Finding your smile
At The Garden Dental Practice, everything we do is done in the best interests of our patients. Our dedicated practitioners live to see the treatments they provide have a positive and uplifting effect on the faces of the patients who receive them.
We recognise that the last year has been a tough one for many, and many patients have put-off seeking the dental care they require. Now, however, as ‘normal’ life gradually resumes, we advise anyone who needs it to reach out to us about dental implants in Golders Green.
Living everyday life with one or multiple missing teeth can present several challenges and obstacles - both on a social and dental level.
Thankfully, by seeking out dental implants in Golders Green, it is now possible to entirely restore a lost tooth on a structural and aesthetic basis, which can have a massively positive effect on a patient both inwardly and outwardly.
What are dental implants in Golders Green?
Despite having been around for some time, many people are still unaware of what dental implants are or how we could use them to brighten their oral futures.
Unlike other treatments for lost teeth, like bridges or crowns, dental implants do not sit on the patient's gumline or address the missing space at a cosmetic level.
Instead, it is surgically embedded within the bone tissue of the patient's jaw. That way, it merges in their jawbone similarly to how a natural tooth is fixed.
This means that it can be used with all of the integrity and strength that a patient would exert if they had an entire set of healthy, natural teeth. This also means they can eat whatever foods they wish and still have an indistinguishable and whole smile.
What does getting dental implants involve?
If you are missing a tooth - or more multiple - and would like to find out your dental implant options, it all starts with a consultation.
This lets our dental practitioners get a firm understanding of your current dental condition and the degrees of treatment that you’ll need. It also allows them to identify if any gum problems such as periodontal disease will impact the success of the treatment.
Following this, providing the patient is fit and willing, treatment typically goes as follows:
1. Firstly a hole is surgically made into the patient’s jawbone where they are missing the tooth. Into this hole, the implant specialist places a titanium-alloy socket - before sealing the hole.
2. Then follows a brief healing period in which the titanium-alloy within the socket and the patient’s jaw tissue merge together. During this time our expert dental implant engineers craft a denture that is identical to the patient’s surrounding teeth.
3. Finally, the socket is then used as an anchor point to which this denture is attached. As it is fused in a way that is practically identical to a natural tooth, it will not just look like a real tooth but will feel the same too.
