Dental Implant Process Explained

Are you considering dental implants but have questions about the process and what the procedure entails? Watch this video by Chicago implant dentist Dr. Russell Ras to learn more about dental implants and their applications to replace missing teeth and secure loose, uncomfortable dentures. 

The process depends upon what kind of implant you’re going to get. The process to deliver root form implants is different than the process to deliver mini implants. To compare the two, the process to deliver many implants is less invasive, less time consuming, less auxiliary procedures needed, less cost versus root form implants, which are more invasive. The technique is more invasive. There’s a longer healing time and typically the cost is more.

The first step would be a consultation, which would include an X-ray. The X-ray that we use is called a cone beam, a CBCT X-ray, and it’s a three dimensional image which shows us the height of the bone and shows us the width of the bone. It also shows us the thickness of the bone. That 3D cone beam X-ray is of value because when you have the thickness of the bone, that determines if you’re eligible to put an implant, and what size implants can you put in the bone.

The Mini Dental Implant Advantage

Immediate Results

Because they are less invasive, and don’t require the lengthy healing time of traditional implants, they can typically be loaded with crowns, bridges and dentures immediately.

Less Healing Time & Fewer Visits

Because mini implants are much smaller, placing them is a less invasive procedure—requiring less healing time and discomfort, and fewer visits.

No More Decay

Mini implants are made out of titanium—the same type of material that is used on artificial joints, and they are not subject to decay or periodontal disease.
