What Does the Dental Implant Procedure Entail?
Getting dental implants involves two stages: an initial surgery where the implant studs are placed into your jawbone and a second step for placing the abutment and the crown.
During your first visit to our clinic, we will conduct a thorough screening process to check if you are fit to get dental implants. We may also recommend additional tests like X-rays, digital scans, etc., if necessary. Based on these findings, we will design a treatment plan for you.
During your surgery, we will administer local anesthesia and make a small incision into your gums to expose the underlying bone, after which we will insert the implant stud into it using dental adhesives. The wound will be sutured, and the implant will be allowed to heal and bond with the surrounding bone over time.
After this healing period, which may last for a few months, we will move on to the next step and place an abutment on the implant stud that will support the dental crown. The abutment helps connect the implant with the artificial tooth and keeps it in place so that it doesn’t slip out of position or get displaced when biting and chewing food.
