When you choose dental implants in Hertford, you’ll regain your natural dental function, improve the appearance of your smile, and protect your face’s underlying bone structure. Whether you want to replace a single missing tooth, several teeth you’ve lost at different times, or a whole set of teeth, Hertford Dental Implants will give you a solution that brings long-lasting health benefits.
The way your dental implants in Hertford work means they bring a variety of oral health improvements beyond those provided by removable dentures.
Implants maintain the natural strength of the jawbone, reducing the chances of damage or injury and keeping your face looking firm, free of the sunken look that can make denture-wearers appear prematurely aged.
They reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Because they permanently fill in the gaps in your teeth, there’s less space for harmful food debris to hide in and provide food for the bacteria that cause decay.
Implants are easy to clean. You brush them the same way you brush your natural teeth. Although they can’t decay, plaque building up on them can lead to gum disease.
Their secure fit and natural feel can make certain words and phrases easier to pronounce.
The process happens in several stages. Firstly, our friendly dental professionals will discuss your oral health and make sure you’re ready for your dental implants in Hertford. By taking detailed images of your teeth, we can make a precise treatment plan, keeping the process efficient and effective. Then comes the implant procedure, in which small titanium posts are placed into your jawbone. These posts sit in the gaps where the roots of your missing teeth used to be. Over the next few weeks, the titanium of the implants stimulates the bone to grow new tissue which meshes with the implant, holding it securely in place for eating.
Once this process is completed, you will then return to our practice, to have the replacement teeth securely attached to the posts. The crowns are hand-made from porcelain matched with your own teeth in colour, shape and size, so that the implants will be indistinguishable.
