Are There Drawbacks to Dental Implants?

  • Are dental implant procedures too expensive?
  • Are dental implants unsafe?
  • Are dental implants experimental?
  • Is the surgery painful?
  • Does it take a long time to recover?

The answer to all of these is No.

Let’s talk about it.

Dental implants are an investment in a better lifestyle

Dental implants aren’t cheap. We understand that. But you get so much more than a titanium post and porcelain crown or denture.

You get the capacity to chew steak and raw vegetables. You gain self-confidence. You preserve the shape of your face. You prevent your teeth from shifting after an extraction. You avoid embarrassing dentures slipping around in your mouth.

Dental implants are a safe, mainstream dental procedure

In healthy patients who are good candidates for the treatment, tooth implants have a success rate of around 98%. They have been used for decades.

Are you considering getting a permanent dental implant? At Pence Family Dentistry, we only recommend surgery for people who are good candidates. This helps us maintain a nearly 100% success rate.

According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry, 3 million Americans have received implants.

If you get a tooth implant this year, it could last the rest of your life.

Dental implant surgery has very little pain and patients usually recover quickly

Our dental implant patients are often surprised after they get their implant placed.

“Wow! That was no more painful than a filling.”

“Are you finished already? I didn’t even feel it.”

“That was oral surgery? It only took a few minutes.”

After dental implant surgery, you may experience:

  • Minimal pain at the implant site
  • Minimal bleeding
  • Swelling and/or bruising of the gums and cheeks

These effects should subside after a few days. Ibuprofen usually takes care of the pain. Ice packs used on the outside of the face can assuage swelling. Call our office if these symptoms persist.

At Pence Family Dentistry, we want to share trustworthy information about dental implants. There are too many myths floating around. It’s sad that incorrect information can prevent men and women with missing teeth from improving their lives with implants.

If you have questions about dental implant procedures, get your answers from an expert. Dr. Pence has been providing the highest quality dental service since 1985.
