The dental implant process at our Marylebone dental practice:
Your Dental Implant Journey
The first step on any treatment journey with us at 19 Wimpole Street is an in-depth consultation, as it helps us to assess your smile, allows us to look over your dental history, and ensures you can discuss your tooth implant treatment in advance – with absolutely no commitment.
2. Dental Implants Treatment
This is where the magic of dental implants takes place when the tooth implant’s artificial root is surgically inserted into the jawbone. After a period of healing, your crowns or bridges can then be placed. The whole process takes place at our dental practice on 19 Wimpole Street, Marylebone, London.
At our dental practice in Marylebone, we are committed to dental excellence – so in our minds, your implant treatment doesn’t end until you’re fully healed. With tooth implants, you’ll need to follow special aftercare advice during healing, which involves tips such as avoiding smoking, appropriate foods to eat and how to manage any pain or swelling.
Your Dental Implant Questions
at 19 Wimpole Street Dental Practice Marylebone, London
At our Marylebone dental practice, the first step in your tooth implant treatment will involve a small incision in the gum line, allowing the titanium screw (root) to be inserted. Then, over a few months, the implant integrates with the jawbone. Finally, an abutment, followed by a crown or bridge, completes the tooth and gives you a discreet tooth implant you can show off with pride. In some cases, the patient may be able to have the crown/bridge fitted at the same time as the root, but it depends on various factors, such as the quality of the jawbone and the tooth (or teeth) being replaced.
There are lots of advantages to getting dental implants at our 19 Wimpole Street dental practice:
- A strong, stable tooth that could last a lifetime
- Restores bite and chew function
- Could restore structure to the face – creating a youthful appearance
- Prevents future gum and bone loss
- Prevents migration of the surrounding teeth
- Natural-looking smile
- Can be a cost-effective option
There are very few disadvantages to tooth implants:
- Healing time is required, as this is a surgical procedure
- It may be more expensive initially than alternatives
- There is a small possibility of failure or fracture (less than 10%)
There is always a very small risk of infection associated with any type of surgical procedure, which is why it’s so important to follow our detailed aftercare advice. In addition, certain factors could disrupt healing – such as smoking. To ensure the tooth implant is long-lasting, it’s essential to have a good dental routine and attend regular check-ups and hygiene therapy visits. If you have any problems after or during treatment, please contact our Marylebone dental practice so that we can help.
