Placement of dental implants

Dental implants are placed in our Central London Studio by surgically implanting titanium anchors into the jawbone. These anchors function like natural tooth roots. After sufficient time has passed to allow the anchors to bond and fuse with the surrounding bone and gum tissue, studs are secured to the anchors. Natural-looking crowns can then be attached to the studs.

In many cases, patients desiring dental implants must first visit an oral surgeon to have the titanium anchors inserted. At Harley Street Dental Studio in London, we have our own team of surgery and implant placement professionals. From start to finish, we can provide the full range of treatment for your new dental implants in our Central London, UK Studio.

FEATURED PATIENT STORY

Ella

Ella had missing adult teeth which caused her front teeth to appear twisted and gappy. We offered Ella a range of potential treatments and she opted for veneers. By first manufacturing a smile prototype, our experts were able to show Ella how she would look after treatment. And we also provided provisional veneers so she could assess them for comfort before the real things were fitted.

Before and after

All implants are not the same!

Dental implants have the same goal – to provide solutions for missing teeth and in the process to improve a person’s quality of life. However, the quality (and the end-result) of all dental implants are not the same, and the differences will be influenced by a number of factors.

One of the main factors that affect the quality of dental implants is the cost involved. In the world of dental implants, and particularly with us the costs involved will reflect on the high-quality implants one can look forward to enjoying in the near future.

A variety of price ranges can be seen when looking at the various dental implant services offered. Getting to know more about the factors that affect the cost will be beneficial in deciding which offer to choose, after looking at the numerous offers available. Cost is determined by:

The expertise of the dental surgeon on a specific patient’s case
The type of dental implant to be used
The technology and equipment used
The skill of the dental technician to hand craft a bespoke natural-looking final crown or denture

Careful consideration should be made when deciding on which implant system to go for. As the implants are titanium screws placed directly into the jawbone, only the best in terms of dental implant quality, dental surgeon’s expertise, and technology should go into the whole process of dental implants placement. The procedure will involve not only a person’s tooth (or teeth), but the jaw bone, and the whole face as well so there should be very little to no compromise in terms of the quality of materials used, as well as the whole treatment planning stage.

Choosing a dental implant system is a crucial decision, as it can have a remarkable impact on one’s life for years to come. We offer Straumann, BTI and Nobel Biocare implants.

Benefits of dental implants

Life With dentures

Only those who have lived with missing teeth will appreciate what an inconvenience it can be.The many minor frustrations can soon add up and begin to take a significantly debilitating toll on day-to-day life.Among patients’ chief complaints are an inability to eat their favourite foods, as well as the loss of confidence that comes from feeling embarrassed about smiling and laughing.Traditional dentures can go some way to restoring normality. However, they aren’t without challenges of their own.Wearers often find them challenging to keep in place properly. Much food remains off the menu, and the embarrassment of a toothless smile is replaced by the anxiety of wondering at which inopportune moment the dentures will next slip out.Then there is the inconvenience of having to struggle with denture glue and getting used to the feeling of a covered palate.It is little wonder that many denture wearers feel they have merely replaced the inconvenience of missing teeth with another set of problems altogether.

Problems solved

Implants offer a whole host of advantages over traditional dentures. Being permanently fixed in place, they restore form and function while solving all of the problems of removable alternatives.

Your diet improves

When was the last time you ate a steak or taken a bite of an apple without worrying if your teeth or dentures would let you down? With dental implants, you can go back to eating your favourite foods without having to worry. That isn’t just good news for your tastebuds. It also means having a healthier and more balanced diet overall.

Your sense of taste improves

Denture wearers will be all-too painfully aware of how dentures can get in the way of eating tough foods. They can also impair our enjoyment of easier-to-eat food. The problem lies in the plate by which dentures stay affixed to the mouth, which covers the palate and reduces taste. Implanted dentures remain fixed by way of a titanium component rooted in the jawbone, leaving the tastebuds free.

Smile more, talk more

The plate mentioned above also causes some wearers difficulties with speech. But worse is the tendency of dentures to work loose mid-conversation. Laughter is another cause of this annoyance, and many denture wearers will practice staying tight-lipped and poker-faced rather than confront the issue once and for all. With no more slippages and no more cumbersome fixing plate, it’s easy to see why dental implants help our patients get back to being their sociable former selves.

Convenience

In spite of all the advantages they offer, wearing removable dentures never quite feels like having natural teeth. One of the primary reasons for this is the checklist of accessories and good habits needed for day-to-day wear. Denture glue, spare dentures and cleaning tablets must all take their place in suitcases or handbags, and the daily routine of fixing and removal is a chore. Dental implants restore aesthetics and function. But more critical for some denture wearers is the restoration of a sense of normality to everyday life.

Restored confidence

Dental implants to resolve the myriad impracticalities of dentures or missing teeth. But perhaps the most significant life improvement they offer is of restoring confidence and repairing self-esteem.If you are ready to begin your new life with dental implants, there’s no one more experienced and better equipped to help you take the first step than the experts at Harley Street Dental Studio.Get in touch through our contact form to talk to our team and arrange a consultation.
