Guide to Dental Implant Surgery

Going through dental implant surgery can be a bottle of mixed emotions, especially if it’s your first time. Whether you’re excited about your surgery or not, remember that you’re doing something significant to improve your oral health.  If you’re looking for Vero Beach dental implants, you’ll want to know what you can expect before your operation.  

If you want to know what happens before, during, and after dental implant surgery, here’s a step-by-step illustration to help you get through your dental procedure.

Dental Implants Step-By-Step Procedure    

Assessment and Evaluation  

The first step in any dental surgery is the assessment and evaluation process. During this stage, your dentist will create a well-thought-out treatment plan for your surgery and post-dental care. Your dentist will also evaluate your oral and general health by taking multiple X-rays, examinations, and blood tests to ensure that you’re qualified for the dental procedure.   

Once the tests and screening are done, you’ll be booked for the operation if your dentist says you’re a good candidate for dental implants.   

During the Surgery 

During the surgery, your dentist will remove all the necessary damaged or decayed teeth spotted during your assessment before placing the dental implants. After completing the necessary steps to install the dental implants, you’ll be sent home to recover with a temporary crown.  

Recovery Process 

Once you’re sent home to recover, you’ll be placed under medication to manage the pain and ensure that your dental implants heal properly. This part of the dental implant procedure is vital since your artificial tooth will not be installed if your dental implants develop complications.  After you fully heal from the process, you will need to return for the permanent crowns.
