Heartfelt welcome back to tooth number 14
— For roughly thirteen months, there's been a hole in my mouth where tooth number 14 was supposed to be. Earlier this week, I received the crown for my implant, finally finishing the job of refilling the hole. An implant isn't necessarily supposed to take over a year. Based on what I understand, though, it also shouldn't be rushed. Spending a little extra time after the extraction to wait for the bone in the jaw to set is a good thing.
