Three Steps to Restore Your Smile
Restoring your smile with dental implants is a three-step process that requires a few months to complete. Dr. Martin will be with you through every phase of your treatment, ensuring your comfort and safety.
Explore our guide to learn about each step of the dental process.
The first step to your new smile is scheduling a consultation with Dr. Martin. During this visit, he’ll thoroughly examine your teeth, gums and jawbone to determine if implants are the best option for you. He’ll also take the time to listen to your smile goals and answer any questions you have about the procedure.
If you suffer from bone loss in your jaw or gum disease, Dr. Martin offers supplemental procedures to prepare you for implants. The most common of these are bone grafting and gum therapy.
Once he determines you’re ready, Dr. Martin will place the titanium implant fixture in your jaw. We perform computer-guided surgery at our practice to ensure maximum precision.
Your jaw will need three to six months to heal after surgery. This allows osseointegration to occur, the process of your implant fusing with your jawbone to replace the missing tooth root. Thanks to this secure bond, your implant will look and function just like a natural tooth.
After the healing process is complete, you’ll return to our office so Dr. Martin can finish your restoration. Depending on how many teeth you’re replacing, this could be a single crown, a multi-tooth bridge, or a set of full-arch dentures.
No matter which solution you choose, we’ll customize it to blend in seamlessly with your surrounding teeth. At this point, you can enjoy all the benefits of a healthy and beautiful smile.
