Dental Implants: Pros and Cons

Posted on 3/21/2022 by Watermark Dentistry
Dental Implants: Pros and ConsDental implants are the most realistic alternative for tooth replacement. In our upcoming clinical blog, we will go through dental implants in full. Dental implants are typically installed in three stages. The implant is surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw by the dentist. To safeguard the implant, a healing cap is put over it. Bone grafting may be necessary prior to or during implant implantation in some cases. Because the bone in the jaw develops around the implant, it anchors it into place and accepts it as a part of the bone, implants are extremely robust. A bespoke crown, bridge, or denture will be constructed to fit your mouth and implants by the dentist.

Dental Implant Advantages

Successful implants that are well-maintained are intended to last the rest of your life. Dental implants are the most like real teeth. When attached to dentures and bridges, they may significantly enhance fit and feel, as well as your confidence. Many individuals are unable to detect the difference between an implant and their natural teeth. Because implants are linked to the bone in the same way that real teeth are, the danger of bone loss is minimized, which is critical for the health of the rest of your teeth as well as your entire body. Crowns, bridges, and partial dentures are attached to the implant and do not harm your natural teeth, allowing your smile to endure a lifetime!

Dental Implant Disadvantages

A successful implant requires healthy and adequate bone to sustain and secure the implant for the rest of its life. To establish if implants are a possibility, your dentist will do a full examination and evaluation, including x-rays. Implants can take months to heal, and patients may need to remain while they do so. Dental implants have shown to be the most long-lasting investment throughout time. The initial cost of dental implants and the crown, bridge, or denture, on the other hand, is greater than that of fixed bridges and removable dentures.
