With dental implants, a dentist has a permanent method of replacing your missing teeth. At Bow House dental practice in Hertfordshire our skilled implants team can replace one, some, or even all of your natural teeth with the help of implants.

dental-implants-HertfordshireWhat are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots. Made out of titanium, they are placed in direct contact with your jaw bone in a minor oral surgical procedure, carried out by a skilled implant dentist here at Bow House, Hertfordshire.

The majority of our implant patients only need local anaesthetic for the placement of dental implants, because it will be intricately planned using the latest software and CT scans prior to surgery, so that nerves and other vital structures are avoided.

However, if you are nervous about dental treatment – perhaps it was fear of the dentist that has caused your tooth loss – we also offer implant placement under conscious sedation. We have a sympathetic and experienced team here at our Hertfordshire clinic, who understand the concerns of nervous and phobic patients, and are happy to talk through your fears and the solutions we offer away from the dentist’s chair.

Once your dental implants have been placed, they will be left to heal for a few months, during which time they will integrate with your jaw bone and will provide a stable base on to which a crown, bridge, or denture can then be attached.

With proper care, dental implants should last you many years – sometimes even a lifetime. Gone are the concerns associated with traditional dentures, where bone resorbtion can cause your false teeth to become loose, affecting your diet, speech, and self-esteem.

Instead, with dental implants, you will be able to enjoy the full functionality of a jaw full of teeth. This means that you will no longer find your diet restricted, and will be able to eat a healthy, balanced diet, which is good for your general health. You will be able to speak clearly, and will find that your confidence is restored in social and professional situations, with no fears about your teeth falling out.
