Our highly trained staff are on hand to guide you through your treatment and ensure you get the most out of advances in dental technology.
Dental implants versus dentures: a clear winner
Dentures are the long-standing solution to replacing missing teeth. However they only deal with what’s going on above your gums. Tooth loss also results in the loss of the tooth root. Dental implants are small titanium screws that act as artificial roots. Once fitted into your jawbone they actually encourage bone growth. This comes with several advantages over dentures.
Firstly dental implants provide a secure base for your replacement teeth to be attached. This results in a stability unmatched by traditional dentures and without the hassles of denture adhesives. Secondly, dental implants prevent the onset of bone degeneration and gum recession, which are common following tooth loss, even among denture users.
Getting dental implants in North London: the procedure
Fitting dental implants can be considered one of the more complex dental treatments, however there is no need to be nervous. Dental implants are placed under local anaesthetic or sedation to ensure your treatment is pain-free and as comfortable as possible.
After your implants are fitted, you will be given time to heal. This will also allow new bone to knit around your implants and firmly secure them in place. You can then have your replacement teeth attached, leaving you with a natural look and feel. Our friendly staff will provide you with all the advice you need on how to maintain good dental hygiene practices at home. Keeping this in mind, your dental implants can last as long as your natural teeth.
