Enhance your life with the IMTEC denture
The system consists of a series of miniature titanium alloy implants that act like the roots of your natural teeth to retain your dentures firmly in place. The entire procedure, from start to finish, can be done in one-day in the comfort of our dental office
What to expect
Implant treatment can be broken down into four phases: treatment planning, implant placement, abutment placement, and crown placement. Dr. Vo will take x-rays and create a model of your existing teeth to determine how the implant should be placed. Occasionally, a bone or gum tissue graft will be needed to provide an adequate site for placement.
Bone grafting material comes from several sources. Autograft bone is material that is taken from another area in your body and transplanted to the desired site. Allograft bone is material that was taken from an organ donor and processed to ensure its safety and improve the handling characteristics. Allograft bone is readily available and does not require a second surgical site.
The implant is then placed in the bone and given a period of time to heal (osseointegrate) before attachment of the abutment and crown. In some cases, you can receive a temporary crown the same day. The final crown is usually placed 3-6 months after implant placement.
Maintaining your dental hygiene is the most important role you will play in the long-term success of your implant. Dr. Vo will give you specific instructions for brushing and flossing the area and put you on a regular check-up cycle. Given proper care, dental implants can give a lifetime of satisfaction.
