Tooth decay, gum disease, accident or injury. Any one of these scenarios can result in tooth loss. Losing teeth is an experience we all hope to avoid. However when it does strike, effective treatment is key to ensuring you won’t continue to suffer from the fall-out. A modern treatment that you can trust to restore your missing teeth is dental implants. Hampshire is home to our modern practice, which is dedicated to reconstructing teeth with dental implants. Whether you’ve lost a single tooth through accident or all of your teeth through ill health, Dental Implants Hampshire can provide you with a reliable solution.
What are dental implants?
When you take a look at your teeth in the mirror, all you can see is their crowns. Beneath your gum line, lie your tooth roots. Dental implants act as artificial tooth roots. They are placed directly into the jawbone, where they support bone growth to firmly lock them in place. Replacement teeth can be attached on top. This level of stability cannot be matched with traditional dentures. Dental implants also help prevent shrinking of the gums and jawbone, which both occur after tooth loss.
Your implant treatment
At your consultation, a highly trained implant dentist will talk you through exactly what your treatment will involve. A comprehensive examination of your teeth and gums, including 3D-imaging, all go towards the meticulous planning of your procedure. Your comfort is of great importance to us, which is why your implants will be placed under local anaesthetic, with sedation also available.
Once you have had time to heal, we will set about designing and fitting your custom-made replacement. Your dental implants in Hampshire will ultimately leave you with a natural look and feel.
