Do you have missing teeth? If you have lost teeth or have a planned extraction, our dentists can replenish your smile and restore the gap left behind with dental implants in Forest Hill & Dulwich.
Dentistry with implants offers a clinically proven and safe solution to getting back a great smile and being able to bite and chew with confidence. If you happen to lose your natural teeth, your jaw bone and surrounding tissues start to resorb or disappear over time. When implants are placed in the jaw, it stimulates the remaining bone to grow and mesh around the metal, along with tiny blood vessels.
99% of patients can be treated even if their previous practitioner has told them they could do nothing more, or their only option is dentures.
London Dental Arts [Forest Hill Implant Clinic] offers a pain-free experience in all treatments, especially dental implants.
We are experts in dealing with nervous patients, complex cases, and ‘Teeth In A Day’ procedures.
We only use the most experienced implantologists and best implants available for your treatment.
Dental implants are small rod-like posts that act as a base for replacement teeth. They are placed into the jawbone and act like roots to support the tooth, denture, or bridge.
The dental implant screw fits into the bone and has a clip (abutment) that the tooth (crown) fits on. Titanium is the usual material that implants are made of; this is because Titanium has no ill effect on the human body and bonds readily with the new bone, which penetrates the titanium surface. The implants should last a lifetime if you look after them and maintain good oral hygiene.
Multiple tooth implants can be used to support exceptionally large bridges. Where multiple teeth are missing in the same location, two or more implants can be used to support a bridge, making it an economical long-term solution for replacing multiple missing teeth.
Who Can Have Multiple Tooth Implants?
The procedure of placing multiple implants in our Forest Hill Dental Implant Clinic should be suitable for most people, and age and gender are generally not a factor.
Implant Retained Dentures
For a cost-effective way of replacing many missing teeth, dentures can be held securely in place with implants, providing a significant improvement from traditional removable dentures.
- No need for denture adhesives, pastes, sticky gum, or powders.
- Implants help to maintain your facial structures by preserving the remaining bone in your jaws.
- Minimises wrinkles around the mouth by restoring lost lip-support
- Markedly improves your ability to chew – you can eat whatever you want and enjoy your food again.
- Secure and comfortable – no more embarrassing moments caused by loose dentures!
A lower denture may only need two conventional implants to give a completely life-changing transformation to your ability to chew foods and smile with confidence.
Teeth In A Day
The All-on-6 dental implant technique is a revolutionary procedure allowing patients to attend the surgery in the morning and leave with a fully fixed temporary set of teeth in the afternoon!
The All-on-6 concept was developed to enable the dental implant dentist to minimise the number of implants required to restore an entire arch (Jaw) of teeth and allow the temporary restoration to be fitted to the implants on the same day. Traditional implant techniques require 6-12 implants (which costs significantly more) to restore a jaw and a period of extended healing time where the bridge cannot be fixed.
The scientific idea behind the All-on-6 implant technique is that the two front implants are placed straight into the front of the jawbone parallel to the previously existing teeth while the other two implants are placed at the back of the jaw are angled at about 30 to 45 degrees in the bone compared to original root positions. This method enables the implants to provide firm overall support and evenly spreads the chewing forces transmitted from the denture or bridge to the jawbone.

- Eat, laugh and smile with confidence again
How it All Works?
The implants we provide are placed within the bone, making them structurally identical to your natural teeth. This can protect the bone, maintain tooth alignment, help with chewing and avoid facial changes. Dental implants are the best-known treatment to replace single or multiple missing teeth because they feel and behave just like natural teeth. You won’t be able to tell the difference, and after a while, you’ll likely forget they’re even there.
The implants we use are made from titanium, the most widely used material in implant dentistry. Our implants are clinically proven by some of the most in-depth research in dentistry.
How Do I Care For The Dental Implants And New Teeth?
Implant-supported teeth need the same level of care as your natural teeth, although flossing is different. As with your natural teeth, you will need to visit us regularly for review and maintenance.
How Painful Is The Dental Procedure?
This procedure, as with any other surgical procedure, has some discomfort. However, most implant patients tell us that they were surprised at how minimal and short the duration of discomfort was.
Can I Replace My Dentures With Implants?
Yes, you can, and it may well change your life. When you have dental implants, you avoid the pain and embarrassment of dentures.
- Your teeth won’t slip or fall out
- You don’t need to avoid any activities
- You can usually eat what you want
- There are no clasps or clips to hold them in place
Are Implants Suitable For Everyone?
Anyone who has lost a tooth, several teeth, or even all teeth is suitable for dental implants. There are very few situations where implants are not appropriate. We assess your suitability before undergoing any treatment.
