How long is the dental implant healing process?

Dental implants in Los Gatos, CA, are restorative tooth roots that the dentist implants in your jaw. These restorative roots can take a few months to integrate into the bone fully. However, when integration is complete, they are like natural tooth roots—in other words, durable enough to support artificial teeth (dental crowns) or restorations like bridges or fixed dentures.

As far as healing, dental implant surgery enjoys a quick recovery. However, it can take a few months for the implants to be ready for restorations or prosthetics. Your dentist can give you a better timeline at your consultation.

Your Dental Implant Consultation and More

We determine your candidacy for dental implants during a thorough consultation. This initial visit accomplishes many things, including whether implants suit you. We also discuss cost, timeline, goals, and potential pretreatments that may help make implants a reality.

Implant surgery is image-guided for precision and is always performed under anesthesia. When the anesthesia wears off, you may encounter minor discomfort and swelling. Most patients do well with Ibuprofen for a few days.
