Why visit the dentist?
Dental health plays a significant role in our wellness and quality of life. Therefore it is a ‘must’ not to ignore or overlook the importance of consistently implementing good dental regimes. Failing to look after teeth will cause many problems and issues that can have a detrimental impact on the overall well being of a person. Our dentist at Hertford Dental Care will identify any dental problems that might be causing you pain or discomfort and help remedy the problem in the most effective and feasible way. Our dental professionals will personalise the treatment plan to suit each individual, as no two individuals have the same conditions of dental health or presentation.
What are some common dental problems?
There are many different kinds of dental issues that cause pain and discomfort and in turn impair the everyday life of an individual. They might be toothache, stained teeth, cavities, impacted teeth, sensitive teeth or crooked teeth. These issues can even cause severe stress both physically and psychologically.
What dental treatments do you provide?
There are many different types of treatments to help address the variety of dental problems that might impair the everyday functioning of a person’s life. There are bridges, crowns, fillings, braces and implants amongst others that can bring relief. These treatment options will be recommended by our dentist as required. However when it comes to the complete loss of a tooth or teeth we realise how important it is to adopt the right approach in restoration and we will often recommend a dental implant.
What are dental implants?
A dental implant is a small post-like device that is fixed and merged with the jawbone through osseointegration. This might take several months and in the end the fixture will act as a replacement for a tooth or teeth. A dental implant once fitted with a crown acts as an artificial tooth replacing the function and the aesthetics of a missing tooth or teeth. A dental implant is the nearest thing a patient can get to having a real tooth and it is indistinguishable from a patient’s remaining natural ones. Furthermore, such a tooth will not affect the other teeth around it and will mimic the lost tooth or teeth.
What are dental implants used for?
Dental implants Hertfordshire are used to replace a lost tooth or teeth at the root. The fusion between the fixture and the jawbone makes this type of restoration very enduring and stable. Most of these dental implants Hertfordshire are made of titanium. There is no reaction between the titanium and the jawbone and therefore titanium is the most commonly used material in this treatment

What is the goal of a dental implant?
