If you have a missing tooth or teeth, dental implants in Doylestown are the option preferred most by prosthodontists, including Dr. Link.
However, dental implants rely on a process that does take time, but most patients feel it’s worth it.
Step #1: Visit Your Doylestown Prosthodontist for a Consultation
This step determines whether you’re a good candidate for dental implants. Considerations include the health and viability of your jawbone, sinus placement (for upper implants), and overall oral health.
Your prosthodontist may recommend treatments to make you a better candidate for implants.
If you and Dr. Link decide on dental implants, we arrange your dental implant surgery.
Step #2 Dental Implant Surgery Day
On this day, we numb the treatment site and rely on image-guided technology to place your implant with precision.
The dental implant is a tooth root replacement that integrates into your jawbone across many months. When this process completes, you’re ready for the final step.
Step #3 Dental Crown or Prosthetic Placement
On this day, Dr. Link places your new tooth (a quality dental crown). If you opted for an implant-supported prosthetic instead, this would also be the day we attach your fixed bridge or denture.
For fixed prosthetics, we usually rely on up to six implant posts for stability.
