Oral Surgery for Dental Implants

Posted on 10/15/2023 by Dr Anthony Bouneff

They are surgically implanted in the jaw of your mouth and will work just as the root of the natural teeth. These implants provide adequate support for artificial teeth, giving you a more natural look. To place the dental implants, oral surgery is needed. Here is an overview of what this process entails:

Initial Consultation

The process starts with an initial consultation with an oral surgeon or dentist. They review the nature of your teeth and the feasibility of the placement of implants. Tests such as X-rays or CT scans can be requested to check the health of your jawbone.

Treatment Planning

If you have good bone density, the next step is to plan the treatment process. This plan helps outline the number of implants you need, the type of implant, and the most appropriate surgical approach.

Tooth Extraction

If you have either damaged or remaining teeth on your jaw where the implant is meant to be placed, an oral surgeon may recommend removing such teeth. This ensures there is enough space for adequate attachment of the implants.

Implant Placement

The oral surgery involves making adequate incisions on your gum tissues to help expose the underlying bone. A hole is drilled on your jawbone, and an implant is placed on the bone. An oral surgeon will then close the incision site and leave the implant to integrate with your jawbone.

Abutment Placement

Once the implant has properly fused with your jawbone, a small connector piece, also known as an abutment, is attached to your implant. The abutment is where an artificial tooth such as a crown or bridge will be attached. Later, an oral surgeon creates impressions of your mouth to create a customized synthetic tooth.
