Is implant surgery comfortable?
Most patients are pleased to find out that implant procedures usually cause only minimal discomfort and may be more comfortable than other dental procedures such as extractions. Prior to and during procedures, oral sedation, local anesthesia and intravenous sedation may be used to keep patients comfortable. Following treatment, over-the-counter pain medication is recommended. Prescription medicine is also available if needed.
Are implants expensive?
Dental implants are replacement body parts that look and function like natural teeth. They give patients the ability to eat, chew, smile, and laugh naturally. Implant patients are very happy after treatment and consider their implants to be an excellent value for the dollar as well as a long-term investment in the quality of their lives.
How long do implants last?
Implants can potentially last a lifetime, although they are subject to problems like inflammation and bone loss similar to teeth. It is not uncommon for the restorative components to wear or chip while the implant (root replacement portion in bone) remains stable. If this occurs, you do not need to replace the implant, just modify, repair or replace the tooth portion, which is done by your dentist.
