Implant Healing

How Long Does It Take for Implant Healing

How long does it take for Sutton dental implants to heal?

Do you wonder how long does it take for Sutton dental implants to heal? Once an implant is placed, it normally takes around three to six months for the bone to fully fuse to it. If you have certain medical conditions, it can sometimes take a little longer.

What about teeth in a day?

If you have a lot of bone and the bone quality is good, we can sometimes place an implant and then attach a temporary tooth onto the implant on the same day. This is called immediate loading. Whist the bone is fusing to the implant you don’t want a lot of pressure on it, otherwise it will not heal properly.

It’s like when a broken arm is cast up to prevent movement. The less it moves, the quicker it heals. If you’re constantly moving it around, it sometimes won’t heal at all – the same concept occurs with the healing of implants. Therefore, we don’t want much force to go onto the implant whilst it’s healing, so we recommend a soft diet. Things like pasta, fish and rice are great. The tooth we attach onto the implant, during the healing phase is often taken out of the bite as well.

When can’t you have an immediately loaded implant?

If your bone quality or quantity is poor, an immediately loaded implant is not a good idea. In addition, if you have a heavy bite or lots of missing teeth, its best to bury the implants so that they heal properly.

What can you do if I am missing all my teeth or need all my teeth taken out?

We can normally extract all your teeth, place 6 implants and secure a full arch implant bridge all in one day. This means that you will leave with fixed teeth! Whilst the bone is fusing to the implants, which can take up to 6 months, we will provide you with a temporary bridge, which will look great. After the three to six months is up, we can provide you with a stunning natural looking permanent bridge.
