Dental Implants: Myths & Facts

Dental Implants are great options for people who have one or more missing teeth. Getting dental implants can improve your chewing and speech function. However, people are afraid of getting a tooth implant due to certain myths. It’s because people are not aware of the facts associated with dental implants.

Here are some facts that debunking the myths associated with tooth implant:

Myth: Getting dental implants is painful.

Fact: While performing the surgery your doctor will give you anesthesia to numb your teeth and gums. Dental implants are not as painful as you may think despite the fact that it is a surgical procedure. However, you’ll feel a slight pressure at the site of the procedure but not pain.

Myth: Dental implants are extremely expensive.

Fact: You may feel that false teeth are better than a dental implant. But not getting dental implants can cause more damage. So, it’s actually a one-time investment that will save you from paying for other dental problems.

Myth: Tooth implant comes with long-term risks.

Fact: The procedure requires surgery. This means you may have to face minor risks like swollen gums, infection at surgical site etc. But this will happen only if you don’t take antibiotics or other medicines prescribed by your dentist. The whole purpose of those post-treatment medications is to prevent infections. So, yes there are minor risks involved but they are not long term.

Myth: Dental implants surgery takes a long time to heal.

Fact: No. Dental implants surgery does not take a long time to heal, especially with the medicines prescribed by your dentist. The general time frame for recovery is up to 6 months depending on the patient to patient. But if you take your medicines regularly and follow a good oral hygiene routine then you may heal in less than 6 months.

Myth: Tooth implant is prone to failure.

Fact: The rate of dental implant failure is very low. Dental implants are made from biocompatible titanium which means your body will not reject them. Dental implants are safe. The only way your surgery may fail is if you visit an unprofessional for your treatment.

Myth: Dental implants require special care and maintenance.

Fact: Dental implants do not require special cleaning and maintenance. You simply need to maintain good oral hygiene. You can treat your dental implant like natural teeth. Simply brushing and flossing your teeth will keep them clean.

Myth: Dental implants are visible.

Fact: Dental implants look like natural teeth. This means your dental implant will not stand as an odd one out amongst your natural teeth. No one will notice your tooth implant unless you tell someone about it.

I would recommend Dr. Kathuria's Dental Clinic to anyone living in, or visiting Delhi. Very good and professional customer service, very competent dentists and staff. Received zoom whitening and two large fillings from Dr Sween, very happy with the results.

The time I provided for the dental implants was not only restricted to a number of days but it was also confined to the needs of my travel schedules. Dr. Kathuria went out of his work schedule to help me! I was uncertain and stressed out about the whole procedure but Dr. Puneet Kathuria's reassurances saved me from the nightmarish thoughts of dental-work disasters. Two months post dental implants, I have not experienced a single problem with the implants. Today, I have found back the confidence to laugh. Thank you Dr. Kathuria! Jai Bharat! Jai Dr. Puneet Kathuria!
