What are dental implants? Do they hurt?
Dental implants are by far the best option to replace a missing tooth. The secret behind the success of dental implants lies in the fact that they replace both your tooth and your root. This protects the integrity of your healthy remaining teeth and also your keeps your jawbone healthy and stimulated.
Your new root is surgically placed in your jawbone, and it easily integrates with your bone during the appropriate healing time. This procedure isn’t painful as there are no nerves located in your bone. Most patients are pleasantly surprised at how easy and comfortable the procedure is.
