Hertford Dental Implants offers a number of implant-based treatment options, designed to restore both aesthetic appeal and natural action to your jaw. Implants are artificial tooth roots made out of titanium and placed in your jaw bone in a minor oral surgical procedure. Once there they will integrate with the jaw bone to provide all the stability of natural tooth roots.
Although placing dental implants does require minor surgery, most patients at Hertford Dental Implants only require local anaesthetic for this procedure, because it is intricately planned using the latest 3D computer software before surgery takes place.
However, here at Hertford Dental Implants we understand that some people are very nervous at the prospect of dental treatment. In fact, fear can often play a big role in premature tooth loss. That’s why we also offer the option of implant placement under conscious sedation, which means that whilst you won’t be asleep you will be very relaxed and largely unaware of your treatment. You are also unlikely to remember much about it afterwards – and if you do, this can help to build positive experiences of dentistry going forward.
All the implant work at Hertford Dental Implants is carried out by Principal Dentist Dr Gordon Black. He is a highly experienced implant surgeon who can treat everything from simple to complex implant cases.
Hertford Dental Implants – tooth restoration options
Whatever tooth restoration you need, it is designed to be permanent, both looking and functioning just like a real tooth or teeth. At Hertford Dental Implants your implants can be restored with:
Crowns – For single tooth replacement, one implant and one crown will be used
Bridges – Unlike standard bridges that only replace one or two teeth, implant-retained bridges can support many more teeth. In fact, an implant-retained bridge can be used for full-arch restoration in some cases.
Dentures – Dentures secured to dental implants will not become loose. The implants will hold them securely in place at all times, although you can still take them out for cleaning as required.
Your new teeth require prudent dental hygiene, and you should clean them at least twice daily.
