Are you considering a tooth implant procedure for your child instead of dentures? Like most procedures, there are pros and cons to dental implants.
Implants are attached to the bone and, depending on your child’s overall oral health, they include various options for the procedure. Keep reading to learn if a tooth implant is right for your child.
Here are some of the standard questions most people have about getting a tooth implant.
There are multiple steps to an implant procedure, including:
The surgery to attach the root takes roughly two hours and then three to five months to fully connect with the bone. Attaching the implant will take one to two hours.
Anesthesia (numbing medicine) is used when putting in teeth implants, so your child should be comfortable during the actual implant procedure. Some mild discomfort may occur for up to five days after the procedure and can be managed with over-the-counter medications (use as directed).
While the artificial root is healing in the bone, you will be provided with a temporary tooth to cover the hole. This temporary bridge, or “partial,” will ensure that your child’s smile doesn’t have any holes.
Although many dental insurance plans do not cover the cost of implants, check with your local Kool Smiles office to talk about your options.
We always encourage thorough discussions with your dentist to make sure your child is getting the care he or she needs.
Getting implants is an investment that is high on both cost and return. The procedure can vary based on location and how much your insurance covers. Kool Smiles may provide a lower cost alternative.
