A dental implant is an innovative way of restoring teeth that can be used to replace one tooth or a whole set. At the Dental Implants Hampshire surgery we’ve used this treatment to help many patients keep their smile and feel confident to eat whatever they want.
Prevent bone loss
This kind of procedure can benefit many people in Hampshire. Dental implants are fitted into the jaw with a titanium screw that fixes directly into the jaw bone. This is in place of the tooth root. The procedure creates a very helpful reaction in the body – the remaining bone grows around the implant, which also stimulates blood vessels, meaning it actually helps to prevent bone loss.
This stimulating affect on the jaw means that the bone structure of your face is maintained. Here at Dental Implants Hampshire we’ve seen that implants can help to prevent the sinking of the face that can happen with tooth loss.
Comfortable and convenient
Having dental implants in Hampshire also means that you can eat as usual – you don’t have to be afraid to bite down on that missing area of tooth anymore. And because the implant fuses with your existing bone, they become part of your mouth, eliminating the discomfort and inconvenience of using removable dentures. No need to worry about teeth slipping, making speech slur or chewing difficult. You can feel confident in your smile again.
Another benefit of implants is that, unlike bridges, they do not affect the surrounding teeth. You can also get in between each replaced tooth, which is better for long-term oral health.
We have seen many patients feel these benefits in Hampshire. Dental implants are a long-lasting treatment and with good care will last for many years. You need to maintain them well and have regular check ups, as with natural teeth. Come into the surgery for a consultation and tests to find out whether this is the right treatment for you. To receive dental implants in Hampshire you need to be in good general health, have good bone density in your jaw and healthy gums.
