Dental implants are not a new idea; in fact, archaeological excavations from ancient Egypt suggest that implant-like restorations have been around for thousands of years. However, dental implants as we know them today are much more recent. They were developed in the 1960s and ever since they have been used in dentistry with great success, facilitating the lives of many people around the world.
At Tiwari Watson Dental Care, we appreciate that some people find dental implants very expensive, but you can rest assured that modern dental implants in Glasgow are more affordable than ever. Moreover, our dental implants, provided by our skilled implant dentists, Joseph Watson and David Chan, are an investment because they do not need replacing every few years.
Dental implants can last for many years, but they are not permanent
At Tiwari Watson Dental Care, we use only high-quality dental implants, which are designed to last for decades provided that you take good care for them. Dental implants in Glasgow are not invulnerable to damage and wear, but they should last for many years if you brush and floss them daily and visit the dentist for regular check-ups.
Are dental implants really expensive?
Dental implants can be expensive. However, if you have them as an adult of a certain age and you take good care of them, it is quite unlikely for them to need replacing during your lifetime. Dental implants are covered by the gums, therefore they are protected. However, they are still susceptible to gum disease and inflammation. Overall, dental implants in Glasgow cost the same or even less than dentures and bridges in the long run because they do not need replacing every few years. You may still need to replace your replacement crowns, but with good care, they should last for many years.
Don’t hesitate to ask
If you think that dental implants are too expensive for your budget, at Tiwari Watson Dental Care we offer a wide variety of implant solutions including implant-supported bridges and dentures, which are less expensive than conventional implants. If you have lost several teeth in a row, it’s more cost-effective to replace them with alternative implant solutions rather than with individual dental implants.
