The truth is, most people never feel a thing during their dental implant procedure. Once they get past any discomfort caused by numbing medication and preparations, they won’t even remember anything else until they wake up. But if you’re wondering how much pain to expect when it comes to dental implants, you should know that many patients experience no pain at all. So, will a dental implants procedure hurt? Here are some comments from a recent patient (upper-jaw implants): "I barely noticed it was happening: It didn’t hurt at all. I don’t even remember they were going in. I love that I have teeth again—I haven’t had real teeth for a long time. Yes, they feel like REAL teeth indeed!"
There’s no question dental implants have advantages over dentures. Dentures can be functional, but sometimes uncomfortable, and they can also cause sores in your mouth when you clench or grind your teeth. For some people, dentures can feel so awkward that they simply stop wearing them. On top of that, most people who wear dentures find them to be aesthetically unappealing; not something you want to show off! It’s no wonder why dental implants are such a popular option for replacing missing teeth. The look and feel like real teeth! Dental Implants dentist Dr. Iliana Paparisto at Twogether Dental at Danforth Toronto also prefers dental implants over dentures. Make an appointment today!
A dental implant can last a lifetime—which, of course, is ideal. How long it lasts actually depends on how well you take care of it. According to many dental professionals, if you take care of your implants by brushing and flossing at least twice a day and avoiding foods that could damage them (think ice cream or steak), you will never have to replace them. As with anything else in life, proper maintenance will increase longevity. The earlier you get dental implants, however, the longer they’ll last; implants are designed to fuse with bone over time as they become part of your body.
