For people who have missing teeth, smiling happily and confidently may not be such an easy thing to do. With gaps in your smile, it could cause you to feel a little less Mr Happy and a little more Little Miss Shy. At Hertford Dental Care, we can help to give you a smile you can be proud of with dental implants Hertfordshire.
To have a smile that looks completely natural and won’t let you down in its mechanics is the aim of our game, enabling patients to continue living their lives without worrying about their original tooth loss. Patients can lose teeth for all sorts of reasons – not just poor oral hygiene – so let us help you get back on the path of smiley, happy people – holding hands is optional! (If you have a song in your head right now, you’re welcome!).
What are dental implants?
Dental implants Hertfordshire consist of titanium metal screws that can be attached to the jaw bone to act as artificial roots for your replacement teeth. They fuse with the soft tissue around the jaw bone, and once this area has healed, they shouldn’t be going anywhere!
To do this, Dr Gordan Black, who gained his Implant Diploma from The Royal College of Surgeons (fancy and fabulous!), will then use an abutment to attach the replacement teeth. Depending on whether you need to replace a single tooth, multiple teeth or a whole set, he will use either crowns, bridges or dentures. As a practice that has been established for 75 years and been a Smile Award finalist that’s Care Quality Commission approved, you can be sure that you will be in good hands and receive excellent care.
Why should I choose dental implants?
Whilst it would be best to have an initial consultation with us to find out which treatment is right for you, we can tell you that if implants are suitable, they are probably the next best thing to having natural teeth.
Being able to rely on your teeth not loosening when you eat and talk allows you to continue life as normal. Plus, nobody would realise that you don’t have a full set of natural teeth since your replacement teeth will match your natural teeth in shape, shade and size. What’s more, they are really easy to maintain: just brush, floss, use mouthwash and pop in to see us regularly for a dental checkup as normal.
Another benefit of opting for dental implants Hertfordshire is that you can protect any remaining natural teeth and your gums from overexposure to bacteria, which could lead to further complications if left untreated. We know you don’t want any complications (life’s complicated enough!), and by having dental implants fitted, you can stop worrying about anything else going wrong in the tooth loss department. Furthermore, we also see that many of our patients can appear more fresh-faced and youthful in their visage, thanks to having the structure added back into their faces with the gaps filled in. Nobody wants a shrunken face!
