Category: Immediate Dental Implants
We are all pushed for time these days, despite all our time-saving gadgets, so if we can find ways to save even more of this elusive stuff, we will jump at the chance. One way that you can save time and hassle if you are getting dental implants is to opt for immediate implants in London, which we offer here at Moor Park Specialist Dental Centre.
If you are coming to us for dental implants, there is a good chance that you have been referred by one of the 300 or more general dentists who use our implant surgeon Dr Joe Bhat when their patients need dental implants.
If you have a long way to travel to see us, then making the trip might include the added expense of an overnight stay in the capital. If you’ve got to do this more than once, then the expense can really add up, and the time too.
That’s when you might choose to go for immediate implants in London, which are also known as same day teeth. The insertion procedure is the same as when you have normal dental implants. The difference is that we fit your permanent crowns on as soon as we have put the implants in place. Usually, you would have to wait a couple of months while the titanium implants integrate with your jawbone. With immediate implants in London, you don’t. It’s all done in the same appointment and you walk out with your lovely new crowns all in place, instead of a gap, or your old bridge or denture.
Having immediate implants does not mean that you don’t have to go through the osseointegration process. In fact, it is very important that you do, because this is when your implants are becoming one with your jawbone, creating that incredibly strong chewing base that will allow you to eat whatever you want. Which is why you choose to get implants in the first place, right? That and knowing you’ll never have to face the embarrassment of false teeth sliding around and popping out. So, you must take very good care of your immediate implants and allow this process to happen properly.
If you are thinking about getting dental implants, one of the things that might be putting you off is the long waiting period between getting the implants fitted into your jawbone and having the crowns put on. At Moor Park Specialist Dental Centre, we are also an immediate dental implant centre in London.
Using an immediate dental implant centre in London means that you can get your implants fitted and new crowns attached to them all in one session. There’s no need to come back for anything more than a check to see if they are working properly.
The plus side of using an immediate dental implant centre in London, such as us at Moor Park Specialist Dental Implant Centre, is that you don’t have to spend a couple of months or more with temporary crowns. You already have your crowns in place and you wear them as you go through the healing process.
This healing process is a very important part of replacing lost teeth with dental implants, and you will still have to go through it. This is when the titanium posts that make upyour dental implants are becoming one with your jawbone. The process is called osseointegration, the implants are integrating with your bone, which is growing new bone tissue and blood vessels all over the surface of the implants. By the end of osseointegration, your dental implants will be held in place as securely as your natural teeth.
When you have immediate dental implants (or same day teeth, as they are also known), we make your permanent crowns for you before the insertion procedure and they are fixed onto your implants straight away. When you opt for the more usual procedure of waiting between the insertion surgery and getting the crowns fixed onto the implants, you continue to wear your old bridge or denture, or have a gap, while the integration process takes place.
Whichever one you choose, it is important to not put too much strain on your implants, which are not yet integrated into the sockets, so you might want to avoid tucking into a really chewy steak or testing your teeth on a toffee apple for a couple of months.
For many years, dental implants have been a viable tooth replacement option for patients who have lost teeth. Traditional dental implants involve securing the implant into the jawbone, followed by a tooth restoration after a few months. This time is needed for the implant to attach itself to the jawbone and create a strong and stable foundation for replacement teeth. However, the obvious disadvantage of this process is that it leaves the patients without replacement teeth for many weeks, or even months.
In recent years, implant dentistry has evolved considerably and now patients can have their missing teeth replaced from root to crown in a day with immediate dental implants in London. At Moor Park Dental, we are proud to offer this innovative technique that can save patients a lot of waiting time.
How do immediate dental implants work?
Immediate dental implants work just like any dental implants, with the exception that the procedure lasts only a few hours. In certain cases, immediate loading implant procedures are considered to be a better option than regular implants. Immediate load implants are exposed to chewing and biting immediately after implantation. However, immediate dental implants in London may vary from same-day implants to a shortly-delayed loading (usually three days to one week) as the creation of a replacement crown may be delayed.
Who can have immediate dental implants?
Although immediate load implants are gaining popularity among patients, they are not an ideal option for everyone. There are cases where immediate dental implants cannot be performed without serious risk of failure. On the one hand, there is a minimum amount of bone that is required for installation and the implant has to be in a position in the mouth to resist a minimum of chewing force. For a single dental implant, the dentist has to adjust the temporary crown in a manner to avoid any kind of excessive force on it and patients have to be careful not to put too much force on the implant.

If you know you are about to lose a tooth, or if you have suddenly lost a tooth, there may be a chance that you can get it replaced with an ‘immediate’ dental implant. Immediate dental implants are embedded into the jawbone shortly after tooth loss and before the gum starts to grow down into the socket.
At Moor Park Dental in London, immediate implants are ideal for patients who have just lost or about to lose a tooth or more. If you are experiencing tooth loss, come and talk to one of our dentists and we will guide you through the procedure. They will examine your teeth thoroughly and help you decide whether an immediate implant is the right option for you.
When are immediate implants possible?
Patients who are interested in immediate implants in London should meet two conditions. Firstly, they must have sufficient bone around the failing or missing tooth, and secondly, the gum tissue must not be infected. If both of these conditions are met, then it is possible for our dentist to carefully extract the tooth and place a dental implant in the socket. If the dental implant is stabilised into the jawbone, it may even be possible to mount the replacement tooth on the same day. This way, patients can come to the dental practice and leave with a fully functional tooth on the same day.
Advantages of immediate implants
Immediate implants have many benefits and the most important is that they drastically reduce the number of surgical procedures required for implant placement. Osseointegration, the process that describes the attachment of the dental implant to the bone tissue, is also more favourable when placing implants immediately following an extraction. This way, the width, height and volume of the jawbone are preserved intact. Moreover, the procedure keeps bacteria away from the socket and restores the functionality of the tooth. Last but not least, immediate implants in London improve the aesthetics by preserving your facial tissue.
If you are about to lose a tooth or have already lost one and you are thinking about replacing it, immediate implants in London may be the ideal option for you.
The pain of a lost tooth is often accompanied by embarrassment about the gap in your smile. At Moor Park Dental in London, immediate dental implants are a speedy and reliable way to restore your dental function and appearance. If you’ve fractured one of your front teeth in a dining mishap or a sporting injury, we may be able to use contemporary technology and skilful implant dentistry to get your mouth back to normal.
The benefits of immediate dental implants in London
This procedure minimises disruption, and leaves you free to carry on as you were before you lost the tooth. You may already know that implant dentistry involves the placement of small titanium posts into the jawbone. Sometimes, preliminary work like a bone graft or a sinus lift is required before the implants can be placed by a dentist in London. Immediate dental implants place the titanium post into the existing tooth socket. As long as your jawbone and gums are in a suitable condition, we can give you the new tooth on the same day you come in for the consultation.
The new teeth look natural, and have great stability. The cosmetic improvement will be obvious straight away when you’re out socialising in London. Immediate dental implants are customised to blend in with your existing teeth, which helps you to maintain a professional appearance. This aesthetic enhancement might improve your self-confidence. You’ll also be able to enjoy biting into your favourite foods without worrying that the new tooth will fall out. Plus, there’s no need to use dental adhesives, which can be such a messy feature of life with other kinds of replacements like removable dentures.
Your secure dental implant will last for many years. You look after it just like the rest of your teeth, so good oral hygiene is easy to achieve. When a tooth comes out, the thought of living for many years with a gap in your smile can be really upsetting. The friendly team at Moor Park Dental is happy to offer you the reassuring alternative of immediate dental implants in London.
