How Long Does Typical Dental Implant Placement Recovery Take?

Posted on 11/15/2019 by Palisades Surgical Arts
How Long Does Typical Dental Implant Placement Recovery Take?Dental implant procedures are characterized by a multiple-stage recovery process. The procedure is not a very invasive one. However, it does require that sufficient time be given for the healing process.

There is no fixed time that can be apportioned to the procedure because each procedure varies with factors such as the number of teeth extracted and implants placed; placement of bone grafts; and the subject's general health and fitness.

How Long Before I Recover from a Dental Implant Placement Procedure?

The short answer to the question is that you should keep aside six months for full recovery. The health of your jawbone and your body's response to the procedure may enable you to recover faster. A bone graft can take up to nine months before it is fully integrated into the body. Only then, can an implant be placed.

During the initial recovery phase that can last for a few weeks, the jaws and gums will experience discomfort or pain, especially upon touch. Inflammation may be present. This phase is followed by osseointegration, during which the dental implant and bone come close and bond. This ensures that the implant stays in place.

After osseointegration, an abutment is placed to the dental implant. The procedure requires that the gums be incised to reach the implant for the abutment placement. Recovery from this procedure takes up to a fortnight. Speed up the process by avoiding hard to chew and crunchy foods.

The abutment placement is followed by the placement of the dental crown and bridge. This is the final procedure and the time for recovery depends on the number of crowns placed. The recovery after this procedure is quick and you should be free of pain and discomfort in a week or two.
