Is the dental implant procedure painful?
Suprisingly no! While each patient is different and responds differently to treatment, many patients have reported little, if any discomfort after dental implant procedures.
If you have a missing tooth, an implant is a way to replace that tooth. To receive an implant, you have a metal post surgically placed in your jaw, and then a false tooth is made to fit over the post. The end result is the closest thing that man can do to mimic a tooth and its natural root.
When a tooth is near the front of the mouth, there are cosmetic issues that need to be addressed, Getting the end result to look like a real tooth is a monumental challenge. The teeth next to the implant tooth will have complex color gradients that need to be matched in the false tooth. The special attention to the placement of the implant post so that the false tooth has the correct inclination in your mouth.
The other typical way to replace your missing tooth is with a bridge. A bridge suspends the missing tooth between the teeth on either side. Or, the tooth or teeth may be replaced with a removable appliance.
The main advantage of an implant is that nothing has to be done to the teeth on either side. If they are healthy, they can be left untreated, whereas the placement of a bridge may require those teeth to have crowns placed on them.
The modern solution for all missing teeth.
If you have lost all your teeth, unsecured, traditional dentures are a solution which in many cases has limited success. At times painful, inconvenient and instable, such dentures can make chewing foods difficult, which could stop you from eating many of the foods you once enjoyed.
