The first phase of the dental implant procedure is placement of the posts.
Our doctors will numb the area to ensure your comfort and then surgically place a titanium post at the site of your missing tooth. Titanium is biocompatible and is used for implants throughout the body. Over a span of three to six months, the titanium post will fuse with your jaw bone in a process called osseointegration. Once this healing process has been completed, our doctors can continue with the next phase of your dental implant procedure, which is attaching an abutment. An abutment serves as a connecting piece between the post and the crown.
Rising up from the gum line, it allows the crown to appear as though it is growing from the gums, just like your other teeth. The abutment also forms a solid attachment so that you never need to worry about the security of your dental implant. The most recommended tooth restoration method is now dental implants.
In K2 Dentistry, our patients enjoy a high rate of satisfaction with the dental implant procedure, as it results in a beautiful smile that can last a lifetime.
