How long do implants take to heal?

One to two weeks after your surgery, you may notice that your gum tissue has healed quite a bit, but does that mean the implant is good enough to place a crown on?

If you know anyone, or you yourself, have broken or fractured a bone, you probably know that it takes a few months to heal. In a similar way, your implant will take a few months before it is fully healed. After your implant is placed, your implant is evaluated after three months to check its integrity inside your bone. Only once the implant is better integrated into your jaw can a final restoration be placed. For some people, three months is sufficient, but for others, it could be six months to a year. Despite this waiting period, the end result is a beautiful and also functional new tooth!
