For most patients, the first phase of dental the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. At your first visit the dental implants are placed in your jawbone and buried under your gums for 3-6 months. During this time the implant integrates with your jaw bone and becomes tighter. You are not without teeth during this healing process of implants and will be able to wear temporary healing denture.
After the healing period of 3-6 months, the implants are uncovered and second part of the implant assembly which is abutment is placed at the appointment and the process of making the final prosthesis is started.

These implants do not require a second procedure to uncover them but do require a minimum of six weeks of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. There are even situations where the implants can be placed at the same time as a tooth extraction – further minimizing the number of surgical procedures. Advances in dental implant technology have made it possible, in select cases, to extract teeth and place implants with crowns at one visit.
