Dental implants are used to support one or more false teeth. It is a titanium screw that can replace the root of a tooth when it fails and is generally placed into the jawbone.
How safe and effective they are
Dental implants are safe and are just the same as natural teeth in the sense that they will last for as long as you care for them. For example attending regular maintenance appointments will have an impact on how long that they last.
If you don’t look after your dental implants then you can expect them to develop a coating that is similar to what you would find on neglected natural teeth. If this is then untreated then this can lead to gum infection, bleeding, soreness and general discomfort.
If you do look after your dental implants and if the bone that they are fitted to is strong and healthy then you can expect them to last you years and years.
Pain with this treatment
You won’t find any pain when dental implants are being placed because you will be under a simple local anaesthetic however, you may feel some discomfort during the week after the surgery.
