Since the day they were first invented, dental implants have been a very good way to get over the problem of tooth loss. But they were never easy to do in the early days because the very few people performing the procedure- they had the theory, but were blighted with the tools they could use, which meant that it could be a very lengthy recovery period before the new crowns could be attached to them. However, it did pave the way for something better to come along and refine it, and this happened when computers and lasers arrived into the dental surgeries around the city of Leeds. The theory hasn’t changed, putting a titanium rod into the jawbone, but the precision and ease with which it is done now has made this as common as having a root canal done. You can have one fitted in hours and because there is limited damage done to the jaw and the surrounding gum tissue, plus wonderful healing agents, it means you can have a crown attached within a couple of days of the implant being fitted. All of these improvements to the treatment have meant that it has become cheap to have done and that now, it is within the reach of everyone.
