How long does it take to get a tooth implant?
Q: I am 32 years old. I had a crown for the past 10 years, which came off recently. It was cemented back in place but the dentist advised that if it comes off again, I will need a bridge or a tooth implant. I am considering going to India for the implant and would like to know how long will the procedure take. Do I need to come back for follow ups? What is the cost of an implant?
A:Nowadays we have immediately loading implants where the implant is put on day 1 and a temporary crown is given on day 3 and a permanent ceramic crown given after 6-8 weeks when the implant has taken up. Price ranges from 900-1050 USD each implant with the ceramic crown. Your x-ray would be required for assessment first.
