For some people in Bristol, knowing all about your treatments beforehand can help you to put your mind at rest and drive you to make informed decisions about your choices, especially when it seems, on paper, quite a complex procedure such as having dental implants put in. You will want to know how long it takes, if it is dangerous, if you will suffer pain, how you need to recover from it and most important of all, how it will benefit you in the future. Today’s techniques of placing an implant are very simple: a laser makes a tiny hole in your gums and jawbone; followed by the placement of a small titanium spike into the jaw. It does sound complex, but a laser is extremely slick and causes so little damage, that it makes healing of the gums very quick afterwards. There will be some discomfort after and of course, your body will need time to adjust to having a foreign invasion such as this, but you should try to see past all of this and look to the future. Dental implants are an amazing way to overcome tooth loss: they are very strong and robust, more than the original root ever was, plus they are more resistant to infection; your implant will be with you for life.
