Are dental implants safe?
Dental implants are a safe and amazing treatment option that gives you the longest-lasting tooth replacement available in dentistry today.
There are three areas to look at when we talk about the safety of dental implants: Planning, Surgery, and Maintenance.
Proper planning is the key to the long-term success of your dental implant. The implant must be placed in such a way that it avoids nerves, arteries, sinuses, and other structures and is placed in the ideal location to support the implant. We use 3-D cone beam imaging to plan the precise placement of your implant before we even begin surgery. Dr. Cantwell uses the customized surgical guide to ensure that your implant is placed correctly. This process is called "Fully Guided Surgery."
The safety of implant surgery is also enhanced by planning placement beforehand. Since there's no guesswork in placing the implant in the optimal position, the length of surgery decrease, and faster surgery means fewer complications and a smoother recovery.
The key to the longevity of your dental implant is excellent oral hygiene habits at home paired with semi-annual preventive exams and dental cleanings at our Boise, ID dental office. By investing in technology that allows Dr. Cantwell to perform Fully Guided Surgery, the safety of placing implants has increased, and complications have decreased.
