Dental Implants Q&A

Dr. Suman Chibb offers missing teeth treatments to her patients, including treatment with dental implants. Dental implants provide a secure solution for missing teeth through the use of titanium posts, abutments, and dental crowns. Dental bridges and dentures can also be secured with dental implants for a more permanent restoration.

Dental Implant FAQs

Are dental implants painful?

Anesthetic is used during the dental implant procedure, so your tooth pain should be minimal.

How long does it take for dental implants to heal?

The sites of the incisions will heal in one or two weeks. However, it will take three to six months for the titanium posts to fuse to bone tissue in the jaw.

How long do dental implants last?

The titanium posts that make up dental implants can last you a lifetime. The dental crowns that are attached to the posts can last ten to fifteen years with the right dental care.
