Dental implants risks
Due to the fact that the dental implant insertion procedure is a surgical operation, each patient is subject to certain risks that can sometimes have negative consequences. That is why it is good to inform yourself in advance about how you can avoid the risks of dental implant, to choose an implantology clinic and a doctor specialized in dental surgery.
The main risks are:
The main risk to consider is the lack of integration, ie the implant does not weld to the bone. This is often due to lack of cooperation from patients - smokers who solemnly promise to quit smoking and do not, people who do not maintain good hygiene status after surgery or do not follow exactly the postoperative instructions, infections of neighboring teeth. , etc.
In this situation the implant is removed, the place is cleaned and another one is placed or the bone is reconstructed with bone substitute and then a new dental implant is placed.
Dr. Nassar uses custom implants, so the risk of losing the implant is extremely low.
If this side effect still occurs, Dr. Nassar offers free implant replacement.
One of the risks of dental implants, edema (swelling), occurs when postoperative instructions are not followed. To reduce this risk, the patient must strictly follow the surgeon's instructions, respectively to maintain good oral hygiene (frequent mouthwashes) and to follow the prescribed medication (anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, etc.).
INJURY OF NERVES
Nerve damage is another risk that, when it occurs, causes pain, numbness or tingling in the teeth, gums, cheeks or lips. Injury occurs by touching or approaching neighboring anatomical structures - the alveolar nerve below the mandible.
These risks can be prevented by a very rigorous clinical and radiological examination before surgery, including CT if necessary, and precise adherence to the operating protocol.
Postoperative inflammation accentuated is another risk that can be prevented by using all sterile equipment and instruments, sterile or disposable fields, rigorous asepsis and antisepsis measures.
At the implantology clinic, Dr. Nassar implemented these strict measures according to the Israeli hospital model, the clinic being entirely organized according to this model.
Another possible problem that can occur is the loss of the implant (including the crown) after a number of months. In general, this risk is due to improper crown construction and occurs in offices that do not have their own surgeon, but an external collaborator. For this reason there is no close connection between the teams of specialists.
Our clinic offers patients all dental specialties and therefore the risk of implant loss is minimized.
LOSS OF BONE SUBSTITUTE
In the case of dental implants that require bone addition, after the operation, granules from this bone can be lost. This risk can occur in the days after the intervention, due to edema or improper closure.
Dr. Nassar operates according to a strict protocol, using the know-how of the Israeli medical school. His over-specialization in dental implantology automatically indicates that such incidents cannot occur.
