Dental Implants

Losing teeth can be a stessful experience with lifelong consequences. Loss of confidence and further dental complications are common after tooth loss. The idea of wearing dentures can also be off-putting. Dentistry today offers a modern, reliable solution to missing teeth – dental implants. Kent is home to Centre for Aesthetic Periodontics and Implantology Limited, where dental implants are routinely fitted to bring a smile back to our patients’ faces.

dental-implantsWhat are dental implants?

These small titanium screws act as artificial tooth roots. They sit in your jawbone and provide a stable base for the attachment of replacement teeth. Unlike dentures they won’t slip out of place when you eat or chew. Once your treatment is complete, your dental implants will provide you with a natural look and feel. For dental implants in Kent you need look no further than Centre for Aesthetic Periodontics and Implantology Limited.

What you can expect from your implant treatment with us

Following a thorough examination of your teeth, gums and mouth, we will present you with a comprehensive treatment plan. This includes precise planning of where your dental implants will be placed. Our Specialist Prosthodontist, who is specifically trained in dealing with dental implant procedures, will place your dental implants. This will be carried out under local anesthetic or for more nervous patients, sedation. Either way the procedure will be pain-free and we will strive to ensure you feel relaxed and comfortable.

After 8 to 12 weeks of healing, your implants will fully integrate into your jawbone. Dental implants actually encourage new bone growth so you can be assured that they will be firmly set in place. Over the next two to three weeks your replacement teeth will be custom made and fitted. With good dental care your implants will last for many years to come.

Enjoy the lifelong benefits

Dental implants in Kent don’t just address the immediate cosmetic impact of tooth loss. They also prevent bone degeneration and receding gums around the site of tooth loss. These conditions are common following tooth loss and denture use alone cannot prevent them. Take advantage of advances in dental technology and call or email us today. We are waiting to answer your dental implant questions.


If you have lost one or more teeth in an accident or playing sports, you could be as young as in your 20s and looking at decades of wearing removable false teeth.

Four or five decades of false teeth that have to be taken out and cleaned and that might start moving around in your mouth just when you least need it, is a grim prospect for anyone. However, with dental implants in Kent, at Centre for Aesthetic Periodontics and Implantology, it doesn’t have to be that way. You can, in fact, more or less pretend that the accident or sporting injury never happened, and carry on living just as you were before.

dental-implants-in-kentIn Kent, dental implants have the edge on removable false teeth in terms of stability and freedom. This is because they are anchored firmly into the jawbone instead of resting on the gums, or attached to neighbouring teeth (which have to be ground down in order to receive a bridge).

Dental implants replace the root of the tooth as well as the crown. The implant itself is a tiny screw made from titanium, which our dentist will insert into a specially drilled channel in the jawbone. Once in place, it is left to heal for several weeks, during which time the special properties of titanium catalyse the bone tissue into growing and fusing with the metal, in a process called osseointegration.

Once the screws have fused with the bone, and are being held as securely as natural teeth, you are ready to have your artificial teeth fitted. These days, artificial teeth are made from incredibly hard-wearing porcelain. This is colour-matched to your remaining teeth, and our technicians use their artistry to match the shape of the tooth to those surrounding it, so that in both colour and shape it will be very difficult to tell what is natural and what is dental implant.

Not only that, but in Kent, dental implants can last for decades. They have a very low failure rate, less than 5%. You will be able to carry on with life, as any normal young person does, without worrying that your artificial teeth will let you down.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant is a titanium screw, placed directly into your jaw bone. It needs a certain period to heal and bond to your jaw bone. This healing process is called osseointegration. It can take anywhere from 2-6 months. After this time, an implant crown or bridge can be added, leaving you with natural looking teeth.


Losing one or more teeth can have a great impact on your life and it can feel pretty grim when faced with possibly several decades of hassle, discomfort and embarrassment that can be associated with some solutions to missing teeth.

If you wish you could replace those missing teeth, then dental implants in Kent could be the answer for you.

