Mar 19th, 2010 Lifelong replacement with dental implant from Central London dentist Get in touch

As a substitute for a missing or lost tooth it is hard to beat a dental implant for realism and authenticity. Dental implants are the only dental replacement that restores the whole tooth from crown to root and as a result is the sturdiest restoration available.

There are many reasons for losing a tooth ranging from accidental damage to gum disease but whatever the cause it can be a very painful and upsetting experience at any age. If a tooth has been knocked out or extracted due to decay it can be the cause of further dental complications causing pain and anxiety so it is always recommended by dentists to replace teeth as soon as possible. If a gap is left in the dental arc then it can cause the other teeth to move or rotate. This can lead to complications with bite and also increases the likelihood of further dental infection.

A dental implant is a small metal screw that a Central London will insert directly into the jawbone during a minor surgery. This acts as a solid base for a dental crown which will be attached after several weeks of healing and fusing. Once set firm in the bone and tissue, a post is attached to the screw onto which is fixed a specially designed crown.

Unlike other restorations, a dental implant will last a whole lifetime if properly cared for. Although the initial cost may be slightly more than other treatments, you need to bear in mind that once you have had implant surgery you are unlikely to need to spend any further money on future replacements.
