Dental implants are by no means cheap, but they are the best solution for missing teeth. For all practical purposes, they work exactly as your original tooth did, and in some cases are even better because they may not take the same damage as a natural tooth.
A dental implant is a post made of titanium that is inserted into the jawbone like the root of the tooth. Then a replacement tooth is mounted on top of the post. This is a huge improvement over a bridge, as the teeth on either side of the implant are left untouched, while they have to be cut along the bridge to support the bridge, so you may actually damage two perfectly good teeth deliver.

The process of getting dental implants takes several months. First, the dental surgeon will need to take X-rays and molds of the jaw and teeth to find out the amount of bone, gum tissue, and space available for the implant. Then the implant itself, which is like a screw, is inserted into the jawbone.
After this, there is a period of up to six months during which the jaw grows firmly to the implant in a process known as osseointegration. Depending on the type of implant, a second surgery may be needed to attach the crown to the post that holds the implant. In this case, the gum tissue around the post should be allowed to heal. With other types of implants, the post and anchor are already attached to each other.
Once everything is in place, the dentist will have created the crown that will have a shape, size, and color that will blend in with your other teeth and it's time to attach it to the post.
If you are planning to have teeth whitening, you will need to get it done before getting dental implants in Holborn as the color of the finished crown should match that of your other teeth.
All four teeth are more comfortable than traditional dentures and certainly more stable. They virtually stop the degeneration of the jaw bone and the integrity of the facial structures is maintained. The natural biting and chewing abilities are restored, and the roof of the mouth is not covered, so food can be tasted normally.
