Think of dental implants and most people would associate the treatment as being expensive, painful and used solely in the replacement of teeth as an alternative to dentures; true once it was very expensive to have done and the recovery period could last anything up to a year, after a long operation involving scalpels and drills. But now in Bath, the use of laser surgery has seen the whole process become incredibly widespread and available to all at a very reasonable price that all of us are capable of paying for. And such refinement in the procedure has not only seen the recovery period afterwards drop dramatically, but the use of an implant is now used for other procedures in the mouth too. One such procedure is the use of the mini-implant that can be fitted in a day to help stabilize dentures and bridges in the mouth and all of this has come because of the advancement of technology over the past few decades through computers and lasers. Lasers especially have seen the demise of the drill and scalpel in the dental world as it can do the job of both with the up-most precision and with very little damage done to the gums and bone- meaning the healing post-op is very minimal; its because of this rise in technology, that most dentists are able to offer the treatment around the city- and at a price that is attractive to us all.
