Five Reasons for the Popularity of Dental Implants
According to the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Dentistry, dental implants offer more value than traditional teeth replacement options in the long run.
Here are some of the top reasons that make them a popular dental restorative alternative:
1. How long do implants last?
Well-executed implant surgery and a meticulous maintenance schedule are the two most important factors which govern the life of an implant. If these factors are on point, then your implant can even last you a lifetime.
The surgical part is the job of the specialist, but when it comes to maintenance, the patient is responsible. The basic cleaning routine which includes brushing twice daily, flossing every day and visiting your dentist every 6 months for cleaning and checkup, is mandatory.
A patient needs to be vigilant of any abnormal changes. Any bleeding or pain, out of the blue, need to be addressed. If you’re doubtful about something, don’t hesitate to contact your dentist.
2. Am I too old for dental implants?
There is no upper limit on the age at which one can get dental implants. Even patients ages 85-90 years have shown excellent results in some cases.
The actual problem is the health complications which come with advancing age. These can affect your body’s ability to accept any change. For example, a patient with osteoporosis, which causes hollowing of the bone, will have difficulty in getting an implant due to lack of strong bone.
Other such problems like hypertension and diabetes are also very prevalent in aged people these days.
If all the underlying health problems are managed well, age is never a limiting factor in getting dental implants.
3. Will my implants feel natural?
According to the reviews of our patients over the years, dental implants feel the most natural out of all kinds of dental prostheses. The reason for this is that the implant fuses with your jawbone once it is placed inside it. So, a very strong bond is formed between the two. This process is known as osseointegration.
However, when getting any kind of prosthesis, we always advise our patients to keep in mind that it will take some time for your body to adjust to this change. So, it’s okay if you feel a little different for the first few days.
4. Can I smoke and drink after dental implants?
Smoking and drinking shrink your blood vessels. They prevent the blood vessels from carrying the amount of blood which is needed to provide nutrients and oxygen to the tissues.
An unhealthy environment is thus created which is not conducive to the dental implant. Smoking also causes an increase in bacterial activity by promoting plaque formation.
Therefore, implant patients are advised to refrain from smoking and drinking a few weeks before as well as after the surgery. This will greatly increase the chances of survival for your implant.
5. How many implants do I need?
The number of implants will depend on the number of missing teeth. If you have a single missing tooth, a single implant is placed in its position and covered with a crown.
If there are multiple missing teeth, then depending on the situation, either multiple implants can be placed, or, an implant supported bridge is given.
The third situation is one where all the teeth in one arch are missing. In such a case, implant supported dentures are the way to go. Some of the latest options here are All-on-4, All-on-6 or All-on-8.
Depending on the availability of bone in your mouth and other observations on oral examination, one of these can be selected and performed.
6. Do I need bone grafting?
Bone grafting is a method of augmentation of the bone. An artificial or natural graft is placed in areas of the jawbone that are deficient. It is left to heal for some time, and if the procedure goes as planned, and the graft successfully fuses with the existing bone, a stronger bone structure is achieved. This bone will now be adequate for implant placement.
This procedure is done only in patients who have a deficiency in some area of the jawbone. If you have adequate bone height, width, and strength to stabilize the implant, then you might not need bone grafting. This will become evident on physical examination, x rays, and CT scans.
7. How to take care of implants after surgery?
After implant surgery, the first few weeks are the most important in the healing process. This is the time when the process of osseointegration takes place. In this process, the bone and the implant fuse to each other. For it to happen successfully, the patient will have to maintain the oral health as well as possible.
The basic cleaning routine of brushing twice daily, along with flossing every day should be followed. Care should be taken not to brush too hard in the surgical area.
If you feel a slight swelling (which is normal after surgery), use lukewarm water with some salt in it to rinse your mouth about 3-4 times a day. Do this for about five days to get rid of the swelling.
Your diet also plays a major role in the success of the implant. To boost your immunity, eat fresh fruits, and green vegetables. Consume lots of protein and essential multivitamins. Drink as much water as you can but take care that it’s not too cold or too hot. Refrain from drinking alcohol and smoking.
If you feel any abnormality in this time, feel free to contact your dentist.
8. Will my speech get affected by dental implants?
Speech is a major part of social life. It can make or break your impression on others. Some people tend to have trouble in pronouncing certain words.
Problems like these occur when the dynamics of your teeth, lips, tongue, and mouth on the whole are off. For example, if you have a broken front tooth, the sound ‘f’ might not be as clear as it could be.
Many patients have even reported speech problems with dentures. One of the reasons is that the acrylic plate of the denture covers the roof of the mouth.
So, when a tooth is replaced, all these factors are kept in mind. The dentist places the artificial tooth in such a way that it doesn’t interfere with your speech. Also, an implant doesn’t need a supporting plate on the roof of the mouth.
And in case you already have a speech problem, it will be solved using the appropriate dimensions of your prosthesis.
9. What are Mini Dental Implants?
The difference between the traditional implants and mini implants is mainly that of size. Mini implants are about half the length of the traditional implants. Mini implants can be used in patients who don’t have enough bone to support a traditional denture.
There is no difference in the appearance of the crown that is given over these implants. Also, mini implants don’t require an abutment to be attached over them to receive the crown. They have a ball-like end which directly fits into the crown.
The cost of mini implants is less than that of traditional implants. In the U.S.A., Mini implants cost about $1,000 each. This cost will come down by 60-70% here in Mexico. For the exact cost, please fill out the inquiry form.
10. Will I get a warranty for the dental work?
Our network clinics provide a warranty for all their dental work. Warranties can vary for different treatments. However, this promise is subject to the patient’s health. For example, habits like smoking and alcoholism have shown to cause an increased risk of implant failure.
As of now, we offer a 5-year warranty on implants, provided you promise to take care of your teeth and have a professional dental cleaning at least once a year.
To know the exact details about the warranty, kindly contact your MTC case manager
