All About Dental Implants
The full dental implant process will require 2-3 visits to our Chevy Chase, MD dental office. During the first visit, Dr. Banks will perform a full comprehensive exam to determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants. To receive dental implants, patients will need to have a healthy amount of bone structure.
Although Dr. Banks does not perform the surgical aspect of dental implants in our dental office, he will work with a local oral surgeon for the placement of your dental implants. Placement of dental implants is typically performed under local anesthesia to create a comfortable, relaxing space for our patients. Typically, after the dental implants are surgically implanted into the jaw bone, it can take anywhere from three to six months for the dental implants to properly fuse into the jawbone. Once the fusing process is complete, Dr, Banks will attach a dental crown, dental bridge, or dentures as your final restoration option.
