A dental implant is a great solution for replacing your missing or lost teeth. Whether you are living in Harley Street or somewhere in London, our dentists at DS Dental Clinic will surgically place a titanium post into the jawbone forming an artificial replacement for the root of the tooth. They can help to support dentures or crowns, in the same way that roots support natural teeth. Your missing teeth can dent your confidence and affect the way you eat and speak. Dental implants provide a long-term solution replacing missing teeth and improving overall appearance.
A dental implant is a titanium screw surgically placed into the jawbone to replace a missing tooth. Once it gets fitted, the bone surrounding the implant gradually fuses to it and holds the implant firmly in place. A false tooth, a crown or denture will then be fitted to the implant or the abutment providing a natural looking smile.
We have different kinds of traditional or standard implants.
There are several factors that determine if you are the right candidate for our Same Day Teeth procedure. These include – your age, health, the amount of missing hard and soft tissue, expectations and financial situation. If you do not fulfill any of these criteria, then this will mean you are not a suitable candidate to undergo the same day procedure. We can offer you other implant assisted treatments.
We provide different options from dental implants to assisted dentures. Our effective solutions include the following:
Also called “overdentures,” these implant-supported lower dentures are considered to be of good quality in treatment options for your missing teeth. They can replace your lost teeth with strong and stable dentures that can be removed according to your convenience. However, you need to fit it snugly into proper place until you need to remove for proper cleaning or maintenance.
Dentures supported this way ensure to provide complete stability that implants can only offer due to affordable price of dentures.
Fixed Arch of Teeth
Whether you are about to lose your remaining teeth or have no teeth, another option is to complete the denture customised into an arch of interim and non-removable teeth. This will be attached securely to a minimum of four implants. This is extremely important for people who do not wear or cannot tolerate a conventional full palate denture. After the implant has been integrated, the interim arch of teeth gets removed and replaced with a long-term bridge that will look and feel like a natural arch of teeth.

For an implant to osseointegrate, it needs to be surrounded by a healthy quantity of bone. For longevity, it should also have a thick healthy soft tissue (gingiva) envelope around it. It is quite common for either the bone or soft tissue to be so deficient that the dental surgeon has to reinforce it either before or during the implant placement.
Bone grafting will be necessary if you do not have sufficient bone for the procedure. Though there are new types of implant such as short implants and techniques to enable compromise, the objective of the treatment is to have at least 10 mm in bone height and 6 mm width. Other than this, bone defects are graded from A to D where A=10+ mm of bone, B=7–9 mm, C=4–6 mm and D=0–3 mm and the probability of an implant for osseointegrating is related to grade of bone.
If you need to attain the adequate width and height of bone, different bone grafting techniques are possible. The most frequently used is known as bone graft augmentation where an imperfection gets filled with either allograft (donor bone or synthetic bone substitute) or natural (harvested or auto graft) bone. This is then covered by a semi-permeable membrane and allowed to heal completely. During the healing phase, natural bone will replace the forming a new bony base for the implant.
Depending on your jawbone and specific need, your dental surgeon may suggest other treatment options other than the traditional dental implant procedure. Some of these options are:
After Dental Implant surgery there might be some swelling on the face or inside the mouth, as well as pain and discomfort.
This is quite normal and you can take painkillers (provided by the dental surgeons at DS Dental). You can use ice on the affected area to reduce the swelling. Antibiotics are also prescribed.
Usually stitches are removed 7-10 days after the implantation surgery, however DS Dental uses resolvable stitches, which means you will have to visit the surgeon to have the stitches removed.
