A smile can be one of your most important assets and having it not looking its best could cause you to lose confidence in it. There are a number of different reasons why you may not be happy with your smile. Is the fact that you have a missing tooth, or even missing teeth, one of the reasons that you are not happy with your smile? If so, we can help you get your full set of teeth back and along with them, your self-confidence. This article will take you through how dental implants could help you, how they are fitted, how you should take care of them, as well as what you should do next.
Could dental implants help me?
We firmly believe that if you have had the unfortunate loss of teeth then Hertfordshire dental implants could be the perfect service to make your smile complete again. It can often be a necessary and effective treatment to ensure the overall health of your mouth. Gaps in your smile can cause issues for the structural integrity of your jaw and face. For this reason it is a good idea to replace missing teeth to ensure that teeth do not begin to move around in the mouth and cause further dental issues. An implant can be used as a root on which to build a new tooth and this can have a dramatic effect on your oral health.
How are they fitted?
Hertfordshire dental implants are fitted in a way that provides you with peace of mind about your new set of teeth. The implant itself is a small screw that is placed into the jaw with great precision. The screw is then given time, over a series of months to be able to incorporate into the jaw and fuse with the bone. This gives a stable and long lasting platform for the new tooth to be placed on top of. Depending on the types of tooth you have lost and the placement within your mouth, you could find yourself with a new crown, bridge or denture.
Will they last?
Hertfordshire dental implants are designed to last a lifetime, provided that they are looked after in the correct way. Your dentist will ensure that you are aware of the correct technique to look after your brand new smile and keep it as healthy looking as possible for as long as possible. You can be assured that your new tooth will look, act and feel very much like the tooth that you unfortunately lost. However, you do not have to worry about the tooth succumbing to erosion and infection like a natural tooth.
