Most individuals with good oral and overall health are suitable candidates for dental implants. However, a thorough evaluation by our experienced team is necessary to determine your eligibility. Factors such as bone density, gum health, and medical history will be considered during the assessment.
The dental implant procedure is performed under local anesthesia and sedation, ensuring that you feel little to no discomfort during the process. After the procedure, some mild soreness and swelling are normal, but these can be managed with prescribed pain medication and ice packs.
The dental implant process can vary from patient to patient, depending on individual healing times. On average, the entire process, from implant placement to crown attachment, can take several months. Our team will keep you informed about your progress at every step of the journey.
With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups, good oral hygiene practices, and a healthy lifestyle are essential to ensure the longevity of your dental implants.
Dental implants offer numerous advantages over traditional dentures. They are more stable, feel more natural, and do not require messy adhesives. Dental implants also help preserve bone health and prevent the deterioration of the jawbone, which can occur with dentures.
