Implant Placement Procedure
Dental implant placement is a surgical procedure in which an implant is fitted into the jaw bone for osseointegration to take place, as a permanent means of missing tooth replacement. Not many dentists in Texas perform dental implants, but no need to worry because Dr. Trivedi is an experienced dentist when it comes to implant placement in Austin, TX.
The Three Stage Procedure
Oral implantologists around the globe follow the popular three stage procedure for implant surgeries at their clinics. This method is reliable, efficient and guarantees excellent results.
- The first stage involves numbing the region of the surgery by injecting a local anesthetic agent. The surgical region is then isolated to prevent contamination. With the help of a specialized mechanical drill, the implant is then fixed into the jaw bone (maxilla or mandible) below the level of the gingiva. The purpose of placing the implant below gum level is to protect it from intra-oral forces of mastication. Osseo-integration (integration of the surface of the implant with the surrounding bone) must occur for the success of the procedure.
- During the second stage, the implant is exposed by removing the overlying gingival to evaluate the level of osseointegration that has occurred over time. A specialized dental post known as the abutment is then fitted on to the implant which will later serve as a platform for the crown. Once again, the surrounding gingiva is allowed to heal around the implant and abutment.
- The final stage of the surgery involves placement of the artificial tooth, or the crown, on top of the abutment. To ensure ideal aesthetics, this crown is fabricated using porcelain and matching the shade of the natural teeth. Based on the nature of the case, the crown can either be cemented onto the implant or fitted using a screw.
Single Step Procedure
It is not always necessary to perform implant surgeries in three steps; some cases require immediate implant placement in Austin and are therefore completed in a single step and sitting. In such cases, special, two-piece implants are used that protrude over the gum level while the osseointegration is taking place simultaneously.

The term Implant Crown refers to the ‘cap’ that is placed on top of a dental implant after it has been successfully placed into the jaw bone. A dental implant generally has three parts, namely, the implant, the abutment and the crown. It is one of the most popular means of tooth replacement for patients who prefer long-term, permanent solutions. It is important to know about implant crowns in Austin.
Unlike bridges, dental implants are fixed into the bone (maxilla or mandible) to ensure excellent strength and compatibility with the oral tissues. There are several different types of dental implants based on the space present in the oral cavity, the tooth being replaced, the procedure being used and various other surgical considerations.
Once the implant has been placed into the bone, a certain amount of time is required for healing, or for osseointegration to occur between the surface of the implant and the surrounding bone. Once healing and osseointegration have successfully taken place, the crown is placed atop the implant as the final stage of the procedure.
Types of Implant Crowns
Based on the technique deployed, there are two different types of implant crowns available, namely:
- Screw retained crown
- Cemented crowns
Most dentists prefer screw retained crowns because they are easy to maintain, remove and repair when needed in contrast to the cemented crowns. While both types offer excellent aesthetics, as they match the shade of the natural teeth, some patients may not feel comfortable with screw-retained crowns because the metal screw that connects the crown to the implant is visible on the occlusal surface.

PLACEMENT OF THE CAMLOG IMPLANT SYSTEM ®
First Dr. Trivedi will scan your mouth and use 3D planning software to map out the spacing and placement of your dental implants. This ensures you get the most natural look and feel for your implants. Then you are made comfortable and your mouth is prepared for the implant procedure. Through a series of tools, Dr. Trivedi creates an opening in the jawbone into which the patented Tube-in-Tubeœ™ implant-abutment connection is then placed, and a healing cap is placed to offer support to the gums while the bone grafts to the implant. The patented materials used to manufacture the implant promote rapid healing and grafting.
Once the bone has grafted onto the abutment (usually six weeks) you will return to our office and Dr. Trivedi will the place your new tooth or bridge and screw it into place. Once your dental implants are placed, they are permanent and will give you many years of a bright, natural looking and feeling beautiful smile.
