Dental Implants are the tooth replacement option most preferred by doctors and patients alike. If you’ve been thinking about replacing about your missing teeth with dental implants you probably have some questions. Let’s start with the basics.

They are inserted into your jaw during a minor surgical procedure that takes place right in the dental office. After the implant has been replace inside your jaw bone a completely life like new tooth is attached either that day or after healing period.
Absolutely, you can replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or all your teeth with implants. You don’t even need one implant for every missing tooth. As few as two implants can support or stabilize a removable denture and as few as four implants can provide a full set of top or bottom teeth that are totally permanent. Regardless of which option you choose, only you and your dentist will know you have a dental implants.
Surprisingly it isn’t! Any post-operative discomfort can usually be managed with over the counter anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen.
