07 Jun What should I expect if my dentist and I decide that dental implants are right for me?
The placement and restoration of implants is a multi-step process that typically takes between six and nine months to complete. This depends on whether you need a tooth extracted before implant placement. The procedure begins by placing a titanium rod where your natural tooth used to be. A healing cap is placed to protect the exposed titanium rod. It will begin to heal by fusing to the surrounding bone. At the end of the healing period, you will be fitted for permanent crowns and have them placed.
