Thinking about teeth implants? Put your mind at ease with these answers to all of your implant questions.

1. How long do dental implants last?
Teeth implants can last for many years, as long as they’re cared for properly. Some people have had their implants for more than 40 years without incident.

2. How much time does dental implant surgery take?
While the case determines the actual time, implants dentistry is usually a very simple procedure that is completed in less than one hour.

3. Is there pain during the procedure?
Not at all. Most patients receive a local anesthetic before the procedure, so there’s no chance of pain. Some patients experience minor discomfort once the anesthetic has worn off, but implants dentistry specialists say this discomfort can be eased with an over-the-counter pain medication.

4. Can I eat after implant surgery?
In general, you want to avoid exposing the post-surgical area to food right after getting dental implants. But your dentist will give you specific instructions about diet and dental care during the healing process.

5. How long does it take to heal after receiving dental implants?
Each person and case is different, but implants dentistry experts say that healing typically takes between two to nine months.

6. Are teeth implants expensive?
While implants tend to cost more than other restoration options, they also last much longer, which makes them a more cost-effective choice of care. If price poses a problem, ask your dentist about financing options like DentRite®, which is a discount dental plan that offers significant savings on dental procedures for individuals and families.
