Advantages of Dental Implants

  • Improved appearance: Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth. 
  • Improved comfort: Because they become part of you, implants eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
  • Easier eating: Ill-fitting dentures can make chewing difficult. Dental implants function like your own teeth, allowing you to eat your favorite foods with confidence.
  • Improved self-esteem: Dental implants can give you back your smile and new lease of life.
  • Improved oral health: Dental implants don't require reducing other teeth, as a tooth-supported bridge does. Because nearby teeth are not altered to support the implant, more of your own teeth are left intact, improving long-term oral health. Individual implants also allow easier access between teeth, improving oral hygiene.
  • Durability: Implants are very durable and with proper care can last a lifetime.
  • Convenience: Removable dentures are just that; removable. Dental implants eliminate the embarrassing inconvenience of removing dentures, as well as the need for messy adhesives to keep them in place.

Why Choose Dental Implants?

With dental implants you can say goodbye to dentures forever. You can avoid denture adhesives and pastes forever. You can taste foods properly often for the first time in years. You can feel years younger without a plate in your mouth. It’s amazing the confidence that just having your own teeth can bring. You can brush your teeth in your mouth instead of in your hands. You can eat all the foods you love again without cutting them into small pieces. You can kiss and laugh and smile without being concerned about your teeth. It`s an amazing feeling.

Dental implants are a revolution in dental technology, offering the ability to easily replace missing teeth. These modern developments have changed the way we look at the mouth and allows us to achieve what was once impossible.Until recently, dentistry was about taking things out. Dentists would frequently take out any teeth that were causing problems, and left many people without teeth and with little comfort. Dental implants have many advantages and they are an investment in your future. Nobody wants to live with missing teeth and an uncomfortable denture that may become loose and cause discomfort.

Without a tooth root the jawbone will begin to reduce and cause the face to collapse. This happens over time and ages a person. Dental implants, when maintained properly, will prevent any further bone loss. With dental implants we are able to give people teeth and encourage the growth of jaw bone. We want to restore our patient’s confident smiles and allow them to live their lives in comfort. It’s a fantastic time to be in dentistry and a great time to be changing lives. Choose dental implants at Seapoint Clinic as the right investment in your oral health.

Technology & Advanced Training lead the way

Choosing the right clinic for dental implants can be a very stressful experience. There are so many ads out there for clinics all offering different things at varying prices. Do you choose the seemingly cheap dental implants performed overseas or go with a dependable clinic at home or anything in-between?

Seapoint Clinic was established to try to make the choice as easy as possible for you. Investing in the latest technology means that we can place implants even for patients who have been refused by other dentists. Using advanced CT scanners rarely available outside hospitals we can see inside you in 3D to check exactly where nerves and sinuses are. Most smaller local dentists don`t have this facility and so might not be able to carry out an implant in this situation.

We want you to have as much information as possible before getting treatment done so that it`s the right treatment for you. If you read our book - Dental Implants: A Guide for Patients, you will be as informed as possible before going ahead wherever you decide to go. You may also find some of our TV & Radio appearances useful as a reference.

Another big problem that Seapoint solves is the clarity in terms of fees charged. Our x-ray fee of €60 includes all the x-rays you will need through the whole implant process. Some clinics charge €150+ for the CT alone. That can be a saving of hundreds of euros over the course of a treatment. It`s particularly reassuring for our patients to know that clear and upfront pricing is at the core of what we do.

Costs?

Dental implant costs can be particularly bewildering in other clinics. Some clinics advise on a low cost implant, but the small print says it only applies with 10 or more implants. Others give an implant fee which doesn't include the post or the crown on top or even the surgery to place it.

Most patients do not want to attend a clinic which is trying to deceive them from the outset. After all you are buying something which will hopefully be a permanent fixture in your mouth where trust is absolutely essential.

Seapoint also offers other technology to make the experience better for you. We offer you sedation for the placement of dental implants and for nervous patients in general. The sedation allows you to sleep through the procedure in comfort so you remember nothing. Safety is always paramount and full monitoring and oxygen is onsite at all times. Staff are regularly trained in CPR to ensure that you are in the very safest of hands.

Having our own on-site dental laboratory also makes life much more comfortable for patients. If a tooth on a denture breaks it can be fixed the same day while you wait. If you are having teeth out the clinic can make sure you leave with at least a temporary tooth the same day. That saves discomfort and embarrassment which you can`t put a price on.

The most important thing about Seapoint though is definitely its people. They are all exceptionally kind and are all too aware of how nervous some people can be. Our aim is to make it the best dental experience you have ever had.
