Single Tooth Implant at Wimpole Street
A dental implant is a small titanium screw that acts as a tooth root to secure a tooth in the bone and present a strong foundation for whatever is then built on top of it. The implant is used to connect the crown, which replaces the part of the tooth you see in your mouth. The implant and the crown are connected by a part called the 'abutment'.
Dental Implants offer a number of benefits over alternative solutions such as bridges including that they won't contribute to bone loss which can occur under a bridge and have a longer lifetime. Traditionally the process of having dental implants fitted has taken in excess of three months. After initial surgery, the process of osseo-integration is allowed to take place whereby the implant fuses with the bone in which it is placed. Then a second surgery is required to expose the implant and fit the permanent teeth.
However, at United Smile Centres, we offer a Same Day Teeth solution at Wimpole Street Clinic. Using the latest generation of dental implants with specially treated surfaces and improved thread designs, together with new proven and accepted techniques we can achieve much greater implant stability enabling us to fit dental implants and provide you with a tooth replacement to wear home on the same day. Healing is quicker too with less discomfort and a second surgery is not normally required.
