How long does it take to get a dental implant?
If you are already missing a tooth, an implant can be placed immediately. You will need to wait 3 to 4 months for it to heal, then a crown an be placed on the implant. If you need a tooth pulled then you need to wait 3 to 4 months for it to heal then have the implant placed. This process can take up to 6 to 8 months before the crown is placed. In some cases you may be able to have a tooth pulled and an implant placed the same day.
