You might be surprised to learn that most patients who go through a dental implant procedure report that it is fairly straightforward and less uncomfortable than you might think. In fact, many of our patients say that there's less discomfort associated with tooth implant placement than with a tooth extraction.
Because a dental implant is surgically placed into your jawbone to support a new tooth, it sounds like a complicated procedure; however, Dr. Bagley works closely with a local specialist, so the process goes smoothly and efficiently.
Healing time for a dental implant can take anywhere from three to six months, giving your implant enough time to fuse and integrate properly with your bone. Dr. Bagley will be monitoring your healing and progress every step of the way, and when your implant is ready, he'll design the appropriate restoration to replace your tooth and give you back your smile.
