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.
The process of implant starting from tooth implantation to final restoration will not be the same for each case
At the initial consultation, your dentist will assess the X-ray discuss your options. If the patient has good dental health, the dentist will perform the implant treatment by preparing a customised treatment plan. The dentist may even ask to perform other tests or request for a CT scan, to check bone mass.
The implant is placed into the jaw bone at the time of treatment. The patient is given some advice and necessary instructions after the surgery for bone recovery. If there isn't any bone tissue, a surgical procedure known as bone grafting is provided to replace bone tissue.
The implant incorporates into the jawbone and heals under the gum within 3 to 6 months after the procedure. The patient should have good oral health and take proper medications during this period.
The restoration is done on dental implant or implants after the healing period is over. You will find different types of tooth implants restoration, starting from the single crown on one tooth implant or bridge on two implants to full restorations, All-on-4 fixed dentures or full bridge on 6-8 dental implants.
In case you do not have any teeth in the lower jaw and aren't ready for implant placements, a conventional lower denture can be used instead of removable overdenture.
You cannot perform implant surgery successfully without having improved dental health and hygiene. It is essential that the patient improves their way of life to perform the treatment easily. After the prosthetic procedure, the patients should go for regular check-ups at least once in a year. This will enable them to know about their dental health and stability of the implant.
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.
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.
The cost for tooth implantation depends on the materials being used, and prosthetic works suggested and severity of the surgery. However, there might be bone grafting or sinus lifting that can impact the price of the implant. Thus, the cost associated with this surgery will differ from one person to the other, according to their oral health condition. It will be near about £1995 and you can get this treatment with an easy monthly payment plan by paying £49 PM only.
See the cost examples for porcelain crown(s) on dental implants (3 unit porcelain bridge on two dental implants and full porcelain bridge on six dental implants) prepared for you to provide an estimated cost and necessary treatments to be done. However, bone graft and sinus lift are not there in this calculation.

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 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.
The entire process of getting dental implants may take somewhere from 6 to 8 or 9 months with two surgeries being done. During the first surgical appointment, the titanium ‘tooth root’ will be placed gently into the socket at the jawbone for your natural tooth. In the second surgery, the new dental crown will be fixed properly to artificial root of the tooth.
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.
When undergoing dental implants, you will have minimal pain. Mostly, patients can get back to their routine work on the same day due to the ease of the procedure. However, if you have sinus elevation surgery and bone grafting while preparing for dental implants, your dental surgeon may use an office anesthesiogist for IV sedation. In this situation you will not be allowed to drive for 24 hours and may require a mild pain medication for the 24 hours. Each individual will have different reaction but most patients will have little to no discomfort from their personal experience.
Once you perform implant surgery, there can be symptoms of swellings either in the mouth or on the face that can lead to pain and discomfort. This is common after getting. If you are having severe pain, it is advised to take pa in-killers as suggested by the dentist. It is also advised to use ice on the affected area to ensure that the swelling subsides.
The stitches will have to be removed within 7-10 days after the surgery; however, you may talk to the dental surgeons at Wimpole Dental Office regarding dissolvable stitches that may not need this follow up an appointment.
It is essential to go for regular check-up after implant surgery than other forms of dental treatments as it is a severe intervention within your body.
