Having a missing tooth, especially if it’s one of our front teeth, can be very noticeable and have a negative effect on our confidence and self esteem, not to mention on the way we look. Hertford Dental Implants are designed specifically to replace our missing teeth, in turn restoring our self esteem and enabling us to smile again with confidence. Hertford Dental Implants can be used to replace most other teeth also, such as: side teeth, back teeth and numerous or all missing teeth. Not only do they improve our facial aesthetics after we have lost a tooth, they also support the bones in or skull which help to stabilize our face.
How do dental implants work?
Dental implants are made from small pieces of titanium. They’re bonded to the jaw which usually takes a number of months to complete. Once the implant is fixed securely in place, a bridge, crown or denture is attached to the implant and together they look and work, just like a natural tooth. Hertford Dental Implants say that implants help to solve other problems such as: eating difficulties, speech problems, dentures causing sore gums and dentures that can slip around or fall out of the mouth causing embarrassing situations.
Dental implants used to replace a full set of teeth
Hertford Dental Implants are an excellent way to replace a full set of teeth. This works differently to normal implants and is known as denture stabilisation. Denture stabilisation involves fixing a set of dentures onto the implants instead of individual crowns or bridges. The dentures are removable and can be removed to be cleaned. Because the dentures are fixed in place, they will not slip around in the mouth, or fall, out causing unnecessary discomfort or embarrassment.
Am I suitable to receive dental implants?
The majority of people are able to receive dental implants straight away. The dentist will carry out an assessment and determine if there is enough bone available to hold the implant firmly in position. If there isn’t enough bone available, usually a simple bone graft is done and the problem is resolved, allowing the implant surgery to go ahead.
