How Do Dental Implants Work?

The process starts with your dentist who then works in conjunction with the OMS surgeons. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons (OMS) are experts with implant procedures.

What happens next is that dental implants are placed into the bone of the jaws following site preparation.

Your OMS surgeon will perform the actual dental implant surgery including the initial tooth extractions, and if necessary, bone grafting.

Your dentist fits and makes the permanent prosthesis. Your dentist also will make any temporary prosthesis, if one is needed, during the implant process.

Our dental implants Wichita surgeons use the most advanced implant surface technology to limit the healing time required for the bone to bond to the implant. This technology ensures your restorations are finished much sooner than in the past. Most patients are ready to begin working with their restorative dentist in just six weeks.

After the dental implant has bonded to the jawbone, the second phase begins. Our surgeons then perform an examination and test the implant to assure that the implant-bone bond is complete. Once that is confirmed, our surgeons then authorize dental implant restoration by your dentist.

Is Dental Implant Surgery Right for Me?

The condition and health of your jaw are the most important factors in being a good candidate for dental implants. Our dental implant Wichita surgeons will do an examination to see if your mouth and jaw are in the right condition for implant surgery. If not, procedures including bone grafting may be necessary to get your jaw where you need to be for dental implants surgery.

What Types of Anesthesia Are Used?

We perform most of our dental implants with local anesthesia, and with or without general anesthesia. Hospitalization is usually not required.
