If you are about to go through any surgical procedure, complete knowledge and awareness of what lies ahead and what is at stake are important. Just like any other surgery, dental implant is not done in one simple sitting.
It is a surgery that could take months to heal in exchange to having them for a lifetime. Although considered rare, there are minor risks that patients should be well advised before undergoing an implant surgery.
Infection Can Happen
Infections in the surgical area could happen if the procedure is not done properly or if a reaction from the patient occurs.
That is why it is most crucial to check the overall health condition of the patient to make sure the body is ready to accept medications and treatment to help minimize the overall risks associated with the surgery.
You Will Feel Pain or Numbness
As you go through the process, damaging the nerve could also become a risk. This could result to tingling pain and numbness around the implant.
Preplanning and preparations are made to make sure that this will not happen. With a 97 percent success rate, it could only mean that if it ever happens, any pain or discomfort can be treated quickly.
The artificial tooth is designed so that it does not feel any different from the rest of the teeth. With a complex procedure not done perfectly, the worst you could expect is a loose or unstable implant. When this happens, an immediate realignment should be done.
Dental implants should be treated with utmost care just like how you do with your natural teeth and should only be done by highly experienced dental professionals in order to prevent issues that are mentioned above from happening.
