Restorative Dentistry: Dental Implants
What is a dental implant?
Dental implant is an artificial root made of titanium that acts as an anchor for your replacement tooth. It’s inserted into your jawbone and the procedure takes less than an hour.
Does getting a dental implant hurt?
Local anesthesia will numb the nerves surrounding the dental implant area. You may feel pressure at times, but it should not cause you discomfort.
