Dental implants are a great alternative for natural teeth replacement. Strong and stable, they can restore a lost tooth and can look, feel, fit an,d function like a natural tooth.
If you are interested in getting dental implants to replace missing teeth, your dentist can do them for you. The provider may administer antibiotics, I.V. sedation, or nitrous oxide to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.
Typically, a local anesthetic is used around the area of placement to numb the area as well. Placement of dental implants typically takes between 30 minutes to an hour for one implant and a few hours for multiple implants.
