• Why do people choose dental implants?

    Dental implants are the most natural-looking and natural-feeling replacement for missing teeth. Unlike many other tooth replacement options, dental implants do not slip or click when talking, laughing or eating, making for greater confidence in social situations. Dental implants are also considered a healthy option because they help to maintain the jawbone, keeping the facial structure intact.

  • Is dental implant surgery painful?

    Most people find dental implant surgery very easy to tolerate. Any post-operative discomfort can usually be managed with over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen or OTC pain-relievers. Ice can also be helpful.

  • How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

    Once a Dental Implant is fully integrated with the bone, it can last for many years with good home care and regular dental visits. Implants that were placed over 40 years ago are still working optimally today.

  • How long does it take to place a dental implant?

    Depending on the number and location of the implant, the procedure usually takes an hour if there are no complications.

  • How Long Does it Take to Heal and Then Have the Dental Crown Placed on the Implant?

    After an implant is placed, it typically takes 2-3 months to fully integrate into the bone. In some instances, the implant can be loaded with a crown immediately following surgery, but this is done on a case by case basis. Once integration is complete, the crown can be placed. When you have a consultation with one of our specialists, they will determine the best course of action and inform you of the timelines involved.
