Dental Implants: True or False?

Anyone who is missing teeth probably has a desire to replace them. However, they might not want to get dentures to do it. You may want to talk with your dentist in Alpharetta about the possibility of getting dental implants instead. Implant dentistry is a good option with a number of benefits. However, if you don’t know much about this process, it might be a good idea to check out these dental implants true or false questions, and to speak with an implant dentist.

Dental Implants True or False Question #1 – The Implant Process Is Painful

False. You will find that the process for the implant isn’t painful at all, since they use local anesthesia for the process. After the implant is complete and the anesthesia wears off, there is a slight amount of pain – similar to an extraction. Taking over the counter nonsteroidal pain relievers helps to deal with the minor discomfort.

Dental Implants True or False Question #2 – You Have to Brush the Implants

True. Even though they might not be your natural teeth, that doesn’t mean that you can ignore dental health. You still need to make sure you are brushing and flossing properly if you want them to last. You can speak with your Alpharetta dentist about proper care of your regular teeth, as well as your implants.

Dental Implants True or False Question #3 – Dental Implants Can Last for Decades

True. When you take good care of your dental implants, you will find that they can last for a very long time. In some cases, they could last as long as 40 years, which is a much longer lifespan than dentures, which can last between five and 10 years.

    Karen Naide
  • My family and I have been going to Old Milton Dental for 11 years. A few years ago they became out of Network with our insurance carrier and we thought no big deal, we'll just go to a dentist in Network. Well that was the bigest mistake, The level of care at the in Network dentist did not compare. We immediately went back to Old Milton Dental. They are still out of Network but we choose to have good service and an honest reputable dentist.
