Before we begin the procedure, your gums and jawbone need to be healthy and strong. If we identify any cavities or signs of gum disease, we will need to treat it prior to the dental implant procedure.
Once you are cleared for the procedure, our staff at Dr. Daisy P. Alvarenga, DDS will take an impression of your mouth to create your implant. Your synthetic tooth will match the size, color, and shape of the surrounding teeth to make your smile appear completely natural.
The next step is implanting a metal post under the gum line. The metal post is secured to the jawbone in order to create a durable, synthetic root system. Over the course of a couple of months, the metal post and jawbone will fuse together to create durability.
Afterward, we will secure the new synthetic tooth to the metal post at the surface of the gums. The new tooth is attached so securely that patients don’t need to fear their tooth becoming loose or falling out.
The team at Dr. Daisy P. Alvarenga, DDS provide dental implants in a way that is comfortable and functional. We take the time to make sure that every aspect of the procedure is completed correctly – the first time.
