If you are missing teeth or are on the verge of needing to have one or more replaced, you should know you can’t do better than dental implants. This is a comprehensive replacement method that gives you back the entire tooth structure to promote better oral and overall health for a lifetime to come. 

Dental implants are placed via oral surgery, which means you do need a little more time to recover. That makes summer the best time to get started with your tooth replacement! Keep reading to learn more about what to expect with dental implants and why this is the best time of year to take the plunge. 

How Dental Implant Placement Works

The total process for dental implants is completed over the course of 4-6 months. First, the implant post(s) will be placed beneath the gum line, where it takes the place of the missing tooth’s root structure. Temporary crowns or a denture will be placed on top of the dental implant(s). Over the course of the next several months, the titanium implant post(s) will gradually fuse together with the jaw bone – a process known as osseointegration. Once this crucial step is complete, you will return to your dentist’s to have your permanent crown or denture affixed on top of the implant post(s). 

Take Advantage of Your Flexible Schedule

The dental implant procedure is straightforward, but you will need to plan for multiple visits to your dentist’s office as well as some time to rest and relax after the initial placement. That’s what makes summertime the best season for dental implants! Things usually slow down this time of year between holidays, vacations, and a generally more relaxed feeling in the air – giving you plenty of headspace to focus on yourself.
