Dental implants have revolutionised modern dentistry by allowing dentists to replace your missing teeth without damaging your natural teeth. Unlike fixed bridges and removable dentures, which need to be replaced every few years, dental implants are durable and long-lasting.
In Harley Street Dental Clinic, dental implants in Harley Street are our treatment of choice when natural teeth are lost due to trauma, decay, poor past treatment choices or bad hygiene. Our experienced dentist will examine your teeth in detail and help you determine which implant solution is right for you. With dental implants in Harley Street, we can replace one, several or all of your missing teeth.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are small titanium posts which are surgically fixed into the jawbone. Typically dental implants are made from materials that are biocompatible, such as titanium. Titanium is not recognised by the body as foreign and therefore, the body does not reject it. Once they are attached to the jawbone, dental implants fuse with the bone tissue and create a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth such as crowns, bridges and dentures.
Am I a good candidate for dental implants?
Dental implants have been successfully used in dentistry over the last 30 years. Their success rate is greater than 90% and in those rare cases where they fail, they can usually be reattached. Rather, it is the lack of an adequate amount of bone in which to place the dental implants, which can prevent their use.
Few medical conditions can prevent the successful placement of dental implants in Harley Street. Even if your jawbone is not adequate, there are implant techniques that allow us to replace your missing teeth with dental implants. Nor is age usually a factor. Dental implants can be as successful in young adults as they can be in elderly patients.
Do dental implants require special care?
Dental implants require the same care that your natural teeth need. Visiting the dentist for regular dental check-ups, proper oral hygiene, and a healthy diet are the best ways to ensure your dental implants stay strong and healthy for longer.
