A dental implant is endosseous surgical fixture that we place in the jaw bone to replace the root portion of a missing tooth. Once the implant has fused with the jaw bone and after the jaw has totally healed a crown which resembles the natural colour of your teeth is made and fixed to the implant. The time taken for osso-integration of a dental implant treatment varies from 3 – 6 months, depending on the case.
Not everyone is an ideal patient for dental implants. A comprehensive evaluation by will give you an idea of all your available treatment options. The dental implant treatment given by our dentists is painless and expertise in the procedure gives the treatment to the patients. Modern techniques are used so that patients do not even feel a bit of pain while going through the procedure.
There are several steps involved in the placement of a dental implant, and these steps can vary depending on a number of factors. The first step is to place the implant under local anesthesia into the jaw bone. Depending on the type of implant, in some cases, the abutment can be placed on to the implant in the first step. However, in some cases, a second surgery may be necessary to place the abutment.
Once the implant has bonded with the jaw bone and after the gums have fixed onto the implant, an artificial tooth which resembles a natural tooth is made and attached to the implant. The dental implant treatment time varies depending on individual needs but can take a number of appointments and may take up to nine months to complete.
