Dental Implant Myths:

Myth #1:  Dental Implants are too expensive!

Many patients fear that they are not a candidate for dental implants because of the expense.  The fact is, that over time, dental implants are more cost effective and more successful than many other forms of restoration.  Bridges may have to be replaced every 5-15 years, dentures and partials slip and become ill-fitting.  The maintenance and retreatment of these types of restorations can become expensive.  Dental implants are 97% successful over 47 years and they are permanant!  With dental implants, you do not have decay or increased wear on the other natural teeth.  Dental implants are, however, as susceptible to periodontal disease as natural teeth.  Dental implant patients must practice good oral hygeine and continue to get their dental cleanings every 4-6 months.

Myth #2:  Having a dental implant placed is painful!

Over 95% of patients report that having a dental implant placed is significantly less uncomfortable than having the tooth extracted in the first place.  This is because the placement of a dental implant is, by design, very precise and atraumatic to the oral tissue including the gum tissue and bone.  Most patients do not experience post-operative pain or swelling.  The tissues are preserved as much as possible in order to facilitate healthy healing.

Myth #3 Dental Implants are Experimental:

Dental implants have been a part of dentistry and oral surgery in the United States since the 1960’s.  Since then, design, materials and technique has been nearly perfected to ensure a 97% success rate over the last 47 years, or since dental implants were introduced.  It is very likely that dental implants will outlast most of the patients who have them!

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Third molars, also known as wisdom teeth begin to develop during the early teen years and are usually recommended for removal between the ages if 13 and 21.  Third molars usually begin to erupt in to the dental arch during the later teenage years and early adulthood, gaining the nickname “wisdom teeth”.  They are the last of the thirty-two teeth to erupt.

Most people’s jaw bones are not large enough to accommodate this third set of molars, which can pose a number of problems that usually require removal of the wisdom teeth.  Some of the problems that can be caused by wisdom teeth are listed below.

Impaction: Impacted third molars occur when the jaw bone is not large enough to accommodate the eruption of the teeth.  The third molars become malpositioned and remain “impacted” below the bone and gum tissue.  The roots of the teeth continue to grow and the teeth attempt to erupt, often creating pressure on the back of the second molars.  This can cause dental crowding, cyst formation or partial eruption which results in pain and infection (pericoronitis).  Impacted third molars are usually recommended for removal because these problems can cause serious damage to the adjacent teeth and jaw bone.

Dental Caries: Dental caries, or tooth decay is the most common problem associated with third molars which have managed to erupt into the dental arch.  These teeth are located out of easy reach for a toothbrush or floss.  Because they are so difficult to keep clean, the often decay or contribute to decay of adjacent teeth.  Removal of these third molars makes dental hygiene more manageable and aids in the maintenance of healthy gum tissue, reducing the risk of periodontal disease in the molar area.
