How long does it take to complete the dental implant process?

The entire dental implant process can take several months to a year or more, depending on various factors such as the need for bone grafting, healing time, and the fabrication of replacement teeth.

Are dental implants safe?

Dental implants have a high success rate and are considered a safe and effective treatment for replacing missing teeth. Complications such as infection or implant failure are rare but can occur, especially if proper oral hygiene is not maintained.

How do I care for dental implants?

Proper oral hygiene, including brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups, is essential for maintaining dental implants. It’s also important to avoid chewing hard foods or using teeth as tools to prevent damage to the implants.
