After you have consulted with your dentist and you both have decided that a dental implant in Denver, CO is the right solution for your dental needs, we schedule your implant placement.
However, at your initial consultation, you'll discuss a treatment plan with your dentist and receive an exam, including x-rays, to ensure that your jaw and gums are in good health and strong enough for the dental implant procedure.
Denver dental implant specialists Drs. Clifford Litvak & James Woller can help you figure out the best treatment for your needs.
Dental Implant Procedure
The dental implant process involves implanting a small, titanium post in the jaw that will eventually fuse with the bone, creating a solid foundation to support a tooth crown or prosthetic.
It takes several months for the posts to fully heal and integrate into the bone, and you will need to use caution when eating. However, the healing and integration are not painful. You'll likely only feel mild discomfort for a few days following implant placement.
