Are Dental Implants Safe?

Dental implants at Oasis Smile Dental in NE Calgary are a fantastic solution to repair your smile permanently. However, because implants need surgery, you may be concerned about their safety. Do you have to be concerned about any significant problems or other safety concerns when you obtain implants?

For all good candidates, dental implants are completely safe.

How safe are dental implants? Yes, this method has been successfully utilized in dentistry for over 30 years and is considered quite safe. There is essentially no chance of serious issues or problems with the dental implant operation for the majority of individuals who are in good health. However, before receiving dental implants, you must be good oral health. If you have advanced periodontal (gum) disease, you will not be eligible for implants until you can acquire the treatment you need to manage and stop the illness’s progression. Dental implants: how safe and effective are they? According to one study, 90-95 percent of implants remained in perfect condition 10 years after implantation, and other studies estimate a success rate of 95-98 percent over a 40-50-year span.

Dental implant complications are very rare.

Dental implants are quite safe, especially when done by Oasis Smile Dental’s professional implant dentists in Calgary. However, some issues can arise in certain situations and should be aware. Peri-implantitis, or gum tissue infection near the implant, is the most prevalent consequence. It can happen if the implant site is not thoroughly cleaned during the process or if the patient does not properly clean and care for their implant after surgery. As a result, engaging with a competent NE Calgary dentist for an implant and following your post-operative recovery instructions will nearly entirely reduce the possibility of this issue. Rarely the implant may fail to adhere to the bone properly. This is more likely in individuals who have a deficient jaw bone. Thus good pre-implant planning and operations, such as bone grafting to strengthen the jaw, can help avoid this problem. Implant rejection is another concern. This problem, also known as “foreign body rejection,” occurs when the implant causes an immune system or an allergic reaction.
