We invite you to start that process today by booking an appointment with our dentist in Stockton, CA.
Dental implants benefit from being the most natural-looking and highest functioning tooth replacement option. The procedure from onset to completion for a dental implant is indeed lengthier than bridges or dentures; however, many patients see the benefits of a dental implant outweigh any inconvenience required by treatment time.
When you visit Dr. Sunen Pandya for your tooth replacement consultation, you’ll learn more about a dental implant’s expected length of treatment. One consideration that will prescribe the timeline for your treatment is the health and strength of your jaw bone at the implant location. If it’s determined that you need a bone graft to support the implant, this will add several weeks to your treatment time. Still, every patient will receive a treatment plan specific to their anticipated procedure. That way, they will know how much time will be needed for their dental implant and plan their future appointments with the least disruption to their work or school schedules.
Some patients may shy away from choosing a dental implant because of the possibility of needing a bone graft which can sound scary. However, we want to assure you that Dr. Sunen Pandya and the care team at SmilePro Dental are committed to performing gentle dentistry, including the option of sedation if requested. Rather than immediately dismissing dental implants as an option for your smile makeover because of perceived discomfort, we invite you to book an appointment to learn first-hand how pain-free the procedure can be!
