Dental Implant FAQs

Dental Implant FAQs at Terrell Hills Dental

Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone to act as artificial tooth roots. Once in place, they can support dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Unlike dentures, which are removable, dental implants are fixed in the jawbone, providing stability and a natural feel. They also promote jawbone health, whereas traditional bridges and dentures may not offer the same level of support.

While many people can benefit from dental implants, they may not be the right choice for everyone. Factors such as jawbone density, gum health, and overall wellness can influence the success of the implant procedure.

With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime. They are designed to be a long-term solution for missing teeth.

At Terrell Hills Dental, patient comfort is a priority. The procedure is performed under sedation to ensure minimal discomfort. Any post-operative pain can typically be managed with over-the-counter pain relievers.

Dental implants can be cared for like natural teeth. Regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups are essential to maintain their health and longevity.

The cost of dental implants can vary based on individual needs, the number of implants, and the complexity of the procedure. We recommend scheduling a consultation at Terrell Hills Dental for a detailed cost estimate.

Dental insurance policies vary. It’s essential to check with your insurance provider to understand the coverage for dental implants.

While the surgical site may heal in a few days, the implants themselves need time to integrate with the jawbone. This process can take several months. However, many patients can resume normal activities within a day or two after the procedure.

At Terrell Hills Dental, we prioritize patient care and satisfaction. Our skilled dental team uses state-of-the-art techniques and materials to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.
