Are There Drawbacks to Dental Implants?

Dental implants have been called one of the most important steps forward in the history of modern dentistry, and we are proud to make them available to our patients at The Hills Dental Spa in Austin TX.

Dental implants as we know them today have been around for decades, but they’re one of those things that most people to learn about until they need one. When they do, certain questions crop up pretty consistently:

  • Are dental implant procedures too expensive?
  • Are implants safe?
  • Are they experimental?
  • Is the surgery painful?
  • Does it take a long time to recover?

The answer to all of these is short and sweet: No. Dental implants are an investment in a better quality of life

They might not be cheap. But, when it comes to a permanent addition to your mouth, why would you want it to be? Plus, you gain so much more than a titanium post and porcelain crown or denture.

You regain the ability to chew steak and raw vegetables. You gain self confidence. You preserve the shape of your face. You prevent your teeth from shifting after an extraction. You avoid embarrassing dentures slipping around in your mouth.

Permanent dental implants are a safe, mainstream dental procedure and they are definitely worth it! The cost of not doing anything could be far worse.

In healthy patients who are good candidates for the procedure, implants have a success rate around 98%. If you get a permanent dental implant, it could last the rest of your life!

Something else to note is that dental implant surgery involves very little pain and patients usually recover swiftly.

The procedure doesn’t usually take very long, though it depends on how many implants you’re getting. When it’s finished you may experience:

  • Minimal pain at the implant site
  • Minimal bleeding
  • Swelling and/or bruising of the gums and cheeks

These effects should subside after a few days. Ibuprofen and ice packs usually take care of the pain. Our team will provide you with specific care instructions when you leave the office, in order to ensure your implant’s longevity.
