Long-term stability with dental implants in Harley Street

What do you want from your replacement teeth? Do you want teeth that look like your original teeth? Do you want teeth that don’t take too much time and hassle to keep clean? Do you want teeth that can bite and chew through any food you fancy eating? If you have answered yes to all of the above (and who wouldn’t?), then you need to investigate getting dental implants in Harley Street.

Dental Implants in Harley StreetDental implants in Harley Street are the latest generation of tooth replacement options. They revolutionised the world of false teeth when they first appeared in dental clinics more than 30 years ago. Dentists could see the versatility they offered, and came up with ways of making them more affordable and available to people.

At Harley Street Dental Clinic, we have been fitting people with dental implants for many years. We never cease to be delighted with how these little gems of dental engineering can transform lives, giving people back their spontaneity and freedom of diet.

Why so happy?

Dental implants are the only method of tooth replacement that mimics nature by replacing the root of the tooth. Fixed bridgework and dentures only replace the crowns, and this can cause problems for some people.

Dental implants replace the roots with little posts or screws made of titanium. This is a bit of a miracle metal as it’s one material that the body treats as part of itself rather than an invader it must get rid of. When dental implants are put into specially created channels in the jawbone, the body grows new bone tissue all over them. This is what holds the dental implants firmly in place, giving people back their chewing power.

One dental implant can hold up to 3 teeth on a bridge, so there’s no need to have one implant per lost tooth, which can save a lot of money. Plus, cleaning them is simply a matter of a rigorous oral health routine to remove plaque. If you are careful to keep your implants clean, you can expect them to last for at least 15 years, and probably for decades.
