Did You Know? 12 Fascinating Facts about Manhattan Dental Implants, PART 2 This four-part article series presents 12 interesting dental implant facts that are a testament to the sophistication of this technology as a tooth replacement solution. Welcome to the second installment of our four-part article series! In our introductory article, we presented the first three fascinating facts about Manhattan dental implants, the most sophisticated modern tooth replacement technology available. First, we discussed the material from which Manhattan dental implants are made â€“ titanium â€“ and how this is the same metal used to manufacture professional tennis racquets and spacecraft. We then took a look at how, through the process of osseointegration, Manhattan dental implants are actually capable of fusing, or biologically bonding with the jaw bone tissue. Finally, we revealed the incredible lifespan of Manhattan dental implants as a whopping 20, 30 years and longer. In this article, the second installment of the series, we shall look at more fascinating facts concerning this incredible tooth replacement technology. FACT: Contrary to their reputation, the procedures for the placement of Manhattan dental implants cause less pain and discomfort than a standard tooth extraction. It is an unfortunate misconception that Manhattan dental implants cause significant pain and discomfort. First of all, anesthesia and sedative medications typically renders the actual procedure completely pain and anxiety-free. Secondly, the use of X-rays and modern computer imaging software enables oral surgeons to place Manhattan dental implants using as few incisions and sutures as possible. This effectively minimizes post-operative pain and discomfort. And thirdly, patients are given prescription medications to help manage any pain they may experience in the
day or two following their surgery. It should be noted that the vast majority of patients do not complain of any significant pain or discomfort associated with Manhattan dental implants. FACT: The artificial tooth crown placed on Manhattan dental implants is fabricated from material that mimics the optical properties of real dental enamel. If you were concerned about Manhattan dental implants looking unnatural next to the rest of your pearly whites, think again! The durable ceramic material from which implant crowns are fabricated actually mimics the optical properties of dental enamel. Furthermore, the color of the restoration will be carefully mixed to match that of the rest of your teeth, so that it doesnâ€™t look different or appear unnatural. The overall result is a new tooth that is virtually indistinguishable in appearance (and function and feel) from the rest of your healthy adult teeth. FACT: Single dental implants enjoy a success rate of 98% One of the many reasons Manhattan dental implants are so highly recommended by oral surgeons is because they are so safe and reliable. Only a small percentage of dental implant procedures fail to provide patients with a long-term solution to missing teeth and this is almost always because the patients have failed to follow the post-operative instructions of the oral surgeon, or have resumed negative habits such as smoking and/or excessive drinking. The success of Manhattan dental implants is as reliant upon proper post-procedural care and hygiene as it is upon the skill and experience of the oral surgeons that place them.
