You've likely heard about dental implants and how they replace natural teeth beautifully and comfortably. But many people still have dental implantsquestions before making a decision about the best way to restore their smile. Below, Dr. Terence Geary and Dr. Mary Eileen Geary of Geary Dentistry in Brookfield, WI, have answered some of the questions they hear from patients before they get dental implants.

Does it hurt to get a dental implant?

Since the placement of the post of the implant does require a dental surgical procedure at Geary Dentistry in Brookfield, many patients are under the impression that it will be painful or require a recovery period. For the vast majority of people, dental implant placement is straightforward and virtually painless. It typically takes about as long as a dental restoration and only requires local anesthesia from start to finish. Afterward, you might have some discomfort at the placement site for a day or so, but over-the-counter pain relievers usually eliminate it. There are often no eating or activity restrictions after your post is placed.

Do I need to remove dental implants for cleaning or maintenance?

Convenience is one of the best features about dental implants from your Brookfield dentist, and that means there's no need to take them out to clean them as you would with dentures. With proper care, they'll also never need adjustments or replacements, making them the only completely permanent tooth restoration available.

Could my body reject the implant?

This is a great question! The posts of dental implants are made from either titanium or zircon, which are both lightweight but very strong metals that are known for their biocompatibility. This means that there is a very low risk of rejection or allergy. However, if you're concerned about a possible reaction to the components of dental implants, talk to your Brookfield dentist about an allergy test you can have prior to your procedure.
