Six dental implants were placed at the dental implant centre in Cape Town. The dental implants were placed surgically into the jaws 6 months ago. The dental implants were placed by a dental implant specialist called a maxillofacial surgeon.The dental implants placed were cost effective and affordable.
A healing period of six months was observed. During the healing period bone grew around the implant to form a union. This union is called "osseointegration". This bone to implant union is what allows teeth to be placed onto the dental implant.
Six dental implant crowns were constructed from porcelain.The crowns were constructed by another dental implant specialist called a prosthodontist. These crowns were then attached to the dental implants in the mouth by a screw.
The patient was amazed at the process and was very thankful to have his teeth back. He mentioned that dental implants can be called toothimplants.
