Missing teeth are a common problem amongst some people, and this can lead to major distress when it comes to a person’s view on their appearance. For this reason if a patient does have a missing tooth, a missing selection of teeth or if indeed they have lost their entire set, they should be able to have access to a treatment that can help them regain control of their smile again. This article will highlight how a specific treatment could make a smile whole again, how they are fitted, who could benefit from this treatment as well as what a potential patient’s next step should be if they do decide that this treatment is for them.
What are dental implants?
Hertfordshire dental implants are available for those patients who have missing teeth. Dental implants are a solution to missing teeth as they can form a stable anchor for a new crown, bridge or denture. The end result of this treatment allows a patient to have a complete smile again where they have teeth that look, act and feel like the teeth that were lost in the first place. The teeth once they are fitted on top of the implants can then be taken care of in the same way that natural teeth are. If these implants sound like a good solution, patients should read on to the next section to see how the implants are fitted.
How are they fitted?
Hertfordshire dental implants are fitted by first placing the implant at the bone and giving it time to fuse there. Once a stable foundation has been formed then the implant can be used to build a crown, bridge or denture on top of it. The new tooth will be specially moulded to the patient’s mouth so it is the perfect fit. If this treatment still sounds like a treatment that a patient could benefit from then they should read on to the next section to discover if this treatment could be a good fit.
Could they work for me?
This treatment could be the perfect solution for a patient who has missing teeth and is looking to make their smile complete again. As long as a patient’s gums are healthy and stable and they have enough bone for the implants to fuse to then they are an ideal candidate for this treatment. Patients should consider getting this treatment if they have missing teeth, as missing teeth can cause health complications further down the line such as the surrounding teeth moving into different positions and giving rise to other issues such as infections and gum disease. If a patient thinks that this treatment could be a good fit for them then they should read on to the next section.
