The process of dental implant oral surgery and the cost of this type of surgery are both highly important if you have anything about your smile that makes you feel insecure or a lack of confidence. Dental Implants provide you with the opportunity to fix the gaps in your smile and repair any broken teeth.

Requirements for Dental Implant Oral Surgery Not everyone is eligible for dental implant oral surgery but there are a few requirements to determine if you do qualify. The requirements include having one or more teeth missing, having a jawbone that is at full growth, have enough bone to secure the implants, healthy tissues, not have any preexisting medical conditions that will delay the healing process, and not wanting to wear dentures.

How is the Procedure is Performed The dental implant oral surgery procedure is a fairly simple process. Usually it is performed in one day and the patient can go home after surgery. Given this the surgery is very convenient and allows the patient to participate in their normal daily activities. Also, they can get back to work in a timely manner.

What to Expect In terms of what to expect it should be noted that there are a few things a patient should be prepared for when they are going into this type of surgery. For example, if there isn’t a sufficient amount of bone then bone grafting may be required. This process includes a piece of bone being removed from another part of the body and then transplanted to the jawbone if the jawbone is not thick enough or too soft.

After Surgery After the dental implant has been placed the next step will be to wait for some bone growth. Once the metal dental implant cylinder is inserted into the jawbone the osseointegration process starts. This process includes the jawbone growing into the surface of the dental implant and then uniting with it.
