Several visits to your dentist or dental specialist may be needed until the process is done.
Checkups will be scheduled during the following year so your dentist can be sure your implants are working properly.
You will need to take very good care of your implants.
Implants can cost more than other kinds of replacement teeth and might not be covered by your dental plan. But in most cases this is a one-time cost, unlike other kinds of tooth replacement procedures.
Although rare, possible complications due to dental implants include bleeding, infection, numbness or injury to nearby muscles or the sinus cavity. In some cases, the implant may not be successful because it didn’t bond to the bone.
