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.

Restoring your smile with dental implants

Missing teeth are an age-old problem, not just a sign of old age. There are many reasons why we lose our teeth: accidents, wear and tear, or perhaps due to infection. Whatever the reason, or the age you are when you lose teeth, it can have a major effect on your confidence and your oral health. Missing teeth can make eating difficult, and sometimes the teeth on either side of the gap can start to move out of place.

Dental Implants in BasingstokeIn the past, bridges and dentures were the only options available to restore the appearance and function of your teeth. Unfortunately neither option was entirely satisfactory. To fit dental bridges it is necessary to re-shape the teeth on either side of the gap to fix crowns in place. Thankfully there is now another option, dental implants are the newest method your dentist can use to restore your smile. Here at Glenholme Dental in Basingstoke, dental implants are being used in a variety of different ways.

Dental Implants in BasingstokeWhat 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.
