Why consider getting dental implants?

Posted Jun 21st, 2021 in Surgery

Are you missing one or more teeth due to decay, illness, accident or injury? In years past, you may have chosen other options, but these days dental implants have become more viable and affordable. Our Morden dentists explain... 

Why should I consider dental implants?

Dental implants are a permanent solution to a common problem – tooth loss. However, many people are intimidated by them because the dental surgery to get them is often seen as expensive, painful and invasive. If you suffer from tooth loss and are considering your tooth replacement options, our Morden dentists may be able to help alleviate some of your concerns about dental implants.

Easy Care

Are you worried you won’t have time to maintain your dental implants? Unlike dentures - which require continual disinfection and special care at night - dental implants can be cared for in the same way as your regular teeth.

If you stick to a regular, diligent oral hygiene routine approved by your dentist, your implants will continue to function as they should – with no special maintenance required.

Dental implants require dental surgery, making the procedure somewhat more invasive than other tooth replacement options. However, in the long run implants may require less maintenance than dentures of bridges, and in addition, recent advancements in dental technology and techniques have made the dental implant process easier than in decades past.

Minimal Discomfort

Though no surgical procedure is completely without discomfort, you may be interested to know that patients typically feel less discomfort following dental implant surgery than after a tooth extraction.

Plus, placing implants during the same appointment as your tooth extraction means you may notice less discomfort as a result of the implants themselves.

Sedation might also be an option if you're worried that you won't be able to relax during your dental implant appointments.

More Affordable Than You Might Think

Though you may have passed on dental implants before due to concerns over affordability, you may want to take a second look and consider their lifetime cost compared to other options. With dentures, you will face extra ongoing costs that come with accessories, such as disinfectants, storage cases and more.

Bridges need to be replaced every five or so years, and you may have to take time off of work to recover.

The maintenance costs for bridges and dentures can also add up over the years. Taken into consideration along with the fact that - if cared for properly - dental implants can last a lifetime, choosing implants might actually make financial sense for you.

What can I expect during the dental implant procedure?

The implant is laid surgically into your jaw bone, underneath the gum tissue. After the surgery, healing will typically take between 3 to 6 months. The patient will then return to complete the procedure. At this time, the tooth replacement will be attached to the implant. The tooth replacement will be chosen based on the best option for you and could be a crown, a bridge or implant-supported denture. Each of these options will have the function and appearance of a natural tooth.
