Dental Implant Procedure
The placement of dental implants involves one or two surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within your jaw bone. For the first three to six months following the surgery, the implants are beneath the surface of the gums or slightly peaking through it depending on the surgeon’s choice. During that time the implant is gradually integrating with the jaw bone. You should be able to wear temporary dentures and eat a soft diet during this time..
After the implant has integrated to the jaw bone, the second phase begins. The implant will be uncovered and Dr. Zogby can then start making your new teeth. An impression must be taken. Then posts or attachments can be connected to the implants. The replacement teeth are then made over the posts or attachments. The entire procedure usually takes four to eight months. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life.
