Implant Dentistry is usually performed by a general dentist, periodontist, oral surgeon or a team of these dentists. To come up with the best overall plan for any particular person, one dentist should listen to what the patient wants. A complete medical history is reviewed. A comprehensive oral examination and x-rays as well as three dimensional radiography (CBCT scan – CT scan) then provides the best information prior to planning and treatment.
Implant Dentistry has both a surgical and prosthetic component. The surgical portion is often performed in the dental office with local anesthetic with or without sedation depending on the patient’s individual situation. During the surgical phase, each endosseous dental implant is placed into the jawbone to serve as anchorage for the support of teeth being replaced. Usually the dental patient leaves with somesort of provisional teeth.
