During your initial consultation with Dr. Weaver, he will evaluate your oral health condition and medical history, take X-rays and digital impressions of your mouth, answer any questions you may have, and create a treatment plan that’s right for you.
At your next appointment, we will place the implant. First we cleanse and anesthetize the surgical site. Once you can’t feel anything, Dr. Weaver will begin. Using a surgical guide template to accurately control the placement of the implant, he will insert it into your bone. This is painless and generally only takes a few minutes. For the next 3-6 months, your bone will adapt and engage the implant. During this process you will return for one or two quick follow-up visits.
Once your implant has completely integrated with your bone, we will begin the restoration process. We take a digital impression of your implant, and our lab will fabricate a ceramic crown that attaches to your implant. Your crown is customized to match your teeth’s shape and color to blend seamlessly with your smile. You leave the office with a new tooth that looks, functions, and feels as natural as the original.
