Missing one or more teeth? Change your life with dental implantsThursday, 13th June, 2019
A sudden injury or years of tooth decay could lead to your worst case scenario, missing one, a couple or a full set of teeth, but with the latest developments in dentistry, you are not consigned to a gummy mouth for the rest of your life.
Thanks to the creation of artificial teeth, people are reclaiming their lives back with dentures, bridges, and recently, dental implants. You can now enjoy what you love doing - socialising, or eating your favourite food, without worrying about other people's judgement of your absent canines or molars.
Our team at Navan Dental want to boost your smile and confidence with our state-of-the-art restorations, which are affordable, long-lasting and comfortable.
What are my options?
More and more, people are opting for dental implants Navan as an alternative to traditional methods like dentures or bridges. The popular procedure is revolutionary because it replaces the tooth at the root, using a titanium screw that is drilled directly into the jawbone.
Titanium is a metal alloy often used in surgical procedures because the body does not reject it. Therefore, with dental implantology, the mouth identifies the screw as part of the body organism, and through a biological process called osseointegration, we embed the implant along with the crown it holds into the jaw.
The benefits include a tooth that works and functions like a real one. You can talk, without concerns about your teeth slipping out or make noises, keep to a normal eating and brushing routine, and eat the food you like without risking chipping or cracking the sturdy and durable porcelain.
Is the procedure expensive?
The initial costs of implantology are known to be expensive when compared to other treatments. However, consider your return on the investment: a life without restrictions.
If you are on the fence about getting a dental implant Navan, we suggest you weigh up the pros and cons to help you make your decision. Factors you should be made aware of are that these replacement teeth, if looked after correctly, can last a lifetime. We cannot say the same about dentures and bridges, which become damaged over time and need replacing every five or so years. An implant also looks like a natural tooth in shape and colour, something to note when you hear what people complain about the most when it comes to dental restoration: that the artificial tooth looks "false".
Our clinic accepts patients with medical aid cards (Irish NHS) to make your life easier, which means you can rest easy knowing the cost of your treatment is covered.
Facts about implants that may surprise you.
Not only do they improve your appearance, but they are also good for your health too. These health benefits include preventing cavities from forming and actually strengthening your jaw.
This is something which other replacement teeth do not do, they can actually weaken the muscles in your jaw, a condition that results in eventual bone deterioration.
'How' do you ask? As previously mentioned, implants are embedded in the jawbone and work like a natural tooth would, which includes putting pressure on and stimulating the underneath tissue as you chew, eat and talk, which leads to an exercised and strong jaw.
If you are embarrassed about missing teeth, find comfort in the fact that losing teeth is common as you age, and that there are ways you can restore them to their former glory, without others knowing that they are fake.« Back
