For those who suffer with missing teeth, dental implant treatment offers the closest answer to natural teeth. A long-term solution that is designed to last a lifetime, dental implants at Hatfield Dental are strong, stable, and beautifully aesthetic.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are made up of two parts – the implant itself and the crown. The implant is like a screw and acts as a replacement tooth root, providing a secure and stable base for the crown to fix on to. The crown is the prosthetic tooth and is the only section that will be visible.
The treatment is carried out by surgically placing the implant into the jawbone. This takes skill and precision and can only be carried out by dentists who have undertaken specific training in this field, such as our dentist Afsar Hussain. The natural bone will grow around the implant creating a strong structure for the new crown.
When dental implant treatment is carried out by dental practitioners with advanced levels of expertise, such as our very own dentist Afsar Hussain, the results are so natural that they are hardly distinguishable from the natural teeth.
Who are dental implants for?
Dental implants are for any patients who have a missing tooth or teeth. We will need to carry out a full consultation and examination, including dental X-rays in order to ensure the oral health is stable and that there is enough bone structure in place.
Once a tooth is lost, the bone around it can often deteriorate and this can lead to further tooth and bone loss. Another negative result of this is facial sagging as the structure that holds the face in place begins to be lost. Dental implant treatment can effectively encourage bone regrowth and replaces the facial structure at the same time, meaning that patients achieve far more than just beautiful, functional new teeth!
