A guide to dental implants for permanent tooth replacement

Loosing teeth is always traumatic, but with dental implants you have the option to enjoy a second chance at a mouth full of healthy adult teeth. At Kent clinic the Centre for Aesthetic Periodontics and Implantology Limited (CAPI), we offer both simple and advanced implant treatments designed not just to restore an aesthetically appealing smile, but also to improve your quality of life.

dental-implants-kentAt CAPI Ltd in Kent, all of our dental implant surgery is carried out by Dr Pedja Pavlovic, a Specialist Periodontist (who provides advanced gum treatments, including treating complex periodontal diseases) with a special interest in Implantology. The implants are then restored (loaded with new teeth) by Specialist Prosthodontist Dr Guy Stephens. This means that, whatever your requirements may be, when you come to our Kent dental clinic you can be assured you will receive the very highest quality dental implants treatment, from your initial consultation to the final restoration of your new teeth.

CAPI Ltd accepts referrals for both simple and complex dental implant cases from Dentists across Kent and beyond. You can also refer yourself to our clinic, for example if your own Dentist has turned you down for implant treatment because you don’t have enough bone.

Bone loss

The jaw bone starts to shrink back when tooth roots are missing for any amount of time, and traditional dentures and dental bridges replace only the crown portions of lost teeth. Dental implants solve this problem because they are artificial titanium tooth roots, but even if bone loss has already occurred help is available from out Kent dental clinic.

Our skilled implantology team can perform a bone graft prior to placing your dental implants, which will rebuild the level of bone so that it is able to support dental implants.

How dental implants work

We place dental implants directly into your jaw bone under either local anaesthetic or conscious sedation here at our Kent dental clinic. Over the following few months the Dental Implants integrate with the bone, forming a very strong bond that is akin to that of natural tooth roots.

Once integration is complete, a permanent bridge, denture, or crown will be attached.
