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.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) - Emergency Service Information

WE ARE NOW OPEN MONDAY – FRIDAY helping our patients who are on our list and have waited during the lock-down for urgent treatment.

We hope to resume routine appointments in August.

Please don’t ring us to book check-up appointments at the moment.

Our dentists are keen to start providing routine check-ups and treatments but we are asking our patients to bear with us a little longer so that we can prioritise patients needing urgent treatment.

Our Standard Operating Procedures state that any surgery where an aerosol generated procedures (AGP) take place must be left empty for an hour and then thoroughly cleaned. We are also limited in the number of patients we can have in the practice at any one time.

Please do not call the surgery to make routine check-up appointments. Once we have cleared our urgent list of patients, we will contact those patients who had treatment booked with us and were cancelled due to the lock-down. Hopefully then we will get back on track in August, providing routine check-ups and treatment as normal, even if we may look a little different when you visit.




Out of hours emergency service covering evenings, weekends and bank holidays.

Many of our patients will be aware that we share an emergency out of hours’ dental emergency service covering evenings, weekends and bank holidays with two local dental surgeries. This service will continue as normal. The emergency service can be contacted on 077 6735 3759 and operates from 6pm - 9pm Monday to Friday and from 9am to 9pm at weekends and bank holidays.


If you are a Denplan registered patient, the cost of this service is included in your plan unless you specifically elected to opt out of the emergency out of hours cover. The choice to opt out will have only applied to patients who registered from August 2018. If in doubt, please check your registration paperwork or call 0800 401 402 to speak to one of their customer support team. If you have internet access, you can search Denplan for information through their patient portal. Before contacting the emergency service, please have your Denplan registration number to hand as you will be asked for it when you call. Please Note: patients registered with Gidea Park Dental Practice on Denplan Care will not incur any additional costs for Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Please be aware, although treatment and call out charges are covered under Denplan Care, PPE is not, so please check with the individual practice covering as to whether you may be asked to pay a (PPE) charge if you require emergency treatment.


If you are a pay-as-you go patient accessing this service, we may not be on call. It is important you are aware that individual practices set their own fees. We would urge you to check the fees with the dentist who may be arranging treatment for you.
