Are Dental Implants Safe
You can restore your smile permanently with dental implants from Brea Implant & Cosmetic Dentistry. Implants require surgery, so you may wonder if they're safe and if there is a risk of serious complications when getting dental implants.
Dental Implants Are Completely Safe
For more than 30 years, this method has been used effectively in dentistry and is regarded as quite safe. For people in good health, dental implants often don't present any significant concerns or issues. You should have good oral health before obtaining dental implants. If you have severe periodontal (gum) disease, for example, you will not be eligible for implants. Before getting implants, you must be able to control and stop the growth of your gum disease.
Complications Are Rare
There is no risk associated with dental implants. It is important to note, however, that there are still some complications that are possible under certain circumstances. Peri-implantitis is the most common complication. This is an infection of the gum tissue surrounding the implant. It may be caused by improper cleaning of the implant site during the surgical procedure, or by improper cleaning and care after surgery. Consequently, working with a dentist who has experience in implant placement and following your recovery instructions after surgery will almost completely eliminate this risk.
Another rare occurrence is the failure of the implant to attach properly to the bone. It is more common in patients with weakened jawbones, so this problem can be avoided by proper pre-implant planning and surgery, such as bone grafting to strengthen the jaw. Rejection of the implant is another complication. This complication is also referred to as foreign body rejection, and occurs when the body's immune system reacts to the implant. The chances of these complications occurring are extremely low, and dental implants are generally very safe.
Am I Too Old for Dental Implants?
When you get older, you might question if dental implants are the best option for you. You could think about the likelihood of success with implants based on your age. You might be wondering if elderly individuals can benefit from dental implants just as much as people of a younger age. Fortunately, dental implants work and function just as well on older people as they do on younger adults. Dental implants assist people of all ages by enhancing their physical health and boosting their sense of self. Adults of all ages can benefit from dental implants.
