Dental Implant Frequently Asked Questions

Table of Contents

Throughout the history of civilization, significant value has been seen in the presence of a complete set of teeth, both for functional and aesthetic reasons. Here is a guide with your dental implants questions: what are, how much they cost, if they are safe and why to consider them.

What are dental implants?

The nature of dental implants is purely artificial and their role is restorative, implants being widely considered the best option to solve issues like missing or decaying teeth that need extraction. Here you can find answer to your your dental implants questions.

A dental implant is made of titanium, that serves as a substitute for the root of the tooth. When dental implants are inserted into the jawbone, they bond with your natural bone. 

A connector – known as an abutment – is placed on top of the dental implant to hold and support your crowns.

Why consider dental implants as your tooth replacement option?

Implant dentistry has been around for decades. You should consider dental implants as an option in order to stop your teeth from shifting into the empty space and conserve your jawbone. 

The longer you wait to get dental implants, the more likely it is that your jawbone may lack the integrity to get implants in the future without a dental bone graft.

In fact, dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves natural bone, actually helping to stimulate bone growth.

What about the cost of this procedure?

The simple answer is this: it depends. Due to the high dental treatment costs available in Western Europe, oral health can easily take second place when it comes to priorities. 

 Eastern European countries, however, are quite promising and extremely affordable when it comes to dental implant costs. While UK dental treatment prices start from £1,800, quotes from dental clinics in Romania range between £500 – £800. 

Nevertheless, dental implants are the most cost-effective option when viewed as a long-term investment in your health, comfort and well-being.

How do you care for dental implants?

Good oral hygiene must take place before, during, and after placement of dental implants to ensure the health of the implant. 

They require exactly the same care as natural teeth: daily brushing and flossing, along with regular dental checkups and professional cleanings. 

Although implant teeth will never decay, the gum tissues around them can become inflamed or infected in the absence of good oral hygiene. Properly cared-for dental implants should last a lifetime.

Maintaining a good general health of the oral cavity and avoiding damaging habits, such as tobacco and caffeine, could help the dental implant to last up to 25 years or more.

Are dental implants safe?

At this point in time and science, dental implants are considered to be the most advanced solution for missing teeth with a long-term success rate of up to 97% in some dental practices.

However, you should understand that dental implants are a complex surgical procedure, and there can be risks and complications as well. It’s always best to review your health history with your dentist.

In conclusion

Long story short, dental implants are the only dental restoration option that preserves natural bone, actually helping to stimulate bone growth. With a success rate of up to 97% in some dental practices, it’s important to understand that dental implants are a complex surgical procedure.

Keep in mind, the ideal candidate for a dental implant is in good general and oral health. Here you can find some simple tips to brush and floss the right way, in order to maintain your oral hygiene.
