Dental implants are the only permanent way your dentist can replace your missing teeth. At Bow House dental practice in Hertfordshire we offer a number of implant solutions, designed to replace anything from one to all of your natural teeth.
There are numerous benefits to be gained from choosing dental implants to replace missing teeth. Every dentist will agree that any lost teeth should be replaced one way or another, and at our Hertfordshire dental clinic we believe that, more often than not, dental implants are the perfect way to do so.
The two key points to remember about dental implants are: 1) They are the only permanent solution to tooth loss, which with proper care should last you for many years; and 2) They are the only way your dentist can replace the roots of the teeth, which is important not just for holding a bridge, crown, or denture in place, but is also vital to helping to prevent bone loss.
When the tooth roots are missing the jaw bone will start to resorb, which in addition to meaning you may need a bone graft before dental implants can be placed, can also cause traditional dentures to become so loose they verge on uselessness. Badly-fitting dentures can make it impossible to eat anything but a soft-food diet, can affect your ability to speak clearly, and can have a hugely negative impact on your confidence and your social life.
By choosing dental implants, you can help to alleviate all of these problems, and in many cases avoid them all together.
Dental implants are small screws or posts placed in direct contact with your jaw bone in a minor operation, carried out here at Bow House in Hertfordshire. The implants will mesh with your jaw bone and will provide a firm anchor for your new teeth, similar to that of natural tooth roots. You will soon be enjoying the full functionality of a healthy jaw, including being able to eat, smile, and speak with confidence.
We offer a range of implant systems at our Herefordshire dental practice, so your dentist will find the perfect one for your needs.
