The procedure is meticulously plannedIn reality, a dental implant is a relatively minor dental procedure, because all the placement details are mapped well ahead of time. If the dental situation is complex, the dentist will take an x-ray or a CT scan to identify the correct location for each implant to be placed, including creating a surgical guide that will be helpful during the procedure when making incisions which will create a small channel to hold the implant.
The procedure can also be performed by administering local anaesthesiaImplanting teeth is less stressful than a tooth extraction. If the patient is healthy, the procedure will be a breeze. With a local anaesthetic, our dentist will numb the implant area while you remain conscious. However, if you are feeling anxious or nervous, the dentist can also administer an anti-anxiety medication before undertaking the procedure.
Minimal discomfort post the surgeryBecause the placement details are pre-planned, there is minimal tissue disruption which can be easily fixed with self-absorbing sutures. In certain cases, the patient might need to take stronger pain relievers. However, it is usually mild non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like aspirin or ibuprofen that should curb the patient’s discomfort.
Higher success rateIt usually takes around three to six months for the dental implant to completely heal, and around four to six weeks before the dental crown is attached. Dental implants usually have a success rate of over 95% and can usually last a lifetime. However, it will need to be replaced once every 15 years due to wear and tear.
