Implants are like artificial roots of teeth which are placed into the jaw. By placing an implant into the bone, to replace a missing tooth, you can avoid any facial changes, protect the bone and maintain tooth alignment. Once the implant screw is placed in the bone, the dentist will place an implant crown on top of the implant screw. This implant crown is crafted by very experienced laboratory technicians to ensure it feels and looks as natural, as the rest of your teeth.
If you are suitable for dental implants, our dentists will carry out a full detailed examination and may need to take a 3D CT scan to accurately assess if implants are the best option for you.
I saw Dr Meriam Khawam for replacement of missing filling of one of my molars. Her administration of the local anaesthetic and the rest of the work was outstanding. She did not forget to examine and give me advice on my gum health which so many dentists overlook. Overall my experience was very positive.
I visited Dr Ankit Patel for ongoing issues with my sensitive teeth. I was extremely nervous and worried as I don’t visit the dentist often, but Dr Patel ensured I was comfortable throughout and explained the treatment in detail which put me at ease. Overall great service and really friendly staff.
First consultation went beyond all my expectations. Dr Meriam was not only pleasant but extremely professional and had answers and advice for all my points of discussion. No treatment done on this date but an overall assessment and I left the practice feeling I was in good hands.
No. As long as there is enough bone to place the dental implant, you will be eligible for this treatment. If there is not enough bone, extra bone can often be grafted. Generally, the dentist will need to take a CT Scan to assess the amount and thickness of bone currently present.
No, we will ensure you have a temporary crown or some sort of replacement tooth to fill any missing spaces while the dental implant integrates with the bone. In all cases you will be explained exactly how the implant will be placed, temporised and then finally restored, ensuring no surprises or embarrassing days with missing teeth.
We will take every measure to ensure you are comfortable and pain free during the dental implant procedure. All treatments are carried out under local anaesthetic and after the implants are placed we supply painkillers to ensure that our patients remain comfortable. We also offer sedation, for those patients who are really nervous and would rather be in a state of complete relaxation.
Yes. As part of our consultation we will screen your gums and bone for any infections. Prior to implant placement your remaining teeth and gums need to be healthy. We will offer any additional treatment to ensure that your mouth is healthy prior having implants.
