Do you long for a full set of teeth?

Are missing teeth causing you problems? Do you have to restrict yourself to soft foods or find that the way you speak has changed? Perhaps your heart sinks when you look in the mirror and you worry about social interactions or having your photograph taken. If this sounds like you, then Dental Implants Hampshire can help. We have many years of experience in fitting dental implants in Hampshire, so can carry out the procedure even when the case is more complicated.

What is involved in treatment?

Dental Implants in HampshireThe first stage is a consultation to find out what you want to achieve and assess the state of your teeth and gums. Your mouth and jaw need to be healthy so, if necessary, preparatory work is carried out and then the implants are fitted during a minor operation. This involves placing a small metal screw into the jaw under local anaesthetic. The bone and blood vessels mesh around the metal, holding it securely in place. Your dental implants can then be used as a stable base for fixed dentures, crowns or bridges. All that is left for you to do is relish your favourite food again, smile with confidence and enjoy living life to the full. For our patients in Hampshire, dental implants have proved to be a long-term investment in their health and appearance.

Can I have dental implants in Hampshire?

Patients considering dental implants in Hampshire often ask whether the treatment is suitable for them. In some cases, the bone is not strong enough to support implants, particularly if you have been wearing dentures or coping with missing teeth for some time. This is because the tissues of the jaw may have started to shrink back, due to lack of stimulation from teeth roots. However, we are delighted to offer sinus lifts to ensure adequate bone density, making dental implants an option that is available to many more people.

We are proud to be able to offer our patients in Hampshire dental implants, whatever their situation. Become one of the hundreds of people who have said hello to the benefits of dental implants and goodbye to the problems of missing teeth.

Is your mouth missing something?

Losing your teeth is more than inconvenient. It can affect your appearance, knock your confidence and make everyday activities, such as eating and speaking, difficult. Many people tell us at Dental Implants Hampshire that they have tried dentures, but found them hard to get used to or unreliable. If you are tired of worrying about how you look and miss being able to enjoy your favourite foods, then you may like to consider dental implants. For our patients in Hampshire, dental implants provide a permanent option for replacing your teeth whether you need a single tooth, several teeth or a full mouth restoration.

Dental Implants in HampshireHow do they work?

Dental implants are small metal screws that are placed into the jaw during a minor operation. As the blood vessels and tissues in your jaw mesh around them, they become stable and provide a secure base for replacement teeth, bridges or dentures. It is often possible to have extractions if needed, install the implants and fit your new teeth in the same day. Having dental implants in Hampshire is normally very comfortable, as we use a local anaesthetic and your mouth should settle down quickly. You need to care for your implants in the same way as ordinary teeth to avoid plaque accumulation and gum disease. Patients who have had dental implants in Hampshire have found that they can last for decades with the correct care.

What are the advantages?

For many people in Hampshire, dental implants have given them a new lease of life. Your smile will immediately look better, and you will be able to bite, chew and talk as normal. Soon, choosing foods you like, rather than those you think you can manage, will be an everyday reality rather than a distant memory. This improves your nutrition and as well as your quality of life. In addition, since dental implants work in the same way as the roots of natural teeth, they strengthen the jaw. The pressure exerted during eating stimulates the bone tissue, which prevents it from shrinking back, as can happen with denture wearers.

Aftercare and maintenance of your Hampshire dental implants

If you have decided to replace your missing teeth with dental implants in Hampshire, or have just had an implant procedure, you may be wondering how to take good care of your newly restored teeth. Our experienced dentists at Dental Implants Hampshire will give you all the information you need in order to take good care of your implants. The success of your dental implants depends on taking good care of them at all stages of your treatment and beyond. Here is some advice to ensure the success of your dental implant treatment.

Dental Implants in HampshireHow dental implants work

Dental implants are small, screw-shaped, titanium posts, which are surgically inserted into the jawbone where tooth roots are missing. The bone tissue bonds with the titanium, a material which is compatible with the human body, creating a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth such as crowns, bridges or dentures. Unlike other tooth replacement options that merely sit on the gums, dental implants look, feel and function exactly like natural teeth.

After you’ve got your implants

Once you’ve had your dental implants in Hampshire, our dentists will give you all the necessary information needed for getting through the healing stage. You will be advised to brush your teeth with a soft toothbrush and your dentist will give you a special antibacterial mouthwash to use for at least a week after the procedure.

