Dental implants are becoming more common than ever before and are considered the gold standard of missing teeth replacement. Trusting an oral surgeon to perform your dental implant surgery will lead to the best results. At Lane Oral Surgery, we have the years of experience and advanced dental technologies to give you a safe, accurate and successful treatment. We want to be absolutely transparent with our patients on what to expect with dental implants in Plymouth, MA, and have outlined the steps you will go through.
Whether you are missing one or multiple teeth, or have failing teeth, we will always speak with you in a private consultation. During this consultation we will perform a preliminary exam of your mouth, discuss your smile goals and go over your needs. We will answer any of your questions or concerns on what to expect with dental implants and give you an estimate on the overall cost of your implant procedure. We will help you determine the best treatment plan for you.
During the dental implant planning phase, we will take 3D images of your mouth and oral structure to have a better understanding of what needs to be done. If you do not have sufficient jaw bone volume to support implants, then a bone graft will be performed at this time and allowed to heal before we move on to the implant surgery.
Ensuring your comfort and safety during implant surgery is of utmost importance at Lane Oral Surgery. Many patients wonder about the level of discomfort they will experience. Dr. William Lane is trained to offer soothing sedation dentistry, including being certified in IV sedation, so you experience minimal discomfort through your entire procedure. We will place your dental implants with precision in areas that have the most bone for a secure hold.
The SmileOn! dental implant solution is a unique procedure developed by Dr. Lane to give patients a full arch of new teeth the same day as their implant surgery. On the day of your implant surgery, we can extract teeth, place six to eight dental implants into your jaw and fit you with a lifelike and durable temporary prosthesis of teeth. Unlike traditional full arch dental implant procedures, you will never be without any teeth. You will keep these temporary teeth until your permanent fixed bridge is ready to be placed and your jaw has healed.
The final phase for dental implants in Plymouth, MA, is the restoration of your teeth. In most cases, your dental crowns will be created and placed onto your implants by your general dentist. For those choosing the SmileOn! solution, we will work closely with your dentist to ensure that your new teeth fit perfectly onto your implants and you are completely satisfied.
Many patients wonder what to expect with dental implant healing, but the truth is, that healing is fairly simple. For the first 24 hours after having surgery, be sure to eat soft foods and avoid foods and drinks with extreme temperatures. Additionally, do not drink from a straw for at least 24 hours. Patients may be sore after dental implant surgery and you can be prescribed prescription pain medication to control the levels of discomfort. You can resume gently brushing your teeth 24 hours after surgery, but should avoid smoking of any kind. Most patients typically feel back to their natural state around three days after surgery. You should schedule a follow up appointment just a few weeks after surgery so our doctor can evaluate your health and healing.
