6 of Your Biggest Questions About Dental Implants—Answered!

Posted in Dental Implants

Are you thinking about replacing one or more teeth with dental implants? Get the answers to your biggest questions first.

  1. “Do dental implants hurt?”

No, getting dental implants is a pain-free procedure. A significant dose of local anesthesia will ensure you don’t feel a thing. Very basic pain medication is usually sufficient to manage any post-surgery discomfort. Implant surgery is so minimal that it’s actually less painful than other dental procedures.

  1. “Are dental implants as strong as natural teeth?”

Dental implants are as strong as natural teeth and can be even stronger because of their direct bond with the bone. You can chew all of your favorite foods with dental implants.

  1. “Can dental implants fall out like dentures?”

No, dental implants aren’t going anywhere once they heal into your jawbone. They aren’t removable so there’s no worry that they’ll fall out like dentures can.

  1. “How successful are dental implants?”

Dental implants have an average success rate of over 95%. They are ranked among the most predictably successful dental treatments out there.

  1. “How much do dental implants cost?”

The cost of dental implants depends on a variety of factors. Price will vary from location to location and also depends on each individual dentist or the materials they use for the procedure. You will pay more for multiple implants than for just one.

  1. “Why should I get dental implants?”

Why should you choose an implant as a tooth replacement? Dental implants:

  • Look and feel natural
  • Preserve the shape of your smile
  • Prevent other teeth from shifting
  • Are easy to maintain

Contact an implant dentist with any other questions you have about dental implants.
