State-of-the-art guided surgical techniques are convenient alternatives to place dental implants and allow you to have the dental implant placed in a single appointment using minimally invasive surgery. The major advantage of the guided surgical technique is the minimal amount of manipulation of the soft tissue. This can significantly reduce the healing time and the discomfort normally associated with traditional dental implant surgical techniques
The process can take from three to six months. First, the dentist places the dental implant, which is left for three to six months to heal and integrate with the jawbone. During the healing period, you may be given a temporary prosthesis until the permanent crown is put in place.
The procedure chosen depends on several factors, such as your dental health, the number of teeth involved and which teeth are replaced. These factors will also determine the total number of visits to the dentist throughout the treatment period.
