Traveling, Dental Implants, and Metal Detectors

Summer is the prime season for travel, with many families taking long-awaited vacations and visits to see loved ones. If you’ve recently received dental implants, you might be wondering how they’ll impact your journey, particularly when going through airport security.

While the thought of setting off metal detectors can be unsettling, the good news is that modern dental implants are designed to ensure a hassle-free travel experience and enhance your dream vacation.

Understanding Dental Implant Materials

When you get same-day dental implants with FastNewSmile®, you aren’t loading a ton of metals in your mouth. Our Zirconia implants are a metal-free option that integrates seamlessly with the jawbone. Since Zirconia is metal-free, it’s non-magnetic, meaning it won’t interfere with the electromagnetic fields used by standard walk-through metal detectors at airports and other security checkpoints.

Even if you have several dental implants placed, you can confidently stroll through without worrying about setting off alarms, stalling up security, and missing your flight.

Advanced Security Screenings

Recently, many airports have adopted advanced imaging technology, such as full-body scanners, to enhance security measures. While these scanners may detect the presence of dental implants, they’re designed to identify potential threats, not flag routine medical devices or procedures.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) agents are well-versed in dealing with dental implants and other common medical devices like titanium rods and screws placed throughout the spine. Unless extenuating circumstances exist, they won’t subject you to additional screening or questioning simply because you have dental implants.

International Travel? Still Not a Problem!

While dental implants of all types of material are widely accepted and understood in the United States, security protocols can vary when traveling internationally. Some countries may have more stringent or outdated screening equipment that could potentially flag your dental implants if they stem from titanium materials.

At FastNewSmile®, we understand you want to comfortably show the world your new smile. Our Zirconia implants let you remain calm and cooperative with international airport attendants, without the need for extra documentation.

The Convenience of Dental Implants for Travelers

Unlike traditional dentures, which require adhesives, special cleaning solutions, and soaking containers, dental implants integrate seamlessly into your daily routine. When traveling, you’ll only need to pack your standard oral hygiene essentials – toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash – just as you would for natural teeth.

Moreover, dental implants restore your ability to enjoy a wide variety of cuisines without discomfort or dietary restrictions. Whether indulging in local delicacies or savoring familiar favorites, you can embrace the culinary experiences of your destination with confidence, knowing your implants are designed to function like your natural teeth.