You will be advised against eating hard and chewy foods in the first few days after your procedure. As your dental implants heal, you can reintroduce hard foods in your diet as you wish.

It is normal to experience swelling after the operation, however, an ice pack will help it go away. The same applies for mild bleeding. You may experience bleeding for a few hours after the operation, but it should go away on its own. If swelling and bleeding persist, please contact your dentist.

It can take between 3 to 6 months for dental implants to fuse with your jawbone, after which you can have your replacement teeth attached on top. Taking good care of your dental implants and visiting your dentist regularly, will help you get through the healing process without any problems. The same goes for after your treatment is complete.

Health benefits of dental implants in Hampshire

Whether the result of an accident, old age or disease, tooth loss can affect your self-esteem and your ability to chew and speak properly. More importantly, tooth loss can also lead to jawbone deterioration and further tooth loss. When a tooth is lost, the jawbone begins to shrink and becomes fragile due to the lack of stimulation. This way, losing teeth can also change the shape of your face causing you to look prematurely aged.

At Dental Implants Hampshire, dental implants are our treatment of choice for tooth loss since we know just how big a difference they can make in the lives of our patients. Unlike removable dentures and bridges that simply sit on the gums, dental implants in Hampshire fuse with the jawbone and protect the bone tissue from further deterioration. Dental implants are not only aesthetically pleasing but come with many health benefits.

Dental Implants in HampshireWhat are dental implants?

Dental implants are a great way to replace your missing teeth, and if properly maintained, can last a lifetime. They are small titanium posts, surgically inserted into the jawbone. Their main purpose is to replace the missing tooth roots. As they made of titanium, a material that is very compatible with bone tissue, dental implants fuse to the jawbone over time, creating a sturdy foundation for replacement teeth such as crowns, bridges or dentures. Once in place, dental implants do not differ from the rest of your teeth, with the exception that they cannot get cavities.

Health benefits of dental implants in Hampshire

Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants offer a permanent solution to tooth loss. While bridges and dentures have their benefits and uses, they need to be replaced over time. Dental implants, on the other hand, can last a lifetime if you take good care of them.

Lost teeth can cause bone loss, gum recession, and other oral problems. When a tooth is lost, the rest of the teeth start to crowd together in order to fill the gap. This can lead to crooked and misaligned teeth as well as further tooth loss over time. Dental implants can restore balance to your mouth, prevent bone loss and help keep your remaining teeth healthy and strong.

Dental implants in Hampshire: all you need to know

Missing teeth can compromise your health and self-esteem in many ways. Not only can they make you feel self-conscious while eating, speaking, laughing or socialising, but they can also create health problems if not replaced. Luckily, modern dentistry has come a long way and, today, dental implants can give you replacement teeth that look, feel and function as naturally as your original teeth.

At Dental Implants Hampshire, dental implants are our preferred treatment option, when it comes to replacing missing teeth. Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants in Hampshire are durable, attractive and offer numerous health benefits. Our experienced implant dentists will guide you through every step of the procedure and answer all of your questions and concerns. We are committed to providing excellent dental care in a comfortable and relaxed setting.

Dental Implants in HampshireHow dental implants work?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots, surgically placed into the jawbone. Made of titanium that is compatible with bone tissue, dental implants fuse with the jawbone to support replacement teeth such as crowns, dentures or bridges.

Advantages of dental implants

Unlike dentures, dental implants do not slip or become loose over time. They are permanent, giving you the same stability and security as your natural teeth. Dental implants prevent jawbone deterioration and encourage the growth of bone tissue. Unlike bridges, they do not rely on neighbouring teeth for support and do not compromise tooth structure. Dental implants do not require a lot of maintenance – you can brush and floss them the same way you take care of your natural teeth. Finally, dental implants are the ideal cosmetic solution for missing teeth since they prevent jawbone deterioration that leads to a sunken, aged facial appearance.

Am I a good candidate for dental implants in Hampshire?

Generally, patients with healthy teeth and gums are eligible for dental implants as long as they have enough bone tissue left in their jawbone to support them. If your jawbone has already deteriorated significantly, then bone tissue can first be restored with the help of bone grafts. Sometimes, chronic illnesses like diabetes and heart disease can interfere with the healing time of dental implants. It is therefore always advisable to let your dentist know of any health problems you have.

