Dental Implant Placement

The first step of your implant treatment is the implant placement. When you receive an implant placement, Dr. Greg Simon and Dr. David Riggs will insert an implant post into your jawbone to replace the missing tooth root and provide a stable foundation for your teeth and jaw.

Dental implant placement is a crucial first step in the journey towards restoring your smile and oral health. This procedure serves as the foundation for your implant-supported restoration and your future smile, whether you are replacing a single tooth or multiple teeth. Understanding what to expect during this phase can help alleviate any concerns and ensure a successful outcome.

The implant placement procedure begins with the skilled and precise surgical insertion of a small screw, made of titanium or another biocompatible material, into your jawbone. This implant post essentially takes on the role of a natural tooth root, providing stability and stimulating the surrounding jawbone.

Following the implant placement, a crucial healing period follows. During this time, the implant undergoes a process called “osseointegration,” where it fuses with your jawbone. This integration is vital for the implant’s long-term stability and durability. Patients receive detailed post-operative instructions to ensure proper healing and reduce the risk of complications.

In cases where you have experienced bone loss in the jaw, a bone grafting procedure may be necessary to create a suitable foundation for the implant. Additionally, any pre-existing oral health issues, such as tooth decay or gum disease, must be addressed before implant placement to ensure the best possible outcome.
