Top Five FAQ's About Dental Implants

1. How successful are dental implants? 

Dental implants are one of the most successful procedures in dentistry. When placed properly success of implants can be higher than 95%. Dental implants do not get tooth decay or root canal problems that can cause tooth pain.

2. Is it painful? 

Many patients successfully complete the procedure with minimal to slight discomfort. Medications and proper surgical techniques can allow the patient a pleasant experience.

3. Who is a candidate for implants? 

Healthy young adults to elderly patients are suitable patients who are missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all of their teeth. Your medical history will be reviewed for a safe surgical experience.

4. How long does it take? 

Most patients require a thorough examination followed by appropriate treatment planning. Surgical visits vary based on the individual situation. Some patients can be treated in one short visit and others require multiple treatments.

5. How much does it cost? 

Implant procedure costs will depend on the complexity involved in your treatment based on your individual needs. Your investment in your oral health will benefit you during daily eating and enhance your smile. Insurance may help some patients.
