Dental Implants in HertfordHow do dental implants work?

Dental implants are small, titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone. Titanium has the ability to fuse with the jawbone, creating a sturdy foundation around the dental implants, where replacement teeth can be supported. Success rates for dental implants are very high, when proper case selection is used. Dental implant treatment represents a slightly greater investment than regular bridges and dentures; however, the benefits of implant treatment for most patients outweigh the minor additional cost involved.

Single tooth replacement

The best solution to filling an unwanted gap in your smile is to opt for a single tooth implant. A simple and efficient process, single tooth replacement can be completed in a few months and your new crown will blend in with the rest of your teeth for a natural look.

Multiple teeth replacement

Multiple missing teeth can also be easily replaced with dental implants, regardless of their position in your mouth. Multiple dental implants can be treated with individual crowns or if possible, fixed bridges and partial dentures.

All teeth replacement

The process for replacing all teeth may sound scary but in fact, it is just as comfortable as replacing a single tooth. Your dentist will suggest overdentures, which are easy to install, very affordable and provide a natural and permanent result.

There are a number of reasons to consider dental implants over other forms of tooth replacement. To learn more about Hertford dental implants in Hertfordshire, contact our friendly team today.
