Why does it take a few months for an implant to heal and why can’t a crown be placed on it right away?

In most cases, a dental implant requires about 3 months to heal depending on each patient’s individual circumstances. Placing biting force on a dental implant that didn’t have proper time to heal can compromise the implant. We understand that most patients would like a "tooth" back in the extracted area as soon as possible; however the feedback we get once the process is completed is that "it was well worth the wait".
