Dental Implants
in London

What are dental implants?


Implants are simply titanium screws replacing the former roots of a tooth. They are precisely placed into the jawbone socket under sterile conditions and using local anaesthesia in a surgical treatment. Once the implant has healed into the bone, as full ceramic final restoration is placed. They are produced using our state-of-the-art technology to deliver a perfect match to the look and feel of your natural teeth. You may need to consider this field of specialist dentistry concerned with replacing teeth if you have a gap in your smile impacting on both your personal comfort and confidence for reasons both practical and aesthetic.

Who is suitable for dental implants?

Implants are normally a procedure for adults with a fully formed jaw who may have one or more missing teeth. Dental patients in good general and oral health without presenting with extensive tooth decay or gum disease, who are not taking immunosuppressant medications, who are not regularly clenching or grinding teeth and refraining from smoking more than five cigarettes daily are considered at consultation.

Each case presents differently so trust your dentist here at Wimpole Street Dental Clinic to be in the best position to advise if dental implants are suitable for you on this occasion.

Why is Wimpole Street Dental Clinic best for dental implants in London?

The use of dental implants is a specialist field of dentistry called Implantology and forms one of the dental restoration options available to you within Prosthodontics, Periodontics and Oral Surgery. This level of expertise for this dental procedure is one where you need to consult the skills of a certified master of their profession.

  • At Wimpole Street Dental Clinic, we have Professor Christian Mehl a specialist prosthodontist certified by the German Society of Prosthodontics (DGPro), The German Society of Implantology (DGI) and the General Dental Council (GDC) and Dr Dragisic a Specialist Oral Surgeon (GDC). Both have decades of experience, publish peer-reviewed publications and lecture regularly.
  • We can offer you a choice of dental implants and treatment options including the conventional delayed titanium implants and more modern approaches from zygomatic implants to immediate implants to teeth-in-a-day. Plenty of implants variety for you to choose from in consultation with a member of our team. Rest assured that we have many years of combined dentistry experience and use the very latest technology and methods to achieve our award-winning results.
  • Immediate implants, sometimes known as ‘same-day implants’ are where a dental implant is directly placed into the extraction socket of the former tooth. The benefit of same-day implants (or ‘immediate implants’) is that it is a surgical procedure that is more convenient for the patient, meaning that the socket is exposed for a shorter period of time (thereby reducing the risk of infection). Additionally, the placement of same-day implants associated with a temporary keeps the bone and soft tissue in better condition and guarantees a better aesthetical result.
  • We are experts and skilled at immediate implant placement and our London dental clinic is fully equipped with the latest innovative immediate implant technology that allows us to deliver effective, reliable and swift results.

What happens when dental implants are fitted?

  • After consultation, if you agree to receive a dental implant, your dentist will use photos, a 3D X-ray and a digital scan of your teeth to prepare to proceed with our computer-guided implant operation for you.
  • Rest assured you will receive an appropriate anaesthesia before the procedure begins.
  • We access the bone by way of a small incision so as to place the dental implant into the prepared jaw bone socket. In 99% of our dental implant cases, we use a titanium implant.
  • Post-procedure and after a short healing period, the implant is exposed to the oral cavity and another digital impression is taken by your dentist to evaluate the success of the treatment and to prepare for the final restoration.
  • Two weeks later, the final restoration is conducted using a crown, bridge or denture as required and the placement is completed. If you want immediate same-day implants, your treatment plan is likely to be slightly different but your dentist will explain in full what is required for immediate implant placement on the same day.

Wimpole Street Dental Clinic are specialists in implantology

Dental implants are a popular choice for patients looking to restore and improve their smile. We have decades of combined experience in implantology as well as all the latest and most innovative technology and techniques to help deliver the best results.

We offer a wide variety of implants to suit every patient’s needs, budget and circumstances, even if you’re looking for same-day implants, our team can help.


Dental implants are an artificial method of replacing teeth so they are not susceptible to tooth decay but they still need to be cleaned and cared for with dental floss and interdental brushes.

Standard dental implants can last for approximately 20-30 years depending on how well you look after them once fitted.

A dental implant is an artificial restoration of a missing tooth in the mouth. It is a prosthesis you will not be able to feel as a natural tooth with a nerve ending but it will be a perfect match to the look and feel of your surrounding teeth and form an integral part of your restored smile and match the colour of your surrounding natural teeth.

You can take our current dental implant fees from the table above.

Dental implants represent a significant investment in the restoration of your smile including the preservation of your personal comfort and confidence and your oral health.

If you’re seeking immediate implant placement or “same-day dental implants” then it is likely that the cost for this dental procedure will be higher than spreading our the treatment over a number of weeks. This is because this same day implant treatment requires greater expertise and time to complete on the same day.

It requires a considerable amount of precise preparation and the skills of an expert in implantology and prosthodontics to deliver it to ensure the greatest level of clinical success which we, at The Wimpole Street Dental Clinic, are proud to provide as leaders in this field of dentistry. 

The duration of your dental implant treatment varies depending on how many you require. It usually takes a couple of hours to fit one immediate dental implant to cover one missing tooth. Immediate dental implants are ideal for patients who want to resolve the issue quickly and effectively. Immediate implants are also beneficial for the patient’s oral health as they ensure that the open socket isn’t exposed for too long to bacteria and potential infection.

Receding gums, often the result of the advanced stages of periodontitis can make it too difficult to receive a dental implant as the artificial root needs the support of healthy gums, jawbone and soft tissue around the jaw to secure it successfully within the mouth. Should this be a concern for you, contact us to book an appointment.

Circumstances can arise which may mean that dental implants are not a suitable treatment for all.  These include patients presenting with extensive tooth decay or gum disease, patients taking of immunosuppressant medications, patients who regularly clench or grind their teeth and patients smoking more than five cigarettes daily. Your dentist will always inspect your teeth and jaw in order to see if the jaw and surrounding area is strong enough to support implants.

Please book an appointment at our London clinic to discuss the possibility of receiving same day dental implants with a member of your team in your individual case for the best advice.

This dental surgery is a well-established treatment option within the specialist field of implantology within prosthodontics. Please make an appointment to consult Professor Christian Mehl at Wimpole Street Dental Clinic where he would be delighted to answer any questions you may have regarding the safety and efficacy of this procedure.

Lucy Bell

I had regular appointments with Dr Mehl in a period of just over a year and a half, including bone removal and bone augmentation in the jaw and placement of an implant. The practice is modernly equipped. Dr Mehl, his colleagues, and the staff are always friendly and have a calmness that transfers to the patients. Despite the manual work required in my jaw, such as drilling, chiseling and milling, I felt reasonably comfortable during the treatments. Nothing hurts. In addition, I have the feeling that I was well advised and that I have found a doctor in Dr. Mehl who is professionally up to date.
