Implant Placement Procedure

The dental implant procedure involves 2 main stages separated by a Minimum of 3 and up to 9 month of healing time:

  • Insert a metal screw into the jaw bone
  • This screw (the Implant) is inside the jaw-bone and is not visible 
  • There is an abutment that is screwed onto it and it is visible 
  • In the event that the work is being done in a visible area (like the smile line), the dentist will place a temporary covering on the abutment for esthetic purpose. 
  • The next step is implant restoration
  • Implant restoration -it takes time for implant to take hold
This could range from 3-9 month,depending on individual's rate of healing
