Not everything you’ve ever believed about dental implants is true. Here are eight myths your dentist is ready to debunk.
Your health or dental insurance may cover more than you think. The dental implant specialist can also help you schedule comfortable payment installments. A permanent dental implant can actually be cheaper than other dental solutions that need replacement over time.
You’ll be completely numb during the surgery and you can even opt for sedation to doze your way through it. Implant placement is usually quicker and easier than most people think.
The main thing is to stay away from cigarettes just long enough for your implant to heal after surgery, since smoking slows down the healing process.
There are shorter “mini” implants that can make the most of limited bone. New technology allows implant specialists to carefully plan a challenging surgery. Finally, you may qualify for bone grafting.
Dental implants are so natural-looking that no one would ever know you had one.
Just because they’re a valuable investment doesn’t mean implants are hard to care for. You gently brush and floss them like your other teeth and schedule regular dental checkups. That’s all!
Not all dentists have equal experience in placing implants. Do your research and choose an implant specialist or seasoned dentist who has a solid track record of successful implant procedures.
Implants are one of the most predictable and successful procedures in dentistry.
