What can Knoxville, TN patients expect before, during, and after the dental implants procedure?

A popular solution to tooth loss is dental implants. This restoration allows patients to restore the beauty and function of their smile after loss due to extraction, infection, or trauma. Dental implants are titanium posts which are surgically implanted into the jawbone. They are then covered with a porcelain dental crown to act as a false tooth and they allow patients to enjoy increased efficiency in chewing, biting, and speaking. They are the ultimate solution for many patients.

However, the idea of dental surgery for the dental implants placement can be a concerning notion for many patients. Patients who are already nervous about visiting the dentist may not consider the long-term benefits dental implants can provide and opt out of having the treatment done. Dental implants have a number of advantages over other restorative solutions, including longevity, durability, beauty, and value. Dr. Foncea of Knoxville, TN discusses with his patients what they can expect before, during, and after their dental implants procedure.

Patients will undergo a series of x-rays to determine if there is enough bone for the successful placement of the dental implant. If there is not sufficient bone, a grafting procedure may be necessary before implants can be placed. Once patients are deemed viable candidates for the procedure, the appointment for placement will be made.

Patients will attend their appointment, and proper anesthesia and sedation will be used to make the patient comfortable. Dr. Foncea will drill into the bone and place the implant, then stitch the area closed. Patients will be sent home with aftercare instructions and pain medication if necessary.

Patients must wait for the area to heal before a dental crown is placed. This healing time allows the bone to integrate with the implant and provide the stability it needs to function properly. This process, called osseointegration, can take weeks, even months, to occur and securely hold the implant in place. A dental crown is placed over the implant and patients can enjoy the benefits of high quality care through Sequoyah Dental Arts of Knoxville, TN.
