Getting An Implant Takes Time
The entire process of getting an implant can take over half a year but is well worth the time it takes since many people are unable to feel a difference between their natural teeth and an implant. Once you decide you would like to have the procedure, an oral surgeon will place the implant and you will be sent home with a temporary crown or denture.
Heal Before The Implant Is Completed
It will take several months for your gums and bone to fully heal before we can place the crown on top of the implant. Once the implant process is complete you will not have to deal with special maintenance to keep the implant healthy and clean. You treat an implant just like you treat your natural teeth with regular brushing, flossing and bi-annual cleanings. Please call us if you have any more questions.
