Are you about to replace your missing tooth with a dental implant in Ottawa, Ontario? If so, our Skyline Dental Associates team wants to help you prepare for your treatment! The more prepared you are, the more comfortable you will feel in the dental chair. So, when you come into our office and meet with your dentist, Dr. Leila Ebrahimpoor, you can expect the following steps:
Step 1: First, we will examine your smile and create an individualized treatment plan. In order to do so, we will thoroughly examine your mouth by taking a series of X-rays. Once we receive all of the information we need, we will take the necessary steps.
Step 2: You will then visit an oral surgeon to begin the implantation process. The surgeon will place a tooth root implant, which is made of titanium, into the bone socket of your missing tooth. Your bone will then need to heal around the post, which could take six to twelve weeks.
Step 3: Once your bone has healed around the post, you will come into Skyline Dental Associates and your dentist will attach a small connector post to the titanium post to securely hold the new tooth. Then, she will create a dental crown that will fit perfectly in your smile. When the crown is ready, it will be placed over the post.
Once you finish the dental implant treatment, you will finally have the complete, beautiful, and functional smile you deserve. For more information and details, please call our office at (613) 226-4562 and talk to a member of our friendly dental team. We are happy to help you!
