Single implants and their restoration
Endosseous root form implant surgery involves a series of steps that systematically results in the placement of a dental implant. The process typically includes presurgical discussion and instructions, a soft tissue incision, preparation of the bony osteotomy site using progressively larger drills, threading (tapping) the bone when placing implants into dense bone, implant placement itself, cover screw placement, suturing when a soft tissue flap is needed, postsurgical patient instructions, and follow-up care.
