The process of fitting a new dental implant is typically done in two parts. The first part is known as the surgical phase, which is primarily carried out by specialists we work with.
Following your consultation to find out whether or not a dental implant is suitable, a hole will be cut into your gum and drilled into the jawbone where the dental implant will be placed. This hole is closed and allowed to heal while your bone is given six weeks to fuse to the implant.
After six weeks of healing, the second phase of constructing the crown for the implant takes place. Impressions will be made of your teeth and used to fashion a crown that fits your mouth as best as possible. This crown is then either bonded with a cement or attached by a miniscrew to your implant.
