During an initial exam, the dentist takes x-rays before devising an appropriate plan of action and eventually placing 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—patients head in for another session, during which the cover screw is removed to make way for a curative abutment. Following another two weeks, the abutment is topped with a permanent crown that helps enhance oral aesthetics. The dentist then 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 treatments such as bone grafting to prepare the site for implantation.
