How long do dental implants last?

Implants can last as long as natural teeth, as long as the patient has a good oral hygiene and has his periodical dental appointments for prophylaxis and check-ups

Does implant surgery is painful?

This is a very common question we receive from our patients prior to any surgery and with quiet confidence the answer is no.The Majority of Implant procedures performed at Dentaris have patients noting little pain with only slight discomfort and tenderness as signs of the completed procedures having been done, medications will be prescribed before or after the Implants are placed. Due to the use of Virtual Surgery and the skill of the Clinicians the treatments are precise and heal quicker. Most patients go about their day as normal, but following our post operative instructions.

After Care Instructions

Our staff will present you with a leaflet that informs a patient who has just had surgery the best ways to care and look after their new Smile and or surgical areas for the following weeks. It goes without saying that a rigorous oral hygiene plan has be put into place and followed. As well as advice on the best diets and food types to eat during the healing period to give you the very best chance of recovering quicker. There will also be a list of the certain habits and activities that should be avoided, up to and including Physical excerscise, smoking, heavy drinking, all of which can be detrimental to the success of the Implants and treatments in general. If there are any medications prescribed by the doctors they must be (in cases of Antibiotics, be followed as instructed.) Pain is not something a patient normally associates ith these types of treatments but a little discomfort can be treated with anti inflammatories.

What is the Success Rate of Dental Implants?

Here at Dentaris we enjoy extremely high success rates when treating single and multiple dental implants. The reason that most Dental Implants can fail (in any clinic) are due to a patients lifestyle choices. If a patient does not follow the list of recommendations given by the specialists after Implants are placed the chances of failure can dramaticaly rise.

E.G. Smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, recreational drug use and not following the antibiotics (if prescribed.) What it basicaly comes down to is how commited a patient is to the success of their treatments. We will provide the very best tools and doctors to perform your treatments but after the surgery it will be up to you the patient to do the rest.
