2016 could be the year to consider dental implants.
Implants are the brilliant, contemporary form of treatment for the problem of missing teeth. Here’s what you need to know.
Much has been made of why Enda has postponed the election until the last possible timeframe under the constitution. The most likely anser to this is that, with each passing month, the economy has grown stronger, there are more people back at work, and we tend to have a few extra bob rattling around in our pockets.
So why are we talking about this? Well, very simply, we’d like to suggest that for people who may have been putting implants on the long finger, then 2016 could well be the year to finally do something about waving goodbye to those gaps in your smile.
Dental implants cost less and less these days, as the process becomes mor e and more streamlined in modern surgeries such as MyDental. Then there;s the fact that you can spread the cost over three to nine months with our 0% Dental Finance Plan, so there’s no need tooay for all of your treatment at once.
So when you add all those factors to an improving economy, you have to ask yourself if this is the year that you’ll eventually call in to us and get a treatment plan to address those missing teeth.
The benefits of implants
Unlike dentures, dental implants don't slip out of place, as they're fixed to your jawbone with a titanium screw. So there’s never any chance of being embrrrassed in public due to slippages.
Another benefit is that implants are way more comfortable than dentures. Time and time again, in fact, we hear from our patients that they soon forget they're even wearing them.
Implants are also highly effective in terms of restoring the full range of functionality of missing teeth. In other words, you can eat and chew anything you want – without having to worry that your implant will cave in under the pressure.
Another benefit is that they're very discreet. Your dentist colours and pares them so that they fit in perfectly with your existing teeth, so there;s a very natural look when your dentist is finished his work.
It’s also worth noting tht when it comes to dental implants Dublin is a very good place to live, as it offers you no end of choice of great dentists – including MyDental here at Bath Avenue.
This means that there’s absolutely no reason to consider the dental tourism route, which some Irish consumers seem to think represents value for money. Remember, however, that you have to look at the REAL cost of treatment, i.e. adding in the cost of meals, hotels and your air fare.
