Having a significant surgery like an implant placement may seem like it would hurt and be difficult to recover from. However, most of our patients report that they're pleasantly surprised at how comfortable and relaxed dental implant surgery can actually be!
A Comfortable Process
The first thing to know is that your jawbone doesn't have any nerves. So, when your Sartell implant dentist places the implant into your jawbone, you won't feel a thing. Many patients report feeling less discomfort from their implant placement surgery than from a tooth extraction.
Your dental implant in Roseville, MN will need a few months to heal and integrate with your bone. This is a natural process that occurs because your implant is made of biocompatible titanium that comfortably fuses with your bone. Most patients do not report any discomfort during the osseointegration process while their implant is fusing with their bone.
Completing Your Restoration
Once your implant heals and integrates with your bone, your Sartell dentist will proceed with your restoration. For a single tooth, a porcelain crown will top your implant. They connect via an abutment, and this process is completely comfortable for patients.
If you're replacing multiple lost teeth, you may be getting a dental bridge or full or partial denture. With these types of restorations, your appliance snaps into your dental implants, which act as the anchors. Your dentist in Roseville will show you how to manage your denture if it's intended to be removable, or your appliance may be fixed and meant to stay in your mouth.
