Replace Missing Teeth with Dental Implants in London

Dental implants have been available for a long time, and over the years many significant advances have been made in the field. They are excellent alternatives to replace missing teeth. Your London dentists have the expertise to replace single and numerous teeth with dental implants. Dental implants have proven to be very successful and long lasting, and are most likely the correct choice to restore your teeth. Dental implants seem to be a better alternative to other teeth replacement procedures, and have also been used with great success to stabilize dentures. Your London dentist will review what is involved in terms of replacing your teeth with dental implant(s), and will recommend the appropriate type and number.
Your London dentist is properly trained and certified in the placement and use of dental implants. However, there may be times when he/she will refer you to a surgical specialist if your case is very complicated. Successful dental implants are better performed when all of the procedures are carefully planned out, and all of the diagnostic material is collected beforehand, such as proper radiographs, models, intra-oral and extra-oral examinations, bite registrations, study models, and even a tomogram if necessary. This will give your dentist a three dimensional image of your jaw bone(s), where the implants are to be placed. Mostly fabricated of titanium, and having a barrel or screw shape, dental implants are placed into your jaw bone using special drills. After they are placed, it will take some time from most regular dental implants to become very solid in the bone. Following this period of time, the proper tooth/teeth restoration(s) can be inserted.
