If I want dental implants, how do I start the process?

Getting an implant begins with a complimentary visit to our office. We will review your options and help you make an informed decision on how to proceed.

What should I know before having dental implants?

Dr. Florio or Dr. Kohner will explain the treatment program, including all facets of the procedures, before they begin the process. This includes the length of time from the initial visit to the appropriate follow-up care. They will answer any and all questions you may have so that you know what to expect each time you visit the office.

Are dental implants painful?

Most patients experience little or no discomfort. If there is any irritation, Advil or Tylenol will remove any pain associated with the procedure.
It is possible that patients may experience pain the first day after their dental implants; some residual pain may linger on the second day. When compared to a tooth extraction, dental implants tend to be less painful.

How long does it take to get overdentures?

From beginning to end, the entire process for overdentures takes several weeks. Depending on your situation, you can return to our office for a free consultation.

Do I need two or four implants for overdentures?

Whether you need two or four dental implants is an individual decision. There are several considerations to be thoroughly explored before proceeding with two or four implants.
