Life with missing teeth can be challenging – not only does it affect your smile, it can also cause health issues. When it comes to tooth replacement, dental implants offer an effective and long-lasting alternative to dentures and bridges that can address the issues of missing teeth.
At Expert Implants, we provide innovative implant solutions. No matter how many teeth you are missing, or even if you have been previously told you aren't a candidate for implants, talk to our experienced dental team about how we can replace gaps in your smile with dental implants in Southampton.
- Implants are made from titanium, an incredibly hard-wearing metal that also has the ability to fuse with bone tissue. Because the implants integrate with the jawbone, they provide a strong and stable chewing foundation. Because dental implants provide as much chewing power as natural teeth, you don't need to cut out crunchy and chewy food;
- Dental implants are fixed in place in your jawbone; they aren't going to slide around in your mouth and fall out and embarrass you;
- Once a tooth is gone, the jawbone can lose 25% of its density in that area in the first year alone. Having dental implants in the jawbone stops this process of resorption, and encourages new growth to help maintain strength and density of the jawbone;
- Having a good jawbone holds the structure of the face in place, preventing the sagging that can occur with wearing dentures;
- Cleaning dental implants is the same as cleaning your natural teeth. You maintain them with a regular oral healthcare routine of twice-daily brushing and flossing;
- They last a long time – at least 15 years and sometimes for decades.
Because one implant can support up to three teeth, dental implants in Southampton can be a foundation for single crowns, bridges or dentures. Single implants are ideal for one missing tooth or a few missing teeth on a bridge, and implant-supported dentures can support a whole arch or full set of replacement teeth.

The successful businessman in this case had persevered with a partial denture since losing his front teeth in an unfortunate accident. Understandably he wanted a long-term solution that gave him the confidence to speak and eat in public. Following some teeth whitening, two dental implants were placed, giving a life-changing aesthetic and functional result.
