Considering Dental Implants? Here’s What To Expect
- The first step to having dental implants is to schedule a consultation with our highly qualified dental implant specialists. We will discuss your concerns and expectations, and determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. We’ll then discuss what type of implant treatment will work best for your smile.
- Once you’ve decided to move forward with your treatment, we will schedule dental implants surgery to place the implants into your mouth. After dental implant surgery, we then allow a period of healing to take place. This allows new bone to form around the implant root, further anchoring it into the jaw.
- In 3 to 6 months, we will then place an abutment over the root, which supports your permanent restoration.
- In most cases, the entire process takes no longer than six months from start to finish.
Yes, It’s A Virtually Painless Procedure
Utilizing the most advanced techniques and equipment, our implant dentistry specialists make it possible for you to enjoy a beautiful smile again WITHOUT the discomfort.
“Dr. Cipriano, and his superlative assistant, Pam, installed two implants in my upper right jaw. At the end of a virtually painless (I felt the small stings of the lidocaine needle) procedure, they started me on antibiotics and gave me two tablets of Aleve anti-inflammatory, Two tablets, period. Of course, there was a prescription for percoset, but the two Aleve’s was all the pain treatment I needed, and I’m not certain I needed even that. Not only no pain, but no discomfort after the anesthetic wore off. I cannot imagine better than the treatment I just received.
A decades-long, and grateful, client.” ~~ Paul B, Boston
