Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to get dental implants?
This will depend on a variety of factors, including the number of implants you’re getting and where they’re being placed. On average, uncomplicated dental implant placement usually takes about one to two hours to complete.
How long will my dental implants take to heal?
The dental implant process usually takes between two to nine months, depending on your specific treatment plan. Typically, patients need to wait three to six months after their implant surgery for the jaw to fully heal. Patients who need supplemental procedures or are receiving multiple implants at the same time may require additional time for the healing process.
What can I eat after my dental implant procedure?
After your implant fixture is placed, you’ll want to stick to soft foods that are easy to eat while you heal. Foods that are hard or chewy can upset the surgical area and set your recovery back. Some foods we recommend after your surgery are cold soups, yogurt, and soft or melted cheeses. It’s also important to stay well-hydrated and chew away from the implant site until it’s fully healed.
