Dental implants are the most durable alternative to natural teeth. Other dental replacement devices are fragile and difficult to accommodate with and wear. Truth is, dental implants can even last a lifetime, if properly maintained and when the supporting structure (jawbone) is appropriate and healthy to keep them for so long. But a question emerged quite so often, namely, “Do dental implants feel natural?” We did some research and in a Youtube video, we found plenty of information you might find useful. Continue reading below and find out the answer.
The sensation differs from the post-operatory interval to the post-healing interval
Although in the interval following the implant many claim that they sense pain on a level or another, this is completely natural, such sensations occurring after all interventions. However, during the healing period, the patient might still sense a slight painful reaction of the jawbone, but only if biting too forceful while eating. However, after the jawbone is healed completely, all patients claim that there is no difference from real teeth in terms of sensations. Worth noticing is the fact that with regular painkillers, the discomfort felt after the surgery is easy to manage and keep under normal parameters. However, if the discomfort one experiences is unmanageable, they should certainly get in touch with the specialist whom performed the implant and find an appropriate solution.
Will a dental implant affect the way you speak or eat?
At the beginning, it is normal to sense some differences from the previous situation. However, given the fact that most patients needing such implants already have difficulties while eating or speaking due to the lack of multiple teeth, the situation shouldn’t differ much. In time, after the patient gets used with the implants, they will begin to notice a great improvement from the point of view of both their speaking habits and eating habits as well. The improvement is oftentimes a big one, since the patients weren’t previously able to chew or articulate properly due to the lack of multiple teeth. The adaptation period to the new teeth is a fairly short one, bringing with it great advantages.
What is the general opinion on dental implants?
All patients who chose dental implants to other alternatives available in the industry claim that there is no difference in appearance or sensation when it comes to it. The unanimous opinion seems to be that they are the greatest option, after a while the implant integrating in the jawbone and imitating perfectly natural teeth. Moreover, in many cases, these implants can look even better than your natural teeth, the patient having the opportunity to choose the shade they desire, which in many cases is crisp white.
Make sure you find an appropriate clinic where to have your dental implant surgery performed. Look it up on the Internet, read some reviews on the clinic itself and its staff. Naturally, the general opinion should be a positive one, and all former patients should acclaim it for the procedure.
