Today, state-of-the-art surgical techniques are convenient alternatives to place dental implants and allow you to have the dental implant placed in a single session.
The conventional process can take from three to six months of healing. First, Dr. Appleton places the dental implant, which is left for three to six months to heal and integrate with the jawbone. During the healing period, you are given a temporary prosthesis until the permanent crown is put in place.
The procedure chosen depends on several factors, such as your dental health, the number of teeth involved and which teeth are replaced. These factors will also determine the total number of visits throughout the treatment period.
