Dental implants are considered the gold standard in tooth replacement for many reasons. And the good news is that dental implant placement is not regarded as painful by the overwhelming majority of patients.
Dental implants are thin posts made from durable titanium. These posts take the place of your missing tooth root. After surgical placement, these roots bond with your jaw, creating a stable foundation for your replacement tooth. This new tooth is commonly called a dental crown.
Your dental crown is always customized to match your smile.
During the placement of your implants, the treatment area is thoroughly numb. You may experience periodic pressure as the dentist works, but you should not feel pain. After implant placement, there may be residual soreness when your anesthetic wears off. This is easily remedied with over-the-counter pain relievers.
Once your implant has healed, and your crown placed, you will not feel pain. You may forget you have a dental implant or implants. You simply brush, floss, and visit your dentist in Medina two times each year for dental exams and teeth cleanings.
