Understanding Implants:

  • Implants are used to replace teeth without affecting neighbouring teeth.
  • You can replace one or many teeth at at time.
  • The implant acts as the root of the tooth.
  • Once the implant is secure (osseus integrated) in about six months, the tooth or teeth can then be placed on top of the implant.

 

Procedure:

First, we establish that the bone is appropriate to take the implant. Special x-rays and measurements are taken. If okay, then Stage 1 begins. The implant is placed and then covered over with the gum tissue.

Stage 1

In Stage 2, approximately six months later, the implant is exposed and an implant abutment is placed. We then can fabricate a tooth or teeth on the implant or implants.
