Having gaps in your teeth can affect both your oral health and your self-esteem, which is why we may recommend dental implants to you. They can be a long-term help for you by filling in the gaps with replacement teeth, which consist of the implant and a tooth-shaped crown, bridge or denture. Our dentist in Pinner will take good care of you throughout the treatment, and provide you with a high-quality service to help improve your smile. Our team is very knowledgeable and professional, and is sure to give you the results you are looking for.
How does it work?
We will start off by having a consultation appointment with you to determine whether dental implants are right for you. We will do this by discussing your needs, examining your teeth and taking scans. If we believe that the treatment is right for you we can then proceed with planning your surgical appointment.
In your surgical appointment, our dentist in Pinner will start by opening up the area where the gap is to expose the bone. They will then insert the implant post, which is the part which can hold your crown, bridge or denture securely in place. Once the implant post has been inserted into the bone, the area will be closed back up and left to heal for a few months. This healing process is very important, as it allows your bone to fuse to the implant which contributes to a strong foundation for your new tooth.
Once the area has healed, you will come back to us for a second surgical appointment, which is when we will attach your crown, denture or bridge. This is when you will really see the difference that our dental implants can make. Our dentist in Pinner will open up the area again to expose the implant post, and attach your dental appliance. Once this is done, you will be ready to go and live your life with your new teeth.

The most obvious and enjoyable advantage that you can get from dental implants is the improved appearance of your teeth. Having less or even no gaps in your teeth can really help to improve your confidence, as you will have a fuller smile that still looks natural.
Improved oral health
Dental implants won’t only improve the look of your teeth, but they encourage new bone to grow, which is hugely beneficial. When you have gaps in your teeth, this will contribute to bone depletion in that area, but once you have your implant in, the bone will grow and strengthen.
Doesn’t affect your other teeth
You won’t have to worry about putting your other teeth at risk when you have this treatment, as the implants won’t affect them. They will actually help to keep your other teeth stable due to the bone growth that is encouraged by the implants.
