Are There Drawbacks to Dental Implants?

Dental implants might sound like some futuristic solution to missing teeth. But they’ve become part of mainstream dentistry, and are available at Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno.

Most patients have a lot of questions about dental implants, once they seriously begin to consider them. Are there any drawbacks to implants? Are they safe? Experimental? Painful?

Like we said, they are considered mainstream. Dental implants as we know them today have been around for decades. Humans have actually been tinkering with permanent replacement teeth for thousands of years. Modern implants were made possible by the discovery that titanium fuses with bone. Once that happens, the implant provides a rock-solid support for one or more replacement teeth.

As for safety, dental implants have a success rate greater than ninety percent. Cases of rejection are rare. Future generations of implants are expected to be even better.

The majority of patients report being comfortable during the implant procedure itself. It involves minor surgery, though, and mild discomfort afterward is common. We can prescribe medication to manage it.

Most patients are delighted and amazed by their dental implants from Mirelez Wellness Dental. People from Medera, Selma, and Oakhurst are enjoying restored chewing ability and improved smiles. We also offer cosmetic dentistry. Request an appointment today!
