As compared to other parts of the body, we pay the least amount of attention to our teeth till we get alarming signals. After a visit to the Dentist which is always long overdue in any case, we promise ourselves to be more particular in future but once we get busy in our daily activities we forget about it all over again.Due to this careless attitude, we ruin a few teeth. But thanks to our Dental Surgeons and technology, they have devised ways to cure and fix our teeth and restore our smiles. Dental Implants are a blessing in disguise where missing tooth/teeth are replaced so perfectly that no one can ever make out the difference. Implants help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration which occurs when teeth are missing.
Dental Implants are the most rapidly growing field in dentistry today. Similar to a hip replacement, dental implants are made from surgical grade titanium. This dental implant system is thought by many to be the finest in the world.
The implants are tiny titanium posts, which are inserted into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes. They are then surgically placed into the jaw bone. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for the artificial teeth. Then Small posts are attached to the implant, which protrude through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.
In most cases, the placement of dental implants involves one surgical procedure. First, implants are placed within your jawbone. For 6-12 weeks following surgery, the implants bond with the jawbone. The entire procedure usually takes two to six months. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life.
In India, we can boast highly skilled Dental surgeons at par with the international standards. Which is why a lot of people from the U.K., U.S.A. and Canada are preferring to visit India for their Dental Treatments as they save enormously on cost, get the same quality of treatment and can enjoy a holiday with their families or accompanying person.
Goa with it combination of super specialty hospitals and luxurious hotels, has been touted as an ideal medical tourism destination where ailing foreigners can combine a relaxing holiday with cheap but effective medical treatment.
But the state is seeing a new trend: hitching onto the medico-leisure bandwagon are dentists who are offering their services at a fraction of the price their foreign clients would expect to pay at home.
