Two-stage method - Dental Implants Net


The two-stage method requires surgery twice and is applied in most all cases.
Once an implant is placed into the jawbone, the incision is closed followed by a sufficient healing period, and the risk of bacterial infection is considered lower than in the one-stage method. In many cases, this method is selected when providing treatment with bone augmentation.

  • 3.The wound is sutured.
  • 4.Over the next 3 to 6 months, the implant body and the surrounding bone are allowed to bond firmly together.
