Brite Dental Implant Procedure 

 

 

Dental implants consist of three parts

  • The implant –  a titanium screw that serves as a substitute for the tooth root
  • The abutment –  a connector placed on the top of the dental implant to connect the implant to the replacement tooth or teeth
  • The crown –  a replacement tooth that you can see above the gum, custom made to match your natural teeth. 

Firstly, our dedicated care team will take the time to put together the best treatment plan for you. Implants can be an option for replacing a single missing tooth, for stabilising dentures, or for making the transition from failing teeth to an implant supported bridge.

Prior to the procedure, a local anaesthetic will be administered to numb the area where the implant will be placed. When you are comfortable our dentist will make a small incision into your gum tissue to reveal the bone. They will then create space using special instruments and will gently insert the titanium implant.   

The Healing Phase 

The bone around the dental implant will grow and integrate with the implant. Careful hygiene procedures are maintained during this period and patients are advised not to apply pressure in the treated region.

During this stage of the process, your dentist may place a temporary restoration on your implant because of aesthetic and functional advantages. 

The Final Stage of the Dental Implant Procedure

Once the healing period passes, the implant abutment is placed so that it can connect the dental implant to the crown. Our highly skilled lab technicians will then fabricate the final restoration for your implant.  Finally, the dental crown is moulded to suit your colour, size and fit and is then bonded to the abutment.
