Dental Implants

dental implants romford


Dental implants have been around for a very long time and have become the gold standard for replacing missing teeth.

Over the past decade they have become extremely popular for restoring missing teeth as they do not require any cutting of natural teeth and also preserve bone.

Dental implants can often be placed at the same time as teeth removal.

They also reduce bone loss associated with losing teeth preventing the collapse of the lips and soft tissues.

Implants can be used to replace single, multiple or a whole jaw of teeth.

They can also be used to stabilise dentures by giving them something to connect to.

Implants are generally regarded as the longest lasting dental treatment and widely used in mainstream dental practices nationwide.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is an artificial root to which an artificial tooth can be attached.

A dental implant is made up of three components,

The Fixture

The fixture is the bottom of the implant and is the part that is physically embedded below the gum line, which then combines with the surrounding bone.

The Abutment

The abutment is the small portion that lies right around the gum line – the piece that allows a new tooth to connect to the fixture.

The Prosthesis

The prosthesis is the crown, bridge or denture that the implant supports and will resemble a natural tooth/teeth. These may be cemented or screwed into place.

Implants are extremely strong and can last as long as natural teeth if brushed and flossed the same way as normal teeth would be treated.



Multiple implants.

Dental implants can be used to replace one or several missing teeth.

All routine forms of tooth replacement such as bridges or dentures can be supported by dental implants.

Who is suitable for dental implants?

Dental implants are suitable for most healthy adults whose jaw has stopped growing.

Some dentists may decline to place implants for patients who smoke excessively or heavily drink alcohol as those habits may impact negatively on the health of the gum and bone surrounding each implant.


Implant placement

Implant placement is a minor surgical procedure performed under sterile conditions in the dental surgery under local anaesthesia. Once placed, the implant will be left to heal for approximately three months before the artificial tooth/teeth are placed.
If an implant is replacing a front tooth, a temporary denture is often worn throughout the implant integration process. This procedure may also apply for multiple implants where a removable over denture or same day fixed teeth will be provided.


Following implant treatment

Annual reviews are carried out to make sure the implant is and remains in good condition.


dental implants romford testimonials

★★★★★ Simply the best, very friendly and welcoming cannot praise this practice enough, I had an implant several years ago and am so pleased with it, would highly recommend an implant to anyone.

Sue Couchman

★★★★★ I had a Dental implant last year performed by Dr Alex Tahalani. Although initially nervous, the thing I liked about Dr Alex was the way that he listened to my concerns so that when we discussed options we could find the right path for me. The work was very skilfully performed as you might expect and a year later I am very happy with my new implant and looking forward to many years of chewing! I thoroughly recommend this service.

Dan Shilling

★★★★★ If you’re thinking of having an implant then this is the place to go. Ask for Alex, he’s an expert in this field. I have had several implants and all have been very successful. He explains things every step of the way putting you at ease. His attentive dental nurses also make the experience a ‘No hassle scenario’. Overall five star recommendation.


★★★★★ I just wanted to thank Gidea Park dental team in particularly Alex for his professionalism and fantastic service. I was hesitant to get implants done as I’ve had bad experience with another local dental surgeon. I decided to try Gidea Park dental practice and they have been amazing, I am extremely pleased with the outcome of my implants.  Alex was genuine he explained the process and was not pushy and double checked at each stage everything was going to order.  They also fitted me in for an emergency appointment; the reception team were accommodating and prompt in their service. I would highly recommend Gidea Park Dental Practice, brilliant staff and I will continue my dental treatments here. Finally found a perfect dentist.
