Dental implants in Dubai: 6 myths debunked

Dental Implants in Dubai are a popular option for replacing missing teeth. They have been around for many years. Although dental implants are very common, there are still some myths surrounding them. These myths are addressed by our implantologist.

Implants are very painful.

This is by far one of the most common, and absurd myths about implants. When compared to other dental treatments, the majority of patients believe this one was simpler and easier than they had anticipated. The level of pain relies on various factors like the patient’s eligibility for treatment, his ability to recover, and lastly the knowledge and expertise of the implantologist. Making decisions should not be based on fear. It is crucial to select the treatment that would produce the finest outcome.

Dental implants can be expensive

 To give you an idea, dental implants are not significantly more expensive than a typical three-unit tooth bridge. An implant will cost far less over time than a dental bridge because a bridge needs to be updated every 7 to 15 years. Unless the patient is being unbelievably reckless, a dental implant won’t ever need to be replaced. Hence, in the long run, dental implants will save you not only money, but also time and energy you would’ve spent on other short-lived solutions.

It takes a while to get dental implants.

An implant can take between 2 and 3 months, and this is understandably a fair amount of time.. There will usually be 4 appointments. A bridge can take between 3 and 6 weeks. The bridge is a temporary sacrifice that will provide long-term benefits. Bone by nature takes time to heal. It is necessary to repair the bone surrounding a new implant. But in some cases, the healing process can be prolonged by a bone graft.

For elderly patients, dental implants are not recommended

Implants are the best option for seniors. To chew food more easily, it is essential to have a fixed and permanent replacement of teeth. Functional efficiency is less than 50% for removable prostheses like partial/complete dentures.

For patients with medically compromised teeth, dental implants are not recommended

Patients with systemic conditions can have dental implants. Typically, only patients who are currently taking long-term corticosteroids or drugs for cancer treatment are not eligible to receive dental implants.

Implants in the mouth can cause bone infection and allergies.

Titanium is a biocompatible material that integrates well with bone. Implant material is not responsible for bone infection, but can be caused by postoperative complications or neglect. Although it is possible to have allergic reactions to titanium, it is still very rare.
