Articles Straumann Dental Implants at your Harley Street dentist
Straumann is a leading international company for dentistry and is based in the third largest populated city in Switzerland, Basel. They are also the only company in the world to specialise in surgical, restorative and regenerative dentistry. It is, therefore, unsurprising to hear that their dental implants are also considered some of the best in the world.
Why are Dental Implants superior to other methods?
The only other non-removable method of replacing missing teeth is using a dental bridge. The dental bridge is implemented by filing away the top of the two teeth surrounding the lost tooth. The replica tooth is then anchored into place on the two teeth on either side that have been filed away.
Because the tooth is anchored through the use of nearby teeth, the replica is not attached to the gums, meaning both bone and gum recession will continue in the surrounding gum and bone tissue of the tooth. The dental implant uses titanium – which is very similar in its structure to bone and is very easily accepted by the body – to anchor the implant into the bone and gum tissue of the jaw. Because the implant is rooted into the gap of the tooth that has fallen out, the bone and gum loss that comes about after the loss of the tooth is stopped and can even be reversed. The final positive that dental implants have over bridges is the fact that, unlike the other method, there is no need to damage other perfectly healthy teeth.
Straumann’s variation of the technique improves this already commendable procedure. Whereas in the conventional procedure the implant is covered back up with the gum tissue once placed, Straumann does not do this, removing the need for a second appointment to uncover the implant again after the recovery period which generally takes from 6 weeks to 12 months depending on the patient and amount of work that is to be done.
Why is Straumann a good choice?
As well as a leading service and a success rate of 95% after 10 years, Straumann can boast over 50 years of experience since the company began in 1954. It can also claim to be one of the leaders in contributing research to the dental world with 6% of its overall profits going directly into research. Customer service is also a priority within the company and a loyalty offer is in place, offering customers the opportunity to attend events, discover more information on implants and their procedures and meet members of the company and other customers.
