Missing teeth can cause all manner of problems in the short- and long-term. Day-to-day, chewing and eating food may become more difficult. Your speech can also be affected. The loss of multiple teeth can begin to affect your facial structure, leaving you with an aged look. There are also long-term dental health consequences to contend with. Modern dentistry offers an effective solution in Hampshire: dental implants. This clinically proven treatment is used to tackle tooth loss, with reliable results, at Dental Implants Hampshire. Our team of dedicated dental professionals are here to help you regain the smile you had before tooth loss struck.
How do dental implants work?
Dental implants can be thought of as artificial tooth roots. They provide a stable base for custom-made replacement teeth to be attached. What’s more, once placed into your jaw, they encourage local bone growth. This gives them superior stability when compared with traditional dentures. Once your treatment is complete, this means you can tackle tough and chewy foods knowing your replacement teeth will stay put. There are also long-term benefits to be had. Dental implants help prevent jawbone degeneration and gum recession, which commonly occur after tooth loss.
Your implant journey?
At our practice in Hampshire, dental implants are carefully placed by an experienced implant dentist. We aim for precision and accuracy so that you can enjoy the best possible results. This is why we use 3D-imaging technology to plan your procedure. Your implant will be fitted under local anaesthetic, so your discomfort is kept to a minimum. We also offer sedation for patients who are feeling more nervous.
After your procedure, PRGF technology is available to help speed along your recovery. Once you’ve had time to heal, you can then come back to have your replacement teeth attached.
Are dental implants right for you?
Dental implants are successful in up to 97% of cases. This success is in part down to making sure implants are placed into a healthy mouth. If you have underlying dental health conditions, we will treat these first. Once resolved, you will be ready to have your dental implants fitted.
