DENTAL IMPLANTS

A dental implant is used to support one or more false teeth. It is a titanium screw that can replace the root of a tooth when it fails. Just like the tooth root, it is placed into the jawbone.

The benefit of using implants is that they don’t rely on neighbouring teeth for support and they are permanent and stable.

Dental implants are especially practical for patients who can no longer wear removable dentures and patients that do not want to wear them in the first place.

Implant treatment:

  • Insertion of the Implant
  • Healing of the gum ( usually takes from 3-5 months )
  • Implant expose
  • Attachment of extension (abutment)
  • Insertion of crown

How long does the treatment take?

The placement of an implant requires a short visit from 2-5 days, depending on the amount of implants and is followed by a healing period of 3-5 months.

After this you will need to make a return visit that can take up to 2 weeks for the fitting of the abutment and the crowns.
