Choosing dental implants will give you more than just your beautiful smile back. Here at Bow House dental clinic in Hertfordshire, we think that implants are the perfect solution to tooth loss. They support your new teeth – a single crown, a bridge, or a denture – with the same strength as natural tooth roots, providing unrivalled action alongside natural appearance.
Your dental implants journey at our Hertfordshire dental practice begins with a consultation with an experienced implant dentist. They will use x-rays and CT scans as necessary to assess your level of bone density and determine the best course of implant treatment for you.
We use several world-renowned dental implants systems at our Hertfordshire dental practice, so we are confident that we will find the ideal solution to suit your needs – whatever they may be.
Most people at Bow House in Hertfordshire only need local anaesthetic for the placement of dental implants, because it is intricately planned beforehand by your dentist, using the very latest 3D computer software. This means that your implants will be put in exactly the right position to support your new teeth, whilst also avoiding any nerves or other vital structures.
When your implants are placed in your jaw, they need some time to heal and integrate with the jaw bone. Dental implants are made from titanium and are specifically designed so that new bone material and blood vessels will grow over them, creating a very strong bond.
This healing process takes a few months to complete in its entirety, during which time your Hertfordshire dentist may attach temporary teeth, so you won’t be left with large gaps in your mouth for months on end. For those having a full-arch denture stabilised, it is often possible to keep wearing your old denture during healing.
Once your implants have fully integrated with your jaw bone, your Hertfordshire dentist will attach your permanent new teeth. These could be a single crown for one missing tooth, or a bridge or denture to replace several or all the natural teeth in one jaw.
Whatever your requirements, you will soon be enjoying all the benefits of your “second chance” at natural teeth.
