Yes, they can and sometimes it is actually preferred. Why? Fewer implants might be used to support multiple teeth such as a four-tooth bridge. It is best to see a dental specialist immediately to understand what the best course of action is for you and how you can also potentially use less implants if done together.
How long do dental implants take from start to finish?
This really depends on several factors. In general implants can take anywhere from 4-8 months. Single teeth implants can take slightly less than a multi teeth implant. Bone grafting can add more time to the recovery period. It is strongly suggested to see a specialist and do a free evaluation & dental CT scan to better understand the time period for your specific case.
Can you get a temporary tooth while waiting for an implant?
Dental implants are broken down into two procedures and many patients request a temporary tooth in between to cover any cosmetic gaps. A dental flipper aka a false tooth can be attached as one option. A retainer can also be used. Our team here at the Dental Community Clinic is well versed in options to help you out.

Are you put to sleep for dental implants?
Yes, and anxiety can be a dentist’s biggest enemy. Sedation Dentistry is becoming a bigger and bigger field. It is preferred for those who prefer comfort and relaxation through what may be deemed a stressful time for some.
