Permanent replacement teeth

A long-lasting and stable method of tooth replacement in Hampshire, dental implants will give you back your natural dental function. The new teeth will look and feel as good as the old ones, so you can enjoy biting and chewing your favourite foods with confidence. As well as this, the implants prevent the bone deterioration that gives the face a sunken look.

Any number of teeth

Dental Implants in HampshireAt our practice in Hampshire, dental implants may be used to solve a variety of tooth loss problems. Whether you’ve lost a single tooth through injury, or many teeth from prolonged decay, Dental Implants Hampshire can restore what you’ve been missing. There’s no need to have a smile you want to hide.

Customised efficiency

Before you receive your dental implants in Hampshire, our friendly team will talk to you in detail about your dental history, and establish that your oral health and existing bone structure are in good enough condition to accept the implants. Working to a detailed treatment plan, the dentist will then place small titanium posts into your jawbone. Once your mouth has healed sufficiently, you’ll return to the practice to have the replacement teeth attached securely to these posts.

Long-term solutions

The titanium implants become securely anchored within the jawbone in a process known as osseointegration. This provides a stable foundation for your replacement teeth, so that you can enjoy meals as you used to, without having to cautiously opt for soft, mushy foods. As well as this, the implants prevent the bone deterioration that happens when teeth are lost, so your face’s underlying structure stays firm.

Oral hygiene can be easier to maintain with dental implants, because they fill in the spaces between teeth, leaving fewer hard-to-clean areas in which food debris and bacteria can gather. The risk that you’ll develop bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease is reduced.

When the gaps in your smile are replaced by natural-looking teeth, you might feel a boost in your overall confidence. And the new teeth will reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease, because there’ll be fewer awkward spaces in your mouth in which food particles and bacteria can hide. As well as this, the implants will maintain the underlying firmness of your face’s bone structure, preventing the sunken look that can develop when removable dentures are worn for a long time. The natural feel of the implants can even mean that some words and phrases are easier to pronounce than they would be with removable dentures.

Personalised treatment

The first stage of treatment is a consultation with our team. We’ll talk to you about your dental history, and explain the available options, including the technical and financial details. We’ll also make sure your oral health is at a good enough standard to receive the implants.

After this, you’ll return to the practice to undergo the surgical part of your dental implants in Hampshire, during which the dentist will place small titanium posts into your jawbone, usually under local anaesthetic. After a period of healing, the dentist will attach your replacement teeth to the tops of the titanium posts.

The bone will form a strong bond with the implants in a process known as osseointegration. This means the replacement teeth have a secure base, and you can enjoy biting and chewing your food as you used to do with your natural teeth.

As long as you look after them properly, the implants will last for many years. You could carry on enjoying the improved function and reduced oral health risks for the rest of your life.

If you have problems with loose dentures, we have a perfect solution

Tooth loss is an almost inevitable part of life. Growing older, we are more and more likely to lose our teeth. It’s a natural part of ageing that is unavoidable. Many of us end up using dentures. Dentures can be a truly life-changing treatment, allowing us to enjoy our food again.

The problem with dentures is that with time they can become loose and prone to moving and even falling out altogether. This is because when we lose our teeth, our jaws begin to change shape with the absence of stimulation to our jawbone, normally provided by the roots of our teeth.

Dental Implants in HampshireThere are many products that claim to help keep dentures in place, but many are a hassle and don’t provide the stability that other treatments could.

Dental implants in Hampshire can secure loose dentures

You may have heard of the use of dental implants to replace missing teeth. It’s true that dental implants can provide the most stable and durable form of replacement teeth, with custom-made crowns to fit your smile.

But, in Hampshire, dental implants can also be used to secure loose dentures, creating a stable anchor for existing dentures or a new custom-made set of dentures to attach to. Here at Dental Implants Hampshire, we can provide a complete, friendly service, securing your dentures and giving you the confidence to enjoy the foods you love.

How dental implants work

In Hampshire, dental implant treatment creates such a secure anchor because the treatment actually integrates with the natural material of your jaw. The treatment works with your body, instead of against it. The treatment involves a minor surgical procedure in which a titanium screw is inserted into your jawbone.

Over time, the titanium screw with integrate with your jaw and once allowed to heal, your existing dentures can be attached or a custom-made set can be crafted specifically for this application.

Studies show that less than 15% of people who have a lower denture wear it and use it to eat with because they find it so uncomfortable, make the most of your dentures with denture stabilisation.

Getting dental implants can change your life

Dental implants are recommended so widely up and down the UK for many reasons. They can be the solution to a range of problems, from single missing teeth to replacing all of your teeth or even securing dentures in place, giving you the confidence to eat the foods you love, even that juicy steak.

Here at Dental Implants Hampshire, we believe nothing should stop you from enjoying the same quality of life you enjoyed before tooth loss. In Hampshire, dental implants are offered for any number of missing teeth.

