Placing Dental Implants
When you’re oral surgeon gives you the go signal for surgery it means you’ve passed the criteria and you are allowed to receive the implants. Your oral surgeon will make a small incision in your gums to expose your jawbone. Tiny holes will be drilled from where the screw-like posts will be placed. You will be given temporary dentures to fill in the gap while you wait for your bone to fully fuse with the implants.
Placing the Abutment
When your bone has fully integrated with the metal screws you’ll be asked to go back again for a second surgery. The second surgery is for the placement of the abutment. The abutment is where the dental crown will be attached. It’s considered minor surgery and is usually done in an outpatient setting. When the abutment is placed you’ll be asked to wait for another two weeks to give your gums time to heal.
