Why consider Dental Implants?

Dental Implant AnatomyDo you have missing teeth? If you do then dental implants could be an alternative for you. If you don’t replace missing teeth then over a period of time your gums and bone can resorb where the tooth is missing, this means that in the future if you decided you wanted to have an implant it may either be very difficult or you may need some form of bone grafting in order to rebuild the bone.

Your teeth are also in perfect harmony with one another, so if a tooth is removed then the tendency is for the adjacent teeth, and the opposing teeth to fall into the space where the old tooth was. Over time this can begin to affect your ability to chew and may also affect your bite. Bite problems can lead to difficulties eating and may also lead to headaches and other problems around the jaw.

This means that if you have teeth missing there is a biological and health reason to do everything you can to replace them, not to mention aesthetic reason.

What are Dental implants?

In basic terms dental implants are a man made and manufactured alternative to the natural root of your tooth. Generally speaking implants are made from high specification dental and medical grade titanium. The amazing thing is that the human body does not recognise titanium as a foreign object, this means the dental implant will totally integrate with the natural surroundings of your jaw.

The dental implant is placed into the jaw where your natural root used to be, on top of this we create a natural looking replacement for the tooth.

The overall result is that no one would know you have ever had a tooth missing.

How are implants used, what is the procedure?

The procedure for placing the dental implant is a minor surgical one which most patients have under a local anaesthetic. However if you are especially nervous of the dentist then we can provide oral sedation to help you relax during the entire procedure.

If you have a single tooth missing then we will only use a single dental implant. If you have two teeth missing then two dental implants will probably be used. However, if you have three, four or even five teeth missing then the chances are we will still only use two dental implants, and suspend the remaining teeth between these dental implants.

This keeps the cost of dental implants lower and means the whole process is slightly simpler.

Implants are an ideal solution for replacing Missing Teeth, Bridges or Dentures and are the next best thing to natural teeth. The tooth would be fixed to your jawbone allowing us to build a permanently secure and natural looking tooth.

Cost of dental implants

As with many things in dentistry to give an exact cost of dental implants is particularly difficult. There are so many variables such as bone grafting, sedation, number of teeth missing and the location of teeth missing which will affect the overall price and cost of dental implants. To make the whole process simpler we have added a voucher to the right hand side of his website which entitles you to a massive 60% saving on our initial assessment consultation. This is an ideal opportunity to discuss implants with us further.

Dental Implant Problems

Dental implants have a very high success rate and typically last many years. One of the problems with replacing teeth with a dental bridge, for example, is that the natural teeth underneath the bridge could possibly require further treatment at a later stage. With dental implants, because we don’t have to involve the adjacent teeth, this keeps them healthy and so the dental implant stands a higher chance of surviving for longer period of time.

Overall this means that the problems with dental implants are very few and far between.

One of the biggest causes of problems with dental implants is if the patient smokes, this is a particular contraindication to having implants as it impedes the ability for your gum to heal in the event of any problem.

Been to my second appointment at dental smiles had my impressions done it was a breeze, I have a diabolical gagging reflex so I did what Dr Patel asked me to do and I went through it without any gagging whatsoever, in past times at other dentists it was always a rush to get you in and out with no consideration for the patients but at dental smiles what they have to do you comes second the nerves disappear after a reassuring chat and gentle approach they go through everything without any problems, which is why this is the dental practice to head for when you have any problems what so ever, don't be afraid of this practice, they are out of this world, ggggreat workread more

Told I needed a crown for a simple filling which fell out. Decided to trust her word and get it done. When the temporary filling fell out, she was unavailable for a week, while I called every day, walking around with a hole in my mouth. Turns out she actually was in the practice, but was too keen to leave every day at 5pm to provide basic care to her customers. Also told I needed a filling on another tooth for a superficial spot of decay. Saw another dentist about this who advised this is an out of date practice - superficial decay can recover and is best left to heal until it becomes a problem. Now I suspect the crown was also overkill to hand out a larger bill. I was also advised to get a splint, which would cost £900 - the "Rolls Royce" of splints (how very professional...). Another dentist advised that this can be done for £450. Not the same "Rolls Royce" - but they at least provide a more affordable option. Takes ages to get appointments - don't expect anything for 2 weeks. Receptionist seems to think she runs the practice. Bottom line is this place is run as a business, not a health care facility. Private patients are subsidising care for students, but don't expect any better service for your hard earned money - you're just a number in their books, and they're going to try making that number as large as possible.read more

I had a really great experience here, as a student. Friendly, quick and easy to book appointments. An appointment of mine had to be rescheduled and the process was very straightforward and with no inconvenience, so am grateful to them for that. I would recommend to any London based students!read more

I have been a patient for over three years now. Everyone at the centre is great. Dr Au is extremely competent and always willing to explain the situation clearly so that the patients can make the best choice. The hygienists are very professional. The nurses are always nice and reassuring and the reception staff is lovely and super efficient.read more

Good price and friendly, but I was told I need a filling however another dentist (who family members have used and trusted for years) assured me that I don’t. I got the impression that they were more interested in me spending money than the health of my teeth. The dentist also recommended I pay something like £50 to attend a session on brushing. Overall not great.read more

Carla and her team have looked after my teeth for 5 years now and I have always received excellent service even though I can be an awkward patient particularly with taking impressions. Under her care I have become a less nervous dental patient. Gemma the hygienist also performs wonders to my teeth and in a very professional manner. The surgery has ultra modern equipment, with excellent reception staff who are always helpful. I highly recommend the practice.read more

These guys are on point!! A really client centred service the moment you walk through the door. I had a hygiene not too many weeks ago with Emma which was the best I've ever had. Also what i really like is the that elite professionalism of Dr Jones is reflected in her front of house staff too, Jeeva always does an excellent job at making me feel welcome and valued, I'm really glad i found this place.read more
