Is your smile not doing you any favours? Are you fed up of trying to hide your teeth? At Este, we hear this common complaint all the time so we understand – it’s no fun when you don’t feel your best. Fortunately, thanks to advances in cosmetic dentistry, you no longer have to put up with bad teeth.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are, quite simply, artificial tooth roots. They are small titanium posts that are implanted into your jawbone and then used as a foundation for either permanent or (less commonly) removable dental implants. You can have a full set of dental implants, or simply replace one tooth – or a few.
Once the gum has healed around the post, the artificial tooth – or crown – can be fixed to a small connector post that will have been fixed to your implant. It’s a process that involves various appointments over a matter of months from start to finish, but once you’ve completed the treatment you’ll have a whole new smile to be proud of.
How long does a Dental Implant Procedure take?
The duration of your dental implant surgery is specific to you, and depends on the number of dental implants you are having. As a general rule, it usually takes around 1-2 hours to fit one titanium dental implant.
At Este we use our sister clinic in Istanbul for our dental implants in Turkey. The surgeons here are some of the best in the world and the technology used is the most advanced and yet they are still able to offer affordable dental implants that are both impressive and expertly constructed.
We appreciate that choosing to have your dental implants abroad is a big decision. However, if you’re looking to keep your dental implant cost down, it’s a great option as a dental implants Turkey package costs considerably less than a similar treatment in the UK. Plus, you can combine your trip with a little sightseeing, too.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
When you choose a dental implant specialist to perform your procedure, you will be opening the gateway to a life full of benefits. These include:
- Better oral health – dental implants are easy to clean and maintain, plus individual implants ensure access between teeth is easy.
- Eating is easier – with dental implants in place you can enjoy all your favourite foods without the hassle or embarrassment of dentures.
- A confidence boost – a new set of dental implants will make you look and feel better about yourself, helping you improve your confidence and feel good about life again.
- More comfort – once your dental implants are fitted you can expect them to feel just like your normal teeth.
- Better speech – wave goodbye to sliding dentures, or gaps that make you lisp – with dental implants your speech will be instantly improved and again, your confidence will be boosted.
Who can get Dental Implants?
You may have seen celebrities with dental implants and now you’re wondering whether the dental implant route is right for you. It can be a great choice for anyone who’s suffered tooth loss due to injury, decay, or periodontal disease, or anyone who’s fed up with their dentures.
However if you’re asking, ‘can you have dental implants with gum disease?’ then the answer is ‘no’. For dental implants to be successful you need to have healthy gums because the gum needs to mould and heal around the implant. We appreciate this is bad news if you suffer from bad gum health, and we know many people ask, ‘can you have dental implants with receding gums?’ but, again, the answer is negative.
If you want to find out whether you’re suitable for dental implant surgery, speak to your dentist in the first instance. You may be advised to consider alternatives to dental implants, and you could look at dental bridge vs implant information as that may be better suited to your needs.
