  • Dental implants are a permanent solution for tooth loss and can last you the rest of your life
  • Custom crowns are matched for size, shape, and color to fit in seamlessly with your natural teeth
  • There are no removable devices to deal with or special care required —just brush and floss as you normally would

Do dental implants hurt?

Dental implants can cause some discomfort during initial placement, but this is not as painful as most people think. The bone where implants are placed does not have any pain receptors, so people don’t experience any pain from implant placement. In fact, any discomfort after the procedure actually comes from the healing of the gum tissues, which usually goes away within a week after the implant is placed.

How do dental implants work?

  • Dental implants are composed of 3 main parts: the implant, abutment, and crown. The implant is the threaded portion that is placed inside the bone. The abutment attaches directly to the implant and is the part that the implant crown attaches to. Finally, the crown is cemented or screwed onto the abutment.
  • Implants are placed in mature bone for a period of time to allow the bone to attach to the surface of the implant, a process known as “osseointegration.” This period is approximately 3-4 months but can vary depending on the quality of the bone and the patient’s ability to heal. Once the implant has enough stability, the abutment and crown are attached to the implant.

What can I expect from my dental implant visit?

During your initial visit, we must first assess to see whether implants are an appropriate option for you. To be a good candidate for dental implants, a patient needs to have enough bone and healthy gum to support the fixture. A 3D X-ray will be taken to evaluate both the depth and width of the bone. If you don’t have enough support for an implant, you’re not out of luck: grafting or other procedures can be performed to provide more space for the implant.

A review of your medical history must also be performed to avoid any complications for implant placement. Patients who are medically compromised, taking bisphosphonates, SSRIs, or certain medications may require extra care and attention. Feel free to call or visit to find out more.

Dental Bridges vs. Implants

For many years, bridges and dentures were the only options for restoring a missing tooth, and bridges were the only fixed prosthesis available, which didn’t require daily removal and care. However, with rapid advancements and improvements in technology, implants have become the gold standard for replacing a missing tooth.

People often choose bridges because of the lower cost. Although bridges do seem cheaper, dental implants are actually more cost-effective long term. Bridges have approximately a 10-15% failure rate at the 10-year mark. This increases to 30% after 15 years! Much of this is due to the difficulty in cleaning under and around the bridge. In contrast, implants have only a 3% failure rate at the 10-year mark.
