Facts about Dental Implants

Posted 2 December 2015 in News

Single Crown Implant

Dental implants have become very popular in recent years, and they are a great teeth replacement option.

They are designed to look and behave in the same way as your normal teeth and they are so natural looking that you won’t be able to differentiate them from your natural teeth.

If you have missing teeth and feel self-conscious about it, then implants are a great solution. They will enable your teeth to look as good as new again and the effect it will have on your own self-esteem and confidence will be very positive.

One of the main things that hold people back from having them is fear. Fear about them being safe, and will the procedure hurt?

They are perfectly safe and a well researched and established treatment that has been tried and tested and proven to offer many benefits. Whether you need all your teeth replacing or just a couple, they are a safe solution. It is a relatively painless process where a local anaesthetic is used. Although there may be a little discomfort after the treatment, this only lasts about a week and then everything will feel normal again

Here are some more interesting facts about them:

Implants stimulate growth of bones. They are a unique method for replacement of teeth parts that can help the natural growth of bones. Dentures, for example, can cause bone loss and implants prevent that.

They are made from titanium, so they are very strong and lightweight. Titanium is a known resistant to lots of different things such as chemicals, acids, waters, alkalis, etc.

Many medical researchers have shown that dental implants have a great success rate of almost 100%. Of course, success rate can vary depending on their location and how well they were installed, but their success rate is very close to perfect. Unlike dentures, they are more durable and they do not require modifications.

They can hold a lot more weight than dentures. Dentures, for example, can hold about 23 kilograms of force, while implants can hold over 90 kilograms of weight. Besides holding more weight, they don’t lose their strength with time and stay in perfect condition.

Many patients have benefitted from having them fitted and the overall experience has enhanced their quality of life, self-confidence and self-esteem.

Wisdom tooth removal.

I had my lower wisdom tooth removed. To say that I was a nervous patient was an understatement. The dentist was very understanding and explained the process in stages where I could ask questions. Even though I was really panicking inside the staff had a true sense of calm and the tooth removal was quick and uneventful. I originally wanted sedation but felt confident to go without. The aftercare information was very useful. I experienced a first class service here!
