A titanium screw is inserted in your jaw. This part of the implant will serve as the artificial root of your new tooth. After this stage of the procedure, your jawbone will need several months to heal. It is absolutely vital that you prioritise your dental hygiene during this period. Once fully healed, your new root will be naturally fused into your jawbone, creating a natural-feeling and strong base for your implant.
At the next stage of the procedure your Dental Travel dentist will fit the abutment and crown to your implant. The abutment works as a screw where - once fitted securely onto your implant base - your new crown will be fixed onto.
