A dental implant is an artificial root of a tooth that is used to support dental restorations or replacements. They do not require neighboring teeth for support so dental implants can actually be more beneficial in the long run in terms of overall teeth health.
The goal of these treatments is to create conditions that enable tissues in the mouth to heal. This is done by reducing plaque, infection, and other causes of periodontal disease. In about 4 to 8 weeks, you’ll have another evaluation. Depending on various factors, surgery may be the next step.

Implant therapy involves the placement of a titanium post into the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth, onto which a crown is then attached to replace the visible part of the tooth.
The healing process after implant surgery can vary depending on the individual and the complexity of the procedure, but generally, it can take several weeks to a few months for the implant to fully integrate with the jawbone.
Dental insurance coverage for implant therapy can vary greatly depending on your specific plan. It's best to check with your insurance provider for details.
