3 myths that need to be addressed related to Dental Implants
Dental Implants have been used for over 40 years now. Dental Implants procedure is the cornerstone treatment when a patient is missing more than one teeth. No matter how popular this treatment is, there are three popular myths.
Myths associated with Dental Implants
They are painful
This is absolutely false. We get a lot of patients and infact we have treated a lot of patients in the last one decade. The thing is when you undergo dental implant procedure your dentist will not proceed without the help of a anesthesia. This helps in dozing you off while they keep using the tools. Yes, after treatment you might experience some sort of difficulty or discomfort but that doesn’t last for a long time.
They are expensive
They aren’t that expensive. The average price for this treatment procedure in our clinic in $1740. The long-term cost for having an implant versus a bridge is much lower, since a bridge will be replaced every 7 -15 years. However chances are that your dental implant will most likely never need to be replaced!
The treatment takes a long time and healing as well
This again is false as they take only 2-4 months to heal. However the bone will take some time to heal because of its nature.
So that’s it!! These were the three myths which we wanted to address so that you should be clear whenever you come for this dental treatment.
