How long does dental implant treatment take?
Dental implants are one of the best ways to replace missing teeth, especially if you are looking for the most stable and reliable option. In some cases, we can restore dental implants on the same day of surgery, but in most instances, we recommend waiting for complete integration with your natural bone before we place the dental crown. This ensures that the bone is stable enough to support the load from chewing.
Dental implants usually take three main steps:
Planning and Surgery
This is when Dr. Labib will identify the precise location for your dental implant and perform bone grafting if it is needed. If we plan your extraction, we can sometimes place your dental implant at the same time, saving you an additional surgery.
Healing and Integration
Over the period of about 3-6 months, your dental implant and jawbone will integrate and become one. This is beneficial both for supporting your dental crown and for assisting in bone retention.
Custom Dental Crown Restoration
Dr. Labib designs beautiful and durable dental crowns that match your surrounding teeth, so your smile looks completely natural.
