Dental implants are a modern and predictable solution for people who have lost their natural teeth. At All Smiles Bromley all of our implant work is carried out by top implant dentist Dr Ash Deved. Thanks to his skills and experience, and to advances in implant dentistry, it is now possible to help more people than ever before to restore both functionality and aesthetic appeal to the mouth.
How it works
If you have lost all your natural teeth, or the majority of your natural teeth are failing, dental implants could be the perfect solution for you. They are bionic tooth roots that a dentist places directly in your jaw bone using a minor surgical procedure.
At All Smiles Bromley we are fully equipped to carry out implant surgery here in the clinic, and can provide sedation if you are nervous about visiting the dentist or require a lengthy procedure. To replace all of your natural teeth in one jaw, you will usually require between four and eight implants. Between four and six implants can support implant-secured dentures, while between six and eight will be used if a fixed bridge is deemed to be the best treatment option..
The placement of dental implants is meticulously planned, using CT scans of the jaw and the Simplant computerised implant planning system to ensure precision placement of your implants at exactly the right angle and in the best position to support your new teeth.
Once your implants are in place, they will be left to heal for a couple of months. During this time, the implants will mesh with your jaw bone, forming a firm attachment and creating a very strong base on to which your new teeth will be attached.
You will then be called back to our Bromley practice for your dentist to check healing and to attach your bridge or denture.
