Dental Implant Placement
Patients can elect be sedated or not sedated during the procedure. Dr. Nugent will get the area completely numb so you feel no discomfort. The sedation is just an option for you if you have any anxiety about dentistry. Dr. Nugent will place the dental implant into the bone. There the implant is left to heal for several months. The bone will grow up to and fuse to the dental implant locking it into place.
For teeth in the back, most patients elect to not have a temporary tooth made. However, if it is a front tooth Dr. Nugent will make a temporary replacement tooth for you to wear.
Once the implant is fused to the bone, it is time to make the permanent tooth. Dr. Nugent will take highly accurate impressions that he will send to the lab. There the lab created the abutment and crown that will replicate a natural tooth. The abutment is the foundation that is screwed into the dental implant. Then the crown goes over the abutment to create a new tooth that functions, feels and looks like a natural tooth.
