Implant Placement and Restoration Q & A

What is the process for getting a dental implant?

Dental implants are permanently placed into your jawbone and capped with a custom crown that looks just like your natural teeth. In general, getting an implant takes three visits to Goodman Dental Center.

At your first appointment, the dentists perform a comprehensive exam to determine if a dental implant is a good option for you. Together, you and the team develop your treatment plan.

Goodman Dental Center uses i-CAT™ 3D imaging technology to determine where to place your dental implant. Imaging ensures that your implant is placed in the best location to promote oral health and long-lasting restoration.

The team uses guided surgery to insert the implant rod into your jawbone. After this step, your jaw will heal and fuse around the rod in the next 6-12 weeks. You’ll come back to the office once your mouth is healed, and the team fits your custom crown on top of the rod. 

What are the benefits of expert implant placement?

Dr. Brian Goodman is a fellow with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, and patients can be confident that they’re getting the best in dental implant technology at Goodman Dental Center.

Dental implants are a popular restoration, but it’s important to find a dental professional that you trust to perform the surgery. Guided surgery and i-CAT imaging combine the latest in technology with the dentists’ expertise to give you the best possible outcome. 

An implant placed in the right location means your restoration will be comfortable and long-lasting. Your dental implant promotes jaw health, stimulating bone growth to keep remaining natural teeth strong.

How long does a dental implant last?

The procedure is meant to be a permanent solution for missing teeth, and you can confidently use your implant as if it’s a natural tooth. You don’t have to hide your smile or give up any of your favorite foods when you have a dental implant.

With good oral hygiene, dental implants can last 25 years or longer. Be sure to visit the dentists regularly for cleanings, and maintain your oral health care routine at home by brushing and flossing twice a day.

A blow to the face or an accident that injures your mouth could necessitate restorative treatment. The dentists evaluate damaged implants with i-CAT technology as well, and the team can make recommendations for repairing and improving existing implants to help you maintain your oral health.
