Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace the roots of missing teeth. They are inserted into your jawbone during a minor surgical procedure that takes place in the dental office. After the implant is placed, it will need at least 3 months of healing, where the implant fuses to the bone before a crown can be placed.
Most people find dental implant surgery very easy to tolerate. Any post-operative discomfort can usually be managed with over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen or OTC pain-relievers. Ice can also be helpful.
At the outset, implants are more expensive than other tooth-replacement methods such as dentures or bridgework, and should never need replaced.
