Dental Implant FAQs
Learn the answers to frequently asked questions about dental implants below:
What are dental implants used for?
Dental implants can replace a missing tooth or teeth. They can also be used to secure other restorative treatments like dental bridges and dentures, for a longer-lasting end result.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants can improve a patient’s biting and chewing ability. They are also crafted from durable material that reflects light for a more natural look. Dental implants look and feel like real teeth, and some patients may even forget that they have dental implants after their treatment.
How long do dental implants last?
With the right dental care, dental implants can last patients for up to 20 years. Brushing and flossing regularly, as well as scheduling regular dental cleanings in our Allentown office can help you maintain a healthy smile.
Are dental implants painful?
During the procedure, anesthetic is used to numb the treated area. Dental implants require a healing period of 3 to 6 months, during which they fuse with bone tissue in the jaw. You may feel some pain during this period or after treatment, and you should call our office if your pain exceeds several days.
