I'm not a fan of dentists.. In fact I squirm at the word dentist.That's why I advice people to take their oral hygiene serious.. Like brushing twice a day,flossing and stuffs like that.
If you are considering dental implant,its always necessary to weigh your personal goals and needs,consider the risks and benefits of this procedure because dental implants do carry some degree of risk.The good news is if the implant is done by a skilled and qualified professional, the risk is reduced.
Common risk associated with dental implant include:
- Excessive bleeding
- Discomfort or pain
- Improper placement which can lead to implant failure
- Puncture of the sinus cavity
- Damage to blood vessels and nerves
- Bacterial Infection
It must be noted that patients must have sufficient amount of bone tissue in order to provide adequate support for the implants.If an implant is placed in a soft jaw or too thin jaw,implant may not be successful.Bone Grafting is recommended to build the strength of the jaw.
Let me just say that while patients understand the risk involved in this procedure,they should also understand the long lasting benefits too so as to weigh their options.
I won't dive into the benefits because the writer didn't ask for the benefits
