At our Albuquerque dental office, we want you to have confidence in your smile and will do everything possible to help you reach your short and long term oral health goals. Knowing you are missing one or more teeth, even if it is not one of the more visible ones, can impact your self-esteem. Dental implants can restore your confidence in your smile.
Understanding the Partial Dental Implant Procedure
Over the span of three to four months, we will perform the necessary steps, including dental surgery, to place the implant and give it time to integrate with your bone. When you see our implant dentists, we will:
- Remove the decayed tooth. Once we have determined the tooth cannot be saved, we will remove it and generally place a bone graft in to promote healing.
- Create your metal implant. After you have healed, we place the titanium base directly into your gums during dental implant surgery.
- Create your Replacement Tooth. We have an in-house lab that can create the replacement tooth for a quick turnaround.
- Place and fit your tooth implant. Our in-house lab allows us to find the right fit for your tooth implants without a long wait.
By creating an implant for your missing tooth, you’re on your way to meeting your oral health goals. Let us help you reach them!
Contact our Partial Implant Dentists Today
The sooner you come in to see our implant dentists, the better. Waiting to get an implant placed can cause your teeth to shift or bone structure to change, making it much more difficult to heal after surgery. Contact us today to regain a smile you have confidence in!