Dental Implants in HampshireGetting 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.

Keep your denture in place with dental implants in Hampshire

People who have lost most or all of their natural teeth find it difficult to get used to dentures. In the long run, dentures tend to become loose and unstable, because the jawbone is gradually deteriorating. This can create many problems with eating and speaking, leading to sore spots in the mouth as well as further tooth loss.

At Dental Implants Hampshire, we understand that ill-fitting dentures can cause many problems and that’s why we provide stabilisation of your denture with dental implants in Hampshire. The mini dental implants we use for this process provide a viable and cost-effective solution for patients who’d like a permanent solution to tooth loss.

Dental Implants in HampshireWhat are mini dental implants?

Mini dental implants are shorter and narrower than regular dental implants but are still made of titanium. The head of the implant is shaped like a ball, instead of a screw, fitting into a socket-like attachment in the base of your denture. This way the denture snaps into position and is held securely in place. Typically, just four mini dental implants are used to stabilise a denture, although this can vary from patient to patient.

What is the procedure?

Your dentist will fit mini dental implants in the same way they would fit regular dental implants. First, they will determine your suitability and the amount of bone available in the jaw. This will enable them to create a treatment plan and design your dental implants with precision. One of the benefits of having mini implants instead of regular ones, is that less bone is required to hold them in place. This is because they are fixed at an angle into the jawbone. This procedure is quite simple, as the dental implants are simply screwed in position and there is no need to open up the gums and have stiches. Furthermore, mini dental implants can often be immediately ‘loaded’, which means that you can have your denture stabilised in only one day.

Who makes a good candidate for dental implants in Hampshire?

Do you have missing or badly damaged teeth that need to be replaced? If so, dental implants offer a viable solution to tooth loss, because unlike other tooth replacement options they are permanently attached into the jawbone. Dental implants can improve the look and function of your smile, giving you much needed confidence.

At Dental Implants Hampshire, dental implants are our treatment of choice for patients who have lost one, several or all of their natural teeth. Unlike conventional dentures and bridges, have the unique ability to fuse to the jawbone and create a stable and strong foundation for replacement teeth. These can be single crowns, implant-supported bridges or dentures.

Dental Implants in HampshireOur experienced dentists will examine your teeth and gums and determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants in Hampshire. Understanding the conditions that make a good dental implant candidate, making necessary changes, and exploring additional dental options can have you smiling confidently again.

Conditions for successful dental implants

Generally speaking, oral and overall health are the factors that you should take into consideration before considering dental implants. Age itself is not a barrier as long as you are an adult or all your permanent teeth have appeared. Most people who are in good health are good candidates for dental implants in Hampshire. Your dentist will evaluate the state of your teeth and gums and consider your eligibility for dental implants based on three criteria – healthy teeth and gums, a strong and healthy jawbone and good oral hygiene.

Patients who smoke or have active gum disease are not good candidates for dental implants, since both conditions can compromise healing time. As a matter of fact, gum disease is the leading cause of implant failure. Luckily, it can be fairly easily treated.

Furthermore, if you suffer from certain conditions, like diabetes or heart disease, you need to collaborate with your doctor and your dentist to improve your overall health before getting dental implants.

This may require extensive treatment, but every patient is evaluated on an individual basis. In many cases, our dentists will identify potential risks and inform you in detail so that you make the right decision.

Dental Implants in HampshireOur procedure for Same Day Teeth

First, you will meet with one of our experienced dentists to discuss your dental needs and expectations. They will review your medical and dental history, take x-rays, and take impressions of your mouth in order to create a temporary mould. Healthy bone tissue is really important to ensuring long-lasting, stable dental implants.

Highly detailed images captured by our CT scanner will reveal the quantity and quality of your existing bone, the position of your sinuses and provide detailed information about your teeth and gums. This information will help them precisely plan, angle, dimension and position of your dental implants.

During the same appointment, your dentist will discuss sedation options such as oral or IV sedation. Sedation is not required, and most patients won’t feel uncomfortable during or after the procedure because local anaesthetic is used. However, nervous patients can be sedated.

After this, you will be scheduled for your implant surgery. Your dentist will extract teeth, if necessary, before the surgery, and will place your dental implants and replacement teeth one after the other. Two weeks after surgery, you will return to the dental practice for a quick follow-up examination. After the dental implants have fully healed, usually in about 4-6 months, you will get your final teeth placed. However, you can use your temporary teeth as normal until then.

Stabilise your dentures with dental implants in Hampshire

Patients with loose and ill-fitting dentures can have their ability to eat, chew and speak severely affected. Loose dentures are also uncomfortable to wear and can hurt your gums and soft tissue. However, most people are reluctant to switch to dental implants, due to the costs involved. But what if we told you, that you can now take advantage of both treatments at the fraction of the cost?

