Group, you will have the most caring Glenroy dentists who will carry out the procedure, ensuring that you are comfortable all the time.
What is a dental implant?
If you are missing a tooth, then it can be replaced with the help of a dental implant. Your replacement tooth, known as the implant, is usually made of metal. It can be titanium or zirconia.
This metal part serves the purpose of your tooth’s root. A crown is added later to the implant in order to complete the process.
Our caring dental team in Glenroy makes sure that you are carefully guided and prepared for the process. They keep your comfort in mind helping you go through the implant and healing process smoothly.
The dental implant procedure
All our dental procedures begin with a consultation. Our caring dentist in Glenroy will conduct a physical check and a CT scan to analyze your jaw structure. This helps us understand the extent of damage and identify a customized treatment plan which can meet your requirements.
You can ask questions and clear all doubts about the process, including information about the cost and length of time for completing the dental implant for you.
If you decide to proceed with the implant, then a our caring dentist carries out further examinations and will collect necessary information for the process to be completed.
A date will be fixed for the process according to your convenience. Our gentle team of Glenroy dentists will then carry out the procedure on the appointed day. This will take approximately an hour for each implant. When the process is completed, you will go home with your implants, which look like real teeth.
For now, you will have temporary crowns which will be in place till the time your mouth heals from the procedure.
You will receive detailed information on post-procedure care to make sure that you heal quickly. In the early stages, you may have to limit your diet to foods which you can easily chew. This reduces stress on the implants and accelerates the healing process. We will conduct checkups in regular intervals to track the healing process.
At the same time, we will work on creating a permanent prosthesis which will be placed on the implant after you have completely healed. After this, you will be able to return to your regular food habits.
