Most people have heard dental implants are a good choice for tooth replacement, but aren’t quite sure if they would be right for them. Of course, you should ask your dental professional if implants are right for you, but here are some answers to commonly asked questions on dental implants.
Can anybody of any age have dental implants?
Yes, young or old, just providing your bone structure is sufficiently developed, you can have a dental implant.

How long does it take to recover from the procedure?
Most people can have a quick recovery, and can easily go back to their normal activities that day after the procedure.
Does it hurt?
No, your Washington DC Dentist, Dr. Dennis Norkiewcz, will make sure that this is a painless experience for you. You will be given a mild local anesthetic while the work is being done, and simple painkillers for any slight post procedure pain you might have.
Are there any medical conditions which will mean I can’t have implants?
Some serious conditions, such as rare blood disorders, some kinds of cancer, severe diabetes, and some physical problems such as lack of bone density, may mean that you are not able to be given an implant. At Lenfant Plaza Dental Arts we offer complimentary consultations to evaluate your teeth and bone for a dental implant.
How do I look after my implants?
Implants do need care. You will have to carry out daily careful brushing and flossing; your implants will need to be examined by an implant expert and cleaned by a dental hygienist every six months like normal teeth.
Who can do this procedure for me?
At Lenfant Plaza Dental Arts, Dr. Dennis Norkiewicz performs these procedures every day and has been placing and restoring implants for 20 years. The advantage in our office is that one doctor does the entire procedure and you will not bounce around to multiple offices. Dr. Norkiewicz will place your implant and in a few short months will make the crown for it.
Will the implant look natural?
Your implant will be carefully blended and matched in with your own teeth, and will look very natural indeed.
How long will an implant last?
Your implant should, with proper care, have a very long life. A lot depends on the skill of the professional doing the implant. It pays to seek out someone with a great deal of experience to do this procedure for you.
