Dental implants in Glasgow offer a wide range of options for those who have lost teeth. Whether you’ve knocked out a single tooth, lost a few in a row, got odd ones missing here and there, need a whole new arch or a full set, at Tiwari Watson Dental Care, we can help.
From one missing tooth to stabilising dentures, dental implants in Glasgow give you back full chewing power. Our implant dentists, Joseph Watson and David Chan, are both highly experienced clinicians with a track record in successfully treating patients for dental implants in Glasgow.
How do dental implants in Glasgow work?
The reason implants work so well is because they are made of titanium, which is biocompatible. This means that it bonds with the natural structures of the body so well that it becomes part of it. Blood vessels and bone tissue grow around the implant, so it becomes as secure as a natural tooth root.
For this to work successfully, you need to have a certain level of density in your jawbone. If you need your jawbone building up, our implant surgeon may recommend that you have a bone graft or sinus lift.
The implants also need time to heal to secure them in place. This takes anything from a few weeks to a few months, depending on your overall health and lifestyle. People with diabetes and smokers, for example, take longer to heal from surgery.
You’ll need to take care of your implants during this time and keep to a restricted diet, especially during the first few weeks. Our implant dentist will advise you on this during the treatment planning phase.
Why have dental implants in Glasgow?
Implants shore up the structure of the face, preventing it from sagging and encouraging the jawbone to regrow around the implant site.
And, because once they are healed, implants are so secure, they act just like natural teeth and you can eat whatever you like again.
