The treatment can take anywhere between one day and six months and depends on the type of bone and where the implant is placed in the jaw.
The implant reconstruction process may take around 4 to 9 months and in some cases longer. Procedures vary, but it usually includes two surgical steps and then the restoration is fabricated.
First, your dentist or a specialist places the dental implants into your jawbone. Bone cells grow around the implants that may take up to six months to occur. Your dentist or the specialist then makes a small incision in the gum tissue and connects a healing post to your implant(s).
The gum tissue heals around the post for a period of 3-6 weeks or longer. Your dentist then attaches a post and makes the replacement teeth. It may take several visits and several months to complete the restoration process.
