Are dental implants safe? We get asked this a lot.

Are dental implants safe? In recent years, dental implants have become one of the most popular solutions for restoring missing teeth, as well as offering an alternative to traditional dentures.

As with any dental treatment, it is natural to have questions – like whether or not dental implants are safe. In this article, we take a closer look at the facts.

Let’s talk about what a dental implant is.

Dental implants essentially function as a replacement for the natural roots of teeth that are missing or have become too damaged to support crowns or bridges. Dental implants are used as a permanent foundation to hold natural looking replacement teeth, from a single tooth to a complete arch.

What are dental implants made of and is it safe?

Dental implants are typically made of titanium, a material that is chosen because it has the unique quality of being biocompatible. When properly fitted by an experienced dentist, these replacement roots are as effective and secure as the natural roots they have replaced and pose absolutely no risk to the patient. Our practice use a world leading Swiss system that offers superior results.

I’m worried about the risks of dental implant surgery.

An experienced specialist will conduct Dental implant surgery. Dr Hani Namih has spent years developing our very special painless dentistry approach. As a result, the vast majority of patients will experience from minimal discomfort to nothing at all .

I’ve read dental implants can cause gum disease?

Gum disease from dental implants can cause damage to the gums and bone. To make sure this is never a problem, your implant specialist here at Stella Maris will always examine your mouth thoroughly for any signs of gum disease before your implant treatment begins.

Lifestyle factors

Another key risk area is lifestyle factors such as smoking or excessive drinking. Your dentist will discuss any specific concerns with you prior to treatment.

Finally, choosing a trusted dentist means you can be sure of the provenance of your implants.
