Here’s Why You Don’t Need To Be Scared of Dental Implant Surgery

The surgical procedure sure sounds daunting, but it a lot less scary than it seems. Dental implant surgeries are very common in Dentistry, hence dentists are very familiar with the process. However, many people turn away at the thought of getting a dental implant despite needing it because they thought it was a painful procedure. Here are some facts about dental implant surgery you should know.

The Surgery Is Well-Planned Out

Every surgery needs planning. The dentist will make sure he/she knows all the important details. For example, the dentist will obtain X-ray imaging to examine the dental implant position before the surgery, which helps him/her during the surgery. The dentist also assesses your oral health and any conditions, such as whether you have bone loss, which affects the surgical procedure. With our dentists on board, you are in good hands! They will be able to carry out the procedure smoothly and painlessly.

Local Anesthesia

Contrary to popular belief, you won’t feel pain during dental implant surgeries, as you will be put under local anesthesia, which will numb the implant area and surrounding tissue, and keep you conscious at the same time. If that is not enough, you can tell your worries to the dentist, and he/she can administer a sedative or anti-anxiety treatment to calm you nerves before the surgery.

Minimal Post-Surgery Pain And Discomfort

If you’re worrying about what happens after the surgery, you will be relieved to know that the discomfort and pain you be experiencing after is very minimal, credits to today’s advanced implantation surgery techniques and the pre-planning for the surgery. Furthermore, the procedure only causes minor tissue disruption and self-absorbed sutures are used to stitch the incised tissues and gums together.

Dental Implants Are Long Lasting

Dental Implants have a consistent high success rate of 95-98%. As compared to normal dentures, dental implants are very easy to maintain and can last for about 25 - 30 years! They can even last longer if you take good care of them. Thanks to the precise planning before every surgery, minor discomfort during surgery and minimal post-surgery pain, dental implants are usually the preferred and safer choice for tooth replacements. It is definitely worth it to get a dental implant if you have a loose or missing tooth, it will promise you a confident smile for a several years to come, even a lifetime.
