Should You Get Dental Implants

 

Dental implants are a scary subject, especially when you're not sure what to expect from getting them, but are they essential? That depends on your dental health and the situations you may be facing; as an emergency dentists we can give you the pros and cons of dental implants.

 

What are Dental Implants

 

Dental implants are replacement tooth roots designed for both permanent and semi-permanent teeth. They are placed inside of your head where the old tooth had been. They're placed deep in your gum and can quickly be attended to as necessary.

 

Pros

 

The advantages of getting a dental implant are vast. Dental implants improve your appearance, improve your comfort, make eating more accessible; they're durable and convenient to attend to. This makes them a great option to take into consideration when contemplating dental implants.

 

Cons

 

Dental implants do have a few cons to take into account, though. Firstly they are costly, and insurance doesn't usually cover them. Over time each implant may need to be replaced. They also take a long time to heal over, and for a brief amount of time, after they're implanted, they can cause pain, which you should receive a script to tackle.
