As the gums and jaw heal around the implant, it will fuse with the surrounding bone, fixing it securely in place. The healing process typically takes around three months, but it can be less in some cases. The implantologist will fit a healing cap to protect the implant during this time.
Once the implant is stable, you will return to the practice and we can then fit a crown on top of it. This new tooth will be bespoke-made for you to match the shape and colour of your natural teeth.
Dental implants are small titanium rods that are placed into the upper or lower jawbone where there are missing teeth.
The titanium rods fuse with the surrounding bone to create a solid foundation for placing a crown, bridge or prosthesis.
The number of implants required depends on the number of missing teeth you have.
