Dental implants can range anywhere from a single tooth implant, to a multiple replacement option, to even a full mouth reconstruction and dental implants. We have evolved a lot in dentistry. It doesn't take as many implants as it used to in order to restore a patient's mouth. We can do something called an All-on-4, or All-on-5, or All-on-6 where we can completely replace 14 teeth on a patient with as little as six appointments, and we can give them amazing results within a couple of days. The process for a dental implant. Basically, you've got to come in for your initial appointment. We go ahead and take the necessary radiographs. We diagnose. Sometimes it requires treatment planning or planning the implant placement. We can go as easy as doing a single replacement or multiple replacements with a dental implant. The average time for a dental implant can range anywhere from three to nine months, all depending on how compromised the area is and what is to be taking place. I would have to say that 98% of our patients qualify for dental implants. We also have to be aware of the medical conditions. You know, patients that have smoking, that smoke, or have preexisting conditions might not be the ideal candidates for dental implants, and we make sure to address that to all our patients in their initial appointment so they can understand that there might be a little compromise in order to receive a dental implant. Dental implants can range anywhere from as quickly as one-hour appointment, to several hours of appointment depending on the complexity of the surgery and the time that it takes. The recovery process for a dental implant or multiple implants can range anywhere from three to nine months depending on the site and how many implants we will be placing, and making sure that they get completely integrated to the bone and the adjacent tissue. Dental implants are amazing because 98% of the patients are replacing one tooth or multiple teeth. The success rate's over 98% in most of these cases. So patients, automatically it changes their lives. They're able to floss. They're able to clean. They're able to take care of their tooth just like an actual tooth. It's the best replacement for a root.
