Our Dental Implant Process
Three Steps to Restore Your Smile
If you want to restore your smile with dental implants, Dr. Munro can complete your procedure in just three steps. Explore our guide to the dental implant process so you can know exactly what to expect during treatment.
The first step to your new smile is scheduling a consultation with Dr. Munro. During this visit, he’ll examine your teeth, gums, and jawbone to determine if dental implants are the best treatment for you. He’ll also answer any questions you have about the procedure.
If you suffer from gum recession or jawbone deterioration, Dr. Munro can help you qualify for implants with a supplemental procedure. Most commonly, these include bone grafting or gum disease treatment.
Once he determines you’re ready, Dr. Munro will place the titanium implant fixture directly in your jaw. We’re happy to offer sedation for patients who need help to relax and feel comfortable.
After your implant is placed, your jaw will need three to six months to heal. This allows time for osseointegration, the process of your implant fusing with your jawbone to replace the natural tooth root.
When your jaw has fully healed, Dr. Munro will attach your permanent crown, bridge, or denture. No matter which restoration you choose, it will be customized to blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth for a stunning smile.
Once your implant treatment is complete, you can finally eat, speak, and smile with total confidence. Best of all, your implant can last a lifetime with proper care.
