Your experience at Brook Hollow Family Dentistry
Dr. Chauhan will do a thorough examination to determine dental compatibility. Gum and jawbone health are important. It must also be determined if there is enough bone to place the implant. Bone can be reduced by years of living with missing teeth.
Anesthesia will be used so that you don’t feel anything but pressure during the procedure. The first part of the implant is placed into the bone. The area must heal for up to several months. Impressions of the teeth/implant area will be taken and sent to a lab for fabrication of the final crown. Patients will have a temporary crown in place while the lab is creating the permanent one. Finally, your specially made crown is attached to the implant and checked by Dr. Chauhan to ensure proper and comfortable fit.
