Three Reasons Not to Fear Dental Implants

October 5, 2016

Looking for Dental Implants? Some of the best implants Lawrenceville has to offer is at Gwinnett Smiles with Dr. Bruce E Carter!

Over the years, implants have built a favorable reputation for their resemblance to real teeth and the longevity that they provide. Much of this can be attributed to the titanium rod that is implanted in the jawbone. Interesting fact: Titanium has a natural relationship with bone, allowing for new cells to grow and join with the dental implant. This creates a strong and durable connection between the implant and your bone.

Of course, if you are looking to achieve this, implant surgery is required, and like mentioned before, the best implants Lawrenceville has to offer is at Gwinnett Smiles! While the prospect of surgery gives many people doubts before choosing this option, the surgery is fairly routine and causes very little discomfort and in trained hands such as Dr. Bruce Carter, has statistically, a very high success rate.

Below are three reasons why you shouldn’t stress implant surgery:

  1. All procedures are precisely planned out

Typically, these procedures are fairly minor, as all of the details and happenings during the procedure are mapped out before the procedure takes place. If the procedure is complex, x-ray and CT scanning may be utilized to help draw out a personal guide for the patient’s mouth, helping the dentist know exactly where incisions will appear as well as the channels for where the implant will sit.

  1. Anesthesia can be used during surgery

Believe it or not, implant procedures are typically an easier procedure than tooth extractions. If the person undergoing the procedure is of healthy standing, the patient should have no problem undergoing the procedure. Typically a local anesthetic is used for the procedure around the areas that will be affected and the procedure takes place while the patient is conscious. If the patient has anxiety due to being awake and aware during the procedure, dentists may provide sedatives or anti-anxiety medicine to the patient.

  1. There’s little discomfort post procedure

Because of all of the pre procedure work that goes into implants, there is very little disruption of tissue, and any incisions that are stitched with sutures that are self-absorbing. While it varies from case to case, most patients find that aspirin or ibuprofen are adequate for any discomfort post procedure.

Most patients see a very quick healing process post procedure with the success rate being around 97%. When all is said and done, you’ll be ready for many years of full function and a confident smile.
