What is Dental Implant Surgery Like?

A quick guide to having a dental implant surgery

If you’re thinking about getting a dental implant then there are a number of things you may be curious or nervous about going into the procedure. Just the thought of surgery, let alone implant surgery, can be very scary. The process of getting a dental implant is fairly straightforward though it is a complicated procedure.

So, what are the steps for dental implant surgery and what will this be like going into the procedure?

One of the ways to replace your missing teeth is to have a dental implant surgery, which is
an involving procedure that's not as complicated as you might have been led to believe.

The Procedure

There are now more options to replace missing teeth than ever before. The particular method of implants is becoming very popular in recent years, particularly as it a presents a semi- permanent solution to what may have been once considered a permanent problem.

If interested, there are plenty of online resources you can find about what dental implants are actually made from also.

How Long Does It Take?

The length of the time it may take you to get a dental implant varies, largely as a result of your personal dental health. Issues which can also slow the process includes the number of teeth needing to be replaced, which teeth will be replaced and even whether or not a tooth will need to be extracted prior to placement.

Such factors will also determine the number of visits that you will need to have for the overall process to be complete. A single implant will take one to two hours, which includes anaesthesia and dressing for a sterile environment.

Is It Painful?

As with any surgery, there is some pain to be found and there can be a level of discomfort following the procedure. However, during the procedure you will need to have either anaesthesia or oral sedation. Most of the time many people do feel less discomfort than they expected. A doctor can help to prescribe specific medications to help with any discomfort.

Prior to Surgery

Before your procedure, your dental implant Warrington professional may have a number of specific instructions for you. But typically, they include things such as:

● You may need to use special antibacterial mouthwash prior to the surgery.

● Preventative antibiotics to ward off infection.

● Keeping an empty stomach 24-hours prior to the surgery (depending on your pain relief options).

● Having someone to bring you and take you from the surgery.

Post-Surgery

Any dental implant at Warrington surgery will be completed in one day. After this, you will likely feel a little bit of bruising and swelling, especially in the gum and tissues. This type of discomfort is usually treated with a painkiller or some other normal over the counter pain relief. If work is an issue, you will be relieved to know that you can often work the next day.

There are a couple of potential post-surgery complications, including:

  • Infection of both the bone and gum in surrounding areas.
  • Your body may reject the implant.
  • Bone loss.
  • The implant may fail to adhere to the bone entirely.

However, on the whole this is entirely unlikely and if you ensure the proper aftercare techniques then it should be avoidable. Here are a few good aftercare techniques.

Maintenance

Just like with natural teeth, your implanted tooth must be cared for and checked on a regular basis. Brush, floss and care for it in just the same way you would a natural tooth. Seeing your dentist or dental hygienist regularly, every six months or so, will also be important in order to ensure the implant is holding.

Overall, implant surgery is neither as complicated nor as daunting a procedure as you might have expected. But, it’s still important to be aware of what you will be experiencing going into the procedure.
