One of the most important things you need to consider when you are thinking of the length of your dental implant treatment is your own health. Healing of a tooth implant and surrounding tissues, like gum and bone should not be rushed because it might affect your appearance, chewing or talking abilities.
To complete your dental treatment, several months or maybe a year is needed which of course asks for patience. Try to think of that your dentist has planned your treatment process carefully and he or she is doing the best for you.
Generally every dental implant treatment at our dental clinic in Budapest starts with a consultation often with an X-ray or a CT scan imaging, during which you also get your detailed cost- and treatment plan. The next step is usually the placement of the dental implant which is followed by the healing period.
After 3-6 months the oral surgeon uncovers the implant site to see how well the tooth implant has integrated with the jawbone. If everything is OK, a healing screw will be placed. Two following appointments are necessary to create and to place the final tooth replacement, which can either be a crown, a dental bridge or a fixed denture.
Don’t forget about the yearly controls which are also important to provide you with a life-long solution of replacing your tooth with a dental implant.
