Putting in dental implants ‘can have a massive impact on patients’

Fri

Dental implants are not as new a phenomena as people may think.Dental implants can positively impact upon people's lives, it has been said.

Speaking to the Northern Echo, dentist Mike Heads explained dental implants can stimulate jaw bone growth, improve the look of a face and help protect other teeth.

Poorly maintained teeth can affect speech and individuals may also have a lack of confidence.

The dentist said that while many Britons may think dental implants are relatively new, they came to the fore in the USA in the 80s.

He told the newspaper: "The great thing about implants is that you are not pratting about doing a few fillings."

Dr Heads became aware of the potential of dental implants when he was a guest of the American Dental Association after he won a British Dental Association award.

US dentist Dr Daniel Pittman recently told the Dothan Eagle that dental implants were "the closest thing to natural teeth you can get".

Dental implants ‘are not painful or expensive’

Thu

Pain or being left out of pocket should not be the result of dental implants.A dentist has spoken out to dispel some of the common myths surrounding dental implants that might be putting patients off having them.

Dr Amarik Singh, who has a practice in Chicago and has put in more than 6,000 implants during his career, told Health News that many people mistakenly think they will be painful or very expensive.

He also said some patients opt not to have the procedure because they think it is too new, when the reality is that over 40 years' experience has gone into perfecting it.

"With state-of-the-art computer imaging and other sophisticated tools currently in our possession, we get the dental implants done in a day without even cutting open the gums," Dr Singh pointed out.

This comes after dentist Dr John Miller told the Dothan Eagle that dental implants are far superior to dentures and are the closest thing patients can get to real teeth.
