MYTH ONE– It is Excruciatingly painful
Dental Implants have been developed over the years so precisely and accurately keeping in mind about Biocompatibility. Dental Brands spend millions of dollars on Research to make the best Dental Implants which would not only be Human Friendly, but which can last decades & decades! The dental Implant procedures are not at all Painful thanks to the advancement in Anaesthesiology. A single anaesthesia injection Is more than enough to make the surgery pain free.

This Myth must be termed as False in this era of same day dentistry and digital Dentistry. The Implant placement procedure can be completed in a single session of 30-40 minutes.

MYTH THREE- The Risk of Implant rejection is very high
Let’s agree to a fact that a biocompatible material in the body can never have a 100% result, however Dental Implant’s have reported a success of almost 98%, highest percentage in the Biocompatible segment, thanks to continuous research & development procedures taking place. The Osseointegration that an dental implant gives cannot be found elsewhere! That’s the beauty of Dental Implants. The average rejection of Implant cases is only 3%. Most the implants get settled in the mouth quickly and functions normally on a healthy patient and without any serious endocrine or metabolic disorders. The fusing of an Implant system in the bone tissue is by far the best Medical Advancements.

MYTH FOUR- Dental Implant cannot be placed in every patient.
Only Pregnancy is termed as a Contraindication for placing of dental implants. Patients with systematic diseases of internal organs (Diabetes, Hypertension) as well in the case where a patient is subjected to addictions (smoking, excessive alcohol etc) should be approached with little bit of more carefulness. Dental Implantation in these cases is possible. Only condition is that these patients should have postoperative management. Some cases have reported of success in high levels of diabetes too and the Implant functioning within no time!
MYTH BUSTED- Dental Implants are possible for everyone subjected to good personal care and Oral Hygiene.
MYTH FIVE- Dental Implants are very expensive
The cost of placing an Implant in the mouth might cost you but you should consider it as an Investment on your health for Lifetime. There are a few brands in the market which offer Implants slightly less as compared to other Dental Implant Brands. The fact which needs to be kept in mind is the implant prosthesis for one loss tooth is the same as the cost of the dental bridge for the same lost tooth, consisting of three crowns. An Implant placed successfully has no additional cost except investing in a good toothpaste.

MYTH SIX- There is Bone loss after placing Dental Implants
This is a myth which needs to be seriously corrected. Dental Implants do not destroy bones in fact implants prevent the decrease in bone density and stimulate bone growth. The chances of bone loss are only possible if the placed implant was pre damaged due to certain technical flaws or if the Implant wasn’t placed properly inside the mouth. All you need to do is find out the best Implant Dentist with good experience in placing Dental Implants and someone who can assure you of success post the surgery.

Age is no bar to placing of the dental implants in the mouth due to the best Biocompatibility that an implant offers. On the contrary an elderly person should avoid placing of dental implants if s(he) is already subjected to diseases(cardiovascular) or metabolic disorders. Implants should only be placed after a thorough examination of the patient’s health condition.
MYTH BUSTED- age is not a bar for placing Dental Implants.
