Are Dental Implants Safe?

Missing teeth? You’re not alone. Thankfully, dental implants offer a revolutionary solution, replacing tooth roots with biocompatible metal posts and crowning them with natural-looking artificial teeth. At Barrhaven Dental Studio, we proudly offer dental implants as a superior alternative to dentures, especially when natural tooth roots are absent.

But are dental implants safe? Like any procedure, risks exist, but they’re rare and often manageable:

  • Sinus Issues: Upper jaw implants might, in rare cases, protrude into the sinus cavity.
  • Structural Damage: Surrounding teeth, nerves, or blood vessels might be unintentionally affected.
  • Nerve Damage: Temporary numbness or tingling in teeth, gums, lips, or chin can occur.
  • Infection: Implant sites, like any surgical area, carry a small risk of infection.

The good news? Dental implants boast a phenomenal 95% success rate. And the advantages are undeniable:

  • Natural Appearance and Feel: Say goodbye to unnatural-looking dentures! Implants function and look just like your real teeth.
  • Crystal-Clear Speech: No more worrying about slipping dentures or slurred speech. Talk confidently with dental implants.
  • Unwavering Comfort: No more chafing or discomfort associated with dentures. Implants feel just like your natural teeth.
  • Enhanced Oral Health: Unlike bridges, implants won’t require altering surrounding teeth. They also prevent bone deterioration and stimulate healthy bone growth.

The Dental Implant Journey in Barrhaven:

  1. Consultation and Planning: A thorough examination and personalized treatment plan are your first steps at Barrhaven Dental Studio.
  2. Implant Placement: Our skilled dentists strategically place the implant, your new tooth’s foundation.
  3. Integration Period: Allow 2-3 months for the implant to seamlessly integrate with your bone tissue.
  4. Abutment Placement: A small connector, called an abutment, is attached to the implant.
  5. Custom Crown or Bridge Creation: Precise impressions are taken to create a natural-looking crown for a single tooth or a bridge/denture for multiple missing teeth.
  6. Finalization: Your custom restoration is securely attached to the implant(s), completing your beautiful new smile!
