What’s the dental implant procedure like?

Visit 1: You will need to stay at least 1 day.

Once you’re ready to go ahead with treatment and a consultation and X-ray has been made, the dentist will set the implant and you will get a temporary crown.

This requires a small operation when the dentist makes incision in the gum in order to gain access to the jawbone. This is carried out under local anaesthesia and you will not feel any pain during the operation.

The bone is prepared and the implant is inserted into the jawbone with high precision.

Finally, the dentist stitches the gums, prescribes medication if necessary, and prepares the temporary crown. You may feel some discomfort during the week following the surgery. This is usually due to having stitches and the normal healing process. The implant needs to be integrated (osseointegration) with the bone after it has been placed, which takes at least 3-4 months in the lower jaw and 4-6 months in the upper jaw.

visit 2: One day

After the implant has gone through the bone integration period (osseointegration), which lasts anywhere from 2 to 4 months, you need to return to our dental clinic to assess the bone integration and make teeth impressions, which are then taken to our dental laboratory to manufacture the final precision made crown, bridge or denture.

visit 3: One day

When the final crown, bridge or denture are ready, you have to visit the clinic again to place them on your dental implants. This is usually a month or two after visit 2.
