Dental Implants

You are here:

A permanent replacement for missing teeth.
Get your smile back

Dental implants are one of the most effective ways of replacing missing or loose teeth. A medical-grade titanium implant is gently placed into the jawbone which helps to secure a dental crown or bridge. Dental implants can help replace single missing teeth, help to secure and stabilise dentures and also help to replace all your missing teeth by securing a full arch dental bridge. Implants look very natural and are a popular option for patients who want the best outcome, or patients who are looking for a permanent, natural tooth replacement option.

I saw Dr Shivani and she was very calming and extremely professional at all times, I can honestly say one of the best practitioners in oral health I've been seen by. I would highly recommend this Dental surgery to anyone wanting highly professional, PAIN FREE - excellent experience. Thank you so much x Leigh Shilton.

    review rating 5  Earlier this year, in March 2018 I went to Kam at Gentle Dental Care, very very much in pain. I had to have two back teeth extracted. I opted for sedation when having the teeth taken out. I chose to have these replaced with Implants once the extraction had healed. During this time I also had a crown put on another tooth. As a very nervous patient, I can honestly say from start to finish the whole process has been a breeze. I attended 5 visits in total and was sedated twice, once for the extraction and once for the initial implant procedure. Kam definitely lives up to his name of the most gentle dentist in Croydon and I can tell how much he cares about his patients and doing the very best for them. The whole team at the surgery are lovely, put me at ease and reassured me every step of the way. It has been painless in every sense of the word. A couple of weeks ago, I went for the last process of having the implant crowns fitted and they look amazing and I could not be happier. 😃 Thank you so much Kam and all your team. Pauline Lee

  • review rating 5  This dental practice has had a transformation since I visited a year ago for my regular check up and hygiene. The practice environment has had remodelling done making it look sleek and welcoming. Dr Anhaar continues to be the dentist there and as is always the case, her attention to detail is meticulous. I have had varied courses of treatments that started with a crown and a root canal to regular hygiene visits, and now my family and I continue to receive the care from her team. Hope you go from strength to strength and thank you for looking after our teeth.

  • review rating 4  I do not write reviews for the sake of it! But I've got to say that I received more info on dental care in that one half hour sitting, than at any other time in my life. The dentist was so passionate about her advice on preventative care; and a very holistic approach. The staff and general environment were very welcoming and comfortable throughout. The actual treatment was also of a high standard. Thanks guys!

What are dental implants and how are they used?

Dental implants are tiny titanium metal cylinders which are gently placed into your jawbone. Over a few months your jawbone bonds with the cylinder to form, in effect, a false tooth root.

Because implants use titanium anchors that are fused into the jawbone they provide steady support for artificial teeth, are more secure and look and feel like natural teeth. If you choose implants, you can eat and brush as if you still had your real teeth.

  • Single implants can be used to replace single missing teeth
  • Multiple gaps – implants can be linked together to replace multiple missing teeth. You don’t need an implant for every missing tooth
  • Teeth in a day – replace all your teeth in one day!
  • Implant-retained dentures – secure your loose dentures with just two dental implants

How do you decide whether implants are right for you?

The first step is to come in for a full examination so that we can assess the current condition of your mouth. Once this has been done we can explain all the different options available to you along with the pros and cons. Together, we can come to a conclusion on what the ideal treatment is for you. Each individual is unique. We can then write you a detailed, tailored letter which outlines the treatment plan to suit your needs and explains the treatment journey.

These are some of the most common reasons why patients choose dental implants:

  • They can last a lifetime when properly looked after
  • You can eat whatever you want
  • Stops your bone from shrinking away
  • They are fixed in place
  • Value for money as they last longer than any other option

Implants for nervous patients

We are experts in helping nervous patients gain a new smile, without pain or worry. Our dentists are highly trained and will make the experience comfortable for you in any way they can. If you are especially nervous about implants, we can offer you IV or oral sedation. Dentistry doesn’t have to be painful or stressful – just talk to us about your worries.

New teeth in just one day

Same-day teeth is a concept where all your teeth are taken out (if needed) and implants are then placed on the same day which secures a full set of fixed teeth. This is a specialist service that only a handful of dentists can provide. It’s perfect for busy patients or for people who don’t want to wait for a new smile.

Some other options to replace missing teeth

Implants are the most permanent option for replacing missing teeth, which is why many of our patients love them. However, if you don’t want to have surgery, there are other options you might want to consider. Crowns and bridges  can be used to restore heavily chipped or damaged teeth, and dentures can also be used as a removable tooth replacement option.

Contact the team at Gentle Dental Care to discuss dental implants further. We can help you improve your smile and feel confident in your appearance, with flexible consultations to suit everyone. Book in for a consultation and let’s see how we can be of assistance.
