A writer has said that he has been delighted by how his dental implant treatment has turned out.
Tim Jepson of the Telegraph said he opted to have one fitted after losing a molar when he bit into a prune.
He explained that he went for this kind of treatment over a bridge because dental implants are strong, reliable and durable and do not compromise any surrounding teeth.
The fitting of the titanium equipment and the mock tooth took around 40 minutes and Mr Jepson insisted that he didn't feel a thing.
"I am delighted with my implant. I can't feel it, it's rock solid and the crown is better-looking than the tooth that was there before," he concluded, urging anyone who has been wondering about whether or not to have implants to "bite the bullet".
WorlDental.org – the website of Dental Health magazine – recently said that people who are struggling as a result of age-related tooth loss could benefit from having dental implants.
