The Dental Implants Process

Fitting The Implant

After your initial consultation and X-Rays, you will be given an anaesthetic. Your dentist will make a small incision in your gum and then make a small space for the implant.

Fitting The Abutment

The abutment is the screw which holds the false tooth in place to the implant. This may be fitted at the same time as the implant or at a later date.

Fitting The False Teeth To The Implant

The false teeth or false tooth may be fitted on the same day of the implant or they may be fitted at a later stage.

Recovery From The Dental Implants Procedure

Recovery time from dental implant surgery will vary according to each patient and will depend upon the number of implants you’ve had. In most cases you may experience a little discomfort or swelling for a few days and you may have to stick to a soft food diet for a week or two. Any pain can be managed with medication which your dentist can talk to you about.
