Dental Implant Procedure 2 : Building up the bone (optional)

If the available bone volume and bone quality are insufficient, the bone vlume is built up using bone grafts if required. If there is good and sufficient bone quality, this dental implant procedure step is skipped and dental implant post placement is done.

The actual dental implant post implantation is completed in one session. With correct preparation and implementation, the dental implant treatment risks are minimal. Dental implants are usually inserted under local anesthetic as an outpatient procedure. Dental implant post placement may also be done under general anesthesia if preferred.

To provide a stable basis for the new tooth implant in the long term, the dental implant post must knit firmly with the bone. The healing period lasts on average between 6-8 weeks on average for conventional cases depending on the medical situation and bone quality.

Regular and conscientious oral hygiene is crucial for successful healing. If proper cleaning and care are followed, the healing period normally passes without problems, produces no pain or other complaints.
