Implant Placement: Place implant under anesthesia and form the gum tissue around the implant.
Healing: The bone around the implant grows and integrates with the implant surface during the healing phase, lasting for around 2-3 months.
Placement of Implant Abutment (Second Surgery): When healing is complete we will place in final abutment, a small piece that connects the implant to the crown. Make impression of the implant to order the crown from the dental lab.
Final Crown: When the final crown is returned from the lab, the temporary tooth will be removed and final crown will be perminatly put into place.
