Dental implants are a natural-looking and long-lasting solution for those wishing to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Implants can support dentures and bridges as well as crowns. Dental implants look, feel and work like the real thing, allowing you to smile, speak and eat with confidence.
At Danson Park Dental Practice our in house specialist will be able to discuss your needs and best treatment options as a solution to your problem.

An implant is an artificial root made from ultra-pure titanium that replaces the root of a missing tooth. It can be placed in either the upper or lower jaw and, in time, will bond with your jawbone to create a firm foundation to which a replacement false tooth, bridge or denture is fixed.
Tooth implants can be used for a wide range of treatment from one implant to replace one missing tooth, two implants to secure a loose denture, through to multiple implants to replace all the teeth in the mouth.
Yes, if you are over 18 and in reasonably good health. The main limitation is the amount of bone available. Our thorough assessment will determine whether dental implants are the right option for you.
When teeth are lost the bone that held them in your jaw will shrink. Placement of dental implants can preserve this bone, maintaining the shape and structure of the lips and cheeks preventing the ageing 'caved in' look of older people with dentures.
Each case is assessed individually but the cost of a single tooth retained crown with implants is £2,400. If multiple dental implants are required then we will provide you with a price for the necessary work to be carried out. At Danson Park Dental Practice in Bexleyheath we offer 0% finance to allow the cost of the treatment to be spread into more manageable payments.
As with everything, you get what you pay for - and when it comes to dental implants, it's advisable to invest in the best surgeon you can afford. Our implant expert is Dr Forouzan Pessian, our principal dentist. She has many years' experience of placing dental implants and has successfully carried out hundreds of dental implant procedures. We only use the best materials and favour dental implants from Astra, a well-known brand that is trusted the world over.
The pain and slight swelling following the surgery is something you would expect after a minor surgery whether it is in your mouth, leg or anywhere else in your body. During the procedure there will be no pain and if you feel anything, more local anaesthetic is administered.
Dental implant treatment usually takes 6 months from start to finish. The length of treatment will be shorter if the implants are loaded immediately, which means that we attach temporary implants straight after the first surgery.
