How Are Dental Implants Placed?
A popular and effective way to address missing teeth, dental implants offer beauty, function, and durability. If you’ve selected this procedure to restore your smile, our experienced dentists will develop a customised treatment plan that precisely places the implants to optimise your outcome. The first step of this approach will be to create a detailed surgical guide—a map of where each implant will be situated based on your anatomic indicators. The oral surgeon will then create a small hole in each implant site and place a titanium post. Depending on your needs, one or more posts may be implanted. Your comfort and care are our highest priorities, and we offer sedation dentistry techniques if you feel any dental anxiety.
After placement, the bone and implant will be allowed to fuse (called osseointegration) over the course of three to six months. During this recovery process you will have a temporary crown in place. Once the bone has healed, a permanent crown will be attached that is colour-matched to your natural teeth to achieve the most natural-looking result possible. In addition to the exceptional aesthetic and long-lasting effect, another benefit is low maintenance. Simply brush and floss regularly as you would with your natural teeth.
