Why choosing dental implants could be the best decision you’ll ever make

Dental implants are an excellent way for a dentist to replace one or more of your missing teeth. At Moor Park Dental Centre in London our skilled implant surgeon can treat even complex cases, giving you back full confidence in your smile and full functionality in your jaw.

Whilst we understand that the concept of having oral surgery may be daunting, we believe that choosing to have dental implants could be one of the most important choices you can make.

There are several benefits to be gained from using dental implants to restore your missing teeth. Any dentist will advise you that missing teeth should be replaced one way or another; otherwise, your remaining teeth will move into any gaps, causing potential oral health issues as they can become crooked, twisted, and more difficult to clean, increasing your chances of gum disease, tooth decay, and ultimately of further tooth loss.

Dental implants are the only permanent way to replace missing teeth. At our London clinic we can place implants under local anaesthetic or sedation. If you require general anaesthetic for your implant placement you will be treated as a day patient at a local hospital.

Unlike standard bridges, those held in place by dental implants do not require any work on adjacent teeth. If your surrounding teeth are strong and healthy this removes the need for destruction of healthy tooth structure, whilst if those teeth contain large fillings or are decayed, they may not be able to support a standard bridge.

Traditional dentures have a tendency to become loose as your jaw bone starts to shrink. Implants prevent this, because they are in direct contact with the jaw bone, thus preventing bone loss.
