Once you come back to our Loveland office, we’ll get started on your placement procedure. Dr. Kreimer will first administer a local anesthetic to ensure you won’t feel anything during the procedure. You can also choose one of the sedation dentistry options we have to ensure you’re relaxed and comfortable.
After making sure you don’t feel anything and feel relaxed and comfortable, we’ll start the procedure:
Step 1: Dr. Kreimer will gently move your gums so space is provided for the implants.
Step 2: He’ll surgically place your implant anchor.
Step 3: From there, he’ll place a temporary cap and the gum tissue is repositioned back around the implant.
You’ll leave our office to begin the osseointegration process, this is the process where the bone will fuse into your implants to create a secure bond. This process can take anywhere from three to six months. Dr. Kreimer will give you instructions on the do’s and don’ts during your healing period.
