Dental Implants

What are they?

Missing teeth can be a cause of many dental problems. Chewing may become difficult if gaps exist at
the back of the mouth, whilst patients with missing front teeth often feel self-conscious about
speaking and smiling.

Adjacent and opposing healthy teeth can also drift into the gaps, causing misalignment of the teeth.
This can give rise to many oral and health related problems including jaw and neck pain, headaches
and frequent discomfort when eating.

Dental implants are a fantastic solution to missing teeth. A dental Implant is an artificial tooth root
made of titanium alloy, that is fixed into the gum and bone. This implant can then be utilised to
support a dental crown, denture or a bridge. Your new dental implant will now be able to help you
chew, function and smile with confidence and ease.

Hampshire Terrace Dental Care Implants are carried out by trained surgeons, who have extensive
experience in oral surgery. We pride ourselves on using the very best materials and equipment and
are proud providers of the world renowned Straumann implant system.

How long do they last?

Scientific evidence demonstrates that dental implants have a survival rate of about 95%. However,
with proper care and maintenance they can last a lifetime. Speak to one of our in-house HYGIENISTS
who can help clean and maintain the gum, as well as giving helpful advice on how to care for your
dental implants.

Are implants painful?

Using advanced equipment and the latest technology, having a dental implant placed shouldn’t be
painful at all. In fact, dental implants are carried out under local anaesthetic and many of our
patients report very little discomfort post treatment.
If you have missing teeth and would like to consider dental implants, contact us at Hampshire
