How long does a dental implant take?

A dental implant in Sartell, MN replaces your missing tooth from the root up. Because it is so similar to a natural tooth and offers superior function, it is a process. But most patients feel it’s worth it and a true investment in the future of their oral health.

After you’ve been approved for implant dentistry—meaning it is a viable option for you—the process starts with implant surgery.

On this day, your dentist surgically implants your new tooth root, relying on image-guided technology for precision and predictability.

The new tooth root is made of biocompatible titanium that integrates with your natural jawbone over several months. This process creates a durable base for your replacement tooth, also called a dental crown. Your customized crown is interchangeable in appearance compared with your natural teeth.

After crown placement, you are free to expand your dietary choices and enjoy your brand-new smile.

If you have several missing teeth or total tooth loss, talk to your dentist about implant-supported dentures or bridges.
