Dental implants are a breakthrough in the dental industry. This technique restores one or more lost teeth, restoring aesthetics and chewing ability to the patient.

1. Who is dental implant for?

Dental implants are a method of restoring lost teeth by implanting a titanium post into the jawbone, then attaching a ceramic crown to the post using an abutment joint. This technique does not affect adjacent teeth like a traditional bridge and has superior chewing ability compared to removable dentures.

Dental implants are suitable for many different people. However, some people need to be more careful when using this method, including:

  • Pregnant women.
  • People are suffering from infection in the tooth loss area.
  • People who have had radiotherapy to the jaw area.
  • People with dangerous chronic diseases such as heart disease and blood pressure.
  • People with uncontrolled diabetes.
  • Heavy drinkers and smokers.

Before having a dental implant, you should go to a reputable dentist to have a doctor examine you and give you detailed advice based on your health condition.

2. Are dental implants safe?

Dental implants are a safe technique, but not absolutely. According to world statistics, this technique still has risks:

  • Implants do not integrate with bone and are rejected by the body: This is the most common risk when having implants, accounting for approximately 5% according to global reported data.
  • Implants open the maxillary sinus, invade and compress the mandibular nerve, causing numbness and paresthesia of the lips, cheeks, and tongue.

However, you don’t need to worry too much. With the development of science and technology, modern technological machines were born, supporting doctors during the treatment process. Typically, Conebeam-CT imaging system, Piezotome ultrasound machine, DTE Implant machine, endodontic treatment machine… Thanks to that, the risk rate is significantly reduced.

But the most important factor is still the doctor’s expertise. To ensure safety, patients should choose a reputable dentist that has been operating for many years and has a doctor with a practicing certificate. The combination of people and technology will bring the best dental implant results.

3. What are the advantages of dental implants?

3.1 Dental implants do not invade real teeth

The implant head is implanted directly into the jawbone, without needing to grind down neighboring teeth like a porcelain bridge. Therefore, dental implants do not invade real teeth at all. Thanks to that, the patient’s real teeth are maximally preserved.

3.2 Dental implants limit jaw bone loss

Bone loss is one of the dangerous complications when a patient loses teeth, affecting the bite, distorting the mouth… reducing aesthetics and chewing ability. Techniques such as porcelain bridges or removable dentures do not limit this complication.

To limit bone loss, patients need dental implants. Titanium posts integrated into the jawbone will prevent this condition, thereby protecting the patient’s health and aesthetics.

3.3 Dental implants have high durability

Dental implants are the most modern tooth restoration technique. The lifespan of an implant can be up to 25 years or longer. As the saying goes, “what lasts depends on the person”, you should follow your doctor’s instructions on diet and dental care to increase the longevity of your implant.

4. How much does dental implant cost?

Talking about cost, this is the disadvantage of dental implants. Because this technique requires highly specialized doctors and modern machinery, the price is not cheap.
Besides, in case the patient is not eligible for a transplant, the doctor will prescribe a number of additional minor surgeries – which directly increase treatment costs:

  • Sinus augmentation: helps increase the volume of the upper jaw bone, meeting enough height, density and volume to perform dental implants.
  • Bone grafting: helps increase bone density in the dental implant area to the required level.

In addition, another barrier to dental implants is the long treatment time, which can be up to 6 months. After permanently attaching the titanium post, the patient must wait for the implant to integrate with the jawbone before installing porcelain teeth. Therefore, if you need urgent tooth restoration, implants are not the optimal choice.
