for whatever reason, you may begin experiencing a significant change in your ability to eat, as well as in your appearance and confidence. Things you took for granted such as eating your favourite foods, kissing your loved ones or smiling confidently may become a struggle. In such cases, many people for the first time consciously start to realise just how vital their teeth are to their personal charisma and lifestyle. Today, however, with advances in dental-implant technology, suffering from missing teeth can be a thing of the past.
The Harley Street Dental Clinic is one of the leading centres of dental excellence in London, which specialises in placing teeth implants. Also known as teeth implants, teeth-implants are tiny titanium roots to which an artificial tooth is attached. The dentists at our clinic in London use the latest dental implant technology to perform the procedure as smoothly and painlessly as possible. Before the teeth implants procedure is actually performed, our dentists utilise modern computer imaging technology to show patients how their teeth will appear after the procedure is completed, ensuring they are involved at every stage of the process.
Teeth implants consist of three components – the titanium implant, the abutment and a holding screw. When they are assembled together, they can be approximately two centimetres in length. Dental implants come in different sizes and shapes, enabling our dentists at The Harley Street Dental Clinic to find the best solution for every patient’s individual needs. After dental implants are inserted, the procedure is usually completed by placing porcelain crowns or bridges.
Advanced dental anaesthesia has led to it being possible to perform teeth implant procedures in a pain free manner. At The Harley Street Dental Clinic, we are totally focused on pain free dentistry, as patient comfort is a top priority for us. We also use specialist dental software, which provides us with three dimensional images of a patient’s dental anatomy. This technology gives us precise information about jawbone density, location of tooth roots and nerves, which we can use to perform dental implant procedures of the highest quality, with minimal discomfort to our patients.
Dental implants are a durable permanent solution to missing teeth. Every year, dentists around the world place thousands of teeth implants, ranging from single tooth restorations to entire sets of teeth. As dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth, the demand for the procedure has been growing at a steady rate.
