Dental Implant FAQ
Am I a candidate for dental implants?
If you are healthy enough to undergo minor dental surgeries like tooth extractions, and you are interested in a healthy, permanent, and cost-effective solution to your missing or failing teeth, you may be a candidate for dental implants. Schedule an appointment with a skilled oral and maxillofacial surgeon like Dr. Gregory McGee at Idaho Falls Oral & Facial Surgery to find out for certain if dental implants are right for you.
How long is the recovery period for dental implants?
Each patient’s recovery time will differ depending on their procedure and their body’s regenerative capabilities, but in general, dental implants take between three and six months to heal well enough for full chewing capability. Most patients are back to their normal routines just a few days after the procedure, although a diet of soft foods may be necessary for some time.
Will there be pain associated with dental implants?
One of the benefits of dental implants is that once your surgical sites have healed, your implants will feel nearly identical to your natural teeth, causing no discomfort whatsoever. While dental implant patients will experience some discomfort in the first few days after surgery, your oral surgeon should provide you with a prescription for pain medication to relieve any discomfort.
