Are Dental Implants Safe

Are  implants safe? The answer is yes. This procedure has been used successfully in dentistry for over 30 years and is considered very safe. For most healthy patients, there is little or no risk of serious complications or problems with the dental implant procedure.

However, it is important to take good care of your dental health before getting an implant. For example, if you have severe periodontal (gum) disease,  you may not be able to get an implant until you get appropriate treatment to manage  your gum disease and stop progressing. How safe and effective are dental implants? According to one study, 90-95% of implants are still in perfect condition 10 years after insertion, while another study has a success rate of 9598% for up to 4050 years.

Dental implants in Dubai, which have been used for half a century, are safe and effective. However, as with any medical procedure, complications can arise. Choosing a knowledgeable and well-trained dental implant specialist will help you minimize complications and provide competent solutions if problems arise.

It is important for you and your implant dentist to familiarize yourself with your medical history and  habits that may affect the success of the treatment you recommend, such as smoking, so that you are fully aware of the benefits and risks involved.

Dental implants are very safe, especially when placed by an experienced implant dentist.. However, you should be careful as there are  some complications that can occur in some situations.

 The most common complication is peri-implantitis. This is an infection of the gum tissue next to the implant. This may be due to improper cleaning of the implant site during the procedure or  the patient  not cleaning and caring for the implant properly after  surgery.

 Therefore, the risk of this complication can be almost completely eliminated by placing the implants together with a trained dentist and following postoperative recovery guidelines.

 In rare cases, the implant may not attach properly to the bone. Because it is more common in patients with weakened jaw bones, proper  planning before placing an implant and surgery such as a bone graft to strengthen the jaw can avoid this problem. Another complication is implant rejection. Also called “foreign object rejection,” this complication is very rare and occurs when there is an immune system reaction or an allergic reaction to the implant.

Types of implants-

There are two main types of implants:

Endosteal-This implant is placed in the jawbone. It is usually made of titanium and is the most commonly used type of implant in the shape of a small screw


These dental implants are placed under the gums, but above or above the jawbone. This type of implant can be used in patients who do not have a healthy natural jawbone and cannot or do not want to undergo  bone augmentation  to restore it.

Alternative Dental Implant Techniques-Depending on the condition of your jawbone and your specific needs, your  implant dentist may offer several alternative treatment options in addition to  traditional multi-step dental implant procedures. Options may include:

 If the jawbone cannot support a dental implant, several methods are available to repair the bone, restore the natural jawline, and create a solid foundation for implant-supported teeth. 

 Bone Graft

 This includes repairing or regenerating jawbones that cannot support implants. Research shows that using bone supplements and growth factors to strengthen your bones usually gives you the best results.

 Sinus Lift

 Also called maxillary sinus enlargement or maxillary sinus elevation, it involves adding bone under the maxillary sinus when the natural bone has deteriorated due to a defect in the maxillary molars.

 Ridge Expansion

 If the jaw is not wide enough to support the implant, bone graft material may be added to the small ridge or space created along the top of the jaw.

 3D  imaging and treatment plan

 State-of-the-art, high-precision digital 3D imaging and surgical implant  planning software has made implant procedures faster and more predictable. Dentists can use these tools to analyze jaw anatomy  and determine the optimal location to place implants prior to surgery. This saves time and money, and shortens recovery times.

 Immediate Loaded Dental Implants

 Immediate-Loaded Dental Implants, also known as same-day implants or Teeth in a Day®, allow you to insert temporary teeth during a visit, such as a dental implant. This can be a good option if you have enough natural bone and the implant is safe enough to place and apply pressure to your new temporary tooth immediately.

 Mini Dental Implant (MDI)

 Also known as small or narrow diameter implants, these toothpick-sized implants are narrower than the most commonly used dental implants. They are placed using less invasive techniques and are primarily used  to stabilize the underlying prosthesis.

 Alon 4

 The Allon4 is an alternative to the upper or lower row of replacement teeth called a full arch. Four dental implants are placed in accessible bone to prevent bone grafting. Special abutments are used to allow the temporary set of  teeth to be placed on the same day. A modified diet is followed while the gum tissue heals and the implant connects to the natural bone. After about 6 months,  permanent replacement teeth are provided and you can resume your normal diet.
