Dental Implants in Southampton

24th May 2017

Do you have a missing tooth or teeth? If you answered yes, then dental implants could be the solution for you.

Rather than dentures, which can slip, feel uncomfortable and have to be removed to be cleaned, dental implants are much more like natural teeth. They allow you to both smile freely and with confidence and to eat various foods with confidence once more.

Dental implants are a long-established and safe dental treatment. As they act like natural teeth, they will last for as long as you care for them.

What is a dental implant?

Basically speaking, the dental implant acts as the structure of the natural tooth. Strong screws made from titanium are fixed into the jawbone, acting as the tooth root, and this holds the crown in place. Implants are a clever solution, as they can be used to replace just one tooth or a whole mouth of teeth. Over time the titanium screw fuses together with your natural bone, which helps it be held in place very securely. This means the patient gets a comfortable, strong and securely fitted crown, bridge or denture, which can be relied on.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

• They don’t move around so feel secure
• They can be placed next to existing healthy teeth without causing any side effects
• They stop food and bacteria from getting trapped in the gaps that were previously there, which reduces decay, gum disease and bad breath
• They can improve your speech
• They can stop your face appearing saggy, particularly if there are several missing teeth
• They are well-established, safe and effective
• They can significantly improve your confidence, particularly when replacing a very visible missing tooth
• They can stop the teeth adjacent to any gaps from moving or rotating as there is no-where for the teeth to move to

Are dental implants suitable for me?

We would look at every patient as a unique case, however on the whole dental implants are suitable for the majority of patients, providing you are in good health generally. If you have diabetes or are a heavy smoker, an alternative treatment may be suggested.
