Well it’s been a few weeks now since the extraction of Dr. Freedman’s beloved tooth and a visit here to see how things are coming along is required. By now, the osteoblasts or bone forming cells have migrated to the surface of his new implant and will soon start to grow into it, making the dental implant part of his body!
Everything checked out just great! One observation that Dr. Freedman made was that it is astounding how quickly the body resorbs the un-needed bone. His tongue starts to feel the difference in thickness in the outside area of the jaw bone where his tooth used to be. All Dr. Freedman has to do now is just wait 3 more months to get started on his new implant supported crown. The time will go by quickly! As always, this process went very smoothly and before Dr. Freedman knows it, his new tooth will be biting into his favorite foods!
