Are dental implants considered to be the best choice for me?
As mentioned earlier, our centre has provided over 50 years of experience in successful treatments. This includes implantology and other implant dentistry. We have carried out over 8000 procedures in placing dental implants.
Our dentists and specialists in this field have extensive experience in carrying out this procedure, and some are also heavily involved in teaching and training the dental professionals who wish to also carry out implant treatment. Our specialist team dealing with dental implants consists of Arshad Ali, Abid Faqir, Soct Muir and Kevin O’ Farrell.
What happens during the procedure?
For the procedure, a small metal post or frame is surgically positioned into your jawbone, which will allow one of our dentists to mount replacement teeth onto the post. So if you are in need of replacing a tooth, you will need to have a minor surgical procedure. Patients are required to have healthy gums and enough bone in order to support the metal post and replacement tooth. The post that will be put in place also provides stable support for artificial teeth as the implants are fused onto the jawbone.
If you feel particularly nervous about this treatment you can rest assured that the procedure is carried out under strict sterile conditions. Many patients do undergo this treatment under local anesthetic and others have the option of being placed under conscious sedation. Conscious sedation is considered to be a low level procedure for pain, both during and after the operation. If you do however experience any pain after the procedure, over-the-counter painkillers are recommended.
Implant Retained Dentures in Glasgow – a guide
In some instances, it may be recommended for an individual to have several teeth replaced, which is why implant retained dentures are considered a better option in some cases as opposed to dental implants. With Implant Retained Dentures in Glasgow, the dentures are secured by dental implants. This means that the dentures are able to act like natural teeth, and there is no worry of the dentures becoming loose. This can help in boosting the confidence of our patients.
This procedure is also considered to be minimally invasive, as any adjacent remaining teeth are left untouched. Implant Retained Dentures in Glasgow are also known to last a lifetime as long as good oral hygiene is maintained.
