How long does it take to get a dental implant?

Dental Implant Diagram | Carlton OR Dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth. We proudly provide dental implants in our Carlton dental office as the gold standard of missing teeth.
Choosing a dental implant is almost like having your tooth back again because, with the proper home and professional dental care, your dental implant can potentially last a lifetime. 

As far as a timeline, you can count on about 3-6 months to complete the entire process. If you smoke, need bone grafting, or have underlying dental conditions, it might take longer to complete.

We promise that your dental implant will be worth the wait. Our patients rave about their results because of their many benefits.

Eat your favorite foods

– You don’t have to avoid steak, vegetables, or fruits when you have a dental implant. It works just like your natural tooth. It is still a good idea to avoid chewing ice, which can break dental implants and natural teeth alike.

Your dental implant will not move

– Because dental implants fuse with your natural bone, they will not fall or shift like dentures. They can be used to secure dentures in place.

They look like your teeth

– When you smile, no one will notice you have a dental implant. Dr. Gambee will precisely match your implant to the shade of nearby teeth.
