Is the Dental Implant Procedure Painful?

 

Our team of specialists works to make the process as painless as possible. Dr. Choi administers anesthesia before performing the procedure. In the days immediately following the procedure, you can manage any discomfort with over-the-counter medication and ice packs.

 

How Long is the Recovery Process?

 

Recovery time varies according to where you are in the procedure, as implants typically require at least three visits. When you receive the implant, you may also require a bone graft or sinus lift and tooth extraction during the same visit.

 

The recovery period for each step in the procedure lasts a few days. During this time, your Dr. Choi may prescribe an antibiotic to guard against infection. Ice packs and over-the-counter pain medication help you control swelling, bruising, and discomfort. In addition, you’ll keep the area clean by gargling several times each day with a mixture of warm water and salt.

 

 

Are Dental Implants Dangerous?

 

No, dental implants have proven safe and effective for over three decades. The implant is made of a biocompatible material, usually titanium, because it integrates with your jawbone (called osseointegration) and creates a solid foundation for the prosthetic teeth. It is strong, secure, and even improves jawbone health.

 

What Happens if I Don’t Get Dental Implants?

 

Tooth loss causes the tissue in your jawbone to deteriorate. As this happens, the shape of your face changes, resulting in a sunken appearance, which typically makes you look older than you are. Of course, missing teeth exacerbate this appearance.

 

Dental implants help stimulate your jawbone, halting that shrinkage and improving your appearance.

Dental Implants Grand Prairie, TX

There has been a huge surge of interest in dental implants in Grand Prairie, TX in recent years. News has been spreading among the Grand Prairie community about the benefits of the advanced procedure and the amazing results it provides.

As a result of this, dental surgeons in Grand Prairie have never been implanting more dental implants than they are now.

We know that many Grand Prairie residents (and Texans across the whole state) have many questions they would like answered about dental implants. It’s a mysterious procedure that produces incredible results, but it’s also obviously quite invasive too.

Today we are going to answer some of the most common questions we get asked about dental implants. We hope to give the Grand Prairie community the information they need about dental implants to make an informed decision if tooth loss strikes.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are made up of three parts. The first part is a small titanium screw-like device called the implant. The implant is implanted directly into a patient’s jaw bone to provide extreme stability. Once healed the implant fuses with the bone to create a single continuous, strong base for a replacement tooth.

On top of the implant is a small plate that is called the abutment. The abutment's job is important, as it helps secure the replacement tooth to the implant securely.

The final section of a dental implant is obviously the replacement tooth itself. Your dentist will take several mouth and bite molds and send them off to a dental lab. At the lab, a team of highly skilled professionals will custom make you a replacement tooth based upon the molds your dentist took. This ensures a 100% perfect fit. The replacement tooth will also be colored to match the coloration of your existing teeth to further improve appearance.

Once ready, the tooth is attached to the abutment (which is attached to the implant) and the procedure is finished. It is often impossible to tell (even under close inspection) that a dental implant is not a real tooth. They are impossibly realistic, and most patients are simply stunned by how good their dental implants look.

What are the Alternative Options?

The main alternative option that people are given as a choice when dental implants are suggested is dental bridges.

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap caused by tooth loss by securing a single piece (called the bridge) to two healthy teeth. These two teeth support the stress that would be placed on the missing tooth. To get a secure fit the two healthy supporting teeth need to be drilled down, removing all the protective enamel on the outside.

Dental bridges only last 10 years before they need to be replaced, and this is where the issues with the treatment option start. Bacteria can get underneath the bridge when the sealant starts to degrade. This then attacks the vulnerable dentin core of the previously healthy tooth that was exposed during the drilling.

In some cases, this can render the tooth too weak to support a replacement bridge. If this happens the next adjacent healthy tooth needs to be drilled down. It will then support a bridge over the original gap, and the original previously healthy tooth. This can be a cyclic event and can result in several healthy teeth being drilled down over the years. Obviously, this is not an ideal situation.

Are Dental Implants Expensive?

There is no denying that for many Grand Prairie residents, dental implants will probably be the most expensive dental procedure they have ever needed. Despite this, advances in technology are constantly bringing the price of the treatment down. Costs are already much lower than people initially expect.

