What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are an alternative to complex restorative treatment on your natural teeth, such as conventional bridges and dentures. Dental Implants are constructed of Titanium and each implant is placed directly into your jawbone. Dental implants are safe, non-toxic, and biocompatible, with your bone growing around the implant and osseointegrate to the fixture itself.
First provided over 30 years ago, dental implants have evolved to provide a treatment option that has a 95% success rate over the last 10 years. Now considered to be the number 1 option to replace a missing tooth, dental implants London treatment is the future of replacing any troublesome gaps between your teeth.
Placement of a Dental Implant
Why are Dental Implants used?
The use of dental implants London treatment and osseointegration has been well documented for the last 30 years. This treatment option has been backed by a multitude of scientific literature and clinical experience. Dental Implants London treatment can:
- Replace one or more teeth without affecting any adjacent teeth.
- Support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable denture.
- Provide support and retention for a denture.
- Preserve the bone to avoid that “caved in” look.
The exciting prospect for many patients undertaking dental implants London treatment is to finally discard their dentures or avoid them totally.
Dental Implants London Procedure
The initial consultation, assessment and planning will occur with one of our dentists here at Smile Cliniq. The options that are appropriate to your case will be thoroughly discussed with you, with preoperative pictures and your tooth shade may be taken. Impressions may also be taken to allow our ceramist to provide a diagnostic wax-up, which will physically allow you to visualise and approve the intended outcome. You may then require specialised imaging in the form of computerised tomography (CT scan). which will allow your Dentist to have a 3D reconstruction of your jaws, that will allow for better planning for the best outcome.
If there is an insufficient quality and quantity of bone to place your dental implant into, osseointegration will be compromised. As this is key to the success of having dental implants fitted, you may require a bone augmentation procedure that will allow your dental implant London treatment to have optimal results. Your dentist will also discuss all the eventualities and possibilities in the initial stages before your treatment.
The placement of a single dental implant is a relatively straight forward procedure and is routinely carried out under local anaesthetic, with many patients reporting that it is easier than having a tooth extracted. In the interim period, you may be provided with a provisional restoration of the highest calibre and aesthetics.
Many dental implant London treatments require a second stage, once osseointegration has occurred. Performed under local anaesthetic, the buried implant is uncovered, with impressions taken. These are then sent to our Smile Cliniq ceramist who will handcraft your aesthetic crown or bridge. Again, in the interim period, you may be provided with a provisional restoration.
At your next visit, the provisional restoration (if present) is carefully removed, and your custom-made crown or bridge is tried out. If you are happy with the fit and the appearance, your Dentist will cement or screw in the restoration to the implant.
There are hundreds of different dental implant systems currently in use, with only a handful of these dental implant systems having any substantial evidence in dental research literature to back their use. Even fewer dental implant systems have any substantial long-term follow-up evidence to support their use on patients also. Here at Smile Cliniq, we use high-quality dental implants from Biomet 3i and Implants Direct, so you can be assured of the materials we use.
There are many alternative cheaper types of implants available in the market, but as there is no long term research to back their results, we feel at Smile Cliniq it is not justifiable to provide them to our patients, even if they are cheaper for both us and our patients.
By having the best dental implants London treatment, using materials from one of the major dental implant companies, we can ensure that in years to come if your implant needs any maintenance such as a new screw or an abutment, the company will still be able to supply the parts needed.
Dental Implants London treatment at Smile Cliniq is performed by Dr Kaher, Dr McLellan and Dr Chasioti who are all certified with post-graduate training in the placement of implants. Together, they have the combined experience of placing thousands of dental implants. The procedure is performed in a surgically sterile environment where the surgery is disinfected and set out in a similar manner to a hospital environment, with clinicians also scrubbed up. This is important as it reduces ambient bacterial levels and hence reduces the chances of dental implant failure.
Please be aware, all dental implants London placements at Smile Cliniq are carried out under surgical conditions, and there is no extra charge for this.
Manufacturers of Dental Implants used at Smile Cliniq:
The Biomet 3i implant is the third largest dental implant company in the world, with an impressive amount of extensive research (over 100 scientific publications) carried out into producing the dental implant. The T3 & Osseotite® Dental Implant by Biomet 3i features their acid etched surface, which has been proven to encourage bone cells to grow around the implant. It also allows platform switching, producing much better soft tissue results once the final restoration has been placed. Nevertheless, both dental implants London systems have a proven high success rate.
Dental implants are made from titanium and are extremely strong. Once successfully placed, they should last for many years. Indeed, dental implants have now been in place and used in some patients for over 30 years. Titanium has been found to be biologically inert and is harmonious with the human body.

Recall and Review of your Dental Implants London
You will be invited to return to our practice a few weeks after provision of the definitive restoration to review your oral health status, the condition of the dental implant and restoration, as well as to gain feedback on the cosmetic result. A dental implant has the benefit of not suffering from dental decay, but it is still very important to employ a strict oral hygiene regime encompassing professional hygiene intervention.
You will be shown the most appropriate method to ensure optimal oral health. As with any dental intervention, regular recall and review are essential to ensure the status of your dental implant. Failure of dental implants can be due to peri-implantitis (inflammation of the tissues surrounding the dental implants), hence regular hygiene and assessment are required to ensure optimum health and durability of the dental implant.
Bone Graft/Sinus Lift – Dental Implants London
Starting from £800
In certain cases, when a dental implant is prescribed, it is necessary to build up bone in the dental implant site to ensure success. This is generically known as bone grafting and the techniques used by Smile Cliniq are well documented, with them being discussed with you from the initial consultation if required. Bone grafting allows your Dentist to increase the height and width of bone, and even fill voids. The bone we use is taken from other areas of your mouth or an artificial bone substitute is used.
There are Two Types of Bone We Supply:
Geistlich Bio-Oss® is a leading bone substitute for regenerative dentistry. The Bio-Oss® bone is made from the mineral part of bovine bone and its particles are incorporated over time within the living bone which provides long-term volume preservation.
An alternative artificial bone that we use is EthOss which is a also a leader in Bone Grafting Technology. EthOss® is an entirely synthetic material with a built-in membrane which removes the need for additional collagen membranes and produces an outstanding clinical result. It is currently being used by dental implantologists across the world.
In the posterior upper jaw, we have a maxillary sinus. When we have missing teeth in this area, the bone may be thin. When this occurs, there may not be enough bone for the dental implant to be placed. In this case, we may opt to lift the sinus up and place bone (either your own or artificial) underneath it and then put the implant onto this.
Your Dentist may inform you that a bone graft is not required, instead opting for a sinus lift in the upper jaw. The maxillary sinus is a hollow cavity designed to make your head lighter. As we age, our sinuses enlarge. If a dental implant was placed without appropriate planning, it would not have optimal bone support. A sinus lift procedure is designed to raise the floor of the sinus, thus allowing your dentist to place your dental implant into solid bone, not disturbing the sinus.
Smile Cliniq’s dentists always aim to provide the most aesthetically pleasing and functional restoration possible, whilst aiming to provide maximum longevity. If you require advanced dental implants London treatment, further planning and investigation will be needed. A CT scan may be required, which will allow your dentist to visualise your jaws in 3 dimensions.
The CT scan provides ultimate control over the planning and placement of dental implants. The scan will accurately allow the specific size, type, and angulation of the dental implant(s) to be planned before your procedure even takes place. A surgical stent may be manufactured from this 3D computerised model, which acts as a specific guide for placement of your dental implants, thus significantly reducing the possibility of operator error.
For those patients that suffer from dental anxiety,
we offer Conscious IV Sedation to help you feel more relaxed during treatment.
