Oral Surgery

The oral surgery(dental implant surgery) begins with the dentist introducing a local anesthesia into the implant site, he then cuts an incision on the gum's soft tissue creating a flap (that's the reason some use the term flap surgery) in order to expose the jaw bone.

The spot is marked where the hole (osteotomy) will be drilled into the bone in a few steps. After it is begun, it is slowly widened to the final diameter (in general, the bigger the tooth - the wider and longer the implant). In multiple dental implant cases all of the holes are drilled during this time.

The dentist then inserts the dental implant in the hole and screws it down using either an implant motor or a manual wrench .

Once the dental implant is in place the flap is then sutured (stitched up). The whole surgery can last an hour for a single dental implant and a few hours for a multiple dental implant case.

The patient waits for a while for observation and then is sent home. Read more about the stage following this oral surgery - dental implant restoration or denture restoration.
