Are Dental Implants Safe?

KIRKLAND PREMIER DENTISTRY Are Dental Implants Safe? INTRODUCTION Dental implants are fixed artificial alternatives for missing or lost teeth and help restore a patient's tooth in function and aesthetics. The part of the implant or titanium screw that is placed inside the jawbone, is biocompatible. After this screw gets integrated with the patient's jaw bone, the crown is placed on top of it to replace the missing teeth restoring the normal functioning. Dentures and dental bridges have been a popular choice and the most common method for the replacement of teeth in the past and continue to be vastly popular even today. WHO CAN USE DENTAL IMPLANTS Having been used for over 50 years with patients who are generally good oral and overall health, Dental Implants have been a fairly safe and successful option for tooth replacement. Few conditions which prevent the immediate use of implants are Active periodontal disease Inadequate healthy bone tissue to hold the implant Pre-existence of chronic disorders such as diabetes or heart disease HOW SAFE ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS? Dental implants have proven to be not only safe but the best method that dental professionals have been performing for over 30 years now to replace missing teeth. Modern technology and the method of installing implants have continued to improve over the years. Though implant procedures are fairly safe, they are nonetheless surgical procedures and similarly like any other surgical procedure, there are risks involved. The jaw bone grows around a well-placed implant and gives the screww the strength to support the crown & function like a real tooth. Titanium's impressive biocompatibility makes it totally non-toxic and harmless to living tissues. This characteristic also allows it to be highly resistant to corrosion. The cap of the implant is made up of biocompatible ceramic, just like the ones that make routine crowns and bridges. However, if one has a rare sensitivity to copper, zinc, lead, or nickel, the dentist may recommend some other dental solution to replace your teeth. CONCLUSION Dental implants are the best option for the replacement of missing teeth these days. They are very safe and long-lasting tooth substitutes. However, the surgery should be performed by a competent and qualified dentist only.
