If you are considering dental implants, listening to myths related to the treatment is unhelpful. It is always better to get your information from the professionals. Misleading or outright untruthful information will do nothing to improve your smile.

Some of the myths associated with dental implants are also dangerous. You may make poor oral health choices based on what you have heard from unreliable sources. An experienced dentist can quickly dispel misinformation and steer you on the right course.

A Temporary Solution

There is a prevailing belief that implants will not last longer than ten years. While this is true of some dental restorations, properly fitted implants can decades. Recommended aftercare and maintenance is the key to success.

By following the instructions of your specialist dentist, you can enjoy your new teeth indefinitely. Every patient has different needs, so aftercare and follow-ups are essential. Attending regular checkups is one of the most effective guarantees that your dental implants will last longer.

Dental Implants are Unnatural

It goes without saying that dental implants are unnatural. However, that does not mean your teeth won’t look, feel or function naturally. This particular myth may have roots in older techniques that could not fully replicate the appearance and structure of teeth.

Initially, you will likely notice the difference. As time goes by, dental implants will look and feel as natural as your original teeth. When you trust an expert with your treatment, any oral health restoration will result in a satisfactory and comfortable experience.

Dental Implants are Time Sensitive

There is a risk of missing the window on benefiting from dental implants, if treatment is delayed. However, this is a decision that is best left to the experts. Bone grafting is an option that can make dental implants an option when jawbone density is lost.

Healthy bone density is needed to support dental implants. By grafting bone onto a weaker area, you can still benefit from this type of restoration. In fact, a successful procedure can lead to better bone health through replicating the natural function of your teeth.

Umakant D.

I will highly recommend Dr. Dalla. I found him to be very pleasant and highly professional. I had implants done and he did it so well that I had no discomfort. He is an excellent dentist specialist.

I went to Ora last month for a denture implant consultation, soon as I walked through the door I was greeted by the ladies in the front. My consultation went great Dr. Dalla was great, he listened to my concerns and explained what would be the best procedure for my situation. Also worked with my financial situation. I had all my teeth extracted and my dentures placed. Tia was so wonderful she did her best to calm me down and reassure me there was nothing to be nervous about. Before he started I expressed how nervous and scared I was he assured me I was in great hands and I was. The staff there is the best. I have a little discomfort but when I looked in the mirror for the first time a hour ago I was very very happy with my outcome. I still have to go back for the implants then I'll be finished. I want to thank the whole staff at Ora for giving me my confidence back in my smile.
