The World’s Fastest Growing Dental Implants Market
Wanting your smile to look as healthy and attractive as it possibly can is only natural.
If you know that the teeth you're showing every time you smile and talk look straight and clean and true, then you'll be much more relaxed than if you're concerned about their appearance.
Patients visiting a dentist because of dissatisfaction with their smile present with a huge range of different concerns. For some it will be the whiteness of their teeth which is troubling them, a problem which can strike any person no matter how careful they are regarding their dental hygiene regime. Others may want to straighten their teeth, in the knowledge that the latest technology for doing so is markedly less obtrusive and troublesome than the cumbersome metal dental braces they may remember from their childhood.
Quite often, however, it is a single tooth which is troubling the patient. In some cases, indeed, it may be the absence of a tooth, an unattractive gap where a tooth has been knocked out in an accident or been destroyed by decay. Whether it's a gap, or a tooth which has become chipped or damaged, there are varied treatments available which will restore it to its original and flawless state. Some patients may opt to have a dental veneer fitted in London, something which dentists occasionally refer to as 'false nails for the teeth'. A veneer takes the form of an ultra-thin porcelain shell which is made to measure for the tooth and then cemented onto the front. Since the orthodontist will make sure that the veneer has been made to exactly match the colour and shape of the rest of your teeth, it will blend in perfectly naturally and look just like the real thing.
Often, however, if the tooth is missing altogether or not particularly strong and sound, an orthodontist will recommend using dental implants. An dental implant is a treatment which replaces both the root and the tooth, and is therefore a permanent solution to the problem, which, if looked after properly, should last just as long as your own natural teeth.
The first stage of fitting an implant is to attach a titanium pin to the bone of the jaw. Over a period of time this pin actually grafts itself to the bone, becoming an organic part of the body. This means that it is as strong as the original organic root was, with the added bonus of the fact that it won’t become diseased or decay. Once this process is complete, a ceramic artificial tooth will be fitted to the pin, custom made to completely replicate the missing tooth and to match the rest of your teeth perfectly.
Because of the permanent nature of dental implant surgery, it is an incredibly popular treatment, and one which is growing in popularity in several different markets around the world. It has been estimated that countries such as India, Russia Brazil and China will experience a 15% annual rise in the number of people seeking tooth implants in the years up to 2016. As the economies of these countries grow, so the spending power of the population increases, and it’s clear that more and more of those people are choosing to spend their income on ensuring that their smile looks every bit as good as it possibly can. As well as opening up possibilities for the natives of these countries, these growing markets offer opportunities for what might be termed ‘dental tourism’. People who require the treatment but feel they lack the funds to pay for it can opt to travel abroad and access treatment at a price which, even with other factors taken into consideration, is still much more affordable.
As more and more people around the world are realising, having teeth you can be proud of is a major boon in every sphere of your life. Whether you’re socialising or working, the knowledge that your smile won’t let you down will enable you to fully express yourself at all times.