However, when discussing the costs of dental implants we feel it is always best to look in the long term and compare them to the alternative. Because of bridges only last around 10 years on average it's possible that 3, 4, or even 5 replacement bridges will be needed over a lifetime. When you add up these costs over the years, they can often end up amounting to a much greater amount than the initial investment would have been in a dental implant.

There is no getting around the fact that dental implants are not cheap initially, but they literally last a lifetime. They are a long-term investment that can make very strong fiscal sense when you sit down and do the long term math.

Who Is The Best Dental Surgeon in Grand Prairie, TX For Dental Implants?

We obviously think that Dr. Choi is the best dental surgeon in Grand Prairie for dental implants. However, we don’t expect you to take our word for it. Here are a few questions that you should ask yourself about any dental surgeon in Grand Prairie that could potentially be implanting tooth implants for you.

Are They a Board-Certified Surgeon?

Board-certified dental surgeons represent the pinnacle of dental surgeons in the United States. Their rigorous application and admission procedures ensure that only dental surgeons of the highest caliber are able to be board certified. It’s almost like the litmus test of excellence in the dental world. Ask any dental surgeon you are considering putting your trust in if they are board certified. As you might have guessed already, Dr. Choi is a board-certified dental surgeon.

Are They Experienced?

This is one of the things that many people often overlook when choosing a dental surgeon in Grand Prairie for dental implants. All dental surgeons that are legally allowed to offer dental implants will have undergone rigorous training.

However, there is a huge amount of difference in skill and experience between the many dental surgeons in the Grand Prairie area. Some dental surgeries in our community are staffed with extremely qualified and experienced dentists, and some others are not.

When it comes to dental implants it’s imperative you pick a dental surgeon that has extensive experience. This is mainly due to the discomfort that can be felt during the procedure. Any dental surgeon will adequately numb your mouth to ensure no pain is felt throughout the procedure. But discomfort is inevitable, and this is where the difference is most noticeable.

There is a lot of drilling, pushing, pulling, pressure, and vibrating going on throughout the procedure. This is inevitable due to the invasive nature of what is taking place. However, the best and most experienced dentists can minimize the discomfort felt during this part of the process drastically. They know exactly what needs to be done, they know how to do it, and they get it done accurately and efficiently.

There are many excellent, experienced dental surgeons that provide dental implants in Grand Prairie. Finding an experienced surgeon is something you should do your very best to research properly. Ask any dental surgeon how many dental implants they have provided for members of the Grand Prairie community before committing to them.

Dr. Choi has extensive experience in helping countless Grand Prairie residents with dental implants. His procedures are streamlined, efficient, accurate, and they are as comfortable as they can possibly be.

Are They Respected in The Grand Prairie Community?

Luckily, most (or all) of the dentists in the Grand Prairie community are upstanding members of society. However, there are several anecdotal scare stories from across Texas (and the country) that we feel patients should be made aware of.

Patients should be able to trust their dentists to provide them with impartial advice about their current situation, based on their best interests. In the overwhelming majority of cases, this is what respectable dentists do. However, there are a few dentists out there who are putting profit before patients, especially when it comes to dental implants.

There are many anecdotal reports of dental surgeons recommending that patients get several healthy teeth removed when getting dental implants (when there is no medical reason for doing so). They are purely motivated by financial incentives, and patients are being exposed to unneeded discomfort and cost by these despicable dental surgeons.

We hasten to add here that on occasion there are times when removing healthy teeth is a viable option. Not every dentist who recommends healthy extractions is putting profit before their patients. But some do.

Needless to say, Dr. Choi and his team detest this disgraceful practice. Dr. Choi (and many other excellent dental surgeons in Grand Prairie) believe that a dentist’s only concern should be their patient’s well-being. Dr. Choi will never recommend any treatment option that is not 100% in the best interests of his patients.

Conclusion

So there you have it. Some of the most common questions about dental implants that Grand Prairie residents have asked us at the North Texas Dental Surgery over the years.

If you or your family need more information on dental implants, why not give Dr. Choi and his team a call. Contact them at 214.412.2595 for a quick chat about they can help you have one of the best smiles in all of Grand Prairie, TX.
