Why it’s important to carefully select your dental implant dentist

Any surgical procedure requires skill, which is why it’s important to think about your safety when selecting a dental surgeon

This month in Italy a woman found herself with an unusual problem that went beyond a general dental emergency. She was experiencing significant discomfort and thought that nasal issues were due to a cold or flu which she contracted. Her situation however was far worse than a head cold, as doctors later found that there was in fact a dental implant embedded in her left sinus. Although titanium (what a dental implant is made out of) is biocompatible it’s definitely not ideal to have one anywhere except for your jawbone.

Here at Just Smile in Ramsgate we can replace a missing tooth with a dental implant and implant crown which look and feel like a natural tooth. Dr Rammo’s years of surgical experience allow him to perform the dental implant procedure with higher success rates.

When it comes to the Italian woman, what has happened is a failed dental implant procedure – where the implant has failed to integrate with the jaw bone. The implant then most likely made its way into the sinus while the patient was asleep. Here at Just Smile we will be with you every step of the way and will recommend check-ups so that we can monitor the progress of the osseointegration (where the bone and implant fuse).

What are the success rates of dental implants?

Dental Implant Success Rate brandedThese statistics depend on a number of factors including the health of the patient at the time of surgery and the age of the patient. In order to maximise the success rate of your dental implant procedure it’s important to be the healthiest you can be. This means quitting smoking, eating healthy and taking care of your oral health. You should also have a thorough understanding of the procedure and what materials your dentist uses.

Dr Rammo uses the NobelGuide Dental Implant System

The 3D capabilities of the NobelGuide System allow Dr Rammo to perform a more accurate placement of your dental implants. This advanced system shows the exact position and depth where your dental implant should be placed. This also enables simultaneous placement of your implant and your restorative implant crown so that you can enjoy the full functionality of your mouth as soon as possible.
