Dental implants are great for some people to use and have made a difference to many lives. Dentists will recommend this to patients when they are unable or don’t want to use dentures. Most dentists’ clinics do this procedure, but there are different types of surgery available, depending on what exactly you need done. The cost of the whole procedure depends on what you have done, but the cost may differ also depending where in the country you are. For example, Durban clinics may charge more than Gauteng ones and Cape Town may be more expensive then both. You just have to call around for prices.
If you don’t want dentures as they are removable and want something permanent like your original teeth, then dental implants are definitely something you should look into. There should be more than one clinic in your city, so if you are in Cape Town and want the surgery done you should call the practices that offer this and see which ones offers it at a more affordable price. The same thing applies to those in Durban and Gauteng; find the most affordable clinic where different types of implants are done and you can take it from there.
There are a few different types of implants and some of them include:
- Transosseous Implant
- Root-Form Titanium Implant
- Ramus-Frame Implant
- Sub-Periosteal Implant
- Plate-Form Implant
Different people will make use of different implant surgeries as the dentist has to find the right one for them. As the implants are permanent, your dentist will decide what is best for you, but it won’t hurt for you to do some research and find out what is available and how it works. Dental implants aren’t for everyone, but if you think you need a surgery like this one then it will be best for you to visit your dentist and get their opinion on the matter.
