How Tooth Implantation Works
The restoration of teeth by placement of implants is essentially a surgical operation with the following steps. Examination of the patient's mouth, after which the doctor decides whether a partial or total (adentia) implantation is needed.
At ArtStom, metal structures are implanted into the jawbone with the use of inhalation or injection anesthesia.
Depending on the type of dental implantation, a temporary crown can be placed on the implant right away, or the gums are shaped beforehand to form the right gum margin around the future crown. This is done during a two-step dental implant procedure.
Before a crown is placed on the implant, a cone-shaped abutment is placed on top of the implant, on which the crown or other restoration is then placed. Each implant case is different. Therefore, it can involve additional procedures, such as sinus elevator (by the consumption of artificial bone and membrane).
After the tooth implantation, the doctor gives recommendations to the patient about the care of dental implants and oral cavity. We invite you to our clinic for quality prosthetics!
