Are Dental Implants Safe
Woodland, CA

Image of a dental implant being assembled at Beautiful Smiles in Woodland, CA. A dentist recommends dental implants for various reasons. If you have a tooth decay problem that keeps on getting worse or a gum infection, your teeth may lose their strength and require a replacement. You may also opt for a dental implant if you have missing teeth. Due to the advancement in dentistry, the dental implant procedure is safe depending on the condition of your gums. Dr. James Yang and James Yang DDS recommend seeking professional assistance before deciding on dental implant procedures.

Risks Involved in Dental Implant Procedures

Generally, dental implant procedures are safe when performed by a certified oral surgeon. Professional dental practices use implant systems approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States. The organization evaluates whether the instrumentation and implant material are safe to use or not.

Since the process can take up to a few months, some patients may face a few complications. We have listed the risks below for your understanding.

•  Surgical complications (oral damage, tissue injuries, bone injuries, nerve damage)
•  Implant complications (loose implant, poor placement, chewing and speaking problems)
•  Gum infections
•  Long healing periods
•  Sensitive tooth
•  Implant cleaning problems

If you notice any of the above issues with your dental implant, you may contact your dentist and schedule an appointment to resolve the problems.

Who Shouldn’t Get Dental Implants?

Although dental implants are ideal for those with missing teeth, a few candidates should avoid opting for the procedure due to the interference of other habits or health problems. We have listed the reasons that may hinder the success of a dental implant procedure below to give you an idea.

•  Excessive smoking may lead to problems when getting a dental implant.
•  Gum disease may lead to the spreading of infection during dental surgeries.
•  Autoimmune diseases and diabetic conditions may limit the possibilities of dental implants in patients.
•  Certain allergy types may interfere with the materials used in dental implant procedures.
•  Calcium deficiency in the body may lead to oral complications when opting for surgery.
•  Patients with osteoporosis may not be a good fit for dental implants.
•  Chemotherapy or radiation therapy patients may not be ideal for dental implants.

Dental Implant FAQs

Here are a few common dental implant FAQs that may help you learn more about the procedure.

Are Dental Implants Safe for Seniors?

Senior patients (over 60 years) may face complications during dental implantation and osseointegration. The healing process may take longer, causing eating complications.

Is Dental Implant Surgery Painful?

Oral surgeons use general or local anesthesia to conduct the surgery. The procedure may cause slight discomfort to the patient. However, it would be best if you took prescribed painkillers to avoid a painful jaw and gums.

Are There Any Alternatives to Dental Implants?

If you are unfit for dental implants, your dentist may recommend dental bridges or dentures as suitable replacements to serve the purpose.
