When patients do not have enough jawbone density, a bone graft will be placed in the area of the missing tooth. In case of any infections the dental specialist may prescribe antibiotics and other treatments.

This is achieved by a series of incisions in the gums followed by drilling a hole in jawbone to fix the implant properly. After fixing, the surgeon will attach a healing cap or cover screw.

  10. 10. Maintaining the implant: The success rate of dental implants is 95%. But, it is important to brush and floss the implant regularly to prevent gum diseases which may cause the implant to fail.
