Does getting dental implants hurt?

Because dental implants in Royal Oak, MI are surgically placed and take over for your lost tooth root, you may find the procedure daunting. You may be worried about pain. Don’t be!

Your dentist takes special care to numb the treatment site before starting work. This approach means you’ll feel pressure as the new tooth root is implanted, but you should not experience pain.

The procedure starts with a consultation. We want to learn about your smile goals and whether dental implants will help you achieve them. Your dentist also wants to make sure that dental implants are right for you.

Considerations include jawbone integrity and sinus placement. In some cases, you may require pretreatments to make you a better candidate for implant dentistry.

If you decide to go with dental implants, our dentist provides an anesthetic that numbs the area of your jaw we're treating. We then implant the replacement root, guided by imaging for exceptional precision.

After several months, your jawbone incorporates your new root, and you’re ready for a replacement tooth or prosthetic—implant denture or bridge.
