4 Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants

faq imageAt our practice, we love helping patients achieve the smile of their dreams.

For some, that involves dental implants—a treatment that is designed to replace a missing tooth with a completely naturally looking, fully functioning implant.

There’s often many questions that come to the minds of our patients when they’re considering dental implants, and we’d like to share the few that we hear most often!

1. Will people be able to tell I have implants?

Most people will never know—we pride ourselves on using the latest implant technology to match the look, feel and function of your natural teeth. Often times, implants look better than the teeth you had before, as minor imperfections like cracks, chips and discolouration can be corrected.

2. Are dental implants painful?

We do our best to ensure patients are always comfortable during the implant process, and use a variety of techniques to maintain relaxation. You will of course be numbed for the entire treatment and unable to feel any pain. We’ll also do our best to address your every concern.

3. Why does someone need dental implants?

There are a variety of reasons that could leave someone with a need for implants—mainly, they include missing teeth, rotten teeth, infections that require tooth removal, or chipped and fractured teeth.

4. Are dental implants expensive?

While everyone’s situation and needs are unique, we do our best to work with you to ensure affordable dental care is always an option for you. To better understand the cost, we’ll be completely transparent with you at your first visit after taking a look at your mouth to evaluate your specific needs.
