Dental implants have become very popular in recent years, and they are a great teeth replacement option.
If you have missing teeth and feel self-conscious about it, then implants are a great solution. They will enable your teeth to look as good as new again and the effect it will have on your own self-esteem and confidence will be very positive.
One of the main things that hold people back from having them is fear. Fear about them being safe, and will the procedure hurt?
They are perfectly safe and a well researched and established treatment that has been tried and tested and proven to offer many benefits. Whether you need all your teeth replacing or just a couple, they are a safe solution. It is a relatively painless process where a local anaesthetic is used. Although there may be a little discomfort after the treatment, this only lasts about a week and then everything will feel normal again
Here are some more interesting facts about them:
Implants stimulate growth of bones. They are a unique method for replacement of teeth parts that can help the natural growth of bones. Dentures, for example, can cause bone loss and implants prevent that.
They are made from titanium, so they are very strong and lightweight. Titanium is a known resistant to lots of different things such as chemicals, acids, waters, alkalis, etc.
Many medical researchers have shown that dental implants have a great success rate of almost 100%. Of course, success rate can vary depending on their location and how well they were installed, but their success rate is very close to perfect. Unlike dentures, they are more durable and they do not require modifications.
They can hold a lot more weight than dentures. Dentures, for example, can hold about 23 kilograms of force, while implants can hold over 90 kilograms of weight. Besides holding more weight, they don’t lose their strength with time and stay in perfect condition.
Many patients have benefitted from having them fitted and the overall experience has enhanced their quality of life, self-confidence and self-esteem.
