8 FAQs About Dental Implants

  1. 1. S 8 FAQs About Dental Implants Do you know all there is to know about dental implants?
  2. 2. 1. How long do dental implants last? S Dental implants are as sturdy and susceptible to decay as your real teeth. Thus, you must brush and floss daily and take care of your teeth and dental implants. If you care for them properly, they should last a lifetime.
  3. 3. 2. How long does the procedure take? S The amount of time it takes to place dental implants depends on how many implants you’re receiving and the location of those implants. Most dental implant procedures usually take less than an hour.
  4. 4. 3. Is it a painful procedure? S Anesthesia during the dental implant placement procedure should make the surgery pain free. S Once the procedure is over and you’re back home, you still shouldn’t experience much discomfort. If you’re feeling a little pain, Tylenol or Advil usually do the trick.
  5. 5. 4. Are dental implants expensive? S The dental implant procedure can cost anywhere from $1,800 to $5,000 depending on how many teeth you’re getting replaced and how much the dentist charges you in surgical fees. Whether that’s expensive or inexpensive depends entirely upon you.
  6. 6. 5. Are they covered by insurance? S Most dental insurance plans do not cover dental implants, especially if there is a cheaper alternative. However, some do, and some pay a portion of the costs. You’ll have to contact your insurance to find out.
  7. 7. 6. What can I eat after the surgery? S In the hours following your dental implant surgery, it’s best to consume as little food as possible. However, you’re going to need to eat, and when you do, eat soft, nutritious foods and remember to stay well hydrated.
  8. 8. 7. Do they require special care? S Dental implants don’t require any sort of special treatment. Treat them like you would your normal teeth. S Brush them, floss, them, and just make good oral hygiene a priority. S If you know how to take good care of your teeth, you should be okay.
  9. 9. 8. How do I know if I’m healthy enough for dental implants? S If you are well enough to undergo a tooth extraction, then you should be a suitable candidate for dental implants. However, patients with chronic diseases may not be great candidates for this procedure. Talk to your dentist about your health history to find out if it’s right for you.
