2-3 visits — Case Dependent
Once the implant has fully integrated into bone and healed we will begin the process to fabricate the implant restoration. Dr. Bevans will remove the healing abutment and screw in an impression coping to take the final impression. This record will enable the lab to know where and how to fabricate the abutment and crown. You most likely will not have to be numbed for this procedure.
After the crown and abutment are made in about 2-3 weeks, you will have your final visit in which we screw in or cement in your new implant crown. Dr. Bevans will once again remove the healing caps and screw in the abutment. Next we will take an x-ray to ensure a perfect fit. Finally we will screw or cement the new implant crown in.
