Are missing teeth ruining your smile? Wish there was a solution that didn’t involve lifelong denture use? With modern dentistry at Glenholme Dental in Basingstoke, dental implants offer you just that. This clinically proven solution to tooth loss provides long lasting, reliable results for all manner of tooth loss scenarios. Whether you have lost one tooth in an accident or a whole mouthful from disease, dental implants in Basingstoke are a solution worth exploring.
How does it all work?
Dental implants can be thought of as artificial tooth roots. These small titanium screws are placed into your jawbone, where they support local bone growth. This locks them into place and provides a secure base to attach replacement teeth. This level of stability simply can’t be achieved with traditional dentures. Without the need for denture adhesives, dental implants can give you peace of mind, knowing your replacement teeth won’t budge. They also protect your jawbone and gums from shrinking, which occurs after tooth loss.
Your implant treatment
At our friendly and modern practice in Basingstoke, dental implants are fitted with precision and care by an experienced implant dentist. Local anaesthetic means discomfort will be kept to a minimum during your procedure. If after talking to our dentist, you are still feeling anxious about your treatment, we also provide sedation. You will need time to heal after your implants have been placed. On your return visit, we can then get going on designing and attaching your custom-made replacement teeth. A single dental implant can hold multiple replacement teeth. What’s more with All-on-4 technology, a total of just four dental implants is needed to reconstruct a whole jaw of teeth.
Can anyone have dental implants?
If you would like to enjoy the benefits of dental implants in Basingstoke, we will do our very best to ensure you can. Dental implants work best in a healthy mouth. So conditions such as tooth decay and gum disease will need to be taken care of first. We will also check if you have enough jawbone to securely hold your dental implants.
