Dental Implant FAQs | Alpharetta GA
Will I have temporary teeth during the healing phase?
Do dental implants hurt?
During the surgery, you will be properly anesthetized
at all times – you won’t feel a thing! And after surgery, you’ll be relieved to know that most of our patients experience very little, if any, pain that is usually managed well with over-the-counter pain medications. Any necessary prescriptions will be discussed during your visit.
Do dental implants feel like real teeth?
Yes! Your dental implant
will feel, look and operate just like your natural teeth. You will be eating all of the foods that you used to enjoy with your new, permanent tooth before you know it!
Will I need to miss work for dental implant surgery?
What are single-stage implants?
What if I am missing a lot of teeth?
If you are missing many teeth, implant-supported dentures
can give you a full arch of prosthetic teeth attached to just a few implants. This option is a great solution for those who need the quantity of teeth provided by a denture, but don’t want the hassle associated with it.
