Dental implants are commonly recommended for patients that have had dentures for some time. The procedure, as you’d also find out in this video it’s not as painful as most people perceive it to be.
The process can be completed with mild pain relievers, and the patient can resume their normal life within 24 hours.
Dental implants can either be removable or fixed appliances, and there are small and larger diameter implants. Small diameter implants are used in patients with thin ridges or those with lost bone.
The process involves drilling adapter implants into the jaw bone, fitting the crown screw, and attaching the crown. After the implant is fixed, it doesn’t need to be changed because it can last a lifetime. The most common dental implants that go into the root section of the tooth are known as industrial implants.
Finally, the process is less inversive, so it is not as painful as tooth removal. Therefore, do not shy off from the process and eliminate discomfort and embarrassing moments from using dentures.
