It is estimated that at least 120 million people in the US are missing at least one tooth.
A missing tooth can have a tremendous impact on the quality of your life. At Norco Family Dental, we can help you replace a missing tooth with whatever option is best for you. Very often, that’s with a dental implant!
A dental implant is a screw placed in the area of the missing tooth that will integrate into your jaw and act as a tooth root. To complete the procedure, a crown is placed on top of the implant restoring both the form and function of your missing tooth. If that sounds simple, it’s because it really is!
While each situation can be unique, time frames generally proceed as follows:
- A tooth is extracted and a bone graft is placed to maintain adequate bone level for future implant placement. In many cases, an implant can be placed immediately after the extraction.
- Four to six months later the implant is placed (if not placed immediately)
- Four to six months after the implant is placed, the crown will be placed.
