Navigated Implants in London

The successful placement of dental implants involves a perfect positioning of the implant into the jaw bone. This process is much more accurate and predictable if using computer-navigated surgery and advanced 3D imaging. This also results in less invasion and much more comfortable procedure for both the surgeon and the patient.

What are navigated implants?

Navigated implants involve utilising computer-navigated surgery to insert the implant into the jaw bone with the highest levels of accuracy. Using advanced 3D imaging, the dentist can visualise the bone and position the dental implant in the right position, at the optimal angle and depth. This precision computer-aided technology not only helps us deliver the highest quality dental implants but also heightens the efficiency and comfort of the treatment, as the dentist is able to complete the treatment quicker and with less invasion without compromising on precision or accuracy.

Furthermore, by utilising this technology at the forefront of digital dentistry, we’re able to record every aspect of your placement allowing for future restorations to be easily reproduced more efficiently.

Who is suitable for navigated implants?

If you’re suitable for dental implants then there’s no reason you wouldn’t be suitable for navigated implants. This advancement in dentistry simply allows patients to receive a high level of precision and efficiency in their treatment, which in turn contributes to an increased success rate for the implants.

Navigated implants are ideal for patients who require extensive dental implantology work and might be missing numerous teeth. By using this digital dentistry technique, your dentist can prepare for the surgery in advance and reduce the amount of time required for the day.

Dental implants are common for patients seeking restoration to teeth that might be missing, damaged or decayed. Book a consultation with one of our dental implantology specialists today and they will be able to explain how the process works and what results you can expect. If you’re a smoker or heavy drinker, we might recommend that such a treatment isn’t suitable for you as such habits can harm the recovery and success rates of the implants. Alternate treatments might be more suitable if you’re unable to give up.

Hi, I have been recommended to Wimpole Street Dental Clinic. Booked an appointment for check up. My Dentist was Dr. Raul Costa. During the check up, some issues were discovered. Everything was explained into detail, and with the beat solution's. On the spot Dr. Raul Costa has dealt with the minor issues, which it was really great and helpful. For my next appointment, we had to work for at least 1 and a half hour. To be honest I am not really good in sitting for so long in a dentist chiar, and doing all sorts of procedures. But Dr. Raul Costa made it look, and feel very easy taking and comfortable. To be honest at one point I did fell asleep, which this never happened to me, during dental practice to my body. I am more than happy with the results, and also with the type of quality materials used. I have already recommended the clinic and Dr. Raul Costa to a few friends and family, which they already been there, and they are very happy. Can highly recommend Wimpole Street Dental Clinic, Dr. Raul Costa and all their professional stuff. Alex

Expertise shown by Dr S Chawla was excellent, calmed any nerves I had and let me know everything that was going to happen before doing anything. Gave a detailed plan and was able to answer any question I had for him. Unfortunately 2 Bitewing X-rays did not load so was exposed to unnecessary radiation. Hope they correct this Fault for future patients.

The whole team at this clinic are very professional, helpful and friendly . Dr Dejan Dragisic explained the whole procedure and put my mind at rest the whole whole time I was in the chair . I had very little pain afterwards . Worth every penny .

Excellence. I can't say this enough. Just Excellence, from the moment I walked in to when I left. I was very nervous after bad experiences over many, many years with other dental practices, resulting in me not going to a dentist. The receptionists were very kind and understanding, making me feel at ease. Prof Dr Christian Mehl was extremely patient, respectful, attentive, and assuring, and he explained everything to me. My treatment was smooth and flawless, with absolutely no pain. He is, without a doubt, a true professional. I have my faith restored, but most of all, I have finally, finally found a dental clinic and a dentist I can trust. I can't thank everyone enough. I don’t normally write or trust reviews. If you are reading this, then I assure you, you can trust this one.

Our latest work

What happens during navigated implant surgery?

  • The first step for all of our surgical procedures is to have a consultation with one of our dentists. In this consultation they will ask about your dental history, your oral health and any aspects of your lifestyle that might have an impact on the success of the treatment (e.g. do you smoke). Our dentist will then inspect your mouth and assess the extent of the situation so that they can devise an appropriate dental treatment plan. Once they have explained the recommended course of action and talked you through the procedure, they will book in an appointment for your 3D scan and other diagnostic records.
  • On the day of your 3D scan, you’ll come to our state-of-the-art dental practice in central London. A 3D cone beam computer tomography (CBCT) X-ray along with digital impressions and digital photographs of your mouth and teeth are taken so that we can begin our preparations for the surgery.
  • Using our innovative digital dentistry technology and techniques, we can then merge the CBCT, the digital photographs and impressions in a software program and virtually place the implant into the proper position to obtain the correct measurements, angle and depth required ahead of surgery. This also helps us create a highly precise and comfortable dental implant position for you. Then a computer-assisted implant guide is printed.
  • On the day of your surgery, you’ll come back to our dental clinic off Wimpole Street (just adjacent to the famous Harley Street) and be greeted by your dentist. They will explain all the steps of the procedure again as well as what you can expect immediately after surgery. When you’re happy to proceed, the implant guide will be used to precisely insert the implant in the pre-planned position. Using digital image guidance for the most accurate placement even allows us to have temporary tooth prepared in advance! You can opt to be sedated for the surgery by one of our anaesthetists so as to avoid feeling any pain or discomfort throughout.
  • After the surgery, you will be advised on what to do in order to secure the best chances of recovery and success for the implants.

Frequently asked questions

What is digital dentistry?

Digital dentistry refers to using digital equipment and digital technology to aid a dentist in their treatment. Digital dentistry in the case of navigated implants might refer to the use of 3D imaging, computer-aided guidance and digital records. Digital dentistry allows for a more efficient dental workflow and a higher standard of dentistry.

How much does navigated implant surgery cost?

The cost of the surgery is difficult to say without a face-to-face consultation with a dentist. Every patient’s oral condition is different and there are multiple factors that a dentist needs to consider before even making sure the patient is suitable e.g. their dental history, making sure the patient is free from diseases like gum disease, and that their lifestyle habits are suited to implantology. Book an appointment today with a dentist at Wimpole Street Dental Clinic and they will be able to assess your suitability and provide an estimated cost on examination.

What is the advantage of navigated implants?

The primary advantage of navigated implants is the accuracy and precision of the implant placement. The use of digital technology in practice not only allows the dentist to achieve more precise placement, but also improves the efficiency and speed of the treatment. This may be particularly calming to hear for nervous patients who might want to avoid long and multiple appointments.

Ultimately, navigated implants can see a higher success rate due to the comprehensive nature of the planning and precision involved.
