Dental implants have long been associated with a laundry list of negatives; outrageous cost, large amounts of discomfort during and after the procedure, time spent away from work and avoiding favorite foods are all commonly thought to be synonymous with dental implants. Fortunately, advances in technology and practices have made dental implants much simpler and easier than they’re commonly thought to be.
Long-term costs are greatly decreased when compared to that of traditional dentures, and affordable payment plans are available for a wide range of budgets and financial situations. Discomfort is virtually nonexistent during the procedure, thanks to intravenous sedation and medications, and the time associated with surgery and recovery have been greatly reduced, thanks to advances in technique and technology. The technology used during the procedure has advanced beyond the usual selection of instruments, from custom, easy-to-install full sets of dental implant supported teeth to robotics that can guarantee advanced planning and incredible precision.
