Dental implant procedures take one or more sessions, depending on the number of teeth missing and their location. We will take a 3D radiograph to allow for proper planning of the procedure.
Your recovery can be affected by the type of material used for the implant, but also by your overall oral health. The implant itself allows for it to integrate into the jawbone, acting as a new root, but implant therapy may require several months to heal completely.
Once we have your post in place, we will attach the new artificial tooth or teeth. During the healing process, this may be a temporary new tooth or dental implant crowns. Once the healing is completed, it will be replaced by the permanent tooth. During this time, you can expect some swelling, tenderness, bruising, and bleeding, which is entirely normal.
