After an evaluation of your mouth, Dr. McCracken installs the implant, a metal cylinder that acts as a tooth root, into your jawbone. The implant is then allowed to become fixed in the bone, a process that can take several months. Once the implant is healed, the dentist attaches an abutment to the implant and fits a crown, which acts and functions like a natural tooth, over the abutment.
The entire procedure requires multiple visits and can take up to a year to complete. Though the procedure is performed in association with Alabama Implant Education, a dental-implant training center, Dr. McCracken installs the implant himself, without any student-dentist participation or observation.
