Procedure for Dental Implants at Blue Bird Dentistry

Dental crown and implant screw replacing missing tooth in Fredericksburg VAYour dentist evaluates your mouth to make sure dental implants will work for you. This includes x-rays and a comprehensive look at your bone structure and sinus placement. Sometimes, if you don’t have enough jawbone—or if your sinus is too close to your upper arch—your dentist may recommend bone grafting or a sinus lift to help make the dental implant a reality for you.

If a dental implant is right for you, we schedule your implant placement. This means your dentist surgically implants a tooth replacement root into your jawbone. After a few months, this post integrates and becomes part of your anatomy.

At this point, your dentist tops your implant post with a replacement tooth, commonly known as a dental crown.

For patients who have full or nearly full tooth loss, we can also implant four to six replacement roots and secure a denture or dental bridge to your jaw. This eliminates slipping and the need for adhesives or relines.
