Dental implants are the modern way to replace missing or damaged teeth. The implant which is made of titanium, is fitted in the bone where the tooth's root would normally be.
A crown can be placed on the base of implant in order to replace the missing tooth.
A dental implant can be used even just after the tooth extraction.
The initial procedure lasts around 15 minutes and is usually done under local anaesthetic.
It takes about 2-4 months for the implant to fully integrate with the bone of the jaw. In case the surgery involves sinus lift, bone grafting, bone regeneration, then the osseointegration period is increased.
In STOMA Dental Clinic, you can have any number of teeth replaced by implants without any pain in a nice and relaxed atmosphere.
The next step is the implant's loading , when the patient is going to have the porcelain tooth. The loading protocol is decided by the oralmaxillofacial doctor evaluating the quality and quantity of the bone plus all the particularities of the case.
This procedure comes when the surgical part is already done.
