Dental Implants London

If you're considering dental implants as a solution for missing teeth, let us guide you through the process and show you why we are a trusted choice for dental implants in London.

Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

Certain health factors are necessary for dental implant placement. Your dentist will help you meet these requirements with preparatory treatments if needed.

  • Bone Density: There must be enough bone at the site. A bone graft might be needed if there isn't enough bone.
  • Oral Health: Your teeth must be cavity-free and your gums healthy.
  • General Health: Since implant placement is surgical, good general health is essential for proper healing.

Dental implants need the same care as natural teeth: brushing, flossing, rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash, and regular dental check-ups.

Cost of Dental Implants in London

Dental Implants Starting at $3,500

In London, you can expect to pay approximately $3,500 to $6,000+ for a single implant. Full-mouth reconstructive dental implants can cost anywhere from $6,000 to $60,000 and up. Keep in mind that no dental practice can provide you with an accurate quote over the phone. The dental implant procedure is complex and depends on many unique factors for each individual.

Components of a Dental Implant

The root-form implant is the most common type and has three main parts:

  • Implant Screw: Made of titanium, this is surgically placed in the bone. The body accepts titanium well, and it fuses with the bone during healing (osseointegration).
  • Abutment: A metal connector attached to the implant screw, serving as the base for a crown, bridge, or denture.
  • Crown: The manufactured tooth that fits on top of the abutment. Bridges and dentures can also be secured to the abutment. Placing the crown, bridge, or denture is the final step.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Beautify Your Smile: Dental implants fill gaps and improve your appearance, giving you a younger and more attractive look.
  • Improve Oral Function: Implants fit, feel, and act like natural teeth, improving speech clarity and chewing ability.
  • Stop Jawbone Loss: Implants prevent bone loss and stimulate bone growth by distributing chewing forces throughout the bone.
  • Prevent Teeth Shifting: Implants fill gaps, preventing existing teeth from moving out of place.
  • Increase Your Self-Esteem: Implants restore your smile and boost self-esteem, enhancing the quality of life.
