Home  /  Implants - Dental News  /  We’ve taken a bite out of teeth implants prices.

If you're missing a tooth or two and think you're destined for dentures, here’s an option that will leave you smiling even brighter.

We like our sport here at MyDental. Which is why we were recently watching some soccer action from God-knows-where at a very un-Godly hour of the morning.

As the game came to an end and the players shook hands on the pitch, one of them caught our eye. He took out a mouthguard – which is not uncommon – but then amazed us by taking out a denture!

Why were we so amazed? Well simply because the traditional denture option has been very much overtaken by the newer technology of dental implants – or teeth implants as they are sometimes known.

What’s a dental implant?

Let’s suppose, for a minute, that you wanted to build a fence in your garden. You don’t actually hammer the fence into the ground – instead, you start the process by inserting stakes into the earth, then fixing the fence onto these stakes.

That’s a very good analogy for how dental implants work. First of all, your MyDentaldentist inserts a tiny stake deep into your jawbone. Then, he simply fixes a replacement tooth onto this stake, providing a solution that is highly stable and robust.

What are the main benefits of implants?

It’s not hard to see why implants have wowed the general population. They offer a whole host of benefits over the traditional denture, including the following:

  • They simply won’t slip out of place, as dentures are sometimes prone to do. This can be hugely important in terms of the social confidence of the wearer. There’s nothing worse than feeling dentures move when laughing, talking or eating.

  • They’re extremely comfortable to wear. Because of the way the implant is structured, it behaves exactly like a normal tooth. Most of our patients tell us that they forget they’re wearing one after a few days of treatment.

  • They’re way more convenient when it comes to cleaning them. You simply brush them as you brush your other teeth, so there’s no need to take them out at night – as with dentures.
  • They’re virtually impossible to spot, so nobody will know you're wearing one. Your dentist can shape the replacement tooth so that it’s exactly like the old tooth, and can even colour it to match your current teeth.

  • You might be inclined to think that a new form of dental technology would be very expensive, but this is definitely not the case. Teeth implants prices in Dublin are way more affordable than you probably thought. And remember that you can choose to spread the cost – with our 0% Dental Plan – over three, six or nine motnths.

What about cheap overseas treatment?

The quality of dental implants is first class in Ireland, and the prices are also very competitive. So why would you be wooed into travelling abroad for so-called cheap dental implants that you see advertised in the press on or TV.

There are myriad risks when you go down the dental tourism route. But don't take our word for it- check out the following article on the website of the Irish Dental Assocation – http://www.dentist.ie/latest-news/the-dangers-of-dental-tourism-.6556.html
