Why might you need dental implant treatment?

If you’ve lost a tooth due to disease or injury, you may run into issues such as speech problems, quick bone loss, or discomfort when eating your favourite foods. A dental implant can replace the lost tooth and restore your ability to speak, chew, and feel better about your smile. Also, if your teeth or gums can’t support dentures or bridges, dental implants are a great choice.

What is the dental implant process?

The dental implant process involves a few key steps. First, the dentist assesses your overall oral health and may take X-rays to plan the procedure. Next, the damaged or missing tooth is removed, and if needed, the jawbone is prepared for the implant. A bone graft may also be necessary for some patients due to loss of natural bone.

During the main procedure, a small titanium post is placed into the jawbone, acting as a replacement for the tooth root. Over a few months, the jawbone bonds with the implant, creating a sturdy foundation. Once the implant is secure, an abutment is attached to it, and a custom-made artificial tooth (crown) is placed on top.

The result is a natural-looking and functional tooth that blends seamlessly with your smile. Throughout the process, your dentist will guide you and ensure proper healing and care for the new implant.

Teeth in a Day

Traditionally, dental implants must bond with your jawbone before we can place your new tooth or teeth on it, a process which usually takes several months. However, thanks to the latest CBCT scans and the extensive research in the field of dental implants, new fixed teeth in just one day is a valid treatment option.

Introducing All-on-4 implants – a ground-breaking procedure that allows you to enjoy fixed teeth in just one day! This uses just four implants to support an upper or lower denture, and you can leave our practice the same day with fixed, non-removable teeth! This compares to more traditional procedures which can require six or more implants and several months of treatment.

The Procedure

You will usually need to visit the clinic once or twice before the day of treatment, so we can talk to you about the treatment and your expectations, and carry out all necessary preparation, including X-rays, impressions (moulds) of the area to be treated, and photos. We will put together a written treatment plan, so you know exactly what to expect.

On the day of treatment, we will place all your implants, numbing your mouth completely so you will not feel any pain. Once the implants are fitted, we will check them, fit your replacement teeth, and make any necessary adjustments. When you leave, you will have new teeth that will look and feel very realistic and will be completely functional.

You will need to see us regularly for reviews over the next six months. When your gums have completely healed and your implants have bonded with the bone, we will take new impressions of your mouth and create a final, stronger, permanent set of teeth.

Single tooth gap

  • Tooth extracted due to trauma, infection, failed root filling, and/or root fracture
  • Crown keeps falling out and/or not enough tooth left to attach the crown
  • Repeated infections
  • Permanent tooth missing from birth

Solution: Single Dental Implant with a supported single crown

  • The dental implant looks and functions just like a natural tooth
  • No need to damage adjacent healthy teeth
  • Continued use (loading) prevent resorption shrinkage of the underlying jawbone
  • Dental Implant-supported tooth prevents lateral movement (drifting) of adjacent teeth and over-eruption of the opposite tooth
  • Very high and predictable long-term success after surgery (98 percent) with conventional oral hygiene dental care

Alternatives to Dental Implants in Harley District

Leave a gap

  • Unsightly
  • May impair eating, smile, speech, confidence
  • Bone and gum in the gap will shrink
  • Positions of adjacent opposing teeth will be distorted over time

Conventional bridge

  • Healthy adjacent teeth need to be damaged to attach/support the bridge, thus compromising their long term health
  • Jawbone supporting the gum beneath will shrink due to lack of use
  • Extra stress on supporting teeth during chewing

Multiple Tooth Dental Implants in Harley District

Multiple tooth dental implants are more complicated, but E11even Dental clinic is more than up to the challenge of this treatment! Usually, the fitting of multiple implants will be a two-stage process – initially, the dental implant is installed by the dentist and covered by gum, and then an abutment is attached by the dentist at a later date.

Usually, a temporary tooth replacement is put in place, followed by a 3-6 month healing period, before the final abutment installation. However, the procedure rarely causes patients discomfort.

Dental implants are the best treatment for those patients with multiple missing teeth, particularly in the back of the mouth, where a dental implant will provide stability and the ability to eat whatever you want.

Problem: Multiple missing teeth

  • Poorly fitting partial dentures or a failing tooth-supported bridge
  • Patient unable to chew properly and eat what they want
  • Food gets stuck under your dentures leading to embarrassment or discomfort whilst eating
  • Loose teeth or not enough of them to support bridges

Solution: Permanently fixed bridge supported by dental implants

  • Eat anything you choose
  • Dental implant looks and works just like natural teeth
  • Fixed in place, no need to remove it to clean
  • No need to damage adjacent healthy teeth with this procedure
  • Should last a lifetime with good oral hygiene and professional maintenance
  • Prevent shrinkage of underlying bone

Alternatives to Dental Implants

Alternatives to dental implants in Harley District

Replacement tooth-supported bridge

  • This dental procedure is only possible if supporting teeth on either side can still be used
  • Maintains chewing stress on the supporting teeth reducing their useful life
  • Should be viewed as a temporary treatment, if supporting teeth are failing

Larger tooth-supported bridge

  • Larger bridges put even more stress on the supporting teeth at either end
  • If the gap is at the back of the mouth, a bridge may not be an option
  • Needs replacing from time to time
  • Bone beneath the bridge shrinks, due to lack of use, leaving a gap

Partial denture

  • Dentures can be loose and uncomfortable, with food trapping beneath whilst eating
  • Causes the bone and gum beneath the denture to shrink
  • The clips which secure the denture can damage other teeth

Leave a gap

  • Unsightly compared to a dental implant
  • May impair eating, smile, speech, confidence
  • Bone and gum in the gap will shrink
  • Position of adjacent and opposing teeth can move over time causing other problems

Frequently Asked Questions

Here at E11even Dental, we specialise in dental implants in London and can assure you that we use local anaesthetic to numb the nerves surrounding the implant site, ensuring you don’t feel any pain.

Patients may feel some pressure when undergoing dental implant treatment but it shouldn’t cause you any discomfort.

After the procedure, it’s not uncommon for your gums to be swollen or bruised. Your cheeks, chin and underneath your eyes may also feel tender – but this should wear off within two weeks.

If the pain persists for longer, don’t hesitate to contact our dental team. We’ll take a look to determine the cause of the problem and advise on recovery.

Dental implants can last anywhere between 10 and 30 years, provided you care for them properly.

However, several other factors can affect the longevity of your implants, including:

Oral health – just like your natural teeth, you need to brush your implants twice a day and floss in between them to reduce the build-up of plaque.

Lifestyle choices – heavy drinking and smoking can have a detrimental impact on the lifespan of your dental implants, which is why we advise you to stop (or at least reduce) your intake.

Medical conditions – if you have diabetes or a compromised immune system, you’re more likely to suffer from infections – causing your body to take longer to heal and recover.

Injury or damage – the ceramic crowns placed on top of dental implants are susceptible to cracking and damage. Therefore, you mustn’t chew hard or sticky substances or use your teeth as tools to open bottles or packages. It’s also advisable to wear a gum shield in contact sports to prevent further damage to your implants.

If you’re toying with the idea of getting dental implants in London and want to make sure they last as long as possible, talk to the team at E11even Dental and we’ll advise you on how to prolong their lifespan.

You can expect to pay anywhere between £2,000 and £20,000 for dental implants in Harley District, depending on the number of implants being placed, the experience of the clinician, and the amount of surgical work required (i.e. bone grafting, sinus lift, periodontal treatment).
