What are dental implants used for?
Dental implants are used to replace a missing tooth or teeth. They can also be used in other restorative treatments for a more durable treatment. Dental implants are used to secure dental bridges and dentures, for a longer-lasting end result.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants can improve a patient’s biting and chewing ability. They are also crafted from durable material that reflects light for a more natural look. Dental implants look and feel like real teeth, and some patients may even forget that they have dental implants after their treatment.
Do dental implants hurt?
Anesthetic is used during the dental implant procedure to numb the area that is being treated. Dental implants also require a healing period of 3 to 6 months, during which they fuse with bone tissue in the jaw. You may feel some pain during the healing period and after treatment, and you should call our office if your pain exceeds several days.
How long do dental implants last?
With the right dental care, dental implants can last patients for up to 20 years. Brushing and flossing regularly, as well as scheduling regular dental cleanings can help you maintain a healthy and attractive smile.
