The process starts with a minor surgical procedure, during which the root for your dental implant is set into your jawbone. Then, a waiting process starts so your bone can integrate with the metal post, giving your replacement tooth or teeth a sturdy foundation. This process, called osseointegration, may take several months.
Once your jawbone has healed and the post is sturdily implanted, your Dental Studio at Mark Center provider affixes your replacement tooth — called a crown — to it. Your crown is shaped, sized, and colored to perfectly match the surrounding teeth.
