Teeth implants prices in Dublin more affordable than ever
Dental implants will soon have you smiling again if you’re missing a tooth or two. Read all about it right here.
It’s a fact of life that most of us are vain in some form or other. For example, we’ve seen adult men spend an absolute fortune on hair replacement, yet dress like a tramp!
What they wear is obviously not part of their self-image, so they don’t care about spending money on a new suit – but they would die of embarrassment if people knew that they were challenged in the hair department.
The one area where most of our vanities seem to converge, however, is when it comes to our smile. It seems that we’re hardwired to appreciate the value of a big beaming smile, so anything that gets in the way causes us some grief.
And the most destructive element in terms of your smile is a gap. In other words, a tooth or a couple of teeth going missing, whether as a result of an accident, or perhaps due to dental disease.
Until relatively recently, the only option you would have had – apart from grinning and bearing it – is dentures. And while dentures are highly effective in covering up that gap, they have been superseded by modern-day dental implants – also known as teeth implants.
What’s the difference between dentures and implants?
People who have worn dentures will probably tell you that they are sometimes less than 100% trustworthy. In other words, they can slip out of place or move slightly, which totally gives away the game. Suddenly, everyone knows that you have false teeth.
An implant, on the other hand, involves placing a miniature ‘stake’ deep into your bone, so this provides an absolutely rock solid solution. Believe us when we say that your implant is not going anywhere!
Another big benefit is that the contemporary implant can often look much more authentic than dentures. Your dentist can file the replacement tooth so that it matches the shape of your old tooth – and he can even colour it so that it fits in with the colour of your surrounding teeth.
The net result is a very realistic replacement tooth, and we’re prepared to wager that nobody will know you're wearing an implant unless you choose to share it with them.
A further big plus of the dental implant is the level of comfort it bestows on the wearer. Most people forget they're wearing one after a day or two, and there’s no sense that you have to be constantly on the alert to keep your replacement tooth from moving (as in the case of dentures). This leads to a much more comfortable and relaxing experience.
The new implant is also as strong – or stronger – than your original teeth. So even if you bite into a big apple or start to tuck into a steak, you can be sure that your implant will be up to the job.
The final benefit relates to cost. Teeth implants prices in Dublin have come down to a large extent due to a more streamlined approach and advances in dental technology. And here at MyDental, affordability is also addressed through our 0% Dental Finance Plan, which lets you spread the cost over three, six or nine months.
What about the dental tourism route?
You may well have seen or heard ads for so-called cheap dental implants in various locations in Europe and beyond. Inevitably, they make a play for the lower prices that they charge. First of all, this doesn’t address the real cost, as you have to factor in flights, accommodations and subsistence, so those attractive savings are suddenly not so attractive.
Also, what happens if you have a problem afterwards? Travelling back to the overseas location could suddenly make your overall cost of treatment very, very expensive.
Then, of course, there are the horror stories we’ve all heard about when things go badly wrong abroad.
