Dental Implant Experts

Maintaining daily dental hygiene can help avert tooth loss, though it could still occur due to oral disease or trauma. The silver lining is that contemporary dental practices offer remarkable tooth repair procedures that can restore your smile if you unfortunately lose a tooth.

While dentures are indeed a superb choice, and crowns and bridges can effectively fill in for lost teeth, dental implants have quickly become a patient’s first choice.

Dental implants are modern dentistry’s most inventive solution for filling gaps from lost teeth. A dental implant has the capability to serve as a complete substitute for the tooth root. It offers a solid base for individual implant crowns, and dentures or bridges kept in place.

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant serves as a substitute for the root of a tooth, the section that resides below the gum surface. This implant is positioned into the jawbone and lays the groundwork for the tooth replacement above the gum line. ‘Dental implant’ refers to the component beneath the gum line, however, the complete replacement comprises the implant, an abutment – a piece that links the implant to the replacement tooth, and another part that connects to the abutment, which could be a bridge, crown, or dentures.

The primary function of a dental implant is to effectively replicate the role of your natural tooth root. It prevents the deterioration of the jawbone and ensures a robust foundation for your teeth, offering them the same level of stability as they would have had if they were natural.

How to look after the Implant

Similar to your real teeth, maintaining proper oral cleanliness is crucial to ward off gum infections and extend the lifespan of your implants. There’s no need to detach the teeth attached to your implants, just clean them as you would your genuine teeth. Upholding excellent daily hygiene, coupled with frequent visits to your nearby Dental Care Centre dentist and dental hygienist, will aid in keeping your mouth in optimal health and your implants durable for the longest possible time.

Prior to formulating a treatment plan for implants, we provide a comprehensive evaluation to confirm your eligibility. Given the expenses and the recovery phase associated with it, dental implants are only suggested to those patients who have a significant probability of a successful procedure. Luckily, these days, implants have a high success rate for most individuals keen on receiving the treatment.

Procedures for implants are performed using local anaesthesia, similar to the process of extraction.

With the right care, these implants are expected to last for the entire duration of a person’s life. It’s crucial to take care of them just like your natural teeth, and your dentist will provide guidance on any particular needs.

Dental Implant Treatment

Every procedure starts with an evaluation by your dentist here at Dental Care Centre, who will be completing your implant procedure. They will explore all alternative options with you, determine the most optimal solution for your needs, and make sure you have a comprehensive understanding of each phase of your treatment. An x-ray will be conducted, and in certain instances, a CT scan may be needed to get a better picture of your jaw, confirm the health of your gums, and ensure there’s adequate jawbone for the implant placement.

The procedure involves inserting the implant into your jawbone. This simple process can be done under local anaesthesia. If you’re overly anxious or suffer from dental fear, your dentist will ensure that you are totally at ease during the procedure and will offer sedation if necessary.

The healing and merging of the implants with your jaw bone to establish a strong foundation for the crown or bridge will require a period of three to six months.

Affordable Dental Implants

The cost associated with dental implants is determined by the number of teeth and implants needed. A strong jawbone requires fewer implants to ensure adequate stability, which in turn reduces the overall cost.

On your first appointment at our medical centre near Eltham, we will attentively hear out your worries and provide comprehensive data about implants. Our specialists will carry out an in-depth assessment of your teeth, gums, and general oral well-being, possibly including X-rays and scans of the impacted area. Following these results, we will develop a personalised treatment strategy designed specifically for you. Furthermore, we will provide you with a precise cost of the procedure.

I have excellent experience at this dental care centre. I have been attending since I came to live in London since 2009. Currently I'm going through a teeth straightening process which I'm so relieved is going well and I very appreciate all the support and transparency re costs that I'm receiving. I especially appreciate that this is an NHS dental practice.

My visit to the Dental Care Centre on Friday was a very happy experience, the surgery was very clean, receptionists very friendly and my dentist was very attentive.. I only had a check up, with work suggested for my follow up appointment, but I felt I was in good hands and i am someone who has an inbuilt fear of dentists.. recommended

I have been using this dental care centre since 2018 during my pregnancy and until now. I have always been looked after by front desk staff and dentist themselves. They have an excellent service.Now my son has had his 3rd appointment for dental check and being 3.5yrs old he's always been comfortable attending this clinic.Sad to see our dentist leave Dr Kumar, he's an excellent dentist towards our care. Hope he'll enjoy more of his family time.Met our new dentist last week and my son already created a bond with her.Thank you staff for your continuous service. I'm just lucky to have a good rapport with you all. 😀
