What are the disadvantages of dental implants?

The disadvantages of dental implants are:

  1. Dental implants must be placed inside the bone, and this involves a minor surgical procedure. Although it is relatively painless, the fact that it is surgery might make some patients feel anxious.
  2. The amount of time necessary to complete the treatment is longer than with other tooth replacement options. It can normally take between two to six months from implant placement to crown placement. This is also known as osseointegration time, and it varies depending on the area of the mouth where the teeth were lost.
