Are you living with the loss of one or more teeth? Has it made you self-conscious about your smile and caused difficulty eating, drinking, and speaking? You may be a perfect candidate to receive a permanent tooth implant.
More individuals are coming to periodontists Dr. Alejandro Kovacs and Dr. Tom M. Smith to learn how they can get dental implants in Longview, TX. These patients are tired of living with gaps in their smiles, and want the permanent solution that dental implants can provide.
How Long Does It Take to Get a Dental Implant?
The beginning to end process to receive a dental implant typically takes a few months. At your first visit with Dr. Kovacs and Dr. Smith, your mouth will be examined to determine if you have any dental concerns that need to be addressed before you can receive your tooth implant. Such concerns, for example, may include untreated gum disease, bone loss, or the need to extract hopeless teeth. After any issues have been addressed, we will schedule your implant surgery. During this surgery, the post of the dental implant will be placed into your jaw bone.
It takes from three to six months for the implant post to integrate with the jaw bone. Once this occurs, you will receive the crown portion of your tooth implant, which you can treat as a natural tooth.
Dental Implant Procedure
Traditional implants must be left undisturbed for 4-6 months before healing and growth will allow for the tooth to be replaced. This waiting period allows osseointegration to take place between the tooth and implant. The result is a strong, stable implant.Contact Us Today
