Tooth implants are a common dental procedure in which an implant is placed on top of the tooth for various reasons. If you are getting a tooth implant in the near future, you should know what to expect. In this article, we are going to review the process of tooth implants.
The first part of the process is the consultation. During this time you will meet with the dentist to ask any questions you have. The dentist will also want to know about your dental and medical history. Before the procedure can begin, the dentist will need to take X-rays of your mouth so they have a better understanding of what they need to do.
When the procedure takes place, there are a couple of different ways it can go. Some people may require a tooth to be pulled. If this is the case, this is the first thing that will happen.
The next thing that will happen will be the placement of the implant. The dentist will place the implant and you will need to wait a couple of weeks before the crown gets placed. If the crown is in place the procedure is complete. You may be required to visit the dentist again to check on how the implant is doing.
