More and more people are turning to dental implants as the ideal solution for replacing one or more missing teeth.
Here at Glenholme Dental in Basingstoke, dental implants come from one company only –Nobel Bio care. We use Nobel Bio care because they are the longest-established implant company and are still leaders in the implant field. All their implants come with a lifetime guarantee and a warranty card, so that you can receive care for your implants from a Nobel Bio care dentist anywhere in the world.
If you don’t know much about dental implants in Basingstoke, here’s a quick explanation of what they are and what they do. Dental implants replace the entire tooth, including the root. The implant itself is a titanium screw that is implanted into the jawbone during a surgical procedure. Once in place, the titanium stimulates the bone tissue to regenerate and mesh with it, thus holding it in place as it would a natural tooth. This takes several weeks to months. Once the jaw has healed around the implant, an abutment (internal screw) is fitted into the implant and onto that a custom-made artificial crown, or bridge is permanently fixed.
As you can see, it takes some time to go through the several stages of receiving dental implants in Basingstoke, and the healing stage, after the implant has been inserted, can be quite uncomfortable.
However, the benefits are several-fold. Firstly, because implants are permanent fixtures, people who have them no longer have to deal with the hassle of cleaning removable dentures, or the embarrassment of someone seeing them in a glass by the bed for the first time (such a romance killer!). Health-wise, in Basingstoke, dental implants can make a big difference. The way the titanium screw stimulates bone growth means the patient will retain a strong jaw with dense bone tissue, which is more likely to retain other natural teeth. From the outside, a strong jaw looks younger, as it fills out the face around the mouth, and prevents that sunken, aged, look that comes as the jaw decreases in thickness after tooth loss.
