Dental Implant Placement
A first step before dental implant placement is to ensure that a patient has a sufficient jawbone to support dental implants. Bone grafting becomes necessary, if the jaw’s volume is insufficient. Once a thorough examination has verified that a person is eligible, the initial phase of the dental implant can begin, which is the placement phase.
During a surgical placement procedure, small metal implants are placed in the patient’s jawbone. The implants are placed where the roots of the old tooth used to be. There is a lot of versatility with dental implants. For example, they can be single implants or more similar to a full or partial denture.
When our patients at Gumucio Dental are in need of a dental implant, no referrals to an oral surgeon are necessary. Our qualified team of dental professionals offers comprehensive implant care. Your entire dental implant treatment can be provided by the dental team you’ve already come to trust.
