Simple cases (no need for bone grafting) can be done in as few as four appointments

1. First visit involves a comprehensive consultation including medical history, clinical inspection, x rays, DVD scans and implant simulation. A detailed treatment plan including a breakdown of costs and schedule will be made.

2. At your 2nd visit implant placement and temporary restoration will be done.You will never leave our practice without temporary teeth whilst the implant osseointegrates (fuses to your bone). In a conventional implant procedure a healing abutment (unsubmerged healing) or cover screw (submerged healing, below the gums) is put on the implant. In immediate loaded implants a temporary crown is loaded onto the implant right after the implant placement (see immediate implantation).

3.The osseointegration phase (the healing in phase of your implants) takes around 3 months (complex cases involving bone or soft tissue replacement take longer).
At your 3rd visit we will take impressions which allow our technician to make your final implant supported tooth.

4. At your final visit your implant supported tooth (fixed implant crown) will be integrated (fine tuned) to your bite and mastication.
