What to expect at your dental implant consultation
Dr. Homsi will conduct a thorough oral exam, which includes digital scans to evaluate your jaw bone density and overall oral health. Your doctor will review their findings with you and determine if you are a good candidate for implants. If dental implants are right for you, he will provide a tailored treatment plan for your placement and restoration procedures.
Oral Surgery & Implant Placement
Your oral surgery will be scheduled after your consultation. During the procedure, your doctor will make an incision in your gum line and insert the titanium implant. Guides are often used to ensure proper placement of the implant.
Healing & Osseointegration
After the implant has been placed, the healing and osseointegration process begins. This is where your jawbone and the titanium implant bond together. Healing from the surgery takes about two weeks, while osseointegration may take up to 6 months.
Crowns & Impressions
During osseointegration, Dr. Homsi will take impressions of your teeth so he can begin creating your custom prosthetic. He will work with you to color-match your crown or arch of teeth so that it fits seamlessly with your smile.
Restoration Application Procedure
Once healing and osseointegration is complete, your abutment is placed atop the implant which attaches the dental implant to your new crown. After your restoration procedure, you will walk out of our office with a complete smile.
Dental Implant Maintenace
Over time, your dental implant restoration may require maintenance or may need to be replaced due to natural wear and tear. Dr. Homsi will instruct you on how best to care for your implants and restorations, and will be there if a new restoration is necessary.Schedule Your Dental Implant consultation
