Diagnosis - During the initial examination, Dr. Tehranian checks the location of the blood vessels, nerves and other anatomical features , as well as the length, width and location of the future implant in the jaw.
With the use of specialised 3D cone beam scanner , digital radiography and virtual treatment planning software. Dr. Tehranian will analyse the options and consult with the you on the most suitable type of titanium implant.
Tooth Implant placement - dental implant is inserted into the jawbone in extreme conditions of sterilization and under a local anaesthetic. you will be given medication such as antibiotics prior to the surgery. Then, a local anaesthetic will be administered to numb the area where the implant(s) will be placed. After you are comfortable, a small incision is made into the gum tissue, revealing the bone into which the implant will be placed. Using special instruments, a socket is created carefully, avoiding damage to the bone. The titanium implant is then inserted into the socket.
Rehabilitation - At this stage, a ceramic crown is built over the implant. It takes several weeks until desired results are obtained. After six months of healing, your jawbone is firmly fused to the implants. The restorative phase of your treatment, when your missing teeth are actually replaced, is now ready to begin.
Depending on a variety of factors, it may be possible to begin the restorative phase of your treatment earlier in certain cases immediately after implant placement. We will review the most appropriate treatment sequence and timing for your particular situation.
