In most cases, the dental implant procedure is completed over a series of months. Once the dental implants are placed, they may take 3-6 months to fully fuse into the jaw bone. After the implants have fused, the abutment is placed and we will take another set of impressions for the fabrication of your final restoration. The type of restoration you receive will depend on the location and number of missing teeth. After the fabrication of your restoration, we will place your restoration during your final visit.
