Dental Implants in Wimpole Street

Implants are artificial roots and are gently and precisely placed into the jawbone under sterile conditions and under local anaesthesia.

Why Wimpole Street Dental Clinic?

You don’t have to live with gaps between teeth forever.

Whether you have a single missing tooth or you’ve lost multiple teeth over your lifetime and are ready to restore your smile, Wimpole Street Dental Clinic can assist. We use state-of-the-art technology to create tooth implants and restorations that mimic the look and feel of your natural teeth.

Our highly experienced implantologist and specialist in prosthodontics, Prof Christian Mehl, is certified by the German Society of Prosthodontics, the German Society of Implantology and the General Dental Council, so you can have peace of mind that you’re in the best hands possible when you get our dental implants.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Teeth implants can do more than boost your confidence and make smiling more natural again. Some of the advantages of exploring dental implants treatment include:

  • High levels of comfort — Our tooth replacements feel just like your natural teeth.
  • Durability — Dental implants can last a lifetime when you prioritise proper oral hygiene habits.
  • Jaw bone stability — Wimpole Street Dental Clinic designs dental implants in London that won’t degrade the jaw bone over time.
  • Natural teeth safety — Teeth surrounding your new dental implants are not impacted; the tooth replacement sits securely in place and will not rub against your other teeth.

 

What is involved in the dental implant procedure?

If you’re committed to getting dental implants, you can expect the following during your treatment:

  • Before we place an implant, perfect diagnostic records and treatment planning are essential for long term success. Photos, a 3-dimensional X-ray and a digital scan of your teeth are a precondition for our computer-guided implant operation.
  • During the implant operation we open the gums and place the dental implant into the prepared bone. In 99% of the cases we place a titanium implants.
  • After a short healing period, the implant is exposed to the oral cavity and another digital impression taken.
  • Two weeks later, the final restoration, e.g. a crown, bridge or denture is attached.

Remember: If you are feeling nervous or uneasy about the treatment in any way, we can offer sedation before we get started.

What do you do after your dental implant surgery?

Immediately after the dental implants treatment, the pain medication will wear off over time. To prevent further pain, we will prescribe a medication for you to take home. After about a week, the discomfort should subside completely.

Taking care of your dental implants involves using dental floss and inter-dental brushes regularly. We also recommend coming into the office at least twice a year for routine cleanings and check-ups.

Do not confuse healing time with immediate loading!

The possibility of immediate loading of implants means that the implants are screwed so stably into the bone that an immediate load is possible, although the healing is not yet completed. This method is used, for example, in the process of using fixed teeth in one day or for implants in the aesthetic zone at the front of the mouth. The prerequisite for this is a suitable implant system and precise diagnostics before the intervention by means of 3D X-ray (CBCT).

Immediately loaded implants explained step-by step



It is important that the patient follows the instructions of the implantologist precisely to avoid overloading the implant. For standard implants, immediate loading is usually not an option. In uncomplicated surgeries, the patient may be able to eat soft food again after the anaesthetic has worn off, but chewing is to be avoided in the surgical area.

If necessary, patients will receive a removable temporary restoration after surgery. Often this must be relined again after about 14 days since the gums are then back to their normal shape.

Who is not suitable for dental implants?

Are you unsure if you’re the right candidate for tooth replacement surgery? If you can relate to the following scenarios, schedule a consultation with an implant dentist to find out whether dental implants are still the best option for you:

  • You take certain medications that suppress your immunity.
  • You grind or clench your teeth regularly.
  • You smoke more than five cigarettes a day.

What types of implants are available in our London practice?

It’s important to have options, especially when it comes to opportunities for full mouth restoration. At Wimpole Street Dental Clinic, we have a variety of dental implants to choose from, such as:

  • Conventional dental implants:
    The most common type, these implants are made of titanium. They have slightly less aggressive threads and are the „workhorses” in implantology.
  • Modern implants:
    The surface of the dental implant is prepared more efficiently so the artificial tooth root can heal faster. Additionally, these implants have slightly more aggressive threads and can be used for immediate loading.
  • Zygomatic implants:
    Made of titanium like the conventional option, but this type of dental implant differs in length, measuring between 30mm and 55mm as opposed to 5mm and 18mm.
  • Fixed teeth in a day dental implants:
    Inserted into the jaw in one day using state-of-the-art implant technology.
