Lets Talk about a Dental Implant

Dental implants have become a popular and effective solution for replacing missing teeth. If you’re considering this restorative dental procedure, it’s essential to understand what to expect throughout the process. At Renew Dental Lounge, we want you to understand what’s involved and walk you through the various stages of getting a dental implant, from consultation to recovery.

Initial Consultation:

Your journey begins with a thorough examination and consultation with us. Expect discussions about your oral health history, lifestyle, and any concerns you may have.

Treatment Planning:

Based on the assessment, your dental professional will create a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs or in more complex cases we will refer you to our network of specialists for your care. X-rays and 3-D digital scans of your mouth will be taken to aid in the planning process.

Surgical Procedure:

The implant placement is a surgical procedure that is typically performed under local anaesthesia. At Renew Dental Lounge we use a custom-designed surgical guide to place the implant. You might experience some discomfort, but the procedure is generally well-tolerated.

Osseointegration:

The implant fuses with the jawbone during a healing period known as osseointegration. This phase is crucial for the stability and success of the dental implant and usually takes between 3 & 6 months to occur.

Abutment Placement:

Once osseointegration is complete, an abutment is attached to the implant. The abutment serves as a connector between the implant and the dental crown.

3D Digital Scans for the Final Crown:

3D scans of your teeth are taken to create a custom dental crown that will be securely attached to the abutment.

Crown Placement:

The final step involves placing the custom-designed crown onto the abutment. We will ensure proper alignment and a natural appearance.

Post-Procedure Care:

Following the procedure, you’ll receive instructions on caring for your new dental implant. Good oral hygiene practices and regular dental check-ups are crucial for long-term success.

Recovery and Adjustments:

Expect a short recovery period with some mild discomfort, which can be managed with prescribed medications. We may schedule follow-up appointments to monitor the healing process and make any necessary adjustments.

Long-Term Maintenance:

Dental implants require ongoing oral care to maintain their longevity. Regular dental check-ups, proper oral hygiene, and a healthy lifestyle contribute to the success of your dental implant.

Embarking on the journey of getting a dental implant can lead to a restored and confident smile. Knowing what to expect at each stage of the process can help alleviate any concerns and ensure a successful outcome.
