What to Expect from Dental Implants

Expectations from Dental Implants

If you are missing one or more teeth, talk to a dental implants doctor in Everett to find out what replacement option is best for you. Dental implants offer a number of benefits, including strength, stability, and permanence. Watch this video to learn what you can expect from dental implants.

Your dentist may need to extract a tooth to begin the implant procedure. In the socket that is left without a tooth, your dentist will place a titanium post that will eventually hold the implant crown. You will be numbed during the implant placement procedure, so you won’t feel anything besides a slight amount of pressure. After the implant post is placed, it will heal for a few months before the final implant crown is attached.
