Newspapers have reported recently that a robot dentist has been developed in China. It is designed to place dental implants. The reason for this technology is a dentist shortage in the Xian province, with millions of people waiting to have an implant fitted.
Luckily here, near Swindon, we have no such dentist shortage. We fit dental implants at our dental practice every day and will happily book a consultation with you to give you the opportunity to ask any questions you might have.
The benefits of dental implants
Dental implants are effective, natural-looking replacement teeth that once fitted, are not removed. Many customers are still enjoying the benefits of their dental implants 30 years later.
When they are fitted, dental implants are placed on the jawbone to stimulate osseointegration. This fusion of the titanium root of the implant with the natural jawbone means that when the crown is cemented onto the top of the implant it has a very firm and stable anchor.
You’ll be able to use your implant to help you eat comfortably and speak clearly. It will prevent your remaining teeth from shifting around in your mouth and additionally it will stimulate your jawbone in a similar manner to natural tooth roots. This stimulation should keep your jaw bone healthy and prevent it from deteriorating once you’ve lost a tooth.
