Many patients find the procedure of implant placement easier than they anticipated. Using the latest 3D imaging, advanced training, and unique material technologies, Dr. Flower can create a customized plan to guarantee that each patient enjoys a result that is secure, stable and long-lasting. The implant post itself is an “artificial root” that is made of titanium and other materials that are compatible with the human body. Dr. Flower’s experienced hands expertly place the implant into the jaw. Most patients experience minimal discomfort during and after the implant procedure. Several types of sedation are available to accommodate each patient’s comfort level.
After the implant is placed, the patient undergoes a healing period of about 3-4 months. Dr. Flower will review several options with each patient to identify the best method to ensure they are comfortable with their appearance and with the function of their teeth throughout this time while the bone becomes firmly attached to the implant. After the implant is secure, Dr Flower will create and attach a custom-made crown or bridge to the implant with small screws or dental cement. Dr. Flower uses numerous components to deliver a result that looks beautiful and feels natural.
