At Hampshire Dental Implants not only do we care about your smile, we care that you have as pleasant a time as possible while we are treating you.
Dental Implants are the right solution for a large number of patients who need to have the root of tooth replaced when it has deteriorated or failed.
Dental implants are a highly effective way of permanently replacing missing teeth in Hampshire. Dental implants have been in use for long enough for the dental profession to strongly recommend these as a safe and reliable way of replacing teeth, especially as they have an extremely long lifespan.
A dental implant is a small metal screw, usually titanium, placed in the jaw to replace a missing tooth root. The titanium stimulates the bone to grow around the metal and along with this, small blood vessels are also stimulated to regrow. The bone meshes with the titanium screw and holds it in place as it would a natural tooth. Once this has been achieved, custom-made artificial teeth, either single crowns, bridges, or dentures are fixed onto the screw, to give a more natural look and greater stability. This means you can eat, chew and bite as normal, and you avoid that sunken look that develops with missing teeth. Dental implants are a great confidence booster.
Dental implants are no more difficult to clean than normal teeth.
Although dental implant treatment does require oral surgery, in Hampshire, dental implants do not have to be a painful or frightening experience. At Hampshire Dental Implants, implant procedures are carried out under local anaesthetic. This is usually highly effective as the nerve supply is more limited in the jaw than in a tooth. However, patients who are anxious about dental procedures can receive sedation so that they can completely relax during the implant procedure. Any mild discomfort afterwards can usually be alleviated with over-the-counter painkillers, and rest for 24 hours after the surgery.
