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:
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
