Pre-Surgery

When you go to the dentist for the dental implant, first of all, they take x-ray of the teeth and then find the gaps in between the teeth. After analyzing the gaps in between the dentist starts preparation for your treatment.

During Surgery

As for implants, it is for all people- those who have missing teeth and for those who have infected teeth. If you have infected teeth then it is important to remove them or the infection (if possible) through cleaning. After removing the infected teeth, dentist may feel that they need to graft a bone for your gums (f gums do not have adequate space for the implant teeth). You may be bit anxious but you are in good hands of experts like Town Square Dental (TX). After this, the dentist leaves that part to heal until the next visit.

For implants, dentists first give local anesthesia and then cut your gums to check the bone. Now, if the bone is appropriate then the dentist drills into the mouth for metal implant. After that, the dentist tells you to give it some time(months) to heal but they provide you with temporary denture for your appearance.

Once it is fused with teeth then the dentist puts prosthetic tooth for implant. The next few weeks would be given for the infusion. For that time, temporary crown is fitted and after that permanent crown is given to you.

Post-Surgery

After the surgery you may feel pain for some time and hence, it is advisable to eat soft and cold food. It would be better if you get a diet plan from the dentist for the next few weeks.
