Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. One of the great joys of working at Wayside Dental Practice in Harpenden is seeing patients who’ve lost teeth or who’ve struggled with loose teeth and dentures regain the ability to eat virtually anything they want. Seeing a patient smile again with confidence because they can see their teeth appear natural. without the contours of their face changing, is something our experienced dental team never get tired of.
The implants are tiny titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth restorations like dental crowns or a dental bridge. The implants also help provide stimulation that keeps the jawbone and facial structure healthy, preventing bone deterioration or atrophy.
Life is for living as the old saying goes and we see how dental implants are changing the way people live, every day. With them, you’ll rediscover the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life.
And did you know you can have a smile restoration in just one day? Teeth-in-a-day, sometimes known as All-on-4 or same day smiles, use only 4 or 6 dental implants to restore the normal use and aesthetics of the smile, without having to deal with a long healing (and waiting) period after the implants are placed into the jawbone. The process starts with digital dentistry, high-tech 3D imaging allows us to accurately assess bone density and pin-point exactly where your new teeth need to be placed to give you the best appearance possible. Wayside Dental Practice in Harpenden is a leading dental practice in computer guided implant surgery and have our own cone beam CT scanner which means your implant procedure is as safe, accurate and predictable as implant surgery can be.
This method may also eliminate the need for additional complicated procedures such as bone grafting prior to the placement of dental implants.
