Why should I opt for dental implants in St Albans?


There is no shame in tooth loss, people lose their teeth for a whole host of reasons, sometimes accidents and emergencies happen or a medical condition or sometimes tooth decay or gum disease has taken its hold. Whatever the reason, we at UK dental specialists believe all our patients have the right to feel confident in their smile.

Dental implants in St Albans are  a fantastic way to fix your lost tooth or teeth. They are designed and made to work as your natural teeth would and are a fantastic option if you’re looking to get back some tooth normality to your life.

What actually are dental implants?

Dental implants are a form of teeth replacement that are permanently fixed to your jaw and so are able to function as normal teeth would. They are attached to the jaw through a screw system. And a crown or false tooth is attached on top. They are usually made from titanium which naturally works with the body so the bone and gum can heal back around it.

What are the benefits of opting for dental implants in St Albans?

Unlike other forms of tooth replacement dental implants are permanently fixed so you don’t need to worry about having the awkward moments of taking them in and out before you sleep or in some cases when you’re eating.

We highly recommend dental implants for people who have busy lives and are looking for a longer term solution. As they work with the body’s natural processes to rejuiventent bone reproduction in the jaw. The human body is a very clever thing as I’m sure all our patients are aware of. What you might not realize is that when an area of bone stops being stimulated – for example in the jaw when a tooth is removed the body sends a signal to say that bone doesn’t need to be made in that place anymore. This is a problem as then the bone on the teeth on either side of the missing tooth stops growing which can lead to further tooth loss. Now, dental implants in St Albans can’t give you back your lost tooth but the action of having the screw inserted into the bone will allow you to keep your remaining teeth.


Imagine living with the daily reminder that you’d lost your tooth. With dental implants in St Albans when you’ve healed you’ll be able to carry on with your life as before. All you need to do is make sure you’re keeping up a super thorough dental hygiene routine and you’ll be set. If you’re worried about your dental routine, talk to your dentist about your process and they will be able to guide you to better care.
