Why You Can Have an MRI After Getting Dental Implants

Posted on: February 21st, 2023 | Categories: Dental Implants

When someone mentions dental implants, the first thing the comes to mind is metal. Dental implants are generally made from a titanium alloy, which is clearly a metal. When it comes to MRIs you’re often told to remove any metal objects, in fact, people with pacemakers generally cannot have an MRI for this reason. Why are dental implants so special, why is it that you can have an MRI when you have one or more dental implants?

The hint is in the ‘M’ part of the acronym ‘MRI’. The ‘M’ stands for magnetic, which means that the MRI machine will only interact with magnetic metals. Dental implants are made from a titanium alloy or zirconium oxide, neither of which are magnetic. The same applies to gold crowns or the old fashioned, amalgam fillings, since they are made from metals that do not interact with magnets they don’t pose an issue when you’re getting an MRI.

If you are looking for a dentist to do your dental implants and are worried if you can get an MRI after getting dental implants, there is no need to worry. Dental implants will not pose an issue if you ever needed an MRI. This is great news considering all the benefits that come from having dental implants.

If you are looking for dentist near Leominster or Sterling that restores dental implants, don’t hesitate to set up a dental implant consultation with one of the dentists at Sterling Dental Group in order to see if you are a candidate for dental implant surgery.
