Dental implant process
The first phase of getting a dental implant is making sure you are a great candidate. Our dentists in Richardson, will take some radiographs and evaluate the area or areas that need implants.
If you are a good candidate the dentist will place the implant along with bone graft.
The implant needs to heal for 3-6 months before too much pressure is placed on it. Once the implant has fully integrated into your bone we will place the custom abutment and crown. This combination of implant, abutment and crown make sure your teeth look as good as possible.
Once the implant and crown are placed you should show up to your regular cleaning visits so that we can maintain the health of your dental implant.
