Fitting dental implants with precision

Published on by . Categories under Dental Implants. Total of no comments in the discussion.

Dental implants are prostheses that provide natural-looking alternatives to your original teeth, should you lose your own, or have them removed. Currently they are fitted with precision by dentists who have had special implant placing training, but in the future you might be relying on technology to place your implants.

Chinese scientists have developed a robot dentist which is reported to be able to fit dental implants on customers without any human involvement in the procedure. It is said to be a more accurate way to place implants. Also, given that a survey estimated that there are over 400 million patients in Xian province alone who need teeth, robot dentists could be a viable answer to the Chinese dentist shortage.

However, which would you prefer? Who would you rather have fitting your replacement teeth? A robot dentist, or one of our highly experienced York dental implant expert dentists? Sometimes the human touch is preferred. You’ll be able to have a real conversation with us about what the implant fitting procedure entails, ask us any questions and even confess any fears you may have, with a view to us addressing them.

Our team has had full training in working with nervous patients because we appreciate that dental fear does exist. We want you to be comfortable in our treatment rooms, as well as confident that we are supporting you and providing you with the best possible service.

The benefits of dental implants

Having an implant fitted is an invasive procedure because we must open the gum to fit the titanium root. However, it’s also a very standard procedure. It’s done quickly and thanks to local anaesthetic, you won’t feel a thing. Once you’ve had the crown placed, few people will realise that your teeth are not natural. You’ll be able to smile with confidence, feel happier about your facial appearance, speak more clearly and chew your food in comfort.

Additionally, because a jawbone that is not stimulated by tooth or implant roots can begin to atrophy, you can prevent your face from developing the ‘caved in’ look we often associate with traditional denture wearers; a look which can age you prematurely.

If you are missing more than one tooth, we can fix a bridge of teeth into your mouth using an implant at each end to secure it in place. A full mouth of replacement teeth can be provided by fitting as few as 4 to 6 dental implants.

If you’d like a custom-made dental implant fitted with precision  by one of our extensively trained York-based dentists, please give us a call to book your consultation with us. We’ll be able to talk you through the process in a way that currently a robot can’t! We look forward to meeting you and showing you just how great you’ll look with implants fitted.

Why Technology in our Industry is Focusing on Dental Implants

Published on by . Categories under Dental Implants, Implants. Total of no comments in the discussion.

According to Market Research Future (MRMF) the dental implant market is forecast to grow by 4.6% by 2022. This means that more and more people are having dental implants fitted.

Does that mean more people than ever are losing their teeth? We certainly all still seem to be eating a lot of sugar, but more of us then ever are visiting the dentist regularly. It seems to be more likely that rather than there being an increase in people losing their teeth (although the UK does have an ageing population), there is an increase in people realising the benefits implants can provide. Additionally dental finance plans are becoming commonplace, making implants affordable to everyone.

Instead, they are fixed permanently into your jaw via a titanium root. Here at our York dental practice, we fit dental implants with great success.
