Getting 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.
