Three things to know about implants from our Oakville dental practice
posted by Burloak Centre Dentistry
Implants are known for being healthy, comfortable, and long-lasting. Many patients say their new teeth feel and look so natural, it would be easy to forget they are actually implant restorations. Although this procedure is in high demand at our Oakville dental practice, most people have some questions.
Once you have a new smile, you want it to last. Restorations such as standard bridges and dentures typically need replacing after a period of time. However, implants are designed to replicate the function of tooth roots. They fuse with the jawbone, creating a bond that can be permanent. If you maintain good oral health, your new implant supported restorations could last for the rest of your life.
You may have heard stories about implant failure. While it does happen in a very small percentage of cases, it is extremely rare. The success rate of implant treatment is well over 90 percent. Various studies have concluded exact rates are usually between 95 and 99 percent successful.
Of course, when you hear the term "oral surgery" you are going to wonder about pain. Not to worry, local anesthetic is sufficient to completely numb the treatment site, ensuring your comfort.
