Dental Implants Q&A

Why do I need a dental implant?

A dental implant is the best way to restore your smile and bite if you have a missing tooth. The implant replaces both the root and crown of your tooth. Getting a dental implant as soon as possible after losing a tooth is important to:

  • Boost your confidence
  • Improve your speech
  • Restore chewing abilities
  • Prevent gum and bone loss
  • Stop your teeth from shifting into the gap

Dental implants are entirely durable. Because they don’t decay, with good oral hygiene and proper care of your gums, implants can last a lifetime. 

What is it like to get a dental implant?

Trusty Dental provides a one-day implant service with tooth replacement, so no one has to know you have a missing tooth. Getting a dental implant is a surgical procedure, so it’s important to ensure you have some time to rest for a day or two afterward.

During your implant procedure, your dentist makes an incision in the area where you used to have a tooth. They work to reach underlying bone, which helps your dentist place an implant into the proper location. Over time, bone tissue grows around this titanium post and permanently secures it into place.

Once your dental implant surgery is complete, your dentist needs to design a crown. They take impressions of your bite and use specialized equipment to create your crown, so you can leave the office that day with a full and complete dental implant. 

Is dental implant surgery painful?

Undergoing any kind of oral surgery procedure can cause some discomfort. But because of advancements and improvements in dental tools and techniques over the years, getting an implant causes very little pain.

The dentists at Trusty Dental want you to focus on your new smile, rather than stress about surgical discomfort. They ensure your gum area is entirely numb beforehand, so aside from some pressure or tugging sensations, you shouldn’t feel a thing.
