Threats of Infection

Dental implants are no exception to the possibility of postoperative infection. This is a low risk if the postoperative care instructions of your dental surgeon are followed and good dental hygiene is maintained.

Inflammation and Bleeding

Swelling and bleeding after implant surgery are common side effects that subside in several days. However, contact your dentist immediately if any abnormal swelling or bleeding is observed.

Taking Control of Discomforts

When getting implants, it is expected to feel some soreness or pain at the location. Most patients find the pain to be manageable and short-lived, and dentists often recommend pain medication to help with this.

Nerve Injury

It is unlikely but possible. Nerve damage during implantation could lead to tingling or numbness in the chin, lips, gums, or teeth.

Problems With the Sinuses

Concerns about the sinuses can arise with upper jaw implants, mainly if the implant impedes into the sinus region. This danger will be minimized by having your dentist assess the placement of your sinuses before the surgery.

The Occurrence of Implant Failure

The success of the implant can be impacted by factors such as bone quality, infection, or applying too much pressure too soon. The integration of the implant with the jawbone can only be monitored with regular follow-up visits.

Infection of Neighboring Regions

Another reason to choose a qualified oral surgeon is the slight chance of harm to neighboring teeth or blood vessels while the implant process is underway. Titanium is also used in implants, and the chances of allergic reaction to titanium in such a case are minimal.

Before deciding whether to have dental implants or not, it is recommended that you see our dentist for more information about these dangers. Dental implants offer a long-term solution to missing teeth when maintained correctly.
