When you are missing one or more of your teeth, it can be embarrassing to smile. You might put your hand in front of your face, or you might not smile at all. In addition, it can become more difficult to eat some of your favorite foods when you are missing your teeth. It can seem as though there is no hope for you, but that is not the case. Our dentists in Brea work hard to provide you with options. One of those options that might work is implants. Read on to learn more about the dental implants FAQs to see if they could be a good choice for you.
Naturally, one of the most common questions people ask is whether getting this procedure done will hurt. It is typically done with local anesthesia and patients should not feel anything during the procedure. When the procedure is complete and the anesthesia wears off, you could have some minor discomfort that you could relieve with over the counter pain meds.
While the actual amount of time it takes can vary between patients based on the location of the implants and the number of implants, it is a fast procedure usually. Most patients will be finished within an hour.
People do not want to go through procedures that do not last a long time. Fortunately, with dental implants, they are long lasting. In fact, they can last for up to 40 years.
