Dental implants have improved immensely over the years. We are seeing great success with the new designs and materials available to us now. An implant is a titanium ‘screw’ that is placed in a persons jawbone as anchorage for a future crown to be attached. The question is usually asked, “How painful is it?” Great question and legitimate concern! Most patients have little to no pain after an implant is placed. Most complain more about where the ‘gums’ had to be sutured back together rather than the implant itself.
Implants can replace one or multiple missing teeth. They can also be used to anchor and stabilize either a Full or Partial Denture.
