With the right care and maintenance, you can expect your dental implant will last 30 years or longer.
Is the dental implant procedure painful?
Most patients are surprised at how comfortable they are during their treatment. We can provide local anesthesia and oral sedation options to help you feel comfortable and relaxed during the implant procedure.
