Are Dental Implants Safe?

Are you considering dental implants but have concerns about their safety? You're not alone. Many people ask, "Are dental implants safe?" The short answer is yes. But let's delve deeper into the subject in this blog post.

Understanding Dental Implants

Dental implants are a popular solution for replacing missing teeth. They provide a strong, permanent base for fixed or removable replacement teeth. The procedure involves surgically placing a titanium post into the jawbone, which acts as an anchor for a prosthetic tooth. Being made of biocompatible materials, dental implants bond with your natural bone, offering a sturdy foundation for your new teeth. This process, known as osseointegration, ensures that the implant becomes a stable part of your jaw.

The Safety of Dental Implants

When performed by a trained and experienced dental professional like Dr. Kasan Stevens at Stevens Dental, dental implant surgery is considered safe. The procedure has a high success rate, with studies showing it to be over 95%. However, as with any surgery, there are potential risks and complications, which are rare and usually minor and treatable. Dr. Stevens and his team take every precaution to ensure the safety and success of your dental implant procedure.

Potential Risks and Complications

Some potential risks associated with dental implant surgery include infection at the implant site, damage to surrounding structures, nerve damage, and sinus problems. These risks are minimized when the procedure is performed by a skilled dentist who follows a careful planning process. In the unlikely event that complications do occur, Dr. Stevens is well-equipped to manage them and ensure the best possible outcome for your oral health.

Long-Term Safety and Care

Dental implants are designed to be a long-term solution for tooth loss. With proper care and maintenance, they can last a lifetime. This includes regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups to ensure the implants and surrounding gums are healthy.
