What are the Negative Effects of Dental Implants?
It is true that dental implants may now be the latest, state-of-the-art procedure in the world of dentistry today and it may be great considering the fact that it looks and feels like your natural teeth, but have you ever stop to consider that like all procedures or surgeries, it may also have its side effects?
True enough, as perfect as it may seem, it also has its flaws. But complications from dental implant surgery can either happen quickly after the procedure or after a few years later.
Always remember that it’s common to experience tooth implant pain after the surgery, you could always take pain medications for that.
Also bear in mind that dental implant surgery recovery takes between 3 to 6 months to heal completely but always watch out for these complications that may occur after surgery.
Some of the most common early dental implant complications are, infection at the implant site, implant micro-movements, this happens when the implant lacks balance and solidity which often happens immediately after tooth surgery.
Another is insufficient bone support; this is when the dentist does the procedure anyway even if there isn’t enough bone to support the implant.
Lastly, we have the allergic reaction which can only occur if you’re allergic to titanium alloy.
Aside from those, there are also late dental implant complications as well which could be nerve or tissue damage, foreign body rejection, dental implant protruding to the sinus cavity and injury to area near the implant.
True enough, we all know that all surgeries are risky and that there could always be complications, still it’s your body, it’s your life and you are the only one who can decide.
