How Long Does It Take To Get A Dental Implant?

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a great tooth replacement option that our Torrance oral surgeon might recommend to you. However, getting a dental implant does require several steps and quite a bit of time.  Below is an explanation of how long you can expect the entire dental implant process to take.

Step 1: Prep Procedures
Before qualifying for a dental implant, you may be required to get another procedure to get your mouth “ready”.  For instance, you might have to get the natural tooth removed, have a bone graft placed, or perhaps even need a sinus lift.  With each of these preparatory procedures, there is a healing phase that you’ll go through for an average span of three months.
Step 2: Implant Insertion
Once you’ve healed, we’ll place your implant and then there will be another healing period of about three months.  During this time your bone will fuse with the implant and make a sturdy foundation for the crown.
Step 3: Crown Design
When the time comes, we’ll get the necessary scans or impressions of your teeth that are needed to make your custom crown. The crown will likely be made at a dental laboratory and take about 2-4 weeks to complete.
Step 4: Crown Placement
Once your crown is ready, you’ll return to the office for a final appointment and to have it placed.
Step 5: Dental Implant Surgeon
Keep in mind that when getting a dental implant, you may not always have to go through this entire list of procedures.  At Torrance Oral Surgery Center, our surgeon can give you a better understanding of what your treatment will entail.  Give us a call to get started today!

What Our Patients Say About Us

Even our patients who have been told in the past that they are not good candidates for dental implants have found options at our clinic.

Mindy W.

This is a very welcoming center. Everyone seemed very competent and helpful. I had an oral biopsy today. No waiting. The staff were ready for me and all was in place. Dr. Yagoubian was warm , cheerful and I felt in extremely capable hands. I am so grateful I was referred to him. Sincerely, Mindy W.

Raj G.

Dr. Yagoubian is excellent. I was in state for business when my wisdom tooth broke. I was lucky enough to find Dr. Yagoubian's office. Everyone there was professional and courteous. The procedure went smoothly. Dr. Y is highly skilled, meticulous, and a very personable health care provider (a rarity in the field, in my opinion). If you need an oral surgeon, I highly recommend him.

Chahab S.

Dr Yagoubian is an excellent oral surgeon, supported by a very professional staff. They made the experience as stress-free as possible. Highly recommended.

Paul M.

A positive experience from start to end. I got a sense that this was going to go well and it did. Two extractions, two implants, bone graft and removal of four part bridge. Leaving part of the bridge on one tooth. If there were 10stars they would be for Torrance oral surgery group and Dr. Alicia Wolf / Blanco Demtal Group for recommending Ben.
