What are Dental Implants and why may I choose to undergo dental implants in Stoke-On-Trent?
Dental implants are essentially replica teeth that are inserted within the skull. Dental implants consist of three aspects, one of which is the ‘base’. The base of the dental implant is a small titanium screw that is inserted into the jaw bone, in order to replicate the original and natural root of the tooth. The abutment (also commonly referred to as the ‘connector’ is the part of the dental implant that connects the root of the replica tooth as well as the porcelain crown.
What is a porcelain crown?
A porcelain crown is the ‘tooth looking part’ of the Dental Implant in Stoke-On-Trent.The porcelain crown is completely unique to each individual, and the shade and shape of their surrounding teeth. Porcelain crowns are hardly recognisable in comparison to a patient's surrounding and natural teeth. They feel and look like natural teeth, and patients will barely recognise the difference between their dental implants and their natural teeth.
Is it painful to get dental implants in Stoke-On-Trent?
Many patients may feel nervous about undergoing this form of dental treatment, and may fear they are going to experience a level of discomfort or even pain. Patients do not need to be concerned about any pain or discomfort, as they will be given a local form of anesthetic whilst ensuring the dental treatment.
Do dental implants in Stoke-On-Trent require an advanced dental hygiene routine?
Many patients may feel reluctant to undergo this form of dental procedure as they may feel that the after-care regime is of a high maintenance, however this is not necessarily the case. Patients who have undergone dental implants may not require any additional dental appointments, after the healing process has been completed. Patients who have received one or even several dental implants within the mouth may only need their regular dental check-ups, in the same way as patients without dental implants have routine check-ups.
Do I have to pay for my dental implants upfront?
No! Some patients may avoid receiving dental implants if they believe they will receive a large bill at the end of the treatment, however this is not the case. We offer a unique finance plan at our dental clinic, meaning that patients do not have to pay for their dental implants upfront, they can however pay monthly, at a zero percent rate.
