How Long Does the Dental Implant Process Take?

Fresno Dentist Serving Madera, Clovis, Visalia, Tulare & Nearby Areas in California

The process for dental implants can take anywhere from three to six months. After your implants have been placed by Madera dentist Gregory D. Miyake, they will undergo a process known as osseointegration in which they are permanently accepted as a new tooth root by your jaw. Though this process may take more time than tooth replacement options such as dental bridges or dentures, the advantages of dental implants make this wait well worth it.

During your initial Madera dental implants consultation, we will be happy to discuss this with you in more detail.

The Dental Implant Process

The dental implant process requires three visits to our office. These will be for the placement of your:

  • Implant
  • Abutment
  • Dental restoration

Each part of the dental implant process is equally important to ensure natural-looking and fully functional restoration of your smile. During your initial consultation, Dr. Miyake will discuss the dental implant process with you and help you determine if implants are the best choice for you.

If you live in or around Madera, California and have questions about dental implants, please contact Gregory D. Miyake today to schedule your initial consultation.
