How long do dental implants take to heal?

One of the most common questions people have about dental implants is how long they take to heal.

It’s important to understand that there are two parts to dental implants: the first involves surgical placement of the actual implant into the jawbone. The second consists of the placement of the dental crown, also referred to as the prosthetic or replacement tooth.

Most people find that the surgical placement is much less invasive than expected and healing time is minimal so that they can go to work that same day or the next. Most patients do not report any pain after the procedure, and if they experience discomfort, an over-the-counter pain reliever is usually adequate.

For most patients, it takes about four to six months for the implant to integrate into the jawbone, although this can vary widely from patient to patient. This process, called osseointegration, must take place before it can accept a replacement tooth and the implant is strong enough to withstand chewing.

If you have questions about dental implants, contact your Humble, TX dentist Humble Dentistry. We invite you to come in for a consultation so you can learn more about dental implants and whether they are the best tooth replacement option for you.
