How To Choose The Right Dentist For Dental Implants In London
Getting dental implants in London is a big decision and one you shouldn’t rush or take lightly. It pays to do your research, and ensure the dental practice you choose is reputable and experienced in tooth implants. In this blog, the team at Crescent Lodge, your London dental practice, talk you through choosing a dentist for your dental implants.
Tooth implants in short
Before we begin, we’ll outline what tooth implants are. These realistic false teeth replace missing teeth – whether individual, multiple or both sets. Treatment involves a consultation, followed by a small incision in the gum to allow the tooth implant to be inserted. After a period of healing, a crown is then secured to complete the tooth.
Things to consider
There are probably lots of questions you’re thinking about, as you’ll want to be sure that you’re investing time and money in a treatment that gives you pleasing, lasting results. Here, we’ll cover a few questions – and answers – to give you peace of mind.
What qualifications should my dentist have?
Your dentist needs to have training in dental implants. Our Implantologist, Andreas Jahnigen, has a Diploma in Implantology, a master’s in Oral Implantology and a master’s in Oral Implantology and Periodontology. He even studied at the prestigious German Association of Implantology (DGI, Germany). He has since co-founded a Dental Implant clinic.
How much experience do they need?
With dental implants, it’s a case of the more, the better. Our Implantologist, Andreas, has always had an interest in aesthetics and dentistry. He even observed his father – also an Implantologist – at work. He received a degree in dentistry in 2001 and has worked in the field for 20 years.
How do I be sure I’ll feel comfortable with the treatment?
Andreas is known for his professional yet personal approach. He has successfully treated countless implant patients, and will always take the time to explain the process to ensure his patients are comfortable and happy to go ahead. Finally, he’ll talk to you about any necessary aftercare to ensure side effects or risks are kept to a minimum.
What’s my next step?
Get in touch, and we’ll arrange a consultation for dental implants at our London dental practice. We’ll assess your smile, talk to you about the implant treatment in more detail and take any scans or moulds needed to craft your very own dental implants.
