Please give me a summary of the steps in the process of getting an implant at your clinic.
The first step is getting an implant consultation with our highly specialized and qualified dentists. You will have an x-ray or a CBCT taken to assess the bone levels and condition of your existing teeth (if any). If you require any teeth to be taken out, we will advise having them removed at least two months prior to the time of implant placement to allow time for infection to clear and healing to occur.
During implant placement, we create space in your jaws to place the titanium implant which will serve as the anchor for your new tooth. The stability of this implant is checked and depending on the condition of your bone, your new tooth may be placed in the same visit or in a subsequent visit to allow for complete bone healing.

How long is the healing time?
