Dental implants are considered the best method of tooth replacement currently available. They look and function just like real teeth, making them fit in with the existing smile and allowing patients to eat foods that could not be chewed with dentures or bridges. While deciding to undergo the necessary surgery is a big commitment, dental implants have an incredible success rate and can significantly improve a patient’s quality of life. Here are a few reasons why dental implants are nothing to be afraid of.

The Surgery Is Precise, Common, and Well-Refined

To be placed properly, dental implants must be precisely planned. Your dentist will have every necessary detail mapped out well in advance of your showing up at the office. Details provided through X-ray and CT imaging will allow them to plan exactly where incisions need to be placed and where the implants will go. The procedure will be handled by an experienced dental professional who knows what to do if something unexpected happens. Because dental implants are so well planned out, they boast a whopping 95% success rate.

Local Anesthesia Renders the Whole Process Painless

Dental implant surgery is performed with the patient under local anesthesia, making it completely painless. The patient will remain conscious but will not experience pain at the surgical site or any of the surrounding tissues. In cases where the patient is still anxious about the surgery even with local anesthesia, the dentist can provide sedation treatments to help them relax during the process.

Modern surgical techniques make it so that patients only feel minimal post-surgical discomfort after receiving dental implants. The dentist may prescribe them some over-the-counter medication to manage the pain.

Dental Implants Are a Long-Lasting Solution

Dental implants have an incredibly high success rate of 95%. While they can be a sizable investment in time and resources, they are also able to last for twenty-five years or longer while looking great and working like real teeth. This can give the patient the confidence that comes with a complete smile, which can open a variety of social and professional opportunities.

Dental implants can allow a patient to enjoy the rest of their life with a complete and beautiful smile. With proper care, they can last for decades, leaving the patient to enjoy the freedom that comes with a complete set of teeth.
