Q: Why do people choose to replace their teeth with dental implants?
A: Because they involve replacing the tooth roots as well as the tooth. This makes the implant sturdy and natural-feeling. People also choose dental implants because they can look just like the teeth they lost.
Q: How long does it take to replace a tooth with a dental implant?
A: Generally, if you need a bone graft before treatment, the process can take anywhere from six months to a year. If you don’t need a bone graft, the process can take anywhere from three to six months.
Q: Can a general dentist place a dental implant?
A: Because dental implant treatment is considered an oral surgery, oral surgeons usually perform the treatment, but dentists and oral surgeons can work together to place the implant.
Q: How do I know if a dental implant is right for me?
A: You should schedule an appointment to find out. Typically, if you have a healthy jawbone and want to replace the tooth and its root, a dental implant can be for you.
