The price and process of getting a dental implant can be scary. Getting a dental implant means having the dentist drill into your jawbone, install an implant, and affix a new crown.  It’s not exactly something most people look forward to, but it is necessary. If you are missing a tooth or need to have a tooth extracted, then a dental implant can help you maintain your smile and prevent further damage to your mouth from the additional pressure put on your other teeth. If you’re facing the prospect of getting a dental implant in El Paso, here are some facts and myths you should know about.

Dental implants take months to complete: FACT

Getting a dental implant is a complex process that requires quite a bit of work, generally with 4-6 appointments. You can’t just get a dental implant in one sitting.  First, your dentist needs to surgically place the implant. This process is invasive and includes screwing the implant into your bone. Once the implant is placed, it takes 3-6 months to heal, but this is rather non-eventful. Then you’ll need the abutment placed, which is the attachment for the crown and takes about a month to heal. After that, you’ll need to come back in for an appointment to get fitted for a crown, which requires another appointment 1-3 weeks later to permanently place the crown.

Dental implants require additional care: MYTH

Some people worry that an implant is a lot of work to take on and may not be worth the extra time and care. However, an implant requires no more work than an actual tooth. You can still chew hard candy, apples, and other foods that require strong teeth. You can also chew gum as usual. Of course, it’s still important to brush and floss as you always have and to keep up with your bi-annual dentist visits.

Dental implants can cause your smile to shift: MYTH

Unlike bridges, which push up against your other teeth, implants are surgically placed in your jawbone, so they don’t push on any other teeth. Because it has its own foundation, you won’t have to worry about your implant shifting your teeth or causing aesthetic changes to your smile.

Dental implants last forever: FACT AND MYTH

The implant itself should last a lifetime if it’s properly placed. It’s made of titanium and very sturdy, so you will never have to go back for an update or any modifications. However, the crown on top of the implant may not last as long. Crowns last 10-15 years depending on how well they are cared for. So, you will eventually need to get a new crown. Your dentist will keep track of your crown’s progress and let you know when it’s time for a new crown.
