Dental Implants Before After
Some of our patients would like to know if dental implants are safe and are there any risks involved.
Dental Implants are proven safe and effective at replacing missing teeth. Contemporary dental implants have been in use for more than 30 years.
Dental implants are typically made of titanium, a biocompatible material that is accepted by the body and serves as a strong and sturdy foundation for the replacement of teeth. Your natural bone locks the implant into place by fusing, or attaching itself, to the implant. This process, known as osseointegration, gives implants the stability and strength to support the replacement teeth, withstand daily use, and function like regular teeth.
Dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry when performed by a trained and experienced dental implant dentist.
Dr Huson has placed over 500 Dental Implants and has the expert skills. He has worked under celebrity dentist Dr Joe Oliver in the Harley Street Region of London. You are guarenteed work that is world class and of the highest quality. A dental implant is the strongest device available to support replacement teeth, and it allows your replacement teeth to feel, look and work naturally. In addition, dental implants are the only restoration method that can stimulate your natural bone underneath the missing tooth to grow back.
Are Dental Implants Safe For Pregnant Mothers?
Since dental implant procedures require a check up using powerful X-rays and also anesthesia during the procedure, most orthodontists and dentists would advise mothers to wait until their second trimester for any oral work. If possible, even to wait until after the baby has been born to ensure no damage at all will be done to the fetus.
However, if degradation of the mother’s teeth is too excessive, it is crucial to have the teeth removed as soon as possible because keeping them in would require her immune system to go into overdrive and she would probably stress the fetus in the process.
It is important that pregnant women follow very strict oral hygiene regimes during their pregnancies to make sure their teeth do not suffer during the process. If a woman has excessive morning sickness and vomiting, it is advised to use bland toothpaste and to rinse with mouthwash very frequently to prevent any unnecessary bacterial buildup and increased infection.
There are also some specific questions around the safety related to pregnancy and auto-immune diseases.
