A: Dental implant surgery is performed in phases, with the entire process lasting anywhere from three to nine months, including time off for healing and the growth of new one around the implant.
Phase One: placement of the dental implant into the jawbone, followed by a few month’s rest.
Phase Two: placement of the abutment and the new beautiful tooth, followed by a healing period.
Note: Some individuals will require a bone graft surgery prior to having dental implant surgery. This is common in individuals who have a jawbone that is too soft or is not thick enough to sustain the implant. This will be determined at your consultation visit.
