Title: A Beginners Guide to Dental Implants Treatment - Westend Dental

A Beginners Guide to Dental Implants Treatment
  • By Westend Dental

  • Dentures and bridges were long thought of the
    most effective treatments for missing or failing
    teeth. Today, though, you have another option.
    Dental implants have rapidly become the gold
    standard and for good reason.
  • One dental implant can support one crown, while
    implant supported dentures and fixed implant
    bridges need just a few dental implants to
    support a full arch of high-quality, strong, and
    stable replacement teeth. The method of
    inserting dental implants is the same despite
    specifically that procedure you decide on.

Examination and Treatment Planning
  • The first step is a thorough examination. We will
    ensure that dental implants are the best solution
    for you, and will determine exactly what steps
    need to occur before you are ready to receive
  • We will take X-rays and scans to learn the
    current condition of your mouth, and then work
    with you to develop a treatment plan. Please feel
    free to ask questions and express any concerns
    you have.

Tooth Repair and Extraction
  • Once your existing dental problems are treated,
    any teeth that need removal are extracted. This
    relatively minor procedure can be performed under
    local anesthesia or while you are safely sedated
    in our office.
  • Although it is normal to feel a bit sore for the
    next few days, many patients report that they
    feel much better overall once the bad teeth are
    gone. Temporary teeth will be made, so that you
    are not without teeth while you heal.

Bone Grafting (if Needed)
  • Most people do not need bone grafting, but if you
    do, it is not something that we can skip. Bone
    grafting is a simple procedure that builds up the
    jawbone to create a strong base for your dental
    implants. Depending on how much bone grafting you
    need, it could take weeks or months to heal.

Implant Placement
  • Placing dental implants is a minor oral surgery.
    After thoroughly numbing your mouth, we will cut
    a small flap in your gums, and then use a series
    of drills to open a tiny, precise hole in your
  • We will screw the biocompatible titanium dental
    implant into the opening, cover it with a healing
    cap or cover screw, and close your gums. If you
    need multiple dental implants, we can place them
    all at once. You will continue to wear your
    temporary partial or full denture for several
    weeks while the implant fuses with your jawbone.

Abutment and Crown
  • Once your implant has fused with your jawbone,
    you will return for an abutment and crown. During
    this minor procedure, we will reopen the gum
    tissue and replace the cover screw or healing cap
    with an abutment. We then carefully place the
    final crown on top.
  • If you are having multiple tooth replacements,
    you will have had two or more implants placed at
    the same time. During this step, you will receive
    abutments for all of your implants, as well as
    your custom denture or bridge.

  • All-on-Four is a unique option that allows us to
    secure a full arch of fixed teeth on just four
    dental implants. The implants are considered
    immediate-load, which means that you will receive
    fixed teeth on the same day as your implant
  • In a few months, you will have a final fixed
    bridge fabricated. This restoration is much
    stronger and looks even more natural than the
    immediate bridge placed after your surgery.
