Thanks to the modern dentistry techniques, it’s possible to make the implant placement procedure comfortable and pain-free.
The procedure starts with the jawbone preparation, and the surgeon then makes a cut to expose the bone for drilling holes. The holes are kept deep enough for the implant to be placed properly and placed deep into the bone, like the root.
The doctor may require bone grafting in cases where the bone is weak or lacks the strength to support implant surgery. The surgeon then waits for the jawbone to heal and after that, places the metal post in it.
The entire process, from start to finish, may take many months where most of the time is spent on healing and waiting for the growth of new bone in the jaw.
After this, a temporary crown is given to the patient which is placed to fill the gap, and also for achieving the aesthetic goal. This crown can be taken off for implant procedure, one has to wait until the bone is healed properly.
