3 Most Common Questions From Patients Considering Dental Implants
Q: How Painful Is Getting Dental Implants?
A: Most patients report that they feel very little, if any, pain after the procedure. In fact, many patients do not have to use any pain pills. Your decision to use implants will help you avoid much pain and discomfort in the long-term.
Besides, given the overall health care benefits, you should not deny yourself proper treatment out of fear of pain. As with any medical or dental procedure, the implant dentist is equipped to provide you with appropriate treatment, including any pain medicines you need.
There are many options to ensure scared patients can have VERY COMFORTABLE care. If fear is keeping you from getting the dentistry you want or need, “you truly don’t have to be afraid anymore.” There are many alternatives to guarantee your comfort.
Q: What is the Cost of Implant Treatment?
A: Many people ask, “How much are implants going to cost?” The only real way to determine actual cost is by consulting with an implant dentist to find out if you have bone loss or if you’ll need one, two or more implants.
So yes, you will need to look at implants as an investment, because it really is a significant decision. A cruise or other trip ends after 5-7 days. Or you can purchase more “stuff” for the house, but is that really as important as being able to enjoy chewing your food, having a smile you’re proud of and an improved health because of your improved nutrition?
A healthy mouth and a dazzling smile pay dividends in many ways for your entire life. Dental implants are admittedly not the least expensive option. If your primary concern is lowest possible cost, then dental implants are not for you.
Q: What do I do now?
A: Dental implants are the fastest way to replace up to 90% of your chewing force. It is the ideal way to get back what has been stolen from you … the magnificent, youthful smile you deserve.
