Tooth decay, gum disease or injury can all lead to tooth loss at any age. The unsightly gaps in your teeth can have a negative effect on your self-image and confidence. They also present day-to-day challenges at mealtimes and long-term dental health consequences. You can overcome all of these hurdles with effective modern dental care at Glenholme Dental in Basingstoke. Dental implants are one of the most reliable solutions around. However many teeth you have lost, we can fit you with dental implants, so you can enjoy a healthy smile for years to come.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are small screws made of lightweight titanium. They are placed into the jawbone, where they function as artificial tooth roots. Replacement teeth are then attached on top. Compared with traditional dentures, dental implants in Basingstoke provide superior stability. This is because once in the jawbone they encourage new bone to mesh around them, locking them in place. This gives them the added benefit of preventing jawbone shrinkage, which is a common consequence of tooth loss.
A versatile and long lasting solution
A single dental implant is all that is needed to secure multiple replacement teeth. This makes dental implants an ideal treatment option for the loss of several teeth, as well as the loss of a single tooth. What’s more, with All-on-4 technology an entire jaw of teeth can be replaced with just four dental implants.
Built to last, your dental implants in Basingstoke can last as long as your natural teeth, with good dental hygiene.
Your dental implant journey
At our practice in Basingstoke, dental implants are carefully placed into your jawbone under local anaesthetic. This ensures your discomfort is kept to a minimum. If you are feeling especially nervous, we also offer sedation. Once your dental implants have had time to fully integrate into your jawbone, you can have your replacement teeth attached. The final outcome is a natural look and feel. With a complete reconstruction of your missing teeth, you can get back to enjoying mealtimes and socialising with a smile.
