Dental implant procedure

At Shirley Park Dental, our team of dentists will prepare a customised treatment plan based on the needs of the individual. After this, the tooth root implant made of titanium will be placed into the bone socket of the missing tooth. When the jawbone begins to heal, it grows around the implanted metal post by anchoring it securely in the jaw. The healing process may require somewhere from six to twelve weeks.

Once the implant is bonded to the jawbone, an abutment will be attached to the post which will hold the new tooth in place securely. Our dentist at Shirley Park, South Croydon will create impressions of your teeth so that they can start making your new teeth. The new tooth/teeth will be based on this particular model and a replacement tooth, known as a crown, will be attached to the abutment. Some patients might have attachments placed on the implant which supports and retains a removable denture.

Our dentist will match the color of your new teeth to your natural teeth. Since the implant is secured within the jawbone, the replacement teeth will look, feel, and function like your natural teeth.

FAQs on dental implants

Who is the right candidate for dental implants?

Dental implant is suitable for most adults who have good health and healthy gums. However, they are not a good option for children and young people under 18 since their bones are still growing. Our dentist will suggest if you can perform the treatment.

How painful is the implant procedure?

Unlike other surgical procedures, dental implants involve some discomfort. However, local anaesthesia may be used so that the implants can involve less pain when compared to tooth extraction.

How long will implants last?

With proper care and maintenance, dental implants are meant to last for a lifetime. They are a permanent solution for lost teeth.

What is the cost for the procedure?

Our dentists at Shirley Park Dental charge affordable rates when you perform an dental implant treatment at our South Croydon clinic. The price for a tooth implant is £1800 while the cost for multiple teeth implants may be as high as £15000.
