COST-EFFECTIVE DENTAL IMPLANTS IN LONDON

At Fitzroy Dental Practice, we offer dental implants in London for replacing the missing teeth. Unlike all other conventional solutions for missing teeth, implants look, feel and function like natural teeth. A single tooth or multiple teeth can be replaced with dental implants. This revolutionary dental technology not only gives people with missing teeth the confidence to smile openly but also restores the full-range functionality of their teeth as well as improving the quality of life.

Dental Implants Treatment

An implant has two main parts:

  • An artificial root which is formed of a metal or ceramic screw (usually biocompatible titanium or zirconia ) is precisely placed into the jawbone.
  • A false or prosthetic tooth placed on top of the artificial root (dental implant).

The screw performs the role of the root in the missing tooth. The false or prosthetic tooth looks and feels like natural ones. Both the components are accepted by your body into your mouth in a short time to make your eating and chewing completely natural. Dental implants also help retaining your facial structure preventing it from changing.

DR ASIF HAMID is our resident prosthodontist who will determine your oral condition and then suggest if you are the right candidate for the procedure.

Dental implants procedure at our practice

Dental implants treatment in our London clinic starts with assessing both the quality and quantity of your jawbone. You should have sufficient jawbone mass to hold the metal screw in place. Our expert prosthodontist relies on CT scans and x-rays to make the correct assessment. If you are found to be a suitable candidate for dental implant treatment, we will take impressions of your teeth to create the prosthetic tooth or teeth in correct size and shape. The treatment procedure is broken down in three steps as following:

Step 1: Thorough planning

With thorough assessment and proper planning, you can determine the positioning of the anatomy and evaluate the levels, shape and density.

The implant are normally placed under local anaesthetic and if the treatment involves placing multiple implants, then IV Sedation is a good option to consider as it is a lengthy process. Sedation means you will be relaxed, conscious and may not have any recollection of the entire process.

Step 2: The surgery

During the surgery, a small flap of gum is raised to prepare the bone, after bone preparation, then the titanium implant is screwed into the socket which will be followed by gum stitched over the implant. These screws can be found in different sizes and shapes, and our surgeon will select the right size for replacing your missing teeth. If there are inadequate levels of bone, then a bone grafting may be needed before placing the implant.

Step 3: The Restoration Stage

It may take nearly 3 to 6 months for the screw to become fully fixed into the jaw, so you will be fitted with a temporary false tooth while you heal. Once this has happened, we will attach your permanent replacement tooth.

Aftercare of tooth implant

You have to take care of the implants in the same way as you would for natural teeth. Make sure you follow good oral health and hygiene other than brushing twice a day and flossing daily for a clean and healthy mouth. You need to visit your dentist for routine check-ups so that the implants remain in good condition.

Some FAQs on dental implants

Am I the right candidate for implant procedure?

Yes, even if your jawbone is in poor health, then our surgical team at Fitzroy Dental Practice will ensure you are in optimal health before implant placement. Our dental implant specialist treats patients who have been refused treatment at other dental practices and we offer zygomatic implants when the jaw bone has severely damaged.

Why will I need an implant?

  • If you are missing a front tooth/teeth and do not want to wear a denture, then bridging the teeth is not the right option to improve your appearance.
  • If you have lost teeth at the back and cannot chew properly, then implants can help to restore your function.
  • If you are already having a denture and do not want to wear it, then you may have implant-retained crowns, implant retained denture or implant retained bridges.

How painful is the procedure?

Our team of dentists at the implant clinic place implants under local anaesthetic, ensuring that there is no pain involved other than the local aneasthetic. You may feel some discomfort and pain after the surgery and some tenderness for the next few days. However, most patients cannot believe how easy and pain-free the entire procedure is.

How soon after losing a tooth should I get an implant?

Dental implants treatment easily takes several weeks or months together to get completed. We recommend starting the implant procedure as soon as you lose your natural tooth or teeth. This is because to prevent bone from collapsing. If your condition demands extraction of a natural tooth to make way for an implant, we include that into your customized treatment plan as well.

How can I look after my implants?

You need to take care of your implants like you would do for the natural teeth. Make sure you brush twice, floss daily and see a dentist for mouth cleanings and routine checkups. This can help to maintain good oral health and hygiene for a long time.

What is the success rate for implants procedure?

Our surgical team of dentists enjoys a superior track record in placing the implants. We are extremely confident in helping you to accomplish the results successfully. We charge affordable tooth implant cost in London from our patients.

Are there any dietary restrictions after the treatment?

You recommend eating soft foods at the time of recovery to provide a suitable chance for the implants to heal completely. After the implants are bedded and the titanium gets accepted successfully into the jawbone, there aren’t dietary restrictions anymore.

How long will an implant last?

Dental implantology has been used successfully for the past 30 years and they often depend on their hosts (your body) for longevity. ie if you looked after them, they will stay with you.
