Nowadays when we think of dental surgeries and dental procedures we conjure images of pristine, gleaming surgeries where hygiene and patient care is top of the agenda. Things such as dental implants were ever so slightly different a few hundred years ago. Barbers and Blacksmiths Back in the thirteenth century if you had problems with your teeth then you’d see a barber or ‘barber-surgeon’. If you were lucky then you might be treated by someone with basic training, the less fortunate would more likely endure treatment that left a lot to be desired. History also refers to blacksmiths carrying out extractions and a whole range of mythical and somewhat dubious cures evolved through folklore. Some rather gruesome instruments, rather more resembling instruments of torture than our modern day equivalents, were used to extract teeth.

If you’re considering dental implants then it’s important to find the right dentist for you. Here are some top questions you should always get the answers to before making a final decision. What are your qualifications? Don’t be embarrassed about asking this! Professional dentists are more than happy to explain their qualifications and training. Ideally, you’re looking for someone who has specialised in dental implants – ask where they trained and how long for. Most dentists are not taught how to do dental implants as part of regular dental training. Alarm bells should start ringing if you don’t get clear answers to these questions.
Technology is incredible, isn’t it? In the not too distant past, getting a filling was a luxury. Today, industry advances have allowed for it to be possible to be seen by a dentist, have your situation evaluated, be measured, and be fitted for your very own, tailor made implants in a single setting — which often doesn’t even involve you having to leave the dentistry centre where you’re being seen. One of the most impressive things about this new dental implant technology is that the patient still receives the same quality of care as they would if they were to be seen by a dentist on several different occasions.
Over the past few decades, the cosmetic dentistry industry has grown exponentially. Several factors have contributed to this phenomenal growth of the industry. These advances themselves have allowed for the development of cosmetic dentistry procedures which look, feel, and act more like natural teeth than ever before.
We all know the feeling. You’ve eaten something a bit tough, had a bit of a tumble, or are starting to feel a little less confident about an old filling, and are experiencing discomfort with your teeth. But how do you determine whether you’re just having some passing discomfort, or if you need more extensive work? In this blog post, we at the Centre for Implant Dentistry in Glasgow are going to talk you through the scenarios in which you should consider getting dental implants.
