Dental Implants—Explanation 

The dental implant procedure comprises of the implant, an abutment and a crown. The abutment joins the crown to the implant. The crown is an artificial tooth that fits on top of the abutment, specially made to match your other teeth in shape and colour tone. 

The implant will be inserted on your first visit, which can usually can be achieved in one day. The next trip will be scheduled in between three and six months later in order for both the bone and implant to fuse together. This process is called osseointegration, providing a stable base for your crown. The abutment and crown are both placed on this follow-up visit. 

Please consider that ideal bone level is needed to support the implants. Therefore, if the bone level is too shallow or narrow, bone grafts may be needed for implant placements. Your home-town dentist can provide guidance on bone grafts and other considerations. 

Dental implants would be paid for on the first trip with the abutments and crowns on your return visit.
