How Long Does It Take to Complete Treatment?
Posted on November 3, 2014
Treatment time depends on a few factors, including whether bone grafting is needs and whether immediate function procedures are possible. If this type of treatment is possible, replacement teeth are placed the same day that the dental implants are placed, although there is a significant amount of treatment planning that takes place prior to implant placement.
For most patients, dental implant treatment can take anywhere from several weeks to several months, depending upon factors such as the quality and quantity of bone in which the implants are placed. If extensive bone grafting is needed, it can take anywhere from six to nine months to complete treatment.
