The Dental Implant Procedure
The dental implant treatment process will vary depending on the technique and style of the implant. Treatment will also depend on the patients overall oral health, and if additional procedures are required to restore the smile.
Surgically implanted, Dr. Ahrabi will place the dental implants into the healthy bone structure. For some patients, Dr. Ahrabi will place the dental implant and secure a dental restoration in the same visit. For most patients, the final restoration is fit and secured on the second visit to our Oakton, VA dentist office.
The implant will take about 3-6 months to heal fully. During this time the implant will fuse with the bone creating a permanent bond to the jaw. Once recovered, Dr. Ahrabi will secure the final dental restoration to the abutment.
