What are dental implants
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are a cosmetic dentistry solution used for replacing single or multiple missing teeth. Read on to discover the different types of dental implants and how instasmile clip-on veneers could be a great non-surgical alternative.
How do dental implants work?
Dental implants offer a solution to replacing missing teeth through a surgical procedure. They are usually made of titanium and feature an internal screw which then holds a false tooth (or teeth) in place in your mouth.
This screw is surgically positioned into the jawbone beyond your gums, and a replacement tooth is then mounted on to the end of it. The new implant needs to then fuse to the surrounding jaw bone. This process varies dramatically and can take anywhere between four weeks to six months.
How long do dental implants take?
Depending on the fusion of your implant with your jaw bone, the process chosen by your dentist and the amount of work required, dental implants can take between three to nine months to complete. In some cases they can take up to twelve months.
Instasmile offers a modern, unique alternative to all types of dental implant, that requires no surgery, doesn’t put an pressure on the bone or jaw, and can cover up to 8 missing teeth per top or bottom set.
How much are dental implants?
The price of dental implants does vary. If you’re seriously considering going through the cost and invasiveness it is worth investing wisely and choosing the best dental implants you can afford. The average cost of dental implants ranges between an eye-watering £2,000 and £6,000 per tooth.
