Patients near Fulham ask, “Are dental implants safe?”

There are numerous options today for patients who are dealing with tooth loss and its subsequent impact on self-esteem, confidence, and the ability to eat and speak comfortably and effectively. Depending upon the severity of tooth loss, your Fulham dentist may recommend partial or full dentures; traditional, adhesive, fibre, or anterior bridges; or dental implants

At Gentle Dental Putney, our caring team of experienced doctors and dental professionals offer a complete range of oral health and dental care including family and children’s dentistry, sedation dentistry, orthodontics, cosmetic dentistry, and restorative dentistry such as crowns, bridges, dentures, and dental implants.

Dental implants are considered the ideal solution for safe and effective treatment of tooth loss because they replace the root of the tooth as well as the visible portion. A titanium rod is surgically implanted and fused into the jawbone for optimal stability. The artificial root strengthens the bone and supports surrounding teeth, eliminating the risk of shifting and bone loss. Once the implant has healed and bonded to the bone, an extension post, called an abutment is placed onto the implant and topped with a natural-looking porcelain crown.

Long lasting dental implants can replace one to several teeth. They may also be used in conjunction with fixed bridges and partial dentures, anchoring the prosthetics in place. For denture wearers, implants provide more security than traditional denture adhesives for maximum comfort and confidence.

The popularity and effectiveness of dental implants has continued to grow over the past several decades, with more than a 90 percent success rate.

Our team of six doctors at Gentle Dental Putney have a wide range of experience, specializing in advanced dentistry such as implant surgery. With convenient amenities such as 24 hour emergency service, online scheduling, free consultations, evening and weekend hours, and payment options such as interest-free credit, we are committed to providing safe, patient-centred care.
