What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed carefully into the jaw bone where it heals and fuses with the jaw itself.  Once it has fused or is secure the implant can be used to secure a single tooth, a dental bridge (several teeth) or when enough implants are placed it can be used to secure a denture or full mouth of teeth.  At The Berkeley clinic we only use the most advanced implants and techniques available give you the patient the best result possible.

Smile With Confidence – Explained

For a long time people with missing teeth only had two dental treatment options available: a dental bridge or dentures. Today the Berkeley Clinic in Glasgow can offer you an advanced dental implant treatment which is the closest option to restoring your own natural teeth.

Implants offer better fitting, considering that the dimensions and shape of teeth and jawbone vary from individual to individual. They also can be used as a replacement for one or more teeth. Dental implants Glasgow are less difficult in terms of maintenance when compared to traditional dentures.

Since dental implants Glasgow treatment are made of titanium they are long lasting. The implants also feel more natural than dentures, enabling ease in chewing and swallowing. They fuse with the bones in the oral cavity, making their installation more or less permanent. Once the replacement teeth are in place, tinted to a shade matching natural teeth, they are nearly impossible to tell apart from natural teeth.

Titanium implants can also help save surrounding, natural teeth, by giving a firmer support to teeth. Many patients feel that replacement dentures fixed on titanium implants are easier to clean, since they can be brushed and flossed like natural teeth.

Our clinical team treats patients from all over the country including Glasgow, Edinburgh, Stirling, Falkirk, Dundee, Aberdeen, Ayr and London as well as Europe and further afield. If you are tired of hiding your smile and would like to laugh feeling safe and confident dental implant treatment could be the right alternative for you.

What's the process with a dental implants Glasgow Clinic?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed in the jawbone. This is the foundation used to place a crown or bridge above the gum line. Dental implants are considered to be the Gold Standard option when replacing missing teeth. There are no other options available that give the same stability, longevity or aesthetically pleasing results as implants.

What happens after the dental implant is placed?

Following an appropriate healing period, the implant fuses to the bone in a process known as 'Osseointegration'. Thereafter, the teeth implant can be restored by attaching a new tooth crown or a dental bridge. Alternatively, two or more teeth implants can be used to hold dentures tight during eating and speaking. The Berkeley Clinic in Glasgow can offer you the best dental implant treatment and care. Our clinical team is highly experienced in the field and is using the most advanced digital technologies including CEREC 3D, CEREC Omnicam and CT scan.

Are you eligible for a dental implant treatment?

Normally, anyone who is capable of undergoing oral surgery or tooth extraction procedure can get a dental implant placed. It is important to have good oral hygiene and healthy gums. Any tooth decay, gingivitis or gum problems need to be addressed before the implants are placed to give the best chance of success. Having a healthy mouth is important because it helps to avoid any dental infections and more serious complications. So what can our dental care team do for you? If you have any oral health problems our dental hygienists will help you to treat them before the surgery.

Is the dental implant procedure painful?

There is no pain when having a tooth implant placed because lots of numbing is done before the treatment starts. The procedure is carried out using local anaesthetic so we can assure you that there is no pain at the time of the surgery.

After your appointment, you may feel a little swollen or tender for a few days afterwards. So we would advise to avoid any significant social engagements when choosing a date for a dental implant procedure.

Our award winning dentist, Dr Mike Gow, has been featured on a BBC documentary where the implants were placed using merely dental hypnosis and no anaesthetic at all. Click here and watch a short video of Dr Mike Gow in action.
