Like any dental procedure that has been around for decades, it always seems that the worst stories about treatments tend to linger around longer more than the good ones. Getting fitted with a dental implant or two can also suffer this fate; after all having a small titanium rod screwed through the gums and into the jawbone does come across as a tad gruesome. History also sheds painful light on the treatment because implants used to be fitted by using scalpels and drills, followed by stitching and months of healing- how times of changed though because having an implant put in today is no harder than having a filling; the reason for all of this is digital x-raying, computer based placement, and keyhole laser surgery. Lasers cause very little to the gum tissue which makes for fast healing and a full dental implant can be in within an hour. Of course, having one in the mouth is extremely robust, in for life and whatever fitting is attached to it will be secured very firmly indeed.
