The loss of a tooth can affect more than just your appearance. While having a gap in your smile may affect your confidence, it can also provide an awkward-to-clean space in which food particles and bacteria can hide. The loss of several teeth can lead to bone deterioration, which alters the underlying shape of your face. At our practice in Hampshire, dental implants are a solution to these problems. Our replacement teeth look and feel natural, helping you to enjoy your food like you used to before you lost your teeth, while enhancing the aesthetic appeal of your smile.
The first stage of your treatment will be a consultation with the friendly dental professionals at Dental Implants Hampshire. They will assess your teeth in detail, and talk to you about your dental history, to formulate a treatment plan that will provide the particular enhancements you want to achieve. The dentist will also make sure that your oral health and hygiene is of a high enough standard to proceed. Whether you need to replace one tooth lost in a sporting injury, or several teeth that have decayed over the years in Hampshire, dental implants need to be received in a condition of good oral health.
Once you’re ready, the dentist will insert small titanium posts into your jawbone, in a minor surgical procedure. After a period of healing, you’ll return to the surgery to have the replacement teeth securely affixed to these posts.
The material of the jawbone meshes with the implanted posts, creating a stable foundation for the new teeth. You can bite and chew food with much more confidence than you’d have with removable dentures. And people who’ve had dental implants in Hampshire can find that certain words and phrases are easier to pronounce once their implants are in place.
We offer payment plans to help you spread the cost of your implants. By making them more affordable, we make the benefits of dental implants in Hampshire more achievable. If the implants are properly looked after, you can enjoy the benefits for the rest of your life.
