Dental Implants Q&A

Dental Implants

Are you missing one or multiple teeth? Dr. Drew Shulman can help. Dr. Shulman offers dental implants to patients who want to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Dental implants can also be used in other missing teeth restorations such as dental bridges and dentures.


Learn the answers to frequently asked questions about dental implants below:

Are dental implants painful?

You should feel minimal pain during the dental implant procedure. However, anesthesia is used to numb the area during treatment.

How long do dental implants last?

Dental crowns, which cover implants, can last 20 or more years with the right dental care. The titanium posts that make up dental implants should be permanent restorations.

How soon after tooth extraction can you have an implant?

Sometimes a dental implant can be placed the same day as a tooth extraction. However, it usually takes a healing period of 3 to 6 months before implants are able to be placed because the posts must fuse to bone tissue.
