What are dental implants?

Dental implants Edinburgh are small titanium screws that are secured in the jawbone and used as a platform on which to build new, natural looking teeth. Crowns, bridges and dentures are available to create a healthy and natural looking smile. Nobody should be ashamed of their smile and we want to help you achieve a smile that you can be proud of. As previously mentioned an implant is a small titanium screw that is placed directly into the jawbone with a new crown placed on top, resulting in an effective and practical restoration. This treatment is common and effective and has been used by many patients so you can be assured that you are in good hands. Implants can be used to replace a single tooth or a number of teeth. Dental implants can be used as a cost effective investment, as you will not have to continually make payments to replace less stable solutions. This article will run through how this treatment works, as well as why you should consider having it.

How are they fitted?

Dental implants Edinburgh are carried out by our oral surgery specialists ensuring that you will achieve brilliant results. The initial stage of this treatment involves placing the screw into the bone and then allowing time for this to be incorporated into the structure of your mouth. Once there has been sufficient time for the site of the implant to become healed further work can be completed. This allows you to then be fitted for your crown, bridge or denture that will fit directly over the implant. Any prosthesis will be specially designed so it fits in your mouth perfectly and will match your other teeth well. It allows you to create a smile that is both functional and natural looking. You can be assured that these implants will be fitted scrupulously and provide a long term solution to the issue of missing teeth. You will be able to have confidence in your new and improved smile.

Why should I consider this treatment?

Dental implants Edinburgh are a result of tried and tested methods of dental science and have proven to be a good alternative to other replacement treatments. As long as you look after your new smile the implants can last almost a lifetime. Benefits of this treatment include the fact that the application process will not damage the surrounding teeth. The implants are fitted at the bone which can help prevent the structural integrity of the face and jaw collapsing and patients can be assured that their teeth will look and feel like the teeth that they have lost.
