The facts you need to know about dental implants
In essence, what is a tooth replacement implant?
Tooth replacement implants distinguish themselves from other traditional missing teeth replacement options by their design and approach to solving this problem. The approach used is to mirror the precise look and feel of a natural tooth with an artificial one. The design, therefore, caters to this need: the two-part design (that is very similar to an actual tooth) consists of a screw-like metal rod that is surgically inserted into the jawbone, offering a reliable anchor to the tooth-like crown or cap that is placed on top.
Who is eligible for artificial tooth replacement implants?
A top concern of the supervising dental practitioner is the general oral health of the patient. Almost any patient can receive artificial tooth replacement implant treatment provided they meet with the minimum oral health requirements: good jawbone density, no underlying dental problems and good overall physical health (patients who have certain chronic conditions like diabetes may encounter some additional challenges). A dental practitioner will have to carry out a comprehensive assessment to determine suitability for this dental solution.
Is this a suitable solution to replace more than one tooth?
Yes. Depending on their need, patients can replace a single tooth or a full set of missing teeth.
Will others be able to detect I have an artificial tooth implant?
Generally speaking, there is very little to distinguish between an artificial tooth replacement implant so most people will not know whether a patient has received treatment or not.
It is, of course, for the best possible results to opt for a dental practitioner with the relevant credentials and experience in this type of cosmetic dentistry. Our proficient implant dentists at Hertford Dental Care clinic welcome patient requests for more information on our track record and the results we have achieved for other patients.
What is the cost of artificial tooth implant treatment?
At Hertford Dental Care, we don’t believe there is a one-size-fits-all treatment plan for all patients. We appreciate the uniqueness of each patient and so ensure we provide each patient with a tailor-made treatment plan specifically targeted to meeting their exact needs. This means that the cost for each patient’s treatment plan will differ depending on the current situation of their oral health (underlying conditions will have to be treated first as this will impact on the success of the treatment) and whether they will need additional procedures (such as bone grafting) performed before implantation can take place.
