Common Concerns: Addressing Your Questions
Transitioning from dentures to dental implants can bring up a myriad of questions. We believe in open communication and are here to address all your concerns. Here are some common questions we encounter:
Is the procedure painful?
While the dental implant procedure involves surgery, we ensure our patients are comfortable. Local anesthesia is used, and post-operative discomfort is typically minimal and manageable with over-the-counter pain relievers.
How long is the recovery period?
The initial healing phase, where the surgical site heals, takes a few weeks. However, the complete fusion of the implant with the jawbone can take a few months. We’ll provide guidance every step of the way.
Will dental implants feel different from natural teeth?
Dental implants are designed to mimic the feel and function of natural teeth. Once fully healed, most patients can’t distinguish between their implants and natural teeth.
What is the cost of transitioning from dentures to implants?
The cost varies based on individual needs. During your consultation with our Torrance dentists, we’ll provide a detailed breakdown and discuss financing options if needed.
