Do you have questions about teeth implants? Find all of the answers in this go-to guide.

1. How long does dental implant surgery take?
While the amount of time depends on the case, implants dentistry is usually a very simple procedure that takes less than one hour.

2. Is the procedure painful?
Relax, most patients receive a local anesthetic before treatment to ensure the procedure is painless. Some patients experience minor discomfort once the anesthetic has worn off, but implants dentistry specialists say this discomfort can be eased with an over-the-counter pain medication.

3. Is it okay to eat after implant surgery?
In general, you want to avoid exposing the post-surgical site to food immediately after getting teeth implants. But be assured that most dentists provide detailed instructions about diet and care throughout the healing process.

4. How long will it take to heal after getting dental implants?
Each person and case is different, but implants dentistry experts say that healing typically takes between two to nine months.

5. How long will dental implants last?
You’ll be happy to hear that implants can last for many years with the proper care. In fact, some people have had their implants remain strong for more than 40 years.

6. Is it expensive to get teeth implants?
While implants tend to cost more than other restoration options, they also last much longer, which makes them a more cost-effective choice of care. If price poses a problem, ask your dentist about financing options like DentRite®, which is a discount dental plan that offers significant savings on dental procedures for individuals and families.
