Going through tooth loss can be a stressful experience. For most people, it’s an inevitable fact of life that at some point, one or more teeth will be lost. There are many factors that can change the possibility of tooth loss. These factors include:
- Having diabetes, high blood pressure, or other conditions like certain kinds of arthritis
- Being older than 35
- Gum disease
- Tooth grinding
- Accidents and injuries.
Luckily, with dental implants in Hertford, you can replace any number of missing teeth with a reliable and long-lasting solution. Dental implants are the preferred treatment for tooth loss because they work with your body in a similar way to a natural tooth.
At Hertford Dental Implants we offer services for nervous patients, so there’s no need to be put off if you get anxious visiting the dentist. We offer a choice between oral and intravenous sedation. We want getting dental implants in Hertford to be as relaxing as possible for you.
Implant technology: supporting natural teeth
We will urge patients to seek assistance as soon as possible when it comes to tooth loss. This is because, when a tooth is lost, the rest of your teeth are left open to further damage.
Our jawbones need stimulation to remain stable and in shape. This stimulation is usually provided by the root of the tooth. When the tooth is lost along with the root, the stimulation stops.
This lack of stimulation can cause the jawbone to recede, along with the gums. This causes problems for the surrounding teeth, as they will begin to shift into the space left by the missing tooth.
The specifics of dental implants in Hertford
Dental implant treatment requires a minor surgical procedure. During this procedure, a small hole will be created in your jawbone to allow a screw to be inserted.
The screw is made from a material that your body will accept and integrate with, creating a stable anchor for a crown, bridge or other appliance to be applied.
Implants can provide the same functionality as a natural tooth and give you your confidence back, so why wait any longer to consider dental implants in Hertford?
