Dental implants in Basingstoke – what to expect during your consultation

Choosing the most viable treatment to restore your missing teeth is an important decision that will affect your appearance and oral health for years to come.

At Glenhomle Dental Centre, we try to make this decision as simple as possible by offering dental implants in Basingstoke. Unlike other tooth replacement options, dental implants are embedded into the jawbone, where they create a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel and function just like real teeth.

If you would like a personalised treatment plan and to find out exactly what we can do for your missing teeth, then a comprehensive consultation with one of our dentists will be ideal. We individually tailor each course of treatment so that it lightens any anxiety you may have, in addition to restoring function and aesthetics to your smile.

Our dentist will perform a thorough examination of your teeth and gums in order to determine the quality and density of your jawbone. This examination may involve x-rays for a clearer view of your jawbone. If you have inadequate bone density, we will discuss all your available options.

We will also question you about your oral hygiene routine, your medical and oral health history as well as personal habits, such as smoking, that may affect the success of the implant surgery. Smoking, for example, may disqualify a patient, because tobacco impedes the healing process. Moreover, patients who suffer from uncontrolled diabetes or heart disease will be evaluated on an individual basis.

During the consultation process, you will be given the opportunity to ask any questions that you may have. Based on the results of your examination, we will explore all the available options to find those best suited to your dental needs. Even if you cannot have traditional dental implants in Basingstoke, there are numerous implant treatments to choose from including All-on-4 dental implants.
