Don't Allow Anxiety to Stop You from Getting Dental Implants!

If you are looking to get dental implants, you might be worried that the process might be painful or that it might be a complicated process. The good news is that getting a dental implant is a straightforward process that will give you life-long results. A professional dentist will take you through the three stages namely the initial consultation and assessment, the process of fitting the implant and crown, and the final process of post-surgery care. Here are the reasons why you should not let anxiety rob you of this great treatment.

It is Painless

When undergoing dental implant treatment, you need not worry about the pain. This is because your dentist will apply a local anesthetic to numb any pain that you may feel in the area. After the surgery, you will also get painkillers to suppress the pain. There might be some discomfort during the recovery period, but your dentist will teach you how to take care of your implants to minimize the discomfort and to ensure quick healing.

It Could Transform Your Life

Improving your smile through a dental implant often have life-transforming results. Missing teeth not only affect how we look but has an impact on many other things. For example, missing teeth create the impression of sunken cheeks and make you look much older than you really are. Missing teeth also affect chewing, breathing, and speech. Installing dental implants can easily correct all these faults and boost one's confidence levels.

Prevent Future Problems

When a tooth is lost, jawbone mass in the area where the tooth may begin to deteriorate. This is because it is no longer being stimulated by the chewing process. This loss of jawbone makes it harder, perhaps even impossible to get an implant further down the road should you wish to get one. The implant is supposed to fuse to the jawbone and if there's insufficient bone mass, then this fusion is not possible. By getting implants, you are able to save your bone mass from further loss.

Protects Remaining Teeth

When a tooth is lost, the rest of the teeth have to absorb the extra strain when chewing. This happens in the context of not having the same structural support as before. To make it worse, your teeth might try to compensate for the missing tooth by shifting to fill the gap. This leads to crooked teeth which makes your smile even worse. When you have a dental implant in place, you need not worry about such things. The implant takes up the slack and allows you to chew normally. This results in healthy and straight teeth.
