At our practice in Hampshire, dental implants are available to treat a wide variety of tooth loss situations. We can restore a whole set of teeth lost to decay, or just a single one that was knocked out by accident. If you already wear removable dentures, we can use implants to secure them, in a process known as denture stabilisation. Whatever the details of your treatment are, Dental Implants Hampshire will give you new teeth that look great, feel natural, and will last for many years to come.
Missing teeth cause problems
Gaps in your smile can make you reluctant to show your mouth when socialising or posing for photos. You can be prevented from fully enjoying yourself because of worries about your appearance. If you’ve lost several teeth, bone deterioration can become an issue. Your jawbone might weaken, increasing the risk of injury, and your face may develop a sunken look. Mealtimes can be problematic, and it can be a bit tricky to keep the remaining teeth clean. Having dental implants in Hampshire will prevent these problems, and improve your appearance while enhancing your dental function.
First, we’ll get to know your dental history, and talk you through the details of the treatment. We’ll check that your oral health is good, and that you have sufficient bone density to receive the implants. Taking detailed images of your teeth will help us to create a meticulous treatment plan.
Then comes the minor surgical procedure, during which the dentist will place small titanium posts into your jawbone. After a period of healing, you’ll return to the practice to have your replacement teeth securely attached to the posts.
Your jawbone forms a secure bond with the titanium posts, which provides a stable base for your Hampshire dental implants. You’ll enjoy biting into and chewing foods without worrying about teeth falling out onto the table. Your underlying bone structure will maintain its integrity, so the underlying shape of your face will remain the same. Plus, the security of the implants can make speaking easier. You clean the implants just like your natural teeth, and your bright smile will be plain for all to see.
