Restore Missing Teeth in London with Dental Implants

Dental implants are an excellent alternative to being partially or totally edentulous (without teeth). They are being successfully used in London to replace either a single tooth or many missing teeth. Dental implants have an over 90% five-year success rate. Even though there are numerous other dental treatments available to replace lost dentition (teeth), dental implants performed in London have proven to be very useful, successful and long-lasting. In countless dental treatments, implants most likely are the choice correct choice to restore the correct functioning of your teeth. They are more natural looking, sturdier and longer-lasting when compared to other tooth/teeth replacement procedures, and offer a more lasting answer for missing teeth. Implants can be used for single tooth or multiple teeth replacement(s), and can also be used to stabilize partial or full dentures. Your dentist will decide which type and how many dental implants are required to obtain the optimal result.
Any dentist trained in the placement of implants can perform this procedure; however the patient may be referred to a dental specialist, especially if the implants are being placed in the area of the maxillary sinus. A dental team approach usually provides the patient with the best results. Successful implants require that all parties involved; the patient, and the dental team, outline and follow a careful plan of treatment and stay in close contact with each other to make sure the patient’s expectations are met.
Dental implants are mostly fabricated using a titanium alloy shaped in the screw-like form, with an attachment to place the final restoration. A little opening is made where the implant is to be placed to effectively guide the drill and the implant into position. To avoid damaging oral and facial anatomy, the practitioner must be very skillfull. For best results the dentist usually performs a comprehensive oral examination, X-rays and even a CT-Scan (a three-dimensional jaw scan), to ensure ideal dental implant placement.
