You can opt for a single implant or even talk to your dentist about an implant-supported prosthetic like a fixed denture or bridge.
It all starts with a comprehensive consultation in our dental office. Your dentist will talk to you about tooth replacement and ensure you’re a good candidate for implant dentistry. If you’re a new patient, we may also take a health history.
If dental implants are a viable option, we schedule your dental implant surgery.
On implant day, your dentist takes special measures to make sure the treatment location is anesthetized. As a result, you may feel the dentist working in the area, but it will not be painful.
You may notice tenderness or mild swelling after implant placement for a few days, but this is easily treatable with over-the-counter pain medication.
Often, patients discover that they don’t need a pain reliever and find the discomfort mild and easy to ignore.
