During an initial exam, the dentist takes x-rays before devising an appropriate plan of action and eventually molding an implant that will replace one missing tooth. After applying local anesthesia, the dentist embeds the titanium implant into the jawbone, attaches a cover screw, and seals incisions with stitches over the course of around 90 minutes. When the tissues have healed—which can take about three months in the lower jaw and six months in the upper jaw—patients head in for another session, during which the cover screw is removed to make way for a curative abutment, topped with a crown that helps enhance oral aesthetics.
After another two months of recovery, the dentist takes impressions of teeth before affixing a final prosthetic tooth to the abutment. Should patients’ jawbones be deemed unfit to support the implant, the dentist may recommend additional bone grafting or subperiosteal implants that do not pierce the bone.
