Getting an implant, whether it is just one implant or a reconstruction of your full mouth, can be a little tough. It’s not like a typical trip to the dentist’s office, but it’s also not a full blown surgery either. Instead, it is something totally different, and it can take a bit to prepare for the procedure.
The start of the procedure will be quite similar to the typical visit to the dentist that you have done before. A dentist will put you under sedation and then get to work, and the procedure will change depending on what type of implant you are getting.
For example, if you are receiving a root canal, then you will be put under and the dentist will start removing infected pulp. Once all of the infected pulp that has damaged the inside of your tooth is removed, they will clean and shape the tooth and fill the space.
Once that is done, you will wake up and get back to your life. Then you will come back to the dentist and they will place a crown on your tooth to protect the recently filled space. Once the crown is placed, the restored tooth will act just like a normal tooth.
Other forms of implant dentistry in Rochester do the same thing, and after the procedures, you will need to return to the dentist to complete a final touch. The touch is typically a crown or other type of cap that will protect the operated on tooth or to make sure the procedure is working okay.
No matter what procedure you do, the aftermath is almost always the same. You’ll need to take a while to get used to the new tooth/teeth, but after some time has passed, it will feel just like normal!
