All about dental implantsTuesday, 4th June, 2019
Dental implants have been around for decades and are a tried and tested way to replace missing teeth. The implant is a small metal screw or post that is inserted in the jawbone. Navan Dental has seen success providing patients with dental implants in Navan, improving their smiles and giving them their confidence back.
So if you need dental implants in Navan, let our dentists at Navan Dental help you access the many benefits this treatment provides.
Benefits of implants
Compared with other treatments for replacing teeth, dental implants in Navan are the most secure and long lasting. The stability they offer means that patients can eat, drink and speak just the way that they usually do, without worrying that the implants are going to move or become loose. Tough and chewy foods are no longer off the menu. They're easy to look after too as all you need to do is brush your teeth as usual and keep up with your regular dental check-ups and hygienist cleanings.
What's involved in getting dental implants?
It takes a series of appointments to get your dental implants in Navan:
- the first step is for one of our dentists to complete an assessment and check if any initial treatment is needed to ensure your oral health is in good condition before implant surgery
- during a minor oral surgery, a hole is carefully made into the jawbone and the implant placed within it, after which a period of healing is needed for the implant to integrate with the jawbone
- on your return visit an abutment is added, which is an attachment that joins the implant to your artificial tooth or teeth
- your artificial tooth or teeth are then attached to the implant and you get back to smiling with confidence and eating without worry.
Though it's more costly to get an implant than dentures or bridges, our patients find that the long-term benefits make it worthwhile, as dental implants can last for decades, if not a lifetime with good dental care.
What's more, we offer an affordable payment plan, so that you can spread out the costs of your dental implants.« Back
