Dental implants are treatments that are applicable to situations where there are missing teeth. They were originally conceived to replace teeth that had been lost due to decay, infection or damage. Their main purpose was to restore the chewing ability of the patient and the proper functioning of the teeth.
Dental Implants also prevent the other neighbouring and opposing teeth from tilting and moving over time into the space left by the original tooth.
Aesthetics and function
However, over the years, dental implants evolved to serve a dual purpose of both aesthetics and function. This is especially true when it comes to the teeth in the front of the mouth.
The main driver for a combined aesthetic and functional ability of implants has been the loss of confidence felt by those that have missing front teeth. When teeth are lost they can also leave behind deteriorating self-esteem.
This has been known to have a significant negative impact on people and their lives. Dental treatments have been a welcome solution to many psychological issues arising from loss of teeth as well as physical dental disability. We can carry out dental implant treatments at our Hertford clinic.
