Are Dental Implants Safe?
Your dentist may recommend dental implants if you have missing teeth. At River's Edge Dental, we adopt advanced technology and dental solutions to ensure the method is done accurately. Many patients wonder if the invasive dental placement method is safe for them. The answer is that when the method is done by a professional, it is safe.
Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?
A good candidate for dental implants should have excellent health. Your dentist will check your dental health to determine your suitability for this solution. They will review the volume and strength of your bone to support the implants. Ruling out gum disease and tooth decay is also crucial to establish whether the method suits you. We can use diagnostic tests to check whether the procedure will offer effective results.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
There are multiple benefits of dental implants. Dental implants are the most preferred solution for missing teeth since they resemble your natural teeth and help restore your bite. Dental implants will last many years compared to other solutions, such as dental bridges.
When you have missing teeth, your jawbone will deteriorate and lead to bone loss. The implants replace even the root of your teeth and offer stimulation for jawbone regeneration. Another advantage of the implant is that it helps retain the symmetry of your face and ensures you look younger and more beautiful.
Steps in Implant Restoration
Implant restoration involves creating and placing an artificial tooth to substitute a missing natural tooth. The dentist will attach the tooth to the implanted root and fuse it with your bone. The implant surgery involves three primary procedures: placing the implant, attaching the abutment, and placing the crown.
Your oral surgeon will use either local or general anesthesia to make the procedure comfortable and pain-free. The procedure will take a few months, and you will require frequent dental visits during this period.
Before implant restoration, your oral surgeon must ascertain whether you have underlying gum disease or tooth decay. They can use diagnostic tests such as x-rays to check the structural integrity of your gums and bones before placement of the implants.
Are There any Complications of the Dental Implant Restoration?
Dental implant placement is a safe method when done by a professional dentist or oral surgeon. Since it is a surgical procedure, it should be done in a sterile environment to prevent infection transmission. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) must approve the dental materials used during the procedure to be safe and be of the right standards. Talk to your dentist about the expectations of the surgery and whether you are a good candidate for these dental solutions.
Complications of implant restoration are rare and include issues such as infection at the dental implant site, implant reaction rejection, pain, and bleeding. However, when the process is done by experts like River's Edge Dental, you can expect the best results and a permanent solution for your missing teeth.
