How It Works
Initial Implant Placement
The first step in the dental implant process is the placement of a small titanium post into the jawbone during a minor surgical procedure.
Osseointegration and Healing
After the implant is placed, the jawbone needs time to heal and fuse with the implant, a process called osseointegration. Also, a temporary tooth replacement option may be provided.
Once osseointegration is complete, a small connector called an abutment is attached to the implant. This will allow the replacement tooth or teeth to be securely attached to the implant.
After the abutment is in place, impressions of the mouth are taken to create a custom-made replacement tooth or teeth.
Attachment of the Replacement Tooth/Teeth
Finally, the replacement tooth or teeth are attached to the implant securely using the abutment.
