Does anyone know who long it takes to get a dental implant and if it is near the front, do they put somethign over it so it does not look like you have a rod sticking down form your gums?
Total process will take between 4 – 6 months. If the missing tooth is noticeable they will make you a flipper or flapper. I’m not sure of the proper term. It’s a fake tooth attached to a retainer type appliance that you can take in and out.
Also there’s no rod sticking out, the screw is in the gum and bone and you can’t see much of it.
Later on when the screw has integrated with the bone they will add the abutment that the crown gets attached to.

The entire process can take up to several months.
Dental implants are not done all in one appointment. It is usually completed over a few months. An implant is usually covered with a porcelain tooth (like getting a tooth crowned). However, the dentist will not likely cover the rod until it has healed.
