Did you know that it takes a minimum of 10 muscles to smile? That’s not a bad way to workout, right?! If you’re not in the mood for smiling, though, you may be wondering how many it takes to frown instead. At Hertford Dental Care, we want to help our patients get the best-looking smile possible and give them a good reason to use it. If you have missing teeth, you may feel anxious about letting your teeth – or lack of them – show. With dental implants Hertfordshire, we can give you a restored smile that no one will realise isn’t your natural grin.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are titanium screws that are attached to your jawbone, where you have missing teeth. The screws are used as artificial roots for your teeth and an abutment is attached to them to which replacement teeth can then be affixed. Replacement teeth can be crowns, dentures or bridges, depending on how many need to be fitted. Implants can be used to replace one tooth, a number of teeth, or even a whole set!
Why dental implants are recommended
For some patients, dental implants may not be the right treatment option and this can be explored with an initial consultation. However, if dental implants are the right treatment for you, you can get excited about all of the reasons why they are a great option for replacing missing teeth.
Firstly, dental implants Hertfordshire offer a convenient, comfortable and effective solution to replacing missing teeth. They are convenient because you don’t need to worry about taking them out to clean them as you would have to with dentures. What’s more, you won’t need to worry about them loosening when you are eating or chatting, because thanks to the screws being fixed to the jawbone, they shouldn’t be going anywhere!
Another benefit of choosing dental implants is that once they are fitted and your mouth has healed, you will find that they are like having natural teeth and you shouldn’t experience any discomfort. You will also be able to eat and drink whatever you want without the fear of them loosening either. So, whether you like a steak well done or a crunchy apple on-the-go, you can continue to live your life normally with a great set of teeth.
Dental implants Hertfordshire should give you the confidence to smile and live your life without worrying about your teeth. To look after them, all you need to do is brush and floss regularly, as well as keep up with your routine dental check-ups here at the practice – it couldn’t be easier. By filling the gaps in your smile, you are also protecting any remaining natural teeth you have from exposure to bacteria.
