All You Need to Know About Dental Implants

If you are missing your natural teeth, whether it be one tooth, a few, or a full set, you should know that there are options available to you, and you won’t need to carry on with missing teeth.

Missing teeth can cause a number of problems. Not only can a missing tooth make us feel self-conscious about our appearance, but it can also help with our ability to eat, speak and drink, as well as improving your oral health and offering a durable solution.

Depending on how well you look after them, dental implants can last a lifetime. With 0% finance available, a free consultation and long-term guarantees, dental implants have become a favoured choice for many patients.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small metal screws that are placed in the jaw so that dental crowns, dental bridges and dentures can be fixed onto them. 

As a titanium screw, dental implants replace the root of a tooth after tooth loss. Dental implants can also be made from zirconia, however, titanium is far more suitable and durable than titanium, which is why we only use titanium dental implants at Hermes London Dental Clinic.

After treatment, dental implants look and feel like your own teeth, and are the best solution for a permanent replacement for your missing teeth. Dental implants help to restore your self-esteem and can give you a new lease of life once again.

Fully fitted dental implants have the ability to restore both your aesthetics and comfort, while people with missing teeth will not be able to remember the last time they were able to eat without chewing on the opposite side of their mouth. 

How Long Do Dental Implants Take?

Dental implants typically take between 1-2 hours per implant. If you are having numerous dental implants fitted, then you will more than likely have to visit us during separate appointments to have your dental implants fitted.

If you are looking for an immediate solution to regain your smile without having to wait, then we would also recommend exploring same-day dental implants, which can restore your smile in just one day with reduced preparation time.

Wondering how long dental implants take to heal? As dental implants bond to the jawbone for a robust solution, they can take between six to 12 weeks to heal completely, but this doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy normal foods during this duration of time.

We do advise to avoid eating crunchy foods, for example, apples, carrots, ice cubes and crisps. Instead, you should try and eat soft food for at least the first few weeks, including jacket potatoes, soup, pasta and rice.

How Long Do Dental Implants Last?

Dental implants can last a lifetime, providing you take good care of them and treat them like they are real teeth, with ongoing maintenance and regular dental checkups, just as you would normally. 

While dental implants do not decay, they can develop plaque which can irritate and inflame the surrounding gum tissue, so it’s crucial to brush your dental implants twice a day and regularly floss.
