Phase 1 Implant placement. Contact us
Our implant surgeon will apply a local anaesthetic and place a titanium post into the jaw bone in the location of the missing tooth.
This procedure is quick, lasting between one and two hours and relatively painless due to the local anaesthetic. You may experience a small amount of discomfort following the placement of the implant but this will subside and healing will occur relatively quickly.
Phase 2 Biological integration
This occurs when the implant has integrated with the bone, and is usually expected to occur within 8-12 weeks. In a very small amount of cases, this integration may take up to a year.
When the implant has integrated with the bone, it will provide a strong and stable platform for the new crown or bridge.
Phase 3 Restoring the implant
Once your implant integrates with the bone, we are then able to restore the implant. After taking molds of the position of the implants, the final ‘teeth’ can be individually designed, made and cemented or screwed into the implant.
Once in place, they will look, feel and function as a natural tooth.
