Who is a good candidate for dental implants?

Most patients are suitable candidates for dental implants, particularly those who need teeth replacement due to dissatisfaction with their current dental state.

How long does the treatment for full mouth dental implants take?

The total treatment for full mouth dental implants typically takes about four to five months. It involves the removal of broken down teeth, the placement of the implants, and the provision of a temporary fixed set of teeth. The procedure itself lasts about two and three and a half hours. Following this, there's a healing period of about three and a half to four months. Once the implants and the body have fused together, the temporary teeth are removed and the final set of teeth are placed.

How long will the dental implants last?

With proper care and regular cleanings, dental implants can last a lifetime.

Do dental implants hurt?

No, dental implants do not necessarily hurt. Like any dental procedure, there can be some discomfort, but with the correct guidelines in terms of being very atraumatic and proper home care, patients often experience very little to no pain.

What are the advantages of full dental implants compared to traditional dentures?

Full dental implants are a significant improvement on traditional dentures. They provide a permanent set of teeth that do not come out and give the patient a beautiful smile on the same day of the procedure.

Will the new teeth match the old teeth?

Yes, the new set of teeth on the dental implants are custom-made to the patient's liking, including the shape, color, and size.

Are dental implants expensive?

While most people think dental implants are expensive, it's actually very manageable. We offer third party financing options to help patients afford the procedure.

What anesthesia options are available for dental implants?

It's up to the patient. We offer sedation for those who prefer to be asleep during the procedure, but if the patient prefers to stay awake, that's also an option.
