Dental Implants in Edina MN, 50th and France Dental Care

We offer dental implants in our Edina, MN dental office for those patients wishing to replace one or more missing teeth. When patients come to us wanting information regarding dental implants, we have noticed numerous misconceptions about them!

Dental Implants Are New in Dentistry

Dental implants have actually been around for decades. The materials, procedures, and success rates have all improved, but the first modern dental implants were actually placed in the first part of the 20th Century, so we have had a lot of time to perfect the process!

Dental Implants Are Painful

At 50th and France Dental Care, we provide pain-free dentistry. While dental implants do require surgery, modern anesthetic and techniques make it possible for dental implants to be a painless procedure. If you have difficulty getting or staying numb, you might be a great candidate for sedation dentistry, which can make anesthetic more effective.

Dental Implants Are Expensive

While all dentistry is an investment in your health, dental implants compare in price to fixed dental bridges, but are much more effective, stable, and better for your oral health. They help to preserve your natural bone and stabilize your chewing surface. Plus, dental implants do not have food restrictions like dentures and bridges!

Dental Implants in One Day Are the Best Option

While it is sometimes possible to place and restore dental implants in one day, it is not usually the best way to guarantee success. Dental implants integrate with your natural bone over time. Your bone and dental implant will “fuse” together, making them incredibly stable, long lasting, and reliable. This process takes from 2-6 months, on average. Rushing the process is not always the best way to go.
