Getting Dental Implants in Westlake Village
The idea of obtaining dental implants can be somewhat intimidating for some patients, but we want you to know that at Linda M. Tincher, DDS, you’re in trusted, capable hands.
Depending on your individual needs, the process of getting dental implants can vary. Most patients require several visits over a period of several months to insure the implant is secure and successfully integrating with your jaw bone.
Prior to Placement
Before your implant is placed, Dr. Tincher will consult you about what to expect during your treatment. This may include bone grafting or a sinus lift, to improve implant placement and longevity. During this planning phase, we will also take a series of X-rays and map your bite.
During Implant Placement
On the day of surgery, Dr. Tincher will make a few small incisions in the gum line, as well as create a tiny hole in the jaw bone. Your implant will be placed directly in this site. Depending in the type of stitches used, an additional appointment may be required to remove the stitches.
After Implant Placement
After your implant is placed, following your post-op directions will keep discomfort to a minimum.
