Joe Bhat is our principal dentist at Moor Park Specialist Dental Centre and is a specialist in both Oral Surgery and Prosthodontics.
Losing your teeth can seriously affect your quality of life, creating unwanted issues with eating or speaking and also your appearance. If the smile you see in the mirror is not the one you would like, you may find that your confidence starts to suffer. Gaps in your mouth can also lead to instability for your remaining teeth, as they can drift. If you have avoided considering replacements because you do not like the idea of dentures, then you may be interested in an effective technique available in London. Dental implants are used by Moor Park Dental and offer a secure solution to missing teeth.
Why are dental implants so popular?
At our practice in London, dental implants are valued because they look, feel and function just like natural teeth. Your appearance will be restored and you can live fully again. While you can enjoy your new teeth, there are also other advantages that you may not be aware of. When you bite and chew, the pressure exerted on your jaw stimulates the bones and tissues, keeping them strong. This does not happen when there are gaps or you wear dentures; however,but implants perform the same role as natural tooth roots and keep your jaw healthy. Having implants allows any remaining teeth to be preserved. If you have a bridge, healthy teeth need to be ground down to support the bridge.
What should I expect?
When you have your first appointment regarding dental implants in London your concerns and requirements will be discussed. We will also take x-rays if required and provide you with a written report, suggested treatment plan and an estimate of costs. If the case is very complex we may require a CT scan. Your implants are small metal screws that are inserted into the jaw under local anaesthetic. When they are stable, they can be used as a secure base for a single replacement tooth, several teeth or a full set of dentures.
