A thorough diagnosis, individual consultation, and a skilled dental team are the cornerstones for successful dental implant treatment.

Step One: Diagnosis and Decision-Making

After gathering information via your oral X-rays, we will assess the treatment options open to you. We will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the various solutions so you are well-informed on every aspect of the procedure before making a decision.

 

Step Two: Implant Placement

Depending on the individual case, a temporary restoration may be placed on the implant during the healing stage, while the bone around the implant grows. A temporary restoration allows you to enjoy a natural-looking smile throughout the entire process.

Step Three: Healing

During the healing phase, the implant bonds with your jaw bone. The bone around the implant grows and integrates with the implant surface, a process that takes anywhere between four weeks and a few months. After approximately one week, your stitches will be removed. Diligent oral hygiene during this phase is vital for successful healing.

 

Step Four: Your New Teeth are Created
