A complete life

If you have just lost a tooth or two, you are probably wondering whether to spend a lot of money on dental implants, or to opt for something cheaper such as a fixed bridge, or partial denture.

It is true that bridges and dentures are both tried and tested ways to replace teeth. But are they the best option? At Dental Implants Hampshire, we have been placing dental implants in Hampshire for more than a decade, and have seen the difference having teeth that are firmly anchored in the jaw make to people’s lives.

Dental Implants in HampshireHaving dental implants in Hampshire has some major life benefits that revolve around two vital parts of being human — eating and socialising.


The more teeth we lose, the harder it becomes to bite into food and then chew it well enough for it to be well digested. Lose more teeth than just a few and you start having to exist on a soft food diet. Soft food is usually cooked and lacks the fibre we all need to be able to have a well-functioning digestive system. When we can’t eat crunchy, raw things and chewy or bitty foods (such as meats and nuts), we are cutting out some important ways of getting the nutrients we need. So, we can easily become malnourished, leading to all sorts of health problems.

Eating is also a fundamental pleasure, and being denied foods we love can seriously affect our mental well-being. How many people have not been able to bite into a crunchy apple for decades?


Human beings are social creatures. We need to be able to relax in company. If you have gaps in your teeth, especially at the front, or have false teeth that wobble around, you can become so self-conscious that you don’t go out, or daren’t speak or laugh as spontaneously as you once did, for fear of making a fool of yourself. This is not a good way to be. It can lead to isolation and depression.

In Hampshire, dental implants help you avoid all of the above issues. Why not book an appointment to find out more?

The secret ingredient in dental implants in Hampshire

What makes dental implants in Hampshire so popular? The reasons are simple: they stay put in your mouth and allow you to eat whatever you like, and they last for the rest of your life. No wonder so many people are choosing implants from Dental Implants Hampshire over other restoration methods.

Really, it’s a wonder no one thought of dental implants earlier instead of faffing about putting false teeth on vulcanised rubber, or hanging them off buttresses made of perfectly good healthy teeth.

Dental Implants in HampshireA little bit of history

Well, the truth is that people did think of dental implants a long time ago, centuries ago in fact. Archaeologists have found mummified Mayans with implants made from seashells and jade integrated into their jawbones. But this was in South America. In Europe, tooth replacement was going down the path of dentures made from dead soldiers, and ivory.

It was only in the 1950s that a Swedish scientist stumbled across the secret ingredient that has made all modern implants possible: titanium.

The miracle of titanium

Not only is titanium strong and light, it also has this rather amazing property of being biocompatible with the body. The body’s immune system rejects most foreign materials, and so making implants was not possible. Not until Per-Ingvar Brånemark discovered by chance that titanium and bone tissue seem to have rather a love affair going, with the titanium encouraging the growth of bone tissue around it, so that the two become enmeshed, and the bone holds onto the titanium implant as tightly as a long-lost lover. Great for replacing teeth, which, in order to work properly, have to be able to withstand multidirectional forces of up to about 200lbs or 97kg.

This process, known as osseointegration, takes several weeks to complete, which is why people having dental implants in Hampshire need to wait a while between having the implants fitted and having their custom-made crowns attached.

However, once the implants are in place, they are highly unlikely to fail, which means that you never have to replace them. The only thing that may cause failure is gum disease, so if you have implants you have to be vigilant about plaque removal, through brushing and regular scale and polishes.

Strong and permanent replacement teeth

At our practice in Hampshire, dental implants are used to improve a variety of tooth loss situations. Whether you’ve lost a single tooth playing sports, or several teeth for different reasons over the years, the friendly team at Dental Implants Hampshire will provide you with a natural-feeling solution that will bring you oral health benefits for many years to come.

The benefits of dental implants in Hampshire

Dental Implants in HampshireHaving a gap in your teeth can affect your overall confidence, and make you reluctant to smile. It can also increase the risk of gum disease and tooth decay by being harder to clean than the rest of your mouth, letting food particles and bacteria build up to harmful levels. The loss of several teeth can result in bone deterioration, which affects the shape of your face’s underlying structure. Unlike removable dentures, dental implants can eliminate or reduce all of these problems, giving you a healthier mouth with better dental function.

The procedure and its effects

Firstly, you’ll have a consultation. Our team will get to know your dental history, and what you want from your replacement teeth. Detailed images of your mouth will be taken, using contemporary equipment, to help us produce a treatment plan that’s precisely tailored to your needs. And we’ll ensure that your oral health is at a good enough level to receive the implants.

