Dental Implant Restoration
To restore a smile, whether for functional or cosmetic reasons, Dr. Caledonia can replace missing teeth with dental implants. First, he will refer a patient to a surgical specialist to have an implant placed. Dr. Caledonia then completes the procedure by inserting an abutment and a crown into the implant.
The process usually takes anywhere from 3 to 9 months to complete, however the implant itself can be placed in one day. A healing time of 3 to 4 months is needed to ensure the body will accept the implant. Once the healed gums have been examined, the abutment and crown can be delivered in about 3 weeks.
Requirements For Dental Implant Candidates:
A patient needs to have a healthy body, gums and bone structure to ensure that the body will accept the implant. Things that can cause an implant to fail include a history of diabetes and smoking or drinking heavily. Dr. Caledonia will discuss this with the patient and customize the treatment plan accordingly.
