Dental emergencies can strike at any point. You can slip and fall, bite into an especially hard cookie, and before you know it, you’ve chipped or broken a tooth. In situations like this, it’s understandable and even medically sound to have the breakage or chip addressed before it turns into a long-term issue.
Dental implants look and feel natural
If you have broken or chipped a tooth and want a solution right away, then dental implants are an excellent option. A dental implant is a titanium frame which is inserted into the jawbone under your gums, replacing a damaged natural tooth root. This new titanium root then allows dental surgeons to attach a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants are popular because they look and feel just like one of your natural teeth. This ensures that you don’t have to feel self-conscious about a visible replacement tooth, but instead can feel more confident about your smile than ever.
Dental implants can be inserted quickly and easily
Another advantage of dental implants is that thanks to new breakthroughs in dental technology, they can be inserted faster than ever, meaning that you don’t have to wait to get your emergency dealt with. At the Centre for Implant Dentistry in Glasgow, we offer all of the procedures involved in dental implant surgery under one roof, which streamlines the process. Additionally, our streamlined set-up allows for our well-respected “teeth in a day” process, where, thanks to the Smartfix technology, you can be seen by a dentist, have your situation assessed, and be fitted with your dental implants all in a single setting.
Dental implants are a long-term solution
Dental implants are designed to be a long-term solution, not a short-term fix. They’re made to be durable and to protect your original teeth. The substance that they’re made out is impervious to decay, which means that you don’t have to go to the dentist to get extensive check-ups every few months. Instead, you just take care of your new teeth as you would your ordinary teeth. When you opt to undergo dental implant surgery, you’re deciding upon a long-term solution, and ensuring that your teeth are going to continue to be protected.
