A bone graft is a simple solution if your natural bone is too soft and is unable to support the implant. In this case, it will be crafted on your jaw and in 2-3 months, the graft will create a strong new bone to make sure that your jaw will successfully support the implant.
How long is the treatment period?
Treatment can vary from case to case, but most take 3-4 months between the initial consultation until the prosthesis is mounted. Depending on the condition of the jaw bone and mouth, the treatment period could be extended.
Is it painful?
No! Anesthesia will be administered to the patient before the surgery takes place.
During the healing process, you may encounter some minor pain that will generally only need an over the counter pain reliever.
Aren't implants more expensive than dentures?
Implants are actually less expensive because they are semi-permanent and require no additional cost.
Can older patients get implants?
Yes, of course. Elderly patients can definitely undergo implant surgery after you receive a complete health examination.
Do implants contain harmful metals?
No, implants are made of high-grade titanium metal.