At Dental Implants Hampshire, we offer a treatment known as denture stabilisation with dental implants in Hampshire. Through this treatment, your dentist will be able to stabilise your dentures with carefully-placed dental implants. You will be able to enjoy your favourite foods again and feel comfortable smiling, safe in the knowledge that your dentures are staying stable and strong.

Dental Implants in HampshireWhat is involved?

Dentures are secured in place with mini implants without the need for special pastes and strips. Mini implants are just like regular dental implants, but smaller. These are also fixed into the jawbone and fuse around the bone tissue over a short period of time. However, unlike regular dental implants, mini implants are fixed at an angle. They are topped with a special snap-on mechanism that allows the dentures to secure over them. In some cases, the dentures may be permanently attached to the dental implants.

The process involved in placing these mini implants only requires a short amount of time. Traditional dental implants require 6-12 weeks for healing, but mini implants only require one or two visits to our dental practice.

Benefits of implant-supported dentures

Implant-supported dentures have more benefits than traditional dentures. Dentures placed over dental implants look and feel more natural. Moreover, they are a lot more stable because the implants themselves are permanently attached to the jawbone.

More importantly, dental implants help keep your jawbone intact. This is because titanium encourages the growth of bone cells and the regeneration of bone tissue. Finally, with implant-supported dentures, you are less likely to experience sore spots, which are traditionally associated with conventional dentures.

There many reasons why dentures supported with dental implants in Hampshire are a better alternative to dentures. To learn more about dental-implant supported dentures, contact us today.

Get your chew back

Eating well is not only one of life’s fundamental pleasures, it is also vitally important for good health. It is only when you have lost your ability to chew that you find out how important teeth are. Thankfully, we are living in the 21st century, when, for the first time ever, you can get your full chewing ability back after you have lost your teeth, with dental implants in Hampshire.

Denture downsides

Dental Implants in HampshireAnyone who has ever had dentures will tell you how frustrating eating can become. Dentures have come a long, long way in terms of aesthetics, but nothing can alter the fact that dentures can only give you back about a quarter of your original chewing power, and not much actual bite at all. In fact, when you get dentures, you also get a long list of foods to avoid, and advice to cut up your food before you eat. That’s because dentures rely on suction with the gums below them to hold them in place. In Hampshire, dental implants rely on artificial tooth roots, and therefore give you back 100% of your chew.

Best of both worlds

If you are a denture wearer, we have good news for you. Here at Dental Implants Hampshire, we can combine the best of both treatments to restore your chew and bite, with implant-retained dentures.

When you choose to have dental implants in Hampshire to hold your dentures in place, you will only need between 4 and 6 implants per jaw to do the job. If you are one of the 85% of denture wearers who do not wear their lower denture because you find it rubs and interferes with your speech, having dental implants in Hampshire to stabilise your lower denture could be a real game changer.

Another plus with using Dental Implants Hampshire is that we offer a service we call Same Day Teeth. You arrive in the morning to have implant surgery and while you are relaxing afterwards, your new crowns are being made in our on-site laboratory. We fit your new crowns late in the afternoon and you leave us ready to eat out that night if you want to.

You don’t have to be patient

When you hear about dental implants in Hampshire, you probably hear about how long it takes from the first consultation to finally walking out of the dentist with your new teeth, ready to eat your first juicy steak in years. You may hear stories of implant journeys that typically take 3 or 4 months. You may even hear stories of complicated implant journeys that have taken upwards of a year from start to finish. Well, at Dental Implants Hampshire, it doesn’t have to be that way. Here, you could get your implants put in, crowns and all, in just one day.

Dental Implants in HampshireThe perks of getting dental implants with us

In Hampshire, dental implants really are possible to have fitted in one day when you come to our dedicated implant centre. There are several reasons why having dental implants in Hampshire can take such a long time. One is that the crowns need to be made offsite, so the dentist has to take impressions of old teeth, or remaining teeth and then send these, along with any good photographs, to a laboratory to be made. That’s all well and good, but there’s bound to be a queue, and creating the crowns from porcelain can take a while, if only because the lab has got other orders it needs to complete first.

When you get your dental implants in Hampshire with us at Dental Implants Hampshire, we do away with queuing to get your teeth made by having our own technical laboratory onsite. So, we can make your artificial crowns for you on the day that you have your dental implants inserted. We call this service Same Day Teeth.

Here’s how it goes. You come into us first thing in the morning for your implant surgery. We remove any failing teeth, as agreed beforehand, and then gently insert your implants to replace the tooth roots you have lost. While you are relaxing in our recovery area, our highly skilled technicians are custom-making the crowns that will go on top of your implants. This may be a single crown, a bridge of 2 or 3 teeth, or a full or partial denture.

Late in the afternoon, your crowns will be fitted and you will leave with new teeth in place.
