How long after my Implant is placed before I have a new tooth?

Dental Implants in Northport NY The process of osteointegration, the attachment of bone to the implant surface, takes about 3 months. Once the implant is exposed, an impression can be taken. Your new tooth may be ready in as little as a few hours or a few days, often depending on personal preference.

Sites which have been grafted at the time of implant placement are ready usually in 4-6 months. Simultaneous implant placement with a sinus lift requires a minimum of six months healing.

 Bone density varies widely in different areas of the mouth. Implants which are placed into dense bone tend to be more stable initially and our expectation is that they can be restored sooner than an implant placed in less dense bone.

Local factors play an important modifying role in the healing response and need to be considered.

Factors such as smoking, underlying medical conditions (such as diabetes), and the amount and quality of bone available at the time of placement all effect surgical outcomes. The better the local surgical environment and associated favorable history, the sooner we expect to see a favorable healing response.
