Natural-Looking Dental Implants in London

Do you have a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth? Missing teeth have traditionally been countered with bridges and dentures. However, dental implants are a modern dentures alternative becoming more widespread. Implants replace tooth roots, providing a foundation for fixed or removable replacement teeth. They can be made to match your teeth as an added bonus. Almás Dentistry & Aesthetics proudly provides dental implants in our London, Cricklewood clinic. Discover implant advantages when you schedule a personalised consultation with our team.

Reinvent Your Smile With Full-Mouth Dental Implants

Artificial tooth roots typically made from titanium, dental implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone. Custom-fitted crowns are then attached, allowing them to blend in with your natural teeth. Depending on the amount of bone present, bone grafting may be necessary to strengthen the jawbone before prepping for implant placement. Once the implants have been placed, the jawbone grows around them in a process known as osseointegration, which can take several months. Many patients with multiple missing teeth prefer tooth implants as a long-lasting solution for restoring their full smile. You won’t have to worry about false teeth that do not appear natural when you choose dental implants. Our London clinic offers state-of-the-art tooth replacement options such as All-on-4 implants:

Benefits of All-on-4 Implants

All-on-4 implants allow a fixed bridge to be fitted onto four dental implants in one day. Normally, a patient would need 6-10 dental implants to replace all missing teeth in either jaw. Sometimes, this would even require adding artificial bone. However, in this procedure, only four implants are placed at specific angles to allow the surgeon to use longer implants, providing greater stability. An immediate temporary bridge is then screwed into the implants. Also known as “Same-Day Teeth,” All-on-4 implants allow patients to arrive in the morning and leave with a new set of fixed teeth by the afternoon.

Benefits of All-on-4 dental implants include:

  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Less pain and swelling
  • No more ill-fitting dentures
  • Eliminates denture adhesives
  • Teeth are secure like your natural teeth
  • Fewer dental visits
  • Immediate results
  • Cost-effective compared to traditional implants
  • Life-changing procedure
  • New teeth in as little as just one day
  • After the procedure, you can eat, speak, and smile with confidence

What Can Tooth Implants Achieve for Patients?

Dental implants can significantly enhance your quality of life by restoring full functionality of the mouth, allowing you to enjoy your favourite foods and speak clearly. Implants also play a critical role in maintaining facial structure by preventing bone deterioration caused by tooth loss or gum disease. Tooth implants eliminate the need for removable dentures, offering a convenient and permanent tooth replacement solution for patients of all ages. Once you replace your full mouth of teeth with implants, you care for them the same as you would your natural teeth, with daily brushing, flossing, and regular visits to the dental hygienist. Benefits of choosing dental implants to replace missing teeth include:

  • Aesthetics – Implants are designed to mimic the appearance of your natural teeth, so they are completely unnoticeable to anyone else.
  • Comfort – Unlike poorly fitted dentures, which can slip, implants fuse with your bone structure, meaning they are a permanent fixture.
  • Pain-Free – Because implants fuse with your teeth, you can eat all your favourite foods, no matter how chewy or crunchy, without suffering any adverse issues or pain.
  • Long-Lasting – Implants will last for a long time with sufficient care. There is no reason why you would ever need to replace implants.

What Should You Expect Post-Tooth Replacement?

After the dental implant procedure, patients may experience some discomfort, swelling, bruising, or bleeding. Pain should subside within a few days. These symptoms are typically manageable with medications. We usually recommend a soft-food diet and refraining from smoking during healing. Patients will be given instructions on how to clean the implant sites and surrounding teeth. Follow-up appointments with our team will help us monitor your health and how you are adjusting to the implants. With proper care, you can enjoy the full benefits of dental implant treatment for many years to come.

Before & After

Frequently Asked Questions

Dental implants fuse with your jawbone, offering standalone support that will not compromise other teeth (unlike bridges). This direct fusion helps maintain bone density and facial structure. Dentures often slip and cause discomfort, requiring adhesives to stay in place. Full-mouth dental implants offer our London patients more stability and convenience. Implants are tailored to each individual for natural-looking, long-lasting results. With the proper care, tooth implants can last a lifetime, whereas dentures and bridges usually need to be replaced or repaired after several years.

Dental implants offer an excellent tooth replacement solution for London patients with multiple missing teeth. When several adjacent teeth are missing, an implant-supported bridge can be constructed with several connected crowns. The adjacent natural teeth do not need to be prepared like they would with traditional bridgework. Full-arch or full-mouth dental implants offer a transformative solution for our patients. A series of implants are placed along the jaw to act as anchors for a full dental bridge. Unlike traditional dentures, these implant-supported options are stable, do not need to be removed for cleaning, and provide a functional bite closer to your natural teeth.

Because they are surgically anchored into the jawbone, implant surgery is considered a permanent solution for tooth loss. Implants can last a lifetime with proper maintenance. However, the crown or artificial tooth placed on the implant may wear over time and could need replacement after 10-15 years.

Dental implants come with potential risks and complications similar to any surgical procedure. While they generally enjoy a high success rate, infection could occur at the implant site if post-operative instructions are not followed. Damage to surrounding structures such as blood vessels, teeth, or nerves could occur during the procedure, causing pain, numbness, or tingling, although this is rare. Another rare complication could occur if the implants protrude into the sinus cavities. The body could also reject the implants, meaning the jawbone does not fuse successfully with them. Complications such as these could result in the need for bone grafting or additional procedures. During your consultation, we will go over all possible risks and complications to determine your best tooth replacement treatment plan.

As long as you are in general good health with regard to routine dental surgery, you will qualify for dental implants. You need to have healthy gums and enough bone to form the foundation for the procedure. Good oral hygiene and a regime of regular dental visits are also recommended. If you fall into higher risk categories (if you have diabetes or heart disease or are a heavy smoker), you will need to be assessed individually. The same goes for anyone who has had radiation treatment to the head or neck area. Your dentist can advise you about the best course of action.
