At Borsky Dental Group in Cincinnati, Ohio, we offer dental implants for our patients seeking long-lasting improvements to your smile. There are myths about dental implants that may discourage some patients from looking into this type of dental restoration. Today, we would like to help you understand more about dental implants by examining these myths.

Myth #1 Dental implant placements are painful

Dental implant placement is a surgical procedure, so there can be some discomfort and pain, but no more than having a tooth extracted. Dr. Jeremy Borsky and our team will ensure that you are as comfortable during the procedure as possible, offering aesthetic options to suit your needs.

Myth #2 Dental implants can be rejected or even fall out

Dental implants are made from biocompatible materials—typically titanium, so your body shouldn’t reject it. In fact, the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons has found that dental implants have a success rate of 95 percent.

Myth #3 Dental implants are expensive

While dental implants do cost more than dentures or dental bridges, initially, in the long run, dental implants are more cost-effective because they last longer than dentures or bridges, lasting up to 25 years.

Myth#4 Any dental provider can do an implant, so you can shop for a bargain

Discount dental providers may cut corners using less experienced staff, outdated equipment or poor quality materials leaving you with sub-standard results. If you want your dental implant to last, you want quality work done using quality materials. Dr. Jeremy Borsky will ensure that your dental implant is the highest quality available.

Myth #5 Dental implants are only for young people

Dental implants can only be done when jaw growth is complete, but once that happens you can have a dental implant restoration successfully performed up into your 90’s. Most health issues which are treated and controlled will allow you to be a successful dental implant candidate.

At Borsky Dental Group in Cincinnati, Ohio, Dr. Jeremy Borsky and our team want to provide our patients with the quality dental care they deserve. If you are ready to find out whether you are a good candidate for a dental implant, please give our team a call today at 513-232-6560!
