What to Expect

If you’re considering dental implants, you might be curious about what the procedure entails. At Lasting Smiles Dental Care in Clermont, FL, we offer dental implant services that are overseen by our experienced dental professionals. Here’s what you can expect during your dental implant procedure.

Step 1: Consultation

The first step in the dental implant process is to schedule a consultation with our dental team. During this initial appointment, we'll assess your oral health, discuss your goals for the procedure, and take X-rays and impressions of your teeth to help plan the treatment. If you have any questions or concerns, this is the perfect time to ask.

Step 2: Implant Placement

The dental implant procedure typically involves two stages. The first stage is the implant placement, where our dental team will surgically place a titanium implant into your jawbone. The implant acts as a replacement for the natural root of the tooth. After placement, a healing period is needed to allow the implant to fuse with your jawbone, a process called osseointegration.

Step 3: Abutment and Crown Placement

After the implant has fused with your jawbone, the second stage of the procedure can begin. Our dental team will place an abutment onto the implant, which serves as the base for the final restoration. A custom-made crown, bridge, or denture is then attached to the abutment to complete the restoration.

Throughout the procedure, we’ll use local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. After the procedure, we’ll provide you with detailed instructions for taking care of your implants at home.

At Lasting Smiles Dental Care, we’re committed to providing you with the best possible dental implant experience. Our dental professionals have the expertise and access to state-of-the-art technology to help you achieve a healthy, radiant smile. Don’t hesitate to contact us today to schedule your consultation and take the first step towards a confident smile.
