Evaluation for dental implants
Dental implants represent the newest method for replacing missing teeth. In this article we offer you some information about the dental implant procedure.

Implant therapy involves a team. A dental specialist, usually a dental surgeon places the implant or implants. A periodontist can also place a dental implant or implants. Then a restorative dentist takes over. This is usually a general dentist or prosthodontist. The restorative dentist will make the crowns, bridges or dentures that the implant or implants will support.

Your first step is to make an appointment with one of these professionals for an evaluation. He or she will coordinate your treatment with the other members of the implant team.

Your initial evaluation will include an examination of your mouth and teeth and a thorough review of your medical and dental histories.

Your mouth will be X-rayed. You might also have a CT scan (computed tomography). This will provide information on the amount of bone in your jaw and its shape and where the nerves and sinuses are.

Finally, you and your dentist will discuss the options available to you. You will talk about the procedure, and its cost and possible complications. Your dentist will work with you to develop a treatment plan for your needs and preferences.

If you decide for a dental implant you’ll have to make sure that you know how the procedure is done and what it involves.
