What to Expect from Implant Dentistry

Grove City Dentist Serving Columbus, Dublin, Hilliard, Ohio

If you are interested in replacing a missing tooth with a lifelike, built-to-last dental implant, Dr. Raymond Sheridan and his team are the dental professionals who can help you get a quality tooth replacement.

Determining If You Are a Candidate

To meet the qualifications of an impland dentistry candidate, you should have good dental health without any pre-existing conditions that might inhibit healing. Dr. Sheridan will also make sure you have a healthy jawbone that can serve as a strong foundation for your implant.

During your free consultation and initial examination, our team will evaluate these and other characteristics to determine if the implant procedure is right for you. 

Moving Forward

 The steps involved with getting a dental implant include the first surgery, where your implant is attached to the jawbone, a second procedure to place the abutment (a small rod that joins the implant to the false tooth) and temporary crown, and the office visit where your new replacement tooth (dental crown) is placed.

Of course, there will be several visits in between these steps to ensure your gums are healing properly and the implant is fusing to the jawbone. Be sure to ask Dr. Sheridan or his team any implant questions you may have before moving forward so you know exactly what to expect.

Sheridan Dental offers free implant dentistry consultations to Grove City, Hilliard, Dublin and Columbus, Ohio area residents who are looking for a solution to missing teeth. Please contact Dr. Sheridan now to schedule yours.
