No! For your convenience, we handle the entire implant process from start to finish right here at our Metairie dental office!
Many people are not aware that dental implants consist of three pieces: the implant, the abutment, and the restoration. Once the process is complete, all three parts come together to form a permanent tooth replacement with exceptional strength and durability.
The Dental Implant Process
We start by surgically placing a small titanium implant in your jawbone. This becomes a replacement root for your missing tooth and the foundation for the abutment and dental crown. As it heals, the implant actually integrates with the surrounding bone, creating stability that is not available with other tooth replacement options.
Next, the abutment is attached to the implant, and the dental crown is secured to the abutment to complete the dental implant process.
Our experienced team has advanced training and skill in placing dental implants. If you’re looking for a dentist you can trust to handle the entire procedure safely, please contact our Metairie dental office for more information.
