If you’re considering investing in Austin dental implants, then you’ve come to the right place. Our implant overview is designed to answer some common questions about implants and help you better determine whether or not implants are the right option for you.
Dental implants are posts that Dr. Carmona implants into your jawbone by way of a minor surgical procedure. Once your implant, meant to take the place of the root of your tooth, is in place, Dr. Carmona will affix a crown to the abutment, replacing the actual crown of your tooth.
Implants are a great option for anyone because they area very secure, permanent tooth-replacement option. You won’t have to worry about dentures being uncomfortable, and dental implants even prevent bone loss in your jaw, which supports the overall appearance of your face!
Two office visits are generally necessary to complete the implant process. During your first visit, Dr. Carmona will surgically implant the posts into your jawbone. Your jaw will then undergo a process called osteointegration whereby the post and your jawbone fuse together. Once your jaw is healed, you will come back to the office, and Dr. Carmona will place the final permanent crown.
In some instances, Dr. Carmona will be able to place the final crown at the same time he implants the post. To determine whether or not this is possible for you, ask Dr. Carmona during your consultation.
