We fit the implant: This is a surgical process and the implant is fitted in the bone where the tooth root would normally be situated. A healing screw or component is then placed onto the implant.
A follow up appointment is then scheduled for 12 weeks later to allow for healing and osteointegration to take place.
A dental X-ray is taken and thorough clinical examination is done to ensure the implant is integrated into the bone successfully.
When fully integrated into the bone, an implant abutment is attached to the implant and a crown, a bridge or denture is made to replace the missing tooth or teeth.
