Losing a tooth can be traumatic and painful if caused by an accident, like falling face first on pavement or biting into food and unexpectedly hitting something hard. Thankfully, you can mend your situation with dental implants. These teeth implants are simply placed into the jawbone, right under your gums.

Dental implants can greatly enhance one’s quality of life and are beneficial for one’s emotional, physical, and social well-being. We debunk the myths and discuss the truth about dental implants so that you can have peace of mind should you ever need to have your smile restored with this inventive and reliable solution. 

Myth #1 – Dental implants are painful

This myth is probably the one you hear about the most. While most people have a hard time feeling comfortable with the idea of someone poking around with needles in their mouth, the reality is that this dental surgery is relatively painless. 

You will only feel minor discomfort when the needle for localized anesthesia is used. You may feel some slight tenderness once the sedative wears off, but it’s nothing a little ibuprofen cannot fix. 

Myth #2 – Dental implants are expensive

The price of dental implants varies considerably based on several factors, including the type of implant system and how many teeth need to be replaced. Dental implants are generally less expensive than most people think, though.

Dental implants are frequently more cost-effective over the long run than alternative aesthetic dentistry treatments like bridges and dentures. Because implants stay longer and require less upkeep over time than other cosmetic solutions, they are more affordable in the long run.

You’re better off going for dental implants because, with proper care, they can last until the end of your life and won’t require replacement, whereas bridges and dentures will always need one.

Myth #3 – Dental implants are dangerous

Every surgery can come with its own set of complications. Thankfully, years of experience have allowed dental surgeons to operate with a 98% success rate, leaving their patients happy with their new set of teeth. 

With dental implants being a common surgery for the last 50 years, you can rest assured that your dental surgeon will know the proper protocols and measures to ensure your health and safety. If you ever run into complications post-surgery, immediately contact your dentist.

Remember, an essential factor in the high success rate involves the patient being equally as responsible and prepping accordingly for the surgery. This means practicing excellent dental hygiene and notifying your dentist of any existing medical issues before and after surgery. 

Myth #4 – Dental implants require a lot of maintenance

The wonderful thing about dental implants is that you won’t have to change the way you care for your teeth. Carry on as usual by brushing your teeth daily, flossing them, rinsing your teeth with mouthwash, and continuing your yearly dental checkups. By maintaining your teeth in this easy, regular fashion, you can expect your implants to last the entirety of your life. 

Myth #5 – Dental implants will not last as long as natural teeth

In order to accurately mimic the appearance, strength, and functionality of a natural tooth, a dental implant fuses with the jaw through osseointegration. They remain the most durable type of tooth restoration. With proper care and regular dental checkups, you can rest assured that your implants will stand the test of time.
