However, opting for Hertfordshire Dental Implants allows our dedicated team of cosmetic specialists to craft a new smile for patients that is just as strong and durable as natural teeth would be!
What are Hertfordshire Dental Implants?
Dental implant treatment has changed the face (excuse the pun) of cosmetic, restorative dentistry forever.
Before dental implants became readily available, patents’ primary options to replace missing teeth were dentures, bridges or crowns. While these treatments work on a superficial basis, they do not provide the strength and support that dental implants do and often lead to other orthodontic or dental problems arising further down the line.
Additionally, many people who wear dentures are often embarrassed about removing them to clean them or sleep. However, with a dental implant, this is not the case, as they are permanently fused within the patient’s mouth.
Dental implant treatment fundamentally involves using dental science and expertise to replicate the process by which a natural tooth is embedded inside a patient’s mouth.
By replicating this process cosmetically, the patient can have new teeth attached forever fixed within their jawbone like a natural tooth.
Securing dentures means that patient smiles do not just look natural, they can also be used to the same levels of integrity and force that you would when eating even the toughest of foods, without the slightest bit of discomfort.
What are the advantages to dental implants
Alongside the strength and support that dental implants provide patients, there are also several other benefits to choosing them over traditional methods of treating a missing tooth:
- Comfort: Over time, those who wear dentures often find them to rub against their gums. This can be severely uncomfortable and often worsens over time. With dental implants, this problem is nonexistent, as the treatment is permanently attached – rather than just sitting on their gumline and acting on a superficial level.
- Confidence: Patients who choose dental implant treatment often find that their self-esteem and confidence levels rise significantly after treatment. This is because they can now smile freely and without care, knowing they have a set of healthy-looking teeth that aren’t going anywhere!
- Cleanliness: Another advantage of dental implants is the cleaning and maintaining the patient’s existing teeth is far easier. While dentures may sometimes present difficulties when brushing or flossing, a dental implant does not, meaning patients can keep their remaining teeth healthier with ease.
