Dental Implant Q&A

Dental Implant FAQs

Are dental implants painful?

At the most, you should feel minimal pain during the dental implant procedure. Anesthesia is used to numb the area during treatment for your comfort.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental crowns can last 15 or more years with the right dental care. The titanium posts that make up dental implants should be permanent restorations.

How soon after tooth extraction can you have an implant?

Sometimes a dental implant can be placed the same day as a tooth extraction. However, it usually takes a healing period of 3 to 6 months before implants are able to be placed.