Implant solutions to fit your lifestyle

Dental Implants Hampshire offers several different implant solutions to fit into your life. Our dentists and practice staff will determine if you are a candidate for dental implants in Hampshire and will personally guide you through your individual choices and options to get back your happier, healthier smile.

Snap-on denture implants

Dental Implants in HampshireThere are several types of implants and implant systems which can be used to secure dentures successfully. Our systems provide ‘snap-on’ denture stabilisation so that your dentures stay in place, yet can still be removed for successful cleaning and care. These can be a more affordable option than non-removable choices and are ideal for many of our denture-wearing patients.

Full-arch implant solutions

We also offer other implant systems that are more permanent and not removable by the patient. They provide additional support and the bonus of fully natural tooth functionality.

Single and multiple tooth implants

There is also a range of options where dental implants in Hampshire are used with a bridge or crown to replace one or more missing teeth. They provide a robust permanent long-term solution to replace missing teeth. With prices starting at £2,500, maybe it’s time to consider filling in those gaps.

Dental implants history

While the idea of replacing missing teeth with various tooth substitutes has been around for thousands of years, modern implant dentistry really began with the introduction of titanium post installations in the 1960s.

Can I afford it?

We know that dental implants in Hampshire can be quite pricey for many people. Advances in technology in recent years have essentially halved the cost of dental implants. We’re proud to be a part of this, as it allows us to offer you a healthier smile for less. We are also proud to offer your full procedure at one fixed cost that we guarantee will not change or increase.

That is why we have introduced a payment plan to spread the cost of your treatments with us. We offer our finance through Chrysalis Finance. Our options include 0% interest when payments are spread over 12 months, or 9.9% APR if they are over five years.

Am I too old for dental implants?

Providing your overall health is good there are no age restrictions for dental implants. They provide a renewed self-confidence in your smile and speech and provide renewed chewing stability, as well as bringing back the foods that were once off limits when you suffered with missing teeth.

How long does do they take?

Dental implants in Hampshire may take anywhere from several weeks to several months to be put in place, depending upon the quality of the bone in which the implants are placed. If an additional procedure is required to supplement the bone, the total treatment time can vary between six and nine months, unless you opt for same-day dental implants in Hampshire, which is available to our patients with a healthy jawbone.

Dental Implants in HampshireThat sounds painful

Most of our patients report that the discomfort is far less than they expected and generally gives them no more discomfort then having a root canal or a tooth extracted. Of course, our dentists provide anesthesia during the procedure and although everyone’s tolerances are different, most patients feel comfortable simply taking paracetamol afterwards.

How long do they last?

Dental implants in Hampshire are designed to be permanent; however, there are a few factors that may help the longevity of your dental implants. Proper home care and regular check-ups are necessary to ensure long term success.

Dental implants are one of the most successful procedures in the dental field, with documented success rates  of over 97%. Modern dental implants have been around for over 30 years and various clinical research demonstrates that with correct care, implants can be successful throughout the lifetime of a patient.

When should a tooth be extracted and replaced with a dental implant?

If a tooth has severe gum disease that has eroded the bone that supports the teeth, dental implants in Hampshire could help. Sometimes in these cases, it is preferable to extract the tooth, eliminate the infection and replace the tooth with a dental implant.

Another reason to consider dental implants is if a tooth has had a root canal, leaving the tooth brittle and susceptible to fracture. Teeth with severe fractures are usually removed and are ideal candidates for replacement with dental implants in Hampshire.

Denture stabilisation with dental implants in Hampshire

Do you have dentures that are loose and uncomfortable? Perhaps they tend to fall out when you eat or speak, and you find them difficult to eat, smile and socialise confidently with? If so, denture stabilisation with dental implants may be the right solution for you.

At Dental Implants Hampshire in Hampshire, dental implants can used as a cost-effective method to stabilise loose dentures. Denture stabilisation can have a very positive effect on your quality of life. Imagine being able to eat and speak with confidence, without fear of your denture moving or falling out. No more awkward social situations or limitations on your diet.

Dental Implants in HampshireWhat are dental implants?

Dental implants are an artificial replacement for a tooth’s root. They are surgically fixed into the jawbone and securely hold crowns, bridges or dentures, in the same way, that roots support natural teeth. Dental implant surgery is an outpatient surgery performed in different stages that usually takes a few months. Much of the waiting time between the implant surgery and the final mounting of replacement teeth is devoted to healing and waiting for the growth of new bone tissue in your jaw.

