The implant procedure is conducted under a local anaesthetic, with many patients reporting very little or no discomfort. Requiring only a minor opening in the gum-line, your implant is then guided gently into position.
Following the implant placement, you’ll undergo a sequence of appointments to construct your prosthetic tooth replacement. During this phase your healing will be monitored carefully and you’ll have a temporary tooth option in place. Once your implant treatment is complete and your final restoration is connected, you will be able to relax, knowing that your new tooth is stable, secure and reliable.
Following your implant procedure it is important to remember that maintaining your oral health is essential. Even though your implant is titanium and your replacement teeth are produced from high quality porcelain, your surrounding teeth and gums are still prone to the effects of gum disease.
