How do dental implants work?

If a patient chooses to have dental implants Hertfordshire fitted, then they will be fitted with their new implants in a very specific manner. Once it is determined where the implant will be fitted they are fitted directly into the socket that the missing tooth left behind. The implant can be either screwed into position or tapped into place depending on which fitting mechanism it has.


The implant will make contact with the bone and this is important as they will begin to fuse together. This fuse will continue to grow over time and this will allow the implant to have stability. The implant can then be used as a stable foundation on which to build a crown, denture or bridge. The next section of this article will discuss who is an ideal candidate for this treatment as well what potential patients should do next if they do decide that this treatment could be the one for them.
