In recent years, implant dentistry has greatly evolved and apart from traditional dental implants, patients can now take advantage of new techniques and methods of tooth replacement with dental implants. If you are about to lose a tooth, then immediate loading dental implants may be the right option for you.
Immediate loading implants in London are dental implants that are specifically designed to have a crown or other restorations fitted soon after implant placement. This means your new teeth can be completed in just one trip to the dentist at Moor Park Dental. Immediate loading implants in London are safe, effective and are indicated for use in the majority of implant cases – however, not all of them. An adequate amount of bone tissue in the jawbone is important because bone deterioration can threaten the stability and lead to recession and implant failure.
Immediate Loading Dental Implants in LondonHow do immediate loading implants work?
Before this procedure was developed, patients with extracted teeth needed the extraction socket to heal before a dental implant could be positioned in the space provided. This healing process takes approximately 10-12 weeks, but thanks to advances in restorative dentistry, waiting until the extraction site heals is no longer necessary in certain cases. Dental bone is naturally destined to fill an extraction socket, so by placing the dental implant immediately after tooth extraction, the implant fuses with the bone and at the same time heals naturally.
Immediate loading dental implants in London can be placed and fitted with replacement teeth in just one appointment to the dentist. Depending on the type of treatment used and the condition of the patient, recovery of the jawbone can differ from patient to patient.
Benefits of immediate loading dental implants
Immediate loading dental implants have many benefits compared to traditional implants. Not only can they be placed immediately after extraction, but this treatment is less painful than the traditional dental implants. Moreover, immediate loading dental implants are less expensive than regular implants because there are fewer treatment stages. Last but not least, some types of immediate implants can be installed without the need for bone augmentation techniques.
