Four Common Questions About Dental Implants

The Woodlands and Houston, TX

Do dental implants hurt?

Dental implant surgery is relatively painless. The Woodlands implant dentist Dr. Scott Young will take great care to ensure your complete comfort prior to your procedure. During your dental implants consultation he can even discuss sedation dentistry options to help guarantee maximum comfort and relaxation.

After your procedure you can minimize risks for discomfort by closely following all of Dr. Scott’s postoperative instructions. We will remain available to you during and after your recovery period should you have concerns about any discomfort you are feeling.

Are dental implants safe?

Dental implants are made of a biocompatible material that is easily accepted by the body. Nontoxic and entirely safe, dental implants are rarely rejected after they have been placed.

Do dental implants last forever?

Once accepted into the jaw, dental implants will not come loose or fall out. This give dental implants distinct advantages over every other type of tooth replacement.

Do dental implants help prevent bone loss?

Dental implants replace the roots of missing teeth. This allows them to continue sending signals to the body that bone is necessary in that part of the jaw. These signals prevent the body from reabsorbing minerals around the missing tooth, helping eliminate risks for jaw shrinkage and collapse.
