Are Dental Implants Comfortable?

Posted on 8/15/2015 by Anthony M. DiCesare
A diagram of how a dental implant works.Maybe not getting them put in, but in every other way, YES! Because implants require a surgical procedure, there is a healing time needed. After that, dental implants are the superior choice over traditional dentures and bridges. Implants are much more comfortable than dentures and have the added bonus of looking and functioning more like your real teeth than the removable and awkward dentures.

Superior Comfort
After the healing process, which depends on how many implants you are receiving, but ranges from a few months to 9 months, you can enjoy the comfort of having implants. There are no messy adhesive creams to deal with. No taking your teeth out at night. No pinching or bruising from dentures that will become ill-fitting over time. This is because they are generally only good for 5-7 years before they need to be replaced. Implants last a lifetime.

Without teeth to hold facial structure, the jawbone begins to lose bone mass. This can be a painful process and cause a cascade of complications. The titanium rods prevent bone loss and will preserve facial appearance. Another comfort measure is that the implants can take the force applied to them from chewing. All other methods transfer the force to adjacent teeth or gums, even causing them to weaken over time.

Au Natural
Once your implants have healed and the top portion of the tooth has been added to the small titanium rod, the tooth will function and feel like a normal tooth. No one will be able to tell. You do not need to do any special treatment. Flossing and brushing carry on like nothing ever happened. Even though dental implants can't get cavities, they can receive normal wear and tear just like any other natural tooth. Bridges can easily become painfully infected and are difficult to keep clean.

And if you have a full set of implants, the same holds true. You just take care of them like you would your natural teeth.
