Teeth implants prices will leave you gobsmacked!
A more permanent and comfortable solution than dentures, dental implants can genuinely revolutionise the appearance of your smile. Here’s how.
If you’ve been reading our blog lately, you’ll have spotted that we’re on something of a history buzz right now – and in particular, the history of dentistry.
One of the amazing books that’s come across our radar recently is one called “The Dentist‘s Art’. It was written as far back as 1757 by the dentist to the King of France, Pierre Bourdet. We were fascinated to read that there were no less than TWO theories in existence at that time in terms of how to improve alignment of teeth.
This set us thinking as to how many elements of dentistry go back a long way – but how others are much more contemporary. Dental implants (or teeth implants) for example, have no historical counterpoint, and are very much a product of the imagination of modern dentists. Dentures, on the other hand, go back thousands of years, albeit in a very crude format.
The power of X-Ray technology
As to why this should be, there’s no doubt that dental implants owe a lot to the availability of X-Ray technology, which lets the dentist see what’s happening in the mouth – and assess whether a jawbone is strong enough and healthy enough to accommodate a dental implant.
The implant involves sinking a miniature ‘stake’ quite deep into the jawbone, and an artificial tooth is then placed neatly – and permanently – on top of this stake. It's something like building a fence, in terms of the engineering principles behind the process.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
We would never disparage dentures, as they have been a staple of the dentist’s toolbox for many, many years. But there’s no doubt that dental implants can offer a range of additional benefits, including the following:
And here’s one more benefit that will really surprise you. You might be tempted to think that a new technology like dental implants would cost you a small fortune, but this is very definitely not the case.
Teeth implants prices in Dublin are now more affordable than ever, and here at MyDental, we bring them even further within the range of the average patient by offering our 0% Dental Finance Plan, which lets you spread the cost over three months, six months or nine months.
Would it be cheaper if I went abroad?
If you’ve heard or seen those ads for cheap dental implants in Europe, you might be licking your lips at the notional savings. Be wary of the real cost, however, and also of the problems in getting after-treatment service. Here’s an article from the Irish Dental Association that provides a lot of food for thought – http://www.dentist.ie/latest-news/the-dangers-of-dental-tourism-.6556.html
