Losing teeth may be a rite of passage as a child but nobody wants to lose a tooth as an adult. The impact on your smile can really knock your confidence. So, when you lose or chip a tooth, it can feel quite devastating. There is the pain and discomfort caused from the initial damage as well as the far-reaching consequences on your appearance and dental health. You may wonder how to replace your tooth. Have you ever considered finding a clinic to provide dental implants in Glasgow?

A dental implant is a small metal rod that gets put into your jawbone where your tooth used to be. This is left in for between 6 to 6 months and, during this time, the implant bonds with the jawbone. This process is called osseointegration. When you return for your next appointment, one of our dentists will add an attachment, called an abutment, to the implant. This will be the fixing for the artificial tooth.
There are different implants available to suit a variety of needs. Single dental implants can replace one missing tooth but can also be used to support multiple missing teeth in a row, with one dental implant providing a secure foundation for up to 3 teeth. Some dental implant procedures allow an entire jaw of teeth to be supported on as little as 4 dental implants. It is also possible to get implant treatment in a single day, with temporary crowns attached.
