Dental implants offer countless benefits for patients who are missing teeth or require dentures. Patients quickly notice how beautiful their smiles are and how attractive their gums now appear increasing the willingness to show off your smile. Our team of experts at London Periodontics and Implant Dentistry will focus on creating natural-looking dental implants that match the look and feel of your actual teeth.
Many patients cannot even tell the difference between their implants and original teeth. Additionally, dental implants improve oral comfort and speech in a way that traditional dentures do not. As a result, you will likely feel increased self-confidence when smiling or speaking at work or social occasions.

In addition to their many aesthetic advantages, dental implants offer a number of benefits for your oral health. Dental implants allow for the replacement of one or multiple teeth without affecting the adjacent teeth. Additionally, implants can support a bridge and eliminate the need for removable partial dentures. Finally, dental implants can help preserve the integrity of your mouth and face by supporting gum, cheeks, lips and jawbone structure.
Our doctors will thoroughly evaluate each patient and their particular situation to determine the best technique to achieve the desired result. Don´t be let the embarrassment and fear stop you from coming for a consultation at our London office. Helping people like you is what we do best. Contact us today!
Firstly, the implant (the part that replaces the root), is placed into your jaw bone. Over the next 3 months, the implant and the bone are allowed to bond together to form an anchor for your new tooth. During those 3 months, you can have a temporary tooth replacement option (such as a temporary bridge or denture) that can be worn over the implant site.
Occasionally, a second step of the procedure is necessary to uncover the implant and attach a healing cap. This temporary healing cap completes the foundation on which your new tooth will be placed.
Finally, a replacement tooth called “crown” is created for you by your dentist and attached to a small metal or ceramic post, called “abutment”. The tooth is then attached to the post in the implant. This is the point where it will feel like a new natural tooth, achieving the look and chewing capacity you were hoping for.
