A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed into your jaw for holding a replacement tooth or bridge. The metal frames are made of titanium, a biocompatible material that is positioned surgically into the jawbone and below the gums. Once the titanium implant is adequately affixed the dental surgeon can place the crown.
Dental implants are fused to the jawbone and act as a replacement for natural teeth, causing no obstruction or impediments to eating or speech.

Do you feel uncomfortable smiling in public because of your missing or lost teeth? Dental implants are the best alternative and most permanent solution teeth, compared to removable dentures.
Missing teeth have a variety of adverse health factors and if left untreated for too long can cause the following:
The surrounding teeth may drift into the gap left by the missing tooth over time, creating gaps in your teeth that can affect your bite and chewing abilities.
If left for too long, the jawbone loses bone mass. Bone resorption can alter your appearance, giving you the distinctive jaw placement of someone with missing teeth.
Food particles stuck in between the teeth can have a negative impact on adjacent teeth.

The patient had never used dentures or other removable solutions to missing teeth and instead would hide her smile. The patient had good oral health and didn't require any bone grafting or other prerequisite treatments for the dental implant. The left lateral incisor was replaced with a dental implant successfully, and the patient is now confident to smile and draw attention to her mouth.
This patient had a small gap where her lateral incisor should be. The reduced ridge width required orthodontic treatment to create space for the implant. The patient was happy to undergo bone grafting and soft tissue manipulation for better aesthetic results. The patient has now regained a natural smile after a short orthodontic treatment to make way for the dental implant for a natural finish.
Yes, there are two kinds of implants:
These implants are placed into the jawbone to give you a natural look and feel with artificial teeth. After the adjacent tissue gets healed, there is a second surgery that connects the post to implant. The artificial tooth is then fixed to the position and this is either done individually or grouped on a bridge or denture. These are the commonly used implant that possesses the shape of cylinders, plates or small screws.
They consist of a metal frame placed beneath the gums but on or above the jawbone. As the gums start healing, the structure is fixed to the jawbone and attached to the frame and then protruded through the gums. This type of implant is used for patients who have shallow jawbone and t they cannot or do not want to rebuild it.
You are more than likely a good candidate for dental implants and in most cases work can be done to build up to the procedure. However, tooth implants in London might not be a suitable option for:
People who are suffering from diabetes and heart disease
Heavy smokers, as smoking can get in the way of the healing process
High dose radiation therapy around the jaw, neck and head
Individuals who are facing teeth clenching, grinding or bruxism that may cause pressure on the implant
You might not know whether you have enough jaw bone for the implant procedure.
An X-ray and CT scan is performed to detect bone density, volume and detailed information on anatomical structures like the nerves. The dental practitioner will assess if the bone requires further support to anchor tooth implants tightly. Taking rest and staying healthy both before and after the surgery ensures it is done in an effective and a safe way.
Like other forms of dental treatments in London, tooth implants too should be taken proper care to ensure that they last for a long time. For this, it is essential to brush and floss daily and go for dental check-ups at least twice a year.
Keeping healthy and clean mouth is essential to ensure the longevity of the implant. However, dental implants placed at the back of the mouth usually have more strain from chewing that may be the reason for failure than implants near the front of your mouth.

Several factors have an important role in the success of implant dentistry in London. Some common things that your dentist will consider are:
As implants fuse together with the jawbone for anchoring tooth, adequate bone support is one of the essential factors for implant success. In this regard, bone implants are usually considered for the patients who do not have enough bone.
A dental implant is a surgical procedure that requires you to maintain good dental health. If you have the habit of smoking, drinking alcohol or have diabetes, there are fewer chances of performing the surgery successfully. This is because all these conditions can damage your oral health that, in turn, affects the healing process.
Healthy gums support the new implant that fuses with the jawbone. Patients who suffer from the periodontal disease often experience implant surgery failure.
Tooth implant requires good dental health and hygiene. For this, it is necessary to brush and floss daily with regular visits to your dentist. Good oral habits are essential for maintaining the strength and health of natural teeth.
If you are suffering from teeth clenching or bruxism, it is advised to see your dentist soon. This has shown to lessen the rate of success of implant dentistry.
Your dental practitioner in London will consider the above criterion and the location of missing tooth to determine if an implant is a perfect solution for your attractive smile.
