Avoiding gummy smiles

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, it can be difficult to decide what treatment is best for you. Although some patients might choose dentures because they fear the possibility of pain with dental implants, it is only a temporary discomfort that is required in order to achieve long-lasting comfort. Whatever you choose, it’s important to choose a treatment that ensures you smile with confidence. That means replacing your missing teeth, instead of facing a future filled with gummy smiles.

Dental Implants in BasingstokeAt Glenholme Dental, it’s certainly worth considering dental implants in Basingstoke as a long-term and permanent solution to tooth loss. If losing your teeth has meant losing your smile, then filling in the gaps will help you find it and bring it straight back.

The dental implant for you

An implants simulates the work of a natural tooth root, fixing a small titanium screw into the jawbone where the tooth is missing. Over time, and depending on you as an individual, the screw integrates with the bone and becomes ready for a new, natural-looking tooth to be placed onto it.

Are you missing multiple teeth? The procedure works just the same way, only another small screw can be placed on the jawbone to form a base for a bridge to be fixed into place to replace several teeth.

No room for the bad stuff

Following treatment, you’ll be able to grin without the worry of a gappy smile. Not only that, but good oral hygiene will be restored. Filling in the gaps means that there’s less room for plaque to build up for the likes of gum disease and tooth decay.
