Useful Information for Dental Patients

There are many fears about dental implants; some say it's expensive and long procedure and the results are painful and short-lived. But in fact, most of the fears are just rumors. Let’s overcome those myths about implants:
  • 1.Implants are long and painful procedure
This prejudice is associated with the times when dentists actively installed lamellar implants. It required a rough intervention in the anatomy of the jaw and the patient was getting to normal for several days just like after a real surgical operation. Modern implants are screwed, diamond precision tools are used and the process takes only 10 to 15 minutes (!). Adequate anesthesia makes the implantation painless and the patient is usually not even required to take the painkillers. And in a few hours after the procedure, he returns to normal life. Some clinics even offer a service called "tooth for an hour": during the visit, the bad tooth is removed, replaced with an implant and a temporary crown that will hide the flaw and allow you to fully chew food, smile without embarrassment and avoid dictions defect. After 2-6 months, when the implant is firmly integrated with the bone, the dentist will replace the temporary crown with a permanent one just like your real tooth. By the way, Implants are no differ with natural regarding usual care.
  • 2. Implants are not forever
Implantation really costs more than other methods of prosthetics: but doctors often make positive predictions that the implant will get accustomed. This means that you most likely will not have to go through the procedure of prosthetics for a rest of your life.
  • 3. Implants are about appearance and not about health
This myth causes many people to postpone implantation for decades. Especially when it comes to prosthetics of teeth that not involved in a smiling. Meanwhile, even inconspicuous gaps in the dentition are quite capable of affecting our health and appearance. Thus, the prolonged absence of chewing teeth on one side is accompanied by pain in the joint, which in future can provoke a chronic migraine. The inability to chew food qualitatively, according to doctors, affects the condition of the stomach and can lead to gastritis or obesity. You shouldn’t allow yourself to suffer such pain and deteriorate your health.

Don’t forget that restoring a smile makes patients feel much younger!
