The Drawbacks of Dental Implants

As with any procedure, there are also a few drawbacks to be noted. Which are:

Cost - With dental implants, the costs are relatively higher than any other options, and this is the biggest drawback for many patients, as dental implants is a surgical procedure and for this reason, some people will need to go along with the dentist and consider the best option which could be their last option & choice to consider going in for an dental implant

Lack of Bone - It is noted that not every patient is a candidate for dental implant procedures, and before the dentist or oral surgeon agrees to perform this procedure,it is most important to make sure that there is sufficient underlying bone structure to securely hold the plant. Those people who have limited bone, (healthy) there are options for how the implant is secured which would make this procedure a viable option.

Time - This procedure requires multiple visits, and it could take a long time , i.e. from the initial visit until the permanent restoration is secured, and allows the implant to securely attach to the bone and for the surrounding tissue and gums to heal. A temporary restoration is attached to the implant during the healing process.

Discomfort - The person can experience some minor discomfort, and during the procedure, the patient should experience little to no pain if anaesthesia or another pain blocking technique is used. There would be some minor pain and swelling as the implant implant initially heals.

Why Do I Need Dental Implants?

When people loose one or more teeth for various reasons,including infection, gum disease, accident or injury. When these natural teeth are removed many problems occur. If the remaining natural teeth shift, rotate or even become crooked, this will result in an improper bite and make it difficult to chew food properly. The spaces and gaps between the teeth may cause embarrassment, problems, with regards to speech, and also lack of self-esteem. With the help of dental implants missing teeth can be restored, and thereby eliminating these potential problems. Those people who have teeth replace with dental implants report better ability to chew food and eat properly, and also help to renew the persons confidence while speaking and better self esteem.

How long do Dental Implants last?

The two mind-boggling questions people ask when it comes to dental implants are: "What is the long-term success rate?" and "How long will they last?".

The answer to the long-term success rate is,that dental implants,can fail but fortunately this is very infrequent. Failure's, also depend and vary on the site, and in the mouth, whether the implants are placed into natural or grafted bone & whether the patient smokes. However the overall success rates in natural bone is around 95% and even though there is a fall between 85-90% in grafted bone. If the patient is likely a smoker then it has been shown that there are statistically two and a half times more likely to have an implant fail than a non-smoker.

The best steps to follow, and avoid encountering ailing or failing dental implants are to maintain meticulous, oral hygiene, and also evaluate the dental implant both clinically and radio-graphically at frequent recall visits with your dentist.
