Who Needs Dental Implants?

Who Needs Dental Implants?

Dental implants can be useful for any patient who is missing a tooth or multiple teeth. They are most common for patients who are sixty-five years old or older who suffer from tooth loss. Dental implants can be a great alternative to dentures, bridges, and crowns and can act as temporary or permanent replacements for your natural teeth. Dental implants can help patients with missing teeth preserve the jaw after tooth loss and renew the ability to speak and chew properly. 

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

Dental implants can last anywhere from 10 years to a lifetime with proper maintenance and good oral hygiene. Dental implants are titanium posts that serve as a replacement for the root of missing teeth and provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth. Dental implant procedures usually take an hour or two to complete. Patients may be put under sedation during dental implant surgery and may be prescribed painkillers and antibiotics or take over-the-counter pain killers to manage the pain from the procedure. Patients may have to wait up to three months before the final teeth replacements.
