Dental Implants in Sloane Square and Chelsea
Dental Implants are not new; Dr. Scher has been placing them successfully since 1986. They are combined with crown and bridge work or a denture to stabilise your dental arch and restore natural function and aesthetics.
A dental implant is a substitute for a natural tooth root placed in the jaw bone where a missing tooth used to be. When placing an implant, the main aim is to achieve close contact with the surrounding bone. This creates an initial stability, which is steadily enhanced by further growth of bone into the microscopic roughness on the implant surface over time. To replace missing teeth, dental implants have some form of internal screw thread or post space that allows various components to be fitted.
Once fitted, these components provide the foundation for long-term support of crowns, bridges or dentures.
Latest Developments in Dental Implantology – ‘Teeth-in-an-Hour ‘ FACT or FICTION:
It is now possible, using computer-guided surgery, to place implants accurately without cutting the gum (therefore no stitches needed) and in the same hour to fit the teeth directly onto the implants. This is the cutting-edge implant dentistry – pioneered at our practice.
