Dental implants are one of the most popular ways to restore a smile that currently has missing teeth. Dental implants are life-like, and they are a permanent solution for patients with missing teeth. Dental implants typically include the use of a titanium screw embedded into the jaw bone, where it will bond with the bone. The dental implant makes a strong connection, and functions as a traditional tooth. For dental implants to be embedded in the jaw, you will need to have minor dental surgery. The term surgery worries some people, and you may feel nervous about the procedure. It is important to know that dental implant surgery is a routine undertaking and offers little discomfort. Here are 3 reasons why you shouldn’t stress about dental implant surgery:
You Are In Good Hands
Dream Dental Implant Center has trained doctors specializing in dental implants. We understand how to precisely plan each dental implant treatment to ensure a successful outcome. Before you even come in for your surgery, our team has carefully mapped out your mouth to determine the best positioning for the dental implant. Our modern technology allows us to check on the implant during the procedure to ensure it is placed properly.
Your Comfort is Key
We always take our patients comfort level into consideration during treatments. We want to be sure that our patients are comfortable during surgery so we do use local anesthesia and nitrous oxide. If you are healthy enough for the surgery, you will not have any issues during the procedure. If you have health conditions that may make treatment challenging (anxiety), please tell our office in advance as we may need to provide you with a sedative or anti-anxiety medication before we can start the surgery.
There is Limited Discomfort
We work hard during the planning stage to ensure a successful outcome, so there is little discomfort during and after the treatment. The incised tissues will be stitched with self-absorbing sutures, preventing the need to come into our office for suture removal. We will provide pain relievers following surgery to ensure patients are able to function without pain. In most cases, ibuprofen is sufficient to deal with the limited pain post-surgery.
A dental implant will heal fairly quickly an has a high success rate. Within a few weeks after surgery, we will bring you back to our Salt Lake dental implant center to check on your implant. Contact Dream Dental Implant Center to discuss your dental implant needs.
