A dental implant is a titanium screw that acts as a replacement to the root of a tooth. It integrates with the bone over time, then an abutment (a connecting part between the screw and crown) is screwed onto the implant and the crown is attached on top. While every patient is different, there is a general process for fitting an implant.
After your consultation to determine your requirements and the treatment costs, you will receive a clinical assessment with one of our implant dentists. If you are a suitable candidate for implants, a dental cone-beam CT (CBCT) scan is taken to evaluate the quality and quantity of the bone.
The next steps will be discussed with you and planned out specifically for your situation.
