At Magnolia Dental Services, we believe that dental implants can be a life-changing solution for many of our patients. We understand that you may have some questions about the process, so we've put together some frequently asked questions to help you understand the basics.
Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth, such as crowns or bridges.
Who is a good candidate for dental implants?
If you have missing teeth, dental implants may be a good solution for you. Our dentist can evaluate your situation and determine if you are a good candidate for dental implants.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants look and function like natural teeth. They can help you eat, speak, and smile with confidence. They also prevent bone loss in the jaw and can last for many years with proper care.
How long does the dental implant process take?
The dental implant process can take some time, depending on your individual situation. After the implant is placed, the bone needs to heal around the implant in a process called osseointegration. Once the implant has fused with the bone, a replacement tooth can be attached.
Does getting dental implants hurt?
The dental implant procedure is typically done under local anesthesia, so you should not feel any pain during the procedure. Some discomfort and swelling may occur after the procedure, but this can be managed with medication.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants can last for many years with proper care, such as regular brushing and flossing and routine dental checkups. In some cases, dental implants can last a lifetime.
