When to get dental implants

With 2020 in full swing already, it might be time to start thinking about scheduling your oral restoration surgery and get dental implants.

Deciding to get dental implants is a big decision and shouldn’t be made lightly or overnight. You need to plan carefully to make sure you have enough time to recover before returning to work.


How Long Do Dental Implants Take?

While the dental implant procedure can take place over several weeks or months, the actual fitting is usually complete in 2-3 visits.

A Milestone for Our Dental Clinics

Are Dental Implants Comfortable?

Most patients’ main concern is whether dental surgery will hurt. We’re often asked questions how painful is the procedure? Or will I feel discomfort after the surgery? Oral surgery can be particularly off-putting if it means a painful procedure and days of agony. But fear not...we’re here to put your mind at rest and answer some of your most common questions around dental implants.


Are Dental Implants More Painful than Dentures?

Prettau Full Arch Implant Solution

Fitting a full-arch implant only takes a day and allows you to permanently replace an entire arch of lower or upper teeth. Unfortunately, not all dental practice uses the best option for the job.

At New Life Teeth, our dental surgeons recommend the Prettau Bridge.


What is the Prettau Bridge?

An Introduction to Zirkonzahn

In 2003, dental expert Enrico Steger founded the South-Tyrol based dental laboratory known as Zirkonzahn. Today, the company has grown to become a leader within the dental industry, with labs in over 100 countries.

Zirkonzahn is, perhaps, best known within the dental world for their implants.


What are Zirkonzahn Implants?


Zirkonzahn implants, unlike ceramic veneers, are made from a unique compound called Zirconium, the most durable compound used within the dentistry industry.

Why are Dental Implants Better than Dentures?

Dentures were historically an easy option for those who’d lost teeth. Who can forget grandfather removing his false teeth at the dinner table?

While perhaps the easiest option, dentures aren’t always the best for your oral hygiene and can result in many future problems.


Dentures vs. Dental Implants


Not only are dentures prone to slip out of place or even fall out while you’re speaking or eating. But, dentures can be uncomfortable if fitted incorrectly and can cause bacterial infections in your gums.

Dental implants are available on the NHS in Scotland, if there is a medical need for the treatment. In most cases, dental implant treatment will only be carried out privately, but it is your dentist’s professional opinion to determine whether the treatment is clinically necessary to protect and maintain good oral health. This is the same with orthodontic treatment, such as braces.
