Dental Implants in Cincinnati OH
Many patients find the procedure of implant placement more comfortable than they anticipated. The modern dental anesthetic numbs the site, and experienced hands carefully place the implant. A tiny guide hole provides a path for threading a small implant cylinder into place. The sterile piece is inserted into an exact location, and a smooth cover, or healing cap, protects the implant during the healing period.
In some cases, a temporary or permanent crown may be inserted at the time of surgery.
Implants can't withstand regular bite forces until the bone has integrated fully into the implant body. Dr. Manju R. Kejriwal will help you decide what will work best during the initial healing period, ensuring you're able to function while still protecting your implants. This period usually lasts 3-6 months as the bone grows around the implant. Most patients experience minimal discomfort after placement, especially compared to an extraction.
