Question: Does Dental Implant Surgery Hurt?

After years of denture related problems, many patients opt for a superior solution – dental-implant supported dentures.  The procedure starts with dental surgery where titanium implants are screwed into your jaw, and then a denture arch of teeth is attached to the implants. 

The end result is a set of teeth that not only look natural but act and feel like a your original set of teeth.

All about dental implants

Dental Implants is one of the best technologies to come along in dentistry in the last 100 years. Patients with dentures are able to regain a good part of their chewing ability, however, with implants, a patient can regain 80% or more of their origianl chewing ability. And that's why we recommend, dental implant-supported dentures as a permanent solution to wearing dentures.
