Dental Implant Experts in Greenwich

When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants are a highly effective option that can provide the same benefits as natural teeth. With their ability to improve your appearance as well, dental implants are a popular choice for many individuals.

With good daily oral care, tooth loss can be prevented, but sometimes it occurs due to dental issues or physical trauma. Nevertheless, modern dentistry offers effective tooth replacement procedures to help regain a healthy and complete smile in case of tooth loss.

While dentures remain a great choice and crowns and bridges can effectively replace lost teeth, they no longer hold the top position as the ultimate solution for restoring teeth. It is important to consider other options for tooth restoration.

Dental implants are considered the most advanced solution for replacing missing teeth in contemporary dentistry. They are commonly the preferred option for patients, as dental implants can replace the entire tooth root, creating a strong base for single implant crowns, implant retained dentures, or bridges.

Dental Care Centre near to Greenwich is delighted to provide an exceptional dental restoration therapy that provides patients with the most natural looking and feeling replacement for their actual smile currently accessible.

Professional Dental Implant Treatments

The main purpose of a dental implant is to provide support to the replacement tooth that is placed above it. However, in some cases, it is possible to use a single implant to support multiple teeth, depending on the location and position of the implant. This option of supporting multiple teeth with a single implant can be cost-effective while still delivering an impressive outcome.

If there are multiple adjacent teeth that require replacement, our suggestion would be to opt for an implant bridge. This procedure involves the placement of two implants, one at each end of the gap, with a bridge attached to them in the middle. The bridge is a fixed and long-lasting solution. Unlike conventional bridges, where the neighbouring teeth need to be prepped for crowns to provide support, in implant bridges, the support is provided by the dental implants themselves.

Dentures that are conventionally used are located near the gum area, fitting firmly to create suction in conjunction with adhesive for added support. These dentures are available in partial and full options and require frequent replacements as teeth and jawbone shift and alter over time. The precision of the fit is never as good as it is with implant-supported dentures, which utilise implants to firmly secure the dentures in place. Unlike permanent bridges, dentures are detachable and can be separated from the implants for maintenance purposes.

How does Dental Implant Treatment work?

A tiny device composed of titanium metal, known as an implant, functions as a substitute for a tooth root. Following the attachment of the implant to the jawbone, the implant will integrate with the bone while it continues to heal. Once the implant area has healed, and the dentist is happy with the stability, your replacement implant is attached.

Once the implant is in place, it forms a durable foundation for the replacement tooth. This new tooth is designed to match the shape and shade of your natural teeth, and it will be installed once the implant has been firmly secured.

Like extractions, implants are carried out using local anaesthesia. It is expected that they will remain functional for life if taken care of properly. It is crucial to maintain them just like your natural teeth, and your dentist will provide guidance on any necessary precautions.

How long does Dental Implant Treatment take?

After the procedure, you may experience some soreness in your mouth and gums which can be alleviated with paracetamol. Over a period of 2 to 6 months, your jawbone will fuse completely with your implants during the recovery process. During this time, your specialist will collaborate with you to design the necessary bridges or crowns.

Once your recovery period is over, we will invite you to visit Dental Care Centre to fit your uniquely tailored teeth. This marks the culminating phase of your implant process, and you will leave the surgery with a dazzling smile!

When you get dental implants, it is important to maintain their durability and longevity by practicing proper oral hygiene. Your dentist will provide you with guidelines and address any inquiries you may have during your treatment.

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. 😀