How does denture stabilisation with dental implants work?

Denture stabilisation with dental implants in Hampshire is a simple and effective treatment that can stop dentures rubbing and causing discomfort, while holding them permanently in place. Our patients can opt for permanently fixed dentures, involving a full fixed bridge which sits on a number of dental implants (typically between four and six), or removable dentures, which are safely attached to two and four implants with small clips on top. Both options are ideal for patients who wish to replace their teeth permanently without having to invest heavily in individual dental implants.

Am I a suitable candidate?

Normally, most patients with missing teeth are eligible for denture stabilisation. However, only a full and detailed dental examination will be able to tell for sure. If you have lost much of your jawbone tissue, your Hampshire dentist may suggest bone grafting to build up the amount of bone and ensure the longevity of your dental implants.

Dental implants in Hampshire – your best option for missing teeth

Advances in dentistry along with brushing, flossing, and regular check-ups make it possible for many of us to maintain our natural smiles for a lifetime. However, sometimes, our teeth just can’t keep up. If you have lost one or several teeth due to gum disease or injury, dental implants can help you regain your smile and your confidence.

At Dental Implants Hampshire in Hampshire, dental implants are our treatment of choice for patients who wish to replace their missing teeth permanently. Dental implants are surgically fixed into the jawbone to support crowns, bridges, or full dentures. Our dental implant treatments include single dental implants, multiple teeth dental implants as well as denture stabilisation or Same Day Teeth with dental implants in Hampshire.

Dental Implants in HampshireSingle or multiple dental implants

Dental implants are very versatile. If you are only missing one tooth, one implant plus one replacement tooth will restore your smile quickly and permanently. If on the other hand, you are missing several teeth in a row, a few strategically placed dental implants can support a permanent bridge. Similarly, if you have lost all of your teeth, a full bridge or full denture can be stabilised in your mouth with a procedure known as Same Day Teeth.

Benefits of dental implants

Unlike conventional bridges and dentures, which are not fixed to the jawbone, dental implants are permanently attached to the jawbone and become a part of your mouth. This way not only do they look more natural, but also feel and act more like your normal teeth, with an added biting force. And because they do not rely on neighbouring, healthy teeth for support, dental implants do not affect your oral health. More importantly, whereas bridges are only expected to last 7-10 years and dentures need replacement every few years, dental implants will typically last a lifetime with proper oral care.

You don’t have to live with missing teeth or uncomfortable dentures that reduce your quality of life. Located in the heart of Hampshire, both our clinics have been providing help and care for dental implants in Hampshire for more than 10 years. Contact us today to schedule your consultation.

Rooting your new smile: dental implants in Hampshire

Tooth loss is a very common condition suffered by many people worldwide. And while it is typically associated with older people and gum disease, tooth loss from trauma can also affect the young. If you have lost one or several teeth, there are quite a few options available to replace them, yet none of them are as permanent or as viable as dental implants.

At Dental Implants Hampshire in Hampshire, dental implants provide a wide variety of solutions to replace missing teeth. Tailored to each case, dental implants can help you replace an individual tooth or an entire mouth of teeth.

Dental Implants in HampshireWhy replace missing teeth?

Missing teeth are more than just a cosmetic flaw – they can also cause many serious dental complications if not properly replaced. When you miss one or more teeth, you may not be able to use your mouth properly and this can lead to jaw clenching, tooth grinding, and headaches. Moreover, missing teeth cause a lack of stimulation to the jawbone, which can lead to bone deterioration and bone loss.

Last but not least, healthy teeth may shift in order to compensate for the gap in between the teeth, leading to misaligned and loose teeth. For all these reasons, replacing missing teeth with dental implants in Hampshire is essential for the preservation of your smile.

How do dental implants work?

A dental implant is a screw-shaped post that is used as an artificial replacement for natural tooth roots. Made of titanium, a lightweight material which is compatible with the human body, dental implants are surgically fixed into the upper and lower jaws to replace one or more missing teeth. By attaching to the jawbone and gum tissue, they provide a permanent foundation for artificial replacement teeth, such as dental crowns, bridges, and dentures.

Benefits of dental implants

Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants prevent bone loss and skin sagging and help you maintain a more youthful appearance. Dental implants look, feel and function just like your natural teeth. They are strong and durable and can last a lifetime with proper care. Unlike bridges that require modification of your healthy teeth, dental implants protect and support your natural teeth.
