Dental implants – what’s involved?

If you need dental implants in Kentish Town then you have come to the right place. Ace Dental offers dental implants to patients looking to improve the overall health and look of their teeth.

We understand that having rotten or missing teeth can be a huge embarrassment, which is why we offer dental implants to people looking to fix a problem.

Dental implants are suitable for almost anyone who has lost one or more teeth and are looking to restore their appearance or the ability to eat and drink properly. That said, it is important that the patient’s bone tissue is fully developed, as this is what will be used to hold the dental implant in place. As such they are not used for patients under 18 years of age.

To be considered for dental implants in Kentish Town you will need to have a mouth in a healthy condition, with no untreated tooth decay or active gum disease. If implants are fitted into an unhealthy gum there is a danger that an infection will develop around the implant. This could then lead to its failure and loss.

Dental implants in Kentish Town – the process

Step 1

First you will need to have an examination with the dentist to ensure you are a suitable candidate for dental implants. This will include a routine examination of your mouth and possibly some x-rays if required, in order to get a better picture of your jaw.

Step 2

Step two is the preparation for the implant itself. A small insertion is made into your jaw bone where the implant will be screwed into place.

Step 3

The implant will be screwed into place and allowed to heal. The finish will be a close match to your existing teeth shade so that the implants are not obvious.

After you have had the dental implants fitted it will be essential that you attend regular check-ups with your dentist so that they may keep an eye on the progress and state of the dental implants.
