Implants are like artificial roots of teeth which are placed into the jaw. By placing an implant into the bone, to replace a missing tooth, you can avoid any facial changes, protect the bone and maintain tooth alignment. Once the implant screw is placed in the bone, the dentist will place an implant crown on top of the implant screw. This implant crown is crafted by very experienced laboratory technicians to ensure it feels and looks as natural, as the rest of your teeth.
If you are suitable for dental implants, our dentists will carry out a full detailed examination and may need to take a 3D CT scan to accurately assess if implants are the best option for you.
Friendliest hygienist I've come across! Both Alicja and Clair were professional and friendly. I was given good advise on how to look after my teeth and shown exactly how to brush behind teeth to get to my problem areas. Would definitely recommend.
The team here were wonderful. From the swiftness of the appointment to the professional and caring dentists it is a 5 star practice. I am a relatively nervous patient but they put me at ease straight away.
Everyone at this practice is fantastic. Have been several times over the past few months for a range of treatments with Dr Patel from a filling to hygienist cleaning with Alicija, whitening, and composite bonding. They are so professional, informative, and all truly excellent at what they do. Better than any dental practice I have been to in London, hands down. I've never had such perfect looking teeth!
No. As long as there is enough bone to place the dental implant, you will be eligible for this treatment. If there is not enough bone, extra bone can often be grafted. Generally, the dentist will need to take a CT Scan to assess the amount and thickness of bone currently present.
No, we will ensure you have a temporary crown or some sort of replacement tooth to fill any missing spaces while the dental implant integrates with the bone. In all cases you will be explained exactly how the implant will be placed, temporised and then finally restored, ensuring no surprises or embarrassing days with missing teeth.
We will take every measure to ensure you are comfortable and pain free during the dental implant procedure. All treatments are carried out under local anaesthetic and after the implants are placed we supply painkillers to ensure that our patients remain comfortable. We also offer sedation, for those patients who are really nervous and would rather be in a state of complete relaxation.
Yes. As part of our consultation we will screen your gums and bone for any infections. Prior to implant placement your remaining teeth and gums need to be healthy. We will offer any additional treatment to ensure that your mouth is healthy prior having implants.
