First, 4 to 5 implants made of titanium are placed in the jaw bone. The jaw bone will then bond with the implants during a process called osteointegration. This process lasts a few months.
After two to four months, the dentist installs a retention bar over the implants. A removable prosthesis (denture) is then placed on this retention bar.
