Dental implant: at what age and for how long?

The dental implant can be offered at any age, as soon as bone growth is complete. The conditions to benefit from an implant are:

  • A sufficient bone mass, verifiable by a scanner examination.
  • Normal healing and good quality of the bone.
  • Good oral hygiene.
  • Good general health.

In principle, a dental implant is supposed to last a lifetime. However, it is possible that restorations are performed on the crown or implant, case by case.

The operation

A first appointment is made with your dentist to extract your tooth in bad condition (remove its root too) and to suture your gum. Then you have to wait about one to two months before he puts the implant in, piercing the bone with a very thin drill. Then you have to wait another 3 to 6 months for the bone and the implant to adhere to each other.

At the end of this period, another appointment is necessary to put the healing abutment of the gum, then the prosthetic abutment, the screw and finally the crown on your implant. You will have pain medication and antibiotics if necessary.

It's painful ?

No, implant placement is not, strictly speaking, painful. Everything is done under local anesthesia. However, you may feel embarrassed for a few days at the implant.

Price and refund

The dental implant has a cost that varies depending on your practitioner. It receives no refund from your primary health insurance fund. If you have a mutual or supplementary insurance, and depending on the contract and the reimbursement rate, it can cover a portion of the price of your implant. Be aware that mutuals that reimburse implants are extremely rare.
