Other Dental Implant FAQ’s
Along with the benefits and the cost of dental implants, these are some other frequently asked questions about dental implants.
Does it hurt to get dental implants?
Inserting dental implants is a fairly major procedure. However, it is not as painful as you might expect. Most patients have reported it that it was definitely not as bad as they thought it would be. Many compare it to a tooth extraction.
If you are very afraid of the risk of some pain, then we also offer sleep dentistry. For multiple implants, this can be a simple way to get dental implants. Having dental implants under sedation often allows the dentist to work faster and can also reduce the number of visits required to prepare and insert the new implants.
How long do dental implants take to insert?
The process of getting dental implants takes a few months to complete. There are three common steps involved that all need time to prepare for, and healing also needs to take place between some visits.
The time required to insert implants will depend on many things. This includes the number of teeth to replace, the current state of your surrounding teeth, current oral hygiene and other factors too.
We offer a free consultation for those considering dental implants. During this time, we can provide you with the information you need to help make a choice.
How long do dental implants last?
Once the dental implant procedure is finished, your newly implanted teeth will last a very long time. The goal is that they will last you a lifetime. This of course will depend on how well you look after your teeth and other factors too.
The quality of the implant you get will have a bearing on how long it lasts. We are confident our dentists who are highly experienced in dental implants can offer you a great chance of a long lasting, trouble free implant.
Tips on how to extend the life of your implants are also provided in our clinic during the procedure.
