Red Sea Bulletin May/June 2014


The dental implant process can vary depending on a number of factors: 1) In the first few visits - general assessment and treatment planning. 2) In the next 2-3 visits - implant placement followed by a healing period of 6 weeks to 6 months. Stitches are removed around 7-10 days after the implant placement. 3) Several visits - healing process is checked. Temporary dentures will be fixed during this period. After healing is complete, they are uncovered and made ready to connect to replacement teeth. 4) 1 or 2 visits - temporary teeth might be fitted to allow for better control over loading. 5) Final teeth are fitted onto the implants after carefully measuring size, shape, and color of your other teeth - a few settings may be needed to adjust so they do not interfere with teeth. 6) Every few months - regular visits to asses implant healing and cleaning. 7) Bone grafting will increase the length of treatment time if you are short of jaw bone - this is an essential step to improve the success of your implants. In some cases the bone grafting and implant placement are done at the same time, which reduces the length of your treatment process, but most dentists prefer to do them in two steps.
