Dental Implant Ilford

What is a dental implant?

A Dental Implant is a small titanium fixture that serves as the replacement for the root portion of a missing natural tooth.
The implant is placed in the upper or lower jaw.
It will bond with the bone over time and thus serve as an anchor for the replacement tooth.
Dental Implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth.

Why would I need a implant?

It is vitally important to replace missing teeth with dental implants promptly in order to prevent health consequences such as:

  1. Bone loss
  2. Shifting and drifting of the teeth
  3. Alteration in the bite as a result of shifting teeth
  4. Jaw joint problems
  5. Difficulty in chewing properly
  6. Additional stress on the remaining teeth

How much time is required for an implant placement?

Traditionally, the procedure has been performed in a few steps.
The dentist began by installing the implant, which was left for from three to six months to heal and integrate with the jawbone.
Today, utilizing new techniques, in many cases bone heals around the implants much faster - sometimes several weeks is all that is needed, and sometimes even less.

How will I care for my implants?

Your new teeth must be cared for and checked regularly, just like your natural teeth.
Brush and floss as recommended by your dentist or dental hygienist.
See your dentist as recommended for follow up evaluations.
