The journey to a new smile does not have to be a confusing one. We all have our reasons for wanting to be new and it begins with finding your “why”?
Is it a smile to share with a loved one? Improving your quality of life by being more confident? Or are you simply ready to take the next step to a healthier dental lifestyle?
If you’re new to dental implants and considering them as an option to reach your “why” - don’t fret! We’re here to help demystify implants so you can make the right choice.
The surgery is not recommended for anyone whose facial bone structure is still developing. The procedure can also be more difficult if you are a smoker, have had radiation therapy, are a teeth grinder, or have diabetes. Your dentist will be able to guide you better in terms of whether or not dental implants may be for you.
Despite how they may sound getting an implant is no more painful than getting a root canal and typically patients don’t require a sedative, only local anesthesia. Some potential complications can include infections at the implant site and damage to your other teeth or nerves in your mouth. Some disadvantages of the treatment can include swelling, bleeding due to the surgery, pain, and anesthesia complications like vomiting, drowsiness, and nausea.
