Does it Hurt?

Dental Implant ModelThis is the big question everyone wants to know the answer to before they go for dental implants in Northern Ireland. The answer is, yes, a bit. But the pain is nothing that can’t be handled with some over-the-counter medication. And it’s nothing compared to the benefits of this way of replacing lost teeth, which is why so many people are having dental implants.

Despite the fact that dental implants in Northern Ireland have been available for quite some time, not everyone has heard of them.

Then, when faced with having to replace those teeth, they want to know all they can about a treatment that offers them back the full functionality of their teeth.

Finding the right implant dental practice

It’s worth looking around for the right practice for this because dental implants in Northern Ireland is booming business for dentists and some have more experience than others. Bearing in mind that inserting dental implants requires being able to drill into the jawbone while avoiding blood vessels and nerves, it’s a good idea to find a dentist who has completed at least several hundred, if not thousands, of implant surgeries. There are also dental awards for implantology, so keep an eye out for those too.

Finding the right dental implants

Because this is such a booming business, it’s also important to make sure that the dental implants the surgeon is using are tried, tested and reliable. Two brands that have been around since implants began are Nobel Biocare and Straumann. Cheaper implant surgery could be using cheaper implants, or even copies, so it’s a good idea to ask about this, or check the websites to see what brands are listed. A really good dental implant should last for at least 15 years. It could last for decades, maybe even for the rest of the patient’s life.

The best approach is to shop around and ask lots of questions.
