Dental implants in London: things to know before you go

While having dental work might not be one of your favourite things to do, it’s worth taking the time to get your smile back. If you’re thinking about getting dental implants in London, here are some useful things to know.

What does dental implant surgery involve – and how long does it take?

The process of attaching dental implants to your jawbone can provide longer-lasting results than other forms of surgery. As such, it’s not a speedy process – typically involving two stages of treatment over several months. Here’s what it involves step-by-step:

  1. Dial for a smile. Book a consultation at your local London surgery. Here, you’ll get professional advice on the best dental implant for you, based on the strength of your jawbone and the health of your gums.
  2. Magic roots. At your appointment, a small metal post (usually made from titanium) is placed in the bone socket of your missing tooth. As your bone heals over about 12 weeks, it grows around the metal and embeds it into your jaw.
  3. The crowning moment. Once your implant is anchored down, a connector is attached for extra security. Next, your dental care provider will take a model of your bite so your new, replacement tooth (called a crown) fits in perfectly. This is attached to the connector – and voilà, you’re done.
  4. Floss like a boss. Look after your dazzling new dental implants exactly like natural teeth. You should brush, floss, mouthwash and go for dental check-ups regularly to keep your teeth bright, white and healthy.

If this doesn’t sound like what you need, there are many other forms of dental treatment which may be more suitable.

How long does a dental implant last?

Dental implants are expected to stay in place for at least five years, but they can last a lifetime when properly maintained. These metal implants are super strong and the process is very secure, mimicking the root growth of a real tooth.

How strong are dental implants compared to real teeth?

Dental implants are the strongest form of tooth replacement. In some cases, they can prove to be even stronger than real teeth. Dental implants are made from strong metal and are anchored to your jawbone, restricting any movement or slippage. That said, the strength of your jawbone also plays a role in the strength and longevity of your new tooth. That’s why your dentist will assess your jawbone during your consultation, so they can recommend the best type of dental implant for you.

Is the dental implant procedure safe?

Dental implants are a safe and convenient way to replace lost teeth. The procedure has a 95% success rate – and is said to be the most successful type of dental implant, according to the International Congress of Dental Implantologists. As with any form of surgery, complications can occur – but the risks are very low. In some rare cases, the mouth area might become infected or there could be some nerve damage. However, with implants this is in a small minority of cases and is usually easy to fix.
