Dental Implants FAQ
What are the benefits of dental implants compared to dentures or bridges?
Dental implants are a preferred tooth replacement option because they are highly effective, durable, and long-lasting. They are also permanently placed in your mouth so they feel and function just like natural teeth.
How long do dental implants last?
One of the best benefits of dental implants is that they last for many years — and even a lifetime with the proper care! We will advise you on the best way to look after your dental implants to help them last as long as possible.
Is the dental implant procedure painful?
No! Just like with any other oral surgery procedure, we use the proper anesthesia/sedation to ensure your comfort. Dental implants are a safe, proven way to replace missing teeth.
How long does the entire process take?
There are two stages to getting a dental implant: placing the dental implant and letting it fuse to the bone and then creating and placing the restoration. These occur over one to two appointments. The entire process can take a few months though, as we have to wait until the dental implant has properly fused.
What is the success rate of the dental implant procedure?
In general, dental implants have around a 98% success rate. If you are interested in getting dental implants, Dr. Shah will go over your patient and medical history as well as examine your mouth to determine whether or not you are a good candidate for the procedure. If dental implants aren’t right for you, we are happy to suggest other alternatives.Contact Us