Then comes the minor surgical procedure, in which the dentist places small titanium posts into your jawbone. After a period of healing, the dentist will attach the replacement teeth to these posts. In a process known as osseointegration, the material of the jawbone forms a powerful bond with the implants, making a secure base for the replacement teeth. You’ll enjoy biting and chewing your food as you used to do with your natural teeth. Patients who’ve received dental implants in Hampshire can even find that certain words and phrases are easier to pronounce than they would have been when wearing removable dentures.

Dental Implants Hampshire offer payment plans to help you spread the cost of these long-lasting improvements. If your implants are properly cared for, they can last for the rest of your life.

Replacement teeth that restore natural function

The loss of a tooth can affect more than just your appearance. While having a gap in your smile may affect your confidence, it can also provide an awkward-to-clean space in which food particles and bacteria can hide. The loss of several teeth can lead to bone deterioration, which alters the underlying shape of your face. At our practice in Hampshire, dental implants are a solution to these problems. Our replacement teeth look and feel natural, helping you to enjoy your food like you used to before you lost your teeth, while enhancing the aesthetic appeal of your smile.

The first stage of your treatment will be a consultation with the friendly dental professionals at Dental Implants Hampshire. They will assess your teeth in detail, and talk to you about your dental history, to formulate a treatment plan that will provide the particular enhancements you want to achieve. The dentist will also make sure that your oral health and hygiene is of a high enough standard to proceed. Whether you need to replace one tooth lost in a sporting injury, or several teeth that have decayed over the years in Hampshire, dental implants need to be received in a condition of good oral health.

Once you’re ready, the dentist will insert small titanium posts into your jawbone, in a minor surgical procedure. After a period of healing, you’ll return to the surgery to have the replacement teeth securely affixed to these posts.

Stable future

The material of the jawbone meshes with the implanted posts, creating a stable foundation for the new teeth. You can bite and chew food with much more confidence than you’d have with removable dentures. And people who’ve had dental implants in Hampshire can find that certain words and phrases are easier to pronounce once their implants are in place.

We offer payment plans to help you spread the cost of your implants. By making them more affordable, we make the benefits of dental implants in Hampshire more achievable. If the implants are properly looked after, you can enjoy the benefits for the rest of your life.

Customised efficiency

Before you receive your dental implants in Hampshire, our friendly team will talk to you in detail about your dental history, and establish that your oral health and existing bone structure are in good enough condition to accept the implants. Working to a detailed treatment plan, the dentist will then place small titanium posts into your jawbone. Once your mouth has healed sufficiently, you’ll return to the practice to have the replacement teeth attached securely to these posts.

Long-term solutions

The titanium implants become securely anchored within the jawbone in a process known as osseointegration. This provides a stable foundation for your replacement teeth, so that you can enjoy meals as you used to, without having to cautiously opt for soft, mushy foods. As well as this, the implants prevent the bone deterioration that happens when teeth are lost, so your face’s underlying structure stays firm.

Oral hygiene can be easier to maintain with dental implants, because they fill in the spaces between teeth, leaving fewer hard-to-clean areas in which food debris and bacteria can gather. The risk that you’ll develop bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease is reduced.

If you have problems with loose dentures, we have a perfect solution

Tooth loss is an almost inevitable part of life. Growing older, we are more and more likely to lose our teeth. It’s a natural part of ageing that is unavoidable. Many of us end up using dentures. Dentures can be a truly life-changing treatment, allowing us to enjoy our food again.

The problem with dentures is that with time they can become loose and prone to moving and even falling out altogether. This is because when we lose our teeth, our jaws begin to change shape with the absence of stimulation to our jawbone, normally provided by the roots of our teeth.

Dental Implants in HampshireThere are many products that claim to help keep dentures in place, but many are a hassle and don’t provide the stability that other treatments could.

Dental implants in Hampshire can secure loose dentures

You may have heard of the use of dental implants to replace missing teeth. It’s true that dental implants can provide the most stable and durable form of replacement teeth, with custom-made crowns to fit your smile.

But, in Hampshire, dental implants can also be used to secure loose dentures, creating a stable anchor for existing dentures or a new custom-made set of dentures to attach to. Here at Dental Implants Hampshire, we can provide a complete, friendly service, securing your dentures and giving you the confidence to enjoy the foods you love.

How dental implants work

In Hampshire, dental implant treatment creates such a secure anchor because the treatment actually integrates with the natural material of your jaw. The treatment works with your body, instead of against it. The treatment involves a minor surgical procedure in which a titanium screw is inserted into your jawbone.

Over time, the titanium screw with integrate with your jaw and once allowed to heal, your existing dentures can be attached or a custom-made set can be crafted specifically for this application.

Studies show that less than 15% of people who have a lower denture wear it and use it to eat with because they find it so uncomfortable, make the most of your dentures with denture stabilisation.

