When it comes to dental implant treatment timelines, it all depends on the quality and quantity of surrounding bone as well as your general health, in addition to other factors.
A “typical” single implant treatment takes approximately 3-4 months. After an implant is placed, your body starts growing bone around it, locking it in place. This is a slow process that occurs over about 16 weeks.
What’s the Difference Between Placing and Restoring an Implant?
The surgical procedure is the placement of the dental implant. During the restoration process, the abutment, which usually connects the implant to a dental crown, is put in place. After that, the dental crown is affixed to the abutment, completing the process.
In some cases, implants can be placed and restored all in one day, especially when placing multiple implants connected together to restore an entire arch of teeth. However, that is not always an option, and the implant process often requires some time and patience.
Healing Time for Dental Implants
To achieve the best results, we want to let your implant fully heal before the process is complete. Healing time can vary per patient. However, we can help you through the process to ensure that you keep your implant healthy and enjoy a strong, reliable tooth replacement.
