This treatment basically involves making a small incision in the gums to expose the
underlying jaw bone so that the dentist can prepare the chosen site for implant
placement. During this process, you will feel some vibration, similar to that of having
a tooth filled. This procedure is carried out under local anaesthesia. However, if you
require sedation, please discuss with your dentist.
The bone around the implant heals in a process called “osseointegration”. The
implant is considered stable when the bone grows around it and holds it in place.
This healing process usually takes a few weeks to a few months, depending on your
oral and overall health conditions.