Getting dental implants can change your life

Dental implants are recommended so widely up and down the UK for many reasons. They can be the solution to a range of problems, from single missing teeth to replacing all of your teeth or even securing dentures in place, giving you the confidence to eat the foods you love, even that juicy steak.

Here at Dental Implants Hampshire, we believe nothing should stop you from enjoying the same quality of life you enjoyed before tooth loss. In Hampshire, dental implants are offered for any number of missing teeth.

Dental Implants in HampshireGetting dental implants in Hampshire: what´s involved

If you feel like you are a suitable candidate for dental implants, the first thing to do is to see a professional to get the right advice. Only a registered professional can advise you appropriately on dental implants.

In Hampshire, dental implant procedure starts with a free consultation with one of our patient care co-ordinators. In this consultation, our friendly co-ordinator will guide you through the whole procedure, discuss exactly what you need, show you our past results and discuss any questions about cost and budget.

After this consultation, you will be assessed in three stages. These stages include taking digital photographs of your face, teeth and smile and taking some x-rays. From your assessment, a treatment plan can be produced, with all the information for you.

Dental implant treatment involves a minor surgical procedure in which a titanium screw is inserted into your jaw. This screw is given time to integrate with the natural material of your jaw and gums. Because the screw fuses with the material of your jaw, a secure anchor is created for a crown, bridge or dentures to be attached.

After treatment is complete

After your treatment, you will have a complete aftercare plan, to make sure your implants are healthy and will last you a long time.

If you look after your implants properly, they can last you a lifetime, making them the most durable solution to teeth loss. Many patients who have healed and got used to their implants forget which teeth are real and which are implants.

Keep your denture in place with dental implants in Hampshire

People who have lost most or all of their natural teeth find it difficult to get used to dentures. In the long run, dentures tend to become loose and unstable, because the jawbone is gradually deteriorating. This can create many problems with eating and speaking, leading to sore spots in the mouth as well as further tooth loss.

At Dental Implants Hampshire, we understand that ill-fitting dentures can cause many problems and that’s why we provide stabilisation of your denture with dental implants in Hampshire. The mini dental implants we use for this process provide a viable and cost-effective solution for patients who’d like a permanent solution to tooth loss.

Dental Implants in HampshireWhat are mini dental implants?

Mini dental implants are shorter and narrower than regular dental implants but are still made of titanium. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball, instead of a screw, fitting into a socket-like attachment in the base of your denture. This way the denture snaps into position and is held securely in place. Typically, just four mini dental implants are used to stabilise a denture, although this can vary from patient to patient.

What is the procedure?

Your dentist will fit mini dental implants in the same way they would fit regular dental implants. First, they will determine your suitability and the amount of bone available in the jaw. This will enable them to create a treatment plan and design your dental implants with precision. One of the benefits of having mini implants instead of regular ones, is that less bone is required to hold them in place. This is because they are fixed at an angle into the jawbone. This procedure is quite simple, as the dental implants are simply screwed in position and there is no need to open up the gums and have stiches. Furthermore, mini dental implants can often be immediately ‘loaded’, which means that you can have your denture stabilised in only one day.

Who makes a good candidate for dental implants in Hampshire?

Do you have missing or badly damaged teeth that need to be replaced? If so, dental implants offer a viable solution to tooth loss, because unlike other tooth replacement options they are permanently attached into the jawbone. Dental implants can improve the look and function of your smile, giving you much needed confidence.

At Dental Implants Hampshire, dental implants are our treatment of choice for patients who have lost one, several or all of their natural teeth. Unlike conventional dentures and bridges, have the unique ability to fuse to the jawbone and create a stable and strong foundation for replacement teeth. These can be single crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures.

Dental Implants in HampshireOur experienced dentists will examine your teeth and gums and determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants in Hampshire. Understanding the conditions that make a good dental implant candidate, making necessary changes, and exploring additional dental options can have you smiling confidently again.

Conditions for successful dental implants

Generally speaking, oral and overall health are the factors that you should take into consideration before considering dental implants. Age itself is not a barrier as long as you are an adult or all your permanent teeth have appeared. Most people who are in good health are good candidates for dental implants in Hampshire. Your dentist will evaluate the state of your teeth and gums and consider your eligibility for dental implants based on three criteria – healthy teeth and gums, a strong and healthy jawbone and good oral hygiene.

Patients who smoke or have active gum disease are not good candidates for dental implants, since both conditions can compromise healing time. As a matter of fact, gum disease is the leading cause of implant failure. Luckily, it can be fairly easily treated.

Furthermore, if you suffer from certain conditions, like diabetes or heart disease, you need to collaborate with your doctor and your dentist to improve your overall health before getting dental implants.

This may require extensive treatment, but every patient is evaluated on an individual basis. In many cases, our dentists will identify potential risks and inform you in detail so that you make the right decision.
