It is very easy for people to think that tooth loss is just a step away from dentures, old age and an early grave. But on the market right now is a treatment that will see you rolling back the years in no time- the dental implant.
This Bobby-dazzler has been around for decades although having the treatment in the early years was very exclusive, very expensive and damned painful and you could spend up to a year recovering from it. Not anymore. Such has been the advancement in dental technology that the treatment has become a stroll in the park and a lot of that is down to pin-point laser surgery- it is slick, does minimal damage to the gum tissue and accurate, meaning that you can have one fitted these days in a matter of hours; recovery has also been aided by radically new healing techniques.
Once the implant has been located into the jaw bone and healed, then you can pretty much attach anything you like to it as it probably stronger than the original root. It can help in replacing the odd tooth loss or total tooth loss and the freedom it allows the patient is unbelievable. Ironically, implants are used to help anchor dentures in place as well as anchoring dental bridges as well.
Prices vary but the essential element here is that is no longer the domain of the rich and famous- this treatment is here in Leeds, available to all and affordable as well. The dental implant is thankfully, here to stay.
