What 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.
