2 – Placing the abutment

Once the surgeon has confirmed that the osseointegration is complete, an abutment (the piece where the crown will eventually attach) is placed on each dental implant. The surgeon must first reopen your gum to expose the dental implant.

This step of the treatment uses the ‘Swedish’ technique of dental implant placement, in honor of Professor Brånemark.
