Dental Implants

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots used to restore full form and function back to missing or damaged teeth. Implants are small titanium screws placed in the jawbone. They are left to fuse with the bone for several months before they are ready to support replacement teeth.

Our dental clinic in Lewisham provides high-quality dental implants to correct a range of common dental problems, including:

  • Missing (or soon-to- be missing) teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Damaged or cracked teeth
  • Decaying teeth
  • Failed crowns

Subperiosteal implants provide greater support for weaker jawbones, whereas endosteal implants are the ones most commonly used. Book a consultation with your cosmetic dentist in Lewisham to determine whether dental implants are right for you.

The benefits of dental implants:

  • Implants give you a beautiful smile that follows the natural curve of your jaw
  • You won’t have to be concerned about developing cavities
  • Simple aftercare: brushing, flossing, and regular dental checkups
  • Fixed teeth allow for clear speech
  • Implants prevent any remaining teeth from drifting
  • A comfortable and stable alternative to dentures
  • Restores bone loss and rejuvinates the face

What does the procedure involve?

Step one: Planning your treatment

You will meet with your private dentist in Lewisham to determine whether dental implants can help your case. You will have a full dental examination, and X-rays and 3D scans of your teeth and jaw will be taken.

Your jaw must have enough bone to support the implants. You may require a bone graft to strengthen your jawbone before the implants are placed.

Step two: Fitting your implants

Under local anaesthetic, your dentist in Lewisham will drill very small holes in the jawbone before fitting the implants. Temporary crowns, dentures, or bridges are then placed over the implants. Your jaw will be left to heal for several months.

Step three: Placing your permanent teeth

Once the implants have fused with the jawbone, you will return to our dental surgery in Lewisham to have your permanent crowns fitted. Your restorations will be the same colour and size of your natural teeth.

How long does the treatment take in total?

Treatment times vary depending on the patient, but it usually takes between six to eight months.
