Dental Implants Hampstead

Teeth allow us to do some of the most enjoyable things in life: enjoying meals with loved ones, having long conversations with friends or smiling in photos to create memories that will last forever. But sometimes, missing teeth or loose dentures can prevent us from making the most of these moments.

We offer a permanent, natural-looking solution that will transform the way you live your life. Those foods you used to eat whenever you could? They’ll return to your diet again, and you’ll enjoy them without any pain. The urge to cover your mouth when laughing with friends or smiling in photos? It will become a thing of the past. Instead, you’ll discover new-found confidence, happiness, and a sense of self.

What makes dental implants so special?

Dental implants integrate into your jawbone, making them a permanent solution to replace missing or loose teeth. Not only does the tooth blend in perfectly with your other natural teeth, but the artificial titanium ‘root’ anchors it to your jaw, just like a natural tooth root. It looks and functions exactly like your natural teeth, so no one needs to know you’ve had treatment. At Rosslyn Hill Dental Clinic, your implant treatment will:

Restore facial structure where you might otherwise lose bone density

Be carried out in a safe and predictable way

Last for up to 30 years (or longer) with proper maintenance 

Maintain the health of your gums, surrounding teeth, and jaw

Help you regain your confidence and youthful appearance

Give you healthy teeth to help you enjoy life with

Our dentists have years of experience transforming patients’ smiles – so whether you’re looking to replace a single tooth or an entire mouth of teeth, he can help. Why not book a consultation to see what we could do for you? 

During the implant procedure

You might be dreading this part, but trust us! It’s relatively painless, mainly due to the local anaesthetic we administer before the procedure. If you’re particularly nervous about the treatment, we can offer IV sedation; this means you will be conscious during the procedure but in a state of deep relaxation.

The procedure will only take around 20 minutes per tooth, and patients often report it as less painful than a tooth extraction! In most cases, we will temporarily replace your missing tooth with a crown until we fit your permanent replacement tooth. Discomfort in the days following the procedure is normal, and we recommend painkillers such as Paracetamol and Ibuprofen to manage this.

Creating and fitting your replacement crown

Now, this is the most exciting part for you. Around three to four months after your placement, the titanium implant will have fused with your jaw in a process called ‘osseointegration’. It’s there to stay! We will take an impression and send it to our specialist dental lab. They will tailor-make a crown that matches your natural teeth perfectly.

Around two weeks later, after the lab has created your crown and returned it to us, we will see you at the practice to screw it into your dental implant. And voilà! A replacement tooth that looks and functions just like your natural teeth.

We care for your unique smile

We stand by the tried and tested motto that ‘prevention is always better than cure.’ Preventative dental care is essential for maintaining good oral health and preventing dental problems before they develop. This includes regular check-ups, cleanings, and x-rays to detect any issues early on. By focusing on prevention, we can help you avoid more costly and invasive treatments down the line, and keep your teeth and gums healthy for years to come.
