Dental Implants What to Expect

The process for dental implants takes place over several months. Dr. Sinclair and Dr. Reichley spend significant time in the pre-treatment and planning phase to create a personalized treatment plan that will have predictable and successful results. In the end, we will provide dental implants that look like your natural smile and teeth.

Comprehensive Dental Implant Evaluation:

A thorough evaluation is the first step in the process for dental implants. This will include a physical exam of your teeth, gums, jaw joints, and other support structures of the mouth. It is key that you have the adequate bone structure to secure the implant in place.

Then, Dr. Sinclair or Dr. Reichley will create a custom treatment plan and coordinate treatment with an oral surgeon or periodontist. We will execute the entire process in one of our dental offices.

Dental Implant Placement:

Working from the treatment plan, an oral surgeon or periodontist will place the dental implant into the bone, which will serve as the root for the prosthetic tooth. Strategic planning is crucial to the long-term success and comfort of the final restoration.

Your dentist will give your mouth 3 to 6 months to heal over your dental implant. During this time, you may have a temporary crown or bridge placed to aid in the healing process, as well as for cosmetic purposes.

Dental Implant Restoration:

Dr. Sinclair or Dr. Reichley will complete the treatment after your mouth heals and your jawbone fuses with the titanium implant post. First, your dentist will uncover the implant post. Then he will permanently secure a dental crown to it.

In the case of multiple missing teeth, the dentist may use an over-bridge or a hybrid denture to restore function and beauty to your smile. It is the same process, but will require more than one implant post.

Dental Implant Aftercare:

Talk to your dental hygienist about how to take care of your dental implants. They will help you ensure your long-term health and function. You will maintain your dental implants the same way you maintain your real teeth. Schedule routine dental visits, brush at least twice a day for over two minutes each time, and floss.

Dental Implants FAQs

What is a Dental Implant and how does it work?

A dental implant is a bio-compatible titanium post designed to fuse to the jaw bone – replacing the root of the missing tooth. The dental implant will provide stability and support for the new replacement tooth. Our dental implant restorations look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

Are Dental Implants painful?

Patients are often amazed at how comfortable they were during and after their treatment. The actual dental implant procedure is no more painful than having a tooth pulled.

You are likely to experience some tenderness and swelling immediately following the procedure, but these symptoms should subside within 2 – 3 days of treatment.

How much do Dental Implants cost?

The cost of dental implants is a concern for many patients. When considering the dental implant procedure, it is important to look at the long-term benefits that dental implants provide.

Dental implants are less likely to need repairs and maintenance in the future. Compared to dentures, dental implants offer significantly better results in terms of quality of life, something that is hard to put a dollar figure on.

We offer flexible payment options, including interest free financing to help you pay for your procedure.

I have more than one missing tooth, can I still use implants?

Yes. A dental implant can be used to replace a one missing tooth or used to replace all of your missing teeth by supporting a denture or over-bridge.

If the dental implants are being used to support a denture or over-bridge, Dr. Sinclair may place as few as four dental implants to secure the restoration.
