Straight Talk about Dental Implants

Learn what you need to know about teeth implants, from the procedure to the pain and the price.

1. Does dental implant surgery take a lot of time?
The procedure is usually very simple and takes less than one hour. Of course, the time varies by the complexity of the case.

2. Is implants dentistry painful?
Don’t worry, most patients are given local anesthesia before treatment, so you won’t feel a bit of pain during the procedure. After the anesthetic has worn off, some people have some minor discomfort, but taking an over-the-counter pain medication can relieve this.

3. When is it okay for me to eat after getting teeth implants?
In general, you want to avoid exposing the post-surgical site to food immediately after implants dentistry. But your dentist will give you instructions about diet and care throughout the healing process.

4. How long does it take to heal after getting dental implants?
While this can vary by the person and case, healing usually takes between two and nine months.

5. How expensive is it to get teeth implants?
Implants tend to cost more than other restoration options, but they also last much longer, making them ultimately a more cost-effective choice of care. If price poses a problem, ask your dentist about financing options like DentRite®, which is a discount dental plan that offers significant savings on dental procedures for individuals and families.

6. How long can dental implants last?
With proper care and cleaning, teeth implants can last for many years. Many people have had their implants for more than 40 year without any problems.
