How safe are dental implants?

Tooth loss and decaying roots of teeth are a common problem due in part to infection, accidents and gradual tooth loss from decay. These can be replaced by the introduction of implants using titanium studs in a process known as osseointegration (fused with the bone). Small titanium screws in the form of stubs are placed inside the jaw then bond to the bone. The replacement tooth is then placed on top. Using titanium in the mouth generally has no side effects. In many cases, dental implants are the best remedy for missing teeth.

The advancement in dental technology has now made full and partial dentures a thing of the past with many people now opting for implants. Dental implants are widely accepted as a reliable permanent solution. They can be used to for one replacement tooth or for many. The lifespan of an implant is another factor that makes it financially attractive in that they can last for up to 25 years. With proper cleaning, maintenance and regular dental checkups, good care can add years to an implants life.

The vast majority of implant procedures are completely painless and done under local anesthesia. It is important to visit an experienced and qualified maxillofacial surgeon who is skilled and has performed a number of successful implants previously. Missing or lost teeth can be embarrassing for a patient and the introduction of an implant can bring back important changes in personality and confidence. Usually it is difficult to find any difference between the original and the implanted tooth.

There are important health considerations to take into account when considering a dental implant. Smoking, diabetes and other health problems may cause some difficulty in the proper functioning of the implanted tooth. Before opting for a dental implant, it is highly recommended to consult your dentist. After placement, regular checkups, cleaning, and proper care will prolong their life.

A dental implant is a titanium screw and post that is placed in the jawbone in a dental surgery procedure. The surface is treated to help support an integration of the implant, a hole is then drilled into the jawbone, and the implant is placed. Once it heals and adheres to the jawbone, a replacement tooth or fixed bridge is set in place. Depending on the treatment plan, and whether bone grafts are needed, it may take several surgeries to restore a patient’s missing teeth.
