Dental implants are becoming a popular option for South Lanarkshire patients; are you thinking of taking the plunge too?

Why are dental implants popular with South Lanarkshire patients?

You may have heard of dental implants and you may be wondering if they are the right option for you. Here is a quick guide to what they are:

  • They are a permanent and fixed alternative to treatment options such as dentures
  • A titanium post is fitted into the jaw bone and the ceramic teeth are fitted to this post
  • It is a treatment option that works best when one or a few teeth are being replaced
  • The ceramic teeth also need the strength of the surrounding natural teeth to remain firmly in position
  • Although people think they are a recent invention, they have been a treatment option for around 20 years
  • Only in recent years, with advances in technology and training of dentists have dental implants become a viable option, especially in terms of cost to South Lanarkshire patients
  • Providing you look after them well – that is, keep the ceramic teeth and the gum scrupulously clean – they will last a lifetime
  • They are a suitable option for most South Lanarkshire patients, providing general health is good; there are also some instances when medication may interfere with the healing process
