Brits with missing teeth could see dental implants a solution.
Brits living with missing teeth or a bridge might like to consider dental implants as a permanent solution to their problem.
Sreenivas Koka, chair of the Mayo Clinic Department of Dental Specialties, noted in order to carry out the procedure, the dentist does not have to disturb the other teeth. Instead, he simply makes an incision in the gum and fixes a screw into the jaw bone, to which he can attach a dental implant.
Ms Koka commented: “If you are missing a single tooth, this allows you to leave the other teeth around it alone.”
She added fixing a dental implant is very straightforward. In fact, she likened it to “drilling a screw into the wall”.
Elsewhere, Santa Cruz-based dentist Rajneesh Sethi recently noted the success rate of dental implants has increased dramatically in recent years, making it the treatment of choice for patients looking for the most aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting results.
