Dental implants are a great long-lasting way to replace missing teeth and offers many benefits:
When you come to Drs. Heringhaus we want you to be informed of your treatment options and procedures. During a dental implant treatment at Drs. Heringhaus, you can expect:
During this appointment, our dental team will assess the patient’s dental history, current oral health, and suitability for dental implants. We will take digital images and impressions of the teeth and jawbone to create a customized treatment plan.
The implant is placed into the jawbone during a surgical procedure. Local anesthesia options are available to minimize discomfort. Over time, the implant will fuse with the bone, creating a stable and strong foundation.
After the implant has fused with the bone, an abutment is placed on top of the implant. This serves as a connector between the implant and the crown. The crown, which is a natural-looking replacement tooth, is then attached to the abutment.
It is important to follow up after the procedure to ensure proper healing and function of the implants. Our dental team will monitor the patient’s oral health and address any concerns or issues that may arise.
