Drs. Hribernik or Gray will uncover or surgically expose the implant/s and attach an abutment/s, which are connecting pieces that join the prosthetic to the titanium screw. ( When the prosthetic crown/s are placed, these posts will not be seen.) At stage two he places either temporary healing abutment/s or permanent abutment/s (depending on the pre-arranged plan between the oral surgeon and your restoring dentist), and refers you back to your dentist for the final fabrication of the prosthetic/s.
Implants are performed in the office using local anesthesia, and either with, or without, general anesthesia.
