Implants integrate with the surrounding bone to provide a firm foundation for the replacement of missing teeth. The actual screw is supplied and inserted by the dentist.
The attached crown, bridge or denture is then made by the dental laboratory and sent to the dentist for insertion at the surgery.
Implants and their attachments are placed by a dentist or oral surgeon.
In some cases temporary crowns can be placed just days after or even at the time of surgery.
