What are dental implants in Glasgow?

Dental implants are popular in the field of restorative dentistry, their use strives to restore both the physical appearance and the function of the teeth. Implants are seen as the best form of tooth replacement in modern dentistry, as they replace teeth at the root. At our dental practice in Glasgow we have over fifty years’ worth of experience in the implementation of dental implants and have successfully administered over eight thousand of them, which we believe speaks for itself!


An alternative perspective

Within the modern field of dentistry patient testimonials are now considered invaluable when choosing a dental practice, which is why we publish many of our customers’ positive reviews on our modern and accessible website.

How do dental implants in Glasgow work?

Dental implants are essentially titanium screws, (which are usually less than a centimetre long), that are adopted to replicate the tooth’s natural root. The dental implant itself could be argued as the most important aspect of the treatment, however the abutment (also called the connector) is vital in connecting the replica root and the porcelain crown together.

A tailor-made dental treatment

At our dental practice in Glasgow we treat every patient as unique, which is why our porcelain crowns are custom-made for each dental case! The porcelain crown is not only durable, but it also looks and feels like a natural tooth within the mouth, the crown is matched perfectly to the surrounding teeth in terms of their shape and shade.

What are the benefits of receiving dental implants in Glasgow?

When choosing a form of restorative dentistry many patients may be weighing up the pros and cons of their chosen treatment, which is why we display the benefits of dental implants on our website.

Why choose implants?

Dental implants not only allow our patients to eat, drink, and clean their teeth normally again, but they also give them reassurance that their new smile will last almost a lifetime (if cared for correctly). In addition to their impressive aesthetic appearance dental implants also allow bone density and the structure of the face to be fully restored, which can be a huge positive for patients who are concerned about ‘hollowing’ of the face which can occur when teeth are missing.

Feeling nervous regarding your treatment?

Many of our patients may be experiencing anxiety surrounding their visit to our practice, which is in fact extremely common when people are contemplating dentistry and never something to be ashamed of. Despite common misconceptions, dental anxiety can be experienced by patients of all ages and can stem from negative childhood experiences.
