Are dental implants safe for pregnant mothers?
No, Dental implants are not safe for pregnant mothers according the American dental association. Pregnant mothers should wait until after their pregnancy to get dental implants..
Since dental implant procedures require a check-up using powerful x-rays and strong anaesthesia most dentists would advise mothers to wait until after the baby is born to ensure no danger to the fetus.
However, if degradation of the mother’s tooth/teeth are too excessive than it is best to chat her gynaecologist and dentist. Her dentist might offer some alternatives to maintaining her and her babies health.
It is important that pregnant women follow very strict oral hygiene regimes during their pregnancies to make sure that their teeth do not suffer during the process. If a woman has excessive morning sickness and vomiting, it is advised to use bland toothpaste and to rinse with mouthwash very frequently to prevent any unnecessary bacterial build-up and increased infection. Dental implants are not safe for pregnant mothers and it is advisable to chat to your gynaecologist before going ahead with any medical procedure.
Are dental implants a safe option?
Some of our patients would like to know if dental implants are a safe option AFTER PREGNANCY and are there any risks involved.
Dental Implants are proven safe and effective at replacing missing teeth. Contemporary dental implants have been in use for more than 30 years.
Dental implants are typically made of titanium, a biocompatible material that is accepted by the body and serves as a strong and sturdy foundation for the replacement of teeth. Your natural bone locks the implant into place by fusing, or attaching itself, to the implant. This process, known as osseointegration, gives implants the stability and strength to support the replacement teeth, withstand daily use, and function like regular teeth.
Dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry when performed by a trained and experienced dentist.
Dr Roy Richard-Huson has placed over 2000 Dental Implants. He has worked under celebrity dentist Dr Joe Oliver in the Harley Street Region of London. You are guaranteed work that is of the highest quality. A dental implant is the strongest device available to support replacement teeth, and it allows your replacement teeth to feel, look and work naturally.
