Approaching the topic
In the past, ideas of cosmetic changes to the body were considered to be for the wealthier members of society, such as celebrities and billionaires. Luckily, with advances within the dental world both in knowledge and equipment combined with society’s need to be cosmetically appealing, the rise of affordable cosmetic dentistry took hold. From teeth-whitening treatments to rejuvenated smiles, our smiles can be transformed within a short period of time and at an affordable cost that can be achieved in a variety of ways.
For those seeking to replace the gaps within their smile or create a sturdier base for their false teeth, opening up a conversation with our dentist in Glasgow is the way forward. Our dental team will be able to discuss your options, discover which is the more suitable option for your individual case and assist you in making your overall plan. The first step for you though is to approach the subject with our team.
What are implants?
An implant is a small, titanium screw or post that can be surgically implanted into the jaw bone to create a long-lasting and sturdy artificial root for a tooth. This simple but highly effective implant not only creates a firm post for a replacement tooth but also encourages the surrounding jaw bone to regenerate and essentially cement the implant into place. This is a simple but highly effective process of replacing a tooth.
If you think this may suit you, then open up a discussion with our dentist in Glasgow to get the process moving.
A painful surgical procedure?
All too often, people associate trips to the dental practice as something out of a horror movie, whether it be due to an unfortunate experience of their own or something they have heard or fictionally seen in the past. Either way, it is good to know that, as with all things, knowledge and equipment within the dental world have advanced as have the techniques. So, what does this mean?
When facing a procedure, such as dental implants, you can rest assured that the surrounding area will be numbed using a general anaesthetic. During and after the process, minimal discomfort may be apparent, but your day-to-day life should not be affected. For those who may feel differently, having a chat with our dentist in Glasgow can put your mind at ease, and if needs be, another solution can be created.
By keeping communication flowing between you and our dental team, we can ensure that we all work with the same information, which will ensure that the best outcome is achieved.
Knowledge at a cost?
As with all dental treatments and procedures, it is first necessary to attend a consultation to ensure that all aspects of the process are understood and to discover whether the treatment is suitable for your needs. For this reason, we ensure that our consultation remains free of charge so that we can ensure you are fully informed of the process before making any life-changing decisions.
