Do you have missing, decayed or deteriorated teeth? Did you find a dentist who suggested dental implants but you are hesitant about it? If yes, don’t as dental implants are saviours for missing teeth.
Though treatment results may vary, take a look at these ten teeth implants before and after photos and reviews. These people too were once hesitant about dental implants but are now happy they did.
I really wished I had listened to my dentist and mom when small. I never used to brush my teeth regularly, and it took its toll on my teeth. Multiple teeth ended up with cavities and as I was afraid to find a dentist, things got worse.
I ended up feeling shy to smile or talk to anyone and even missed college because of it. This is was when my close friend finally compelled me to visit a dentist who said I needed dental implants.
He told me it was an extensive procedure, involving some wisdom teeth extractions and bone graft but photos proved the results were well worth it. And am I glad I listened to him as I now got a fresh lease at life, and could confidently face my friends and peers after implants and veneers!
My teeth weren’t perfect, nor were they the best. But I did have a problem with my front tooth, which I had lost due to a fall. The space in my teeth spoilt my smile and even changed my eating habits. This was when I’d consulted my dentist, who suggested getting mini dental implants.
I was a bit skeptical with the idea at first, but after taking a look at a few dental implants before and after photos of other people, I decided I’d go ahead with it. I’m really happy with the results!
The teeth implants process is rather straightforward, and not as painful as I’d anticipated. Thanks to the dental implant, I can finally give a good smile, and confidently face the world!
Yes, you’ve guessed it right; these photos are a result of poor oral hygiene and consequent wisdom teeth removal. I could manage eating food, and I didn’t actually think that I needed any dental treatment as the gap wasn’t visible while smiling and talking.
However, my dentist explained that a dental implant not only had aesthetic benefits, but it also provided some support to my jaw bone and prevented future degeneration. She explained the implant system procedure to me. I realized the benefits of getting implants, decided to go ahead with it and am happy I did!
I had always thought dental implants just improved my smile and facial aesthetics. It was my dentist who explained it did more than that and mainly prevented further jaw bone loss because of missing teeth. This was when I decided to have dental implants surgery which wasn’t as painful as I thought it would be.
In fact, the only pain I actually felt was while extracting my damaged and decayed teeth while the rest of the procedure was relatively less painful. The procedure needed 4 months to complete, but looking at the end results, it was well worth it!
I had lost my front teeth at a young age to poor hygiene and dental decay. I ended up avoiding people and not attending social events as I felt embarrassed opening my full mouth to speak or smile because of my missing front teeth.
I always thought that wearing dentures was the only available dental treatment, and never consulted my dentist about it. I one day had to visit my dentist because of a very bad toothache when she advised I go for dentist implants.
She showed me some dental implants before and after photos, described a dental implant case study and I was soon convinced that dental implants were worth trying out. My missing teeth meant I didn’t need extractions, so the procedure was practically painless. Within 3 months time, I could finally smile with confidence, and live the social life I always wanted!
I never did like going to the dentists as I always associated dentists with pain and discomfort. So while I did practice regular brushing and flossing of my teeth, I missed my back teeth. One tooth ended up completely decayed which eventually had to be removed.
It was while extracting the tooth that my dentist advised getting a dental implant to replace it. He told me it would help prevent adjacent permanent teeth from deteriorating, and jaw degeneration.
He assured me the surgery wouldn’t hurt much, that it was less painful than a tooth extraction. So I agreed, and am happy I did as the implant looks so much like my other teeth that no one even knows about it!
I had chipped my front tooth upon falling from my bicycle when I was small. As a dental filling didn’t help much, I asked my dentist for another alternative. She advised getting a front tooth implant and showed me some dental implant photos of abutment.
The procedure seemed rather straightforward and didn’t seem to be painful. So I obliged with my dentist, and decided to get myself a tooth implant. Though I made multiple visits to my dentist, these photos show it was worth it! I now have no gap in between my teeth after implants surgery, and can face the world with renewed confidence!
I am a sixty-year-old woman and I’d lost multiple teeth. As I never was comfortable with the thought of wearing dentures, my digestion and appetite suffered. So I decided to look for an alternative and turned to my dentist for help.
She suggested dental implants, which unlike dentures provided a permanent missing teeth solution. She explained the oral surgery and said I was lucky as there was no extraction involved as tooth and wisdom teeth extraction was the most painful part!
While the procedure stretched across a few months, the wait and dentist appointments were well worth it. Not only can I eat whatever I want, there’s no digestion problem, and these photos prove my confidence levels have also increased after implants!
Who thought that increased stress and acidity would lead to decayed teeth and its extraction? With it I noticed some facial sagging, which my dentist explained was because of my missing teeth.
Though I was first hesitant about the implants and veneers he had suggested, the sag in my face, prompted me to do something about it. My dentist explained the procedure through a dental implant case study and assured me that it wasn’t painful.
He told me that while an OTC painkiller would help, most patients didn’t need one. There was indeed no need for any painkillers, and in a few months time, I got back my ‘original’ set of teeth. Looking at the photos, you see its difficult telling the difference between my actual teeth and implants!
As you can see, my teeth were in pathetic condition as I was a habitual smoker and occasionally chewed tobacco. My wife tolerated my breath and teeth to the hilt, and started threatening a divorce if I didn’t do something about my horrible teeth!
I headed to my dentist who gave me a lecture for my bad habits and said that there was a solution for my problem in teeth implants. Though the procedure sounded frightening at first, once I looked at a few photos of past patients, I decided it was worth it.
It took a few months of full jaw restorations with implants and a bone graft. But I eventually walked out with perfect teeth and smile after implants, which my wife was rather content about!
How Long Is A Dental Implant Procedure?
Dental implants or tooth root replacements involve osseointegration where the implant fuses with the bone. This stops degeneration and further jawbone loss, and also plays a vital part in restoring facial form and function in people with severe jawbone loss.
The implant system procedure starts with oral surgery to place the implant, which is much easier and less painful than a tooth extraction. Your dentist will use a local anaesthetic for a single implant while general anaesthesia is used for more extensive procedures.
Damaged or decayed teeth are first removed. Implants are next placed as new tooth roots and need three to six months to heal and fuse with your bone. Your dentist will in the meantime attach temporary crowns to give you a perfect smile and a strong foundation for the permanent crowns.
Most patients are surprised that there’s so little pain, because the implants fuse with the bone and not gum tissue. So there’s less bruising, swelling and tingling and any discomfort is treated with over-the-counter medication.
After dental implant reconstruction, your dentist will customize porcelain crowns matching your missing tooth or teeth in shape and shade. Your dentist will take a mould of your teeth and gums with the replacement teeth, and send it to a dental lab.
The crowns are ready in two to three weeks which your dentist will attach to the implants after removing the temporary crowns. You now have an aesthetically pleasing smile and you can eat and chew food as always with natural teeth.
The teeth implantation will last a lifetime, with the right care, and regular dental checkups. Of course, like any treatment, the treatment results may vary and in rare cases, there may even be some teeth implants problems like need of some sinus grafting.
