Is the process of removing a piece of bone from another part of the patient’s jaw or body and transplanting it into the jawbone.
After this process, it may take several months for the transplanted bone to grow enough to support the dental implant.
Once the jawbone heal, the implant process continues. The next process will place the titanium dental implant post into the jawbone. Healing may take up to several months.
Finally, once healing is complete, the Dentist will place the abutment, an extension of the implant’s metal post, into the jaw. Again, healing will take some time and once its healed, molds of the teeth and jawbone are taken, and the procedure will continue by inserting the final tooth or teeth will be place.
