Lets talk about dental implants in Basingstoke

When I say dental implants in Basingstoke, I don’t actually mean that Basingstoke is having dental implants, I mean that people just like you are having dental implants in Basingstoke.  Of course, one of the best things about a dental implant is that no one should be able to tell that it is not your own tooth, or teeth including you. There are so many reasons why we end up losing our teeth, gum disease is the biggest cause of tooth loss, followed by decay. Whatever the reason, the result is the same for us all.

Dental Implants in BasingstokeWhen you lose a tooth, you also begin to lose the bone that supported it. This is due to a natural process called resorption. Denture wearers find that over a period of time the bones of their jaws gradually shrink, giving them sagging lips and sunken cheeks. As the jawbone shrinks, this can affect any remaining teeth causing them to move out of their correct position, which can result in greater difficulty eating or talking and eventually, further tooth loss.

Dental implants, a great supporting act

Unlike bridges and dentures which only restore the appearance and some of the function of your teeth, dental implants restore both the appearance and the full function of a tooth. Because they provide a solid foundation for all forms of tooth replacement from single crowns to a full arch of dentures, dentists regard dental implants as the gold-standard for tooth replacement. Other benefits of dental implants include the support of teeth on either side of the implant in the case of a single tooth, and the continued stability of the jawbone.

Although dental implants are the newest form of tooth replacement, they have been in use since the 1960s and have proved themselves to be a reliable and effective solution to tooth loss for people of all ages. Continued research has lead to the development of a number of different types of dental implants, and there are also no contra-indications that prevent anyone from benefiting from having dental implants placed. At Glenholme Dental, we are helping more and more of our patients to enjoy the feeling of having teeth that allow them to eat their favourite foods and talk with confidence.

Dental implants in Basingstoke – everything you need to know

Dental implants provide patients with long-lasting, non-removable replacement teeth attached to small posts in the jawbone and gums. This treatment has become increasingly popular in recent years because it offers an attractive and functional alternative to traditional removable dentures and bridges.

At Glenholme Dental in Basingstoke, dental implant treatment is custom-tailored to suit your unique needs and aesthetic goals. Whether you are looking to replace one tooth, multiple teeth, or achieve a full mouth restoration, our experienced dentists will develop an individualised treatment plan for rebuilding your smile.

Dental Implants in BasingstokeHow do dental implants work?

Dental implants are made of two main parts: a metal post that is surgically embedded into the jawbone and a prosthetic crown, denture or bridge on top.

The metal portion of the dental implant is typically made of titanium or titanium alloy and is designed like a screw, with multiple filaments to stabilise the dental implant in place. Because they are made of titanium, dental implants are compatible with human tissue. Through a process known as osseointegration, the jawbone will actually fuse with the dental implant over a few weeks, making it a very robust and long-lasting solution.

After the dental implants have healed, your dentist will attach prosthetic teeth to them. These teeth can be either individual crowns, or implant-retained bridges and dentures. Replacement teeth are made of high-quality materials to resemble your natural teeth. They are also colour-matched to your existing teeth, making them indistinguishable from your natural teeth. Unlike other tooth replacement methods, dental implants restore your ability to eat, bite and chew completely.

Getting dental implants requires several appointments so your dentist can check on the condition of the implant site and healing process. Treatment is complete once your new replacement teeth are fitted. However, your dentist will encourage regular dental check-ups to ensure the health and longevity of your dental implants.

Teeth in a day with dental implants in Basingstoke

‘Teeth in a day’ is an innovative implant restoration method, which has transformed the way dentists replace a full set of missing teeth. Conventional dentures are often uncomfortable, inconvenient and unstable, since they tend to become loose over time. Teeth in a day treatment replaces your missing teeth with a full dental bridge or denture supported by 4 to 6 dental implants. With fewer implants needed than you would imagine for replacing a whole set of teeth, overall treatment time and cost is reduced significantly.

Dental Implants in BasingstokeAt Glenholme Dental, our experienced dentists can skilfully provide you with a reliable full-mouth dental restoration in just a single day. Even the seemingly most hopeless cases of complete tooth loss can be recovered with dental implants in Basingstoke.

Dental implants are small titanium posts, which are inserted into the jawbone and act as replacement tooth roots. Titanium has no ill effect on the human body and bonds readily with bone tissue to form a steady platform upon which artificial, permanent teeth are mounted.

How we do it

Prior to implant surgery, your dentist will examine your teeth and gums thoroughly and complete a dental scan. This allows our dentists to evaluate your case in 3D, which greatly improves safety and treatment outcomes.

On the day of your operation, any teeth will be removed and dental implants will be placed immediately after. On the very same day, permanent teeth will also be attached to your implants. For your comfort, procedures are completed with local anaesthesia and oral sedation or if requested, intravenous sedation.

Advantages of same day teeth

This method offers a lot of advantages over traditional dental implants in terms of cost, efficiency and functionality. With only 4 to 6 dental implants required, the overall cost is lowered significantly. Placing dental implants at a specific angle into your jawbone provides maximum support, so bone grafting is usually unnecessary.

Denture stabilisation with dental implants in Basingstoke

Do you have dentures which have become loose over time? Perhaps they slip around your mouth and you find it difficult to eat, smile and talk with confidence? Too many people who have traditional dentures lose their patience with them, simply because their false teeth refuse to stay put. Luckily, nowadays, dental implants offer a stable way to keep dentures in place and allow you to continue your daily activities with confidence.

At Glenholme Dental, we understand the importance of a beautiful smile and a strong, healthy bite. However, not all people can afford to replace their missing teeth with dental implants. In Basingstoke, we put an end to your slipping dentures through stabilising them with dental implants. This way you can enjoy the benefits of both treatments at a fraction of the cost.

Dental Implants in BasingstokeHow does it work?

Implant-retained dentures can be fixed or removable. The latter come in two different types: bar-retained dentures and ball-retained dentures. In both cases, your dentures will be considerably smaller than conventional dentures. Both types of dentures require at least two dental implants per jaw for support.

Bar-retained dentures consist of a thin metal bar that follows the arc of your jawbone. Your Basingstoke dentist will attach the denture to two to five dental implants and it will be securely clipped with attachments fitted to the bar, the denture, or often both. Ball-retained dentures, on the other hand, are designed to fit into the dental implants with the aid of ball-shaped attachments. Both types of dentures are very steady and cannot be removed unless you take them out before sleep.

Benefits of implant-supported dentures

Implant-retained dentures look and feel more natural, because the implant itself is firmly attached to the jawbone. Because the dentures are fixed to dental implants, they cannot move or slip, thus there is no need for messy adhesives.

At the same time, dental implants help preserve your jawbone. Unlike conventional dentures that simply sit on your teeth and gums, implant-retained dentures are secured on dental implants, which prevent bone deterioration and stimulate further bone growth.

If your denture is loose, slips around your mouth and causes problems with your speech, you could be a good candidate for this treatment. Patients who want to have their missing teeth replaced with dental implants in a day must not be suffering from gum disease or other oral health problems and need to have enough bone to support the dental implants. However, if you have suffered significant bone loss, our dentists will recommend bone grafting. Finally, same-day implant candidates should be in good overall health and commit to good oral hygiene before and following implant surgery in order to avoid future complications.
