Dental implants are complex and serious procedures, but they do have high success rates. When it comes to healing time for the dental implant process, each patient’s mileage may vary. Many factors can impact the healing rate, including the following:
- How many teeth were affected by the procedure
- If the surgery required bone or gum grafting
- If the patient has gum disease, periodontal disease, or poor oral health in general
Every patient will heal differently no matter how well they follow their treatment plan, with some people taking longer to heal than others. While natural teeth are not impacted by dental implant surgery, tooth roots may become irritated after the procedure.
