Your Teeth Restored in Five Stages.
The complete process of fitting your dental implant(s) may take from 4-9 months, depending upon the extent of the treatment required. Time is needed for your jaw bone to grow around the implant and for your replacement teeth to be made.
Your dentist evaluates your dental health, lifestyle and oral hygiene habits. If you decide to have dental implants, your dentist will plan the treatment together with a surgical specialist.
In the first stage of the treatment the surgeon places the artificial new root in your jaw. While the root bonds to your bone, you wear temporary dentures.
In the second treatment stage, your surgeon securely attaches an extension on the new root.
Your dentist then creates a final new tooth crown together with a dental technician. The artificial crown is made to look like your natural teeth and is permanently fixed in place.
Once your new tooth is completed, good oral hygiene habits will be the key to maintaining your new smile.