In the meantime, here’s some more information about dental implants to help you begin your decision-making process:

In Kent, dental implants are tiny titanium posts that are screwed into the jaw bone where the root of the missing tooth used to be. This is a surgical procedure, and afterwards, as the bone heals the new bone tissue actually meshes with the new dental implant, holding it securely in place, just as it would a natural tooth root.

Once the dental implants have healed, which takes several weeks, artificial teeth, custom-made to match the shape, size and colour of your own natural teeth, are screwed onto the posts.

Once in place, dental implants in Kent behave just like the natural teeth they have replaced. This means that you can eat, drink, brush and floss as normal. And, the good news is that dental implants very rarely fail, which means they can last for years. You may even completely forget that these teeth are not your own.

Dental implants in Kent can be used to replace one, several or all of your natural teeth, and no one but you will be any the wiser.


Have you lost some teeth or are you on the way to losing some? Dentures and bridges are not the only solution to your problem. At the Centre for Aesthetic Periodontics and Implantology Limited in Kent, dental implants offer a reliable, long-lasting solution to missing teeth. Dental implants are small titanium screws that integrate into the jawbone and encourage the surrounding bone to grow. The result is a secure base for replacement teeth to be added – no more need to deal with the irritation or worry of dentures that may slip out of place. Dental implants in Kent use today’s dental technology to provide a more permanent and comfortable solution to tooth loss.

dental-implants-in-kentDealing with tooth loss: why you should act now

While losing teeth provides some initial discomfort, unfortunately the consequences do not end there. The gaps created by missing teeth can lead to surrounding bone degenerating. Dental implants in Kent, provided by the Centre for Aesthetic Periodontics and Implantology Ltd, are here to ensure that maintaining your dental health is that much easier.

What’s involved in placing a dental implant?

At Centre for Aesthetic Periodontics and Implantology Ltd, we provide consultations with our highly skilled team to get to the root of your dental implant needs. Placing of our dental implants is carried out in the dental chair in a safe and sterile environment. Local anaesthetic is used as standard however if you are especially anxious, sedation is also available. After placement, the implant site is allowed to heal for eight to twelve weeks, after which our patients are fitted with natural looking replacement teeth. With good dental hygiene, these dental implants will last for years to come.

As a child, I remember my Grandma tricking me by magically wiggling and moving her teeth! I spent hours trying to work it out, they were of course dentures. However, although entertaining for me I’m sure those loose teeth probably caused her problems whilst eating her favourite foods. So, if you have missing teeth what can you do to avoid this? There are several solutions available to you, one permanent solution would be dental implants. Kent-based dental clinic, Centre for Aesthetic Periodontics and Implantology (CAPI) can offer you a range of solutions including dental implants.

dental-implants-KentWhat are dental implants?

Dental implants are titanium screws that are placed in the jawbone, a crown or denture will then be fixed onto the screw. Over time tiny blood vessels integrate the screw into the jawbone.

In addition to the high functionality of dental implants they also promote overall jaw health. Since the implant encourages growth of the jawbone your jawline remains as it would with your natural teeth. This avoids the ‘sunken’ mouth that happens when teeth are lost and not replaced. Since the crown or denture will be matched to the colour of your natural teeth, your smile will never be compromised and no one will be able to tell the difference.

So why choose CAPI for dental implants in Kent?

CAPI have a specialist team dedicated to bringing you the best solution, fit and style for your dental implants. Dr Pedja Pavlovic, is the resident Specialist Periodontist who will place the implant. Whilst your dental implants will be restored by Specialist Prosthodontist, Dr Guy Stephens.

Your dentist can refer you to the clinic to take advantage of the highly skilled team, guaranteeing you are in very safe hands by choosing to have your dental implants in Kent.

You won’t be entertaining children with your movable teeth anytime soon, but you will be enjoying the relaxation of eating, drinking and smiling with confidence.

What are dental implants?

The ‘implant’ element is made of a small titanium screw which is carefully placed into the jaw bone in order to support crowns, dentures or bridges. Their functionality is the same as a natural tooth, and through a natural process called osseointegration, the body’s natural bone tissue fuses with the new root to create a strong bond. The new implants promote and sustain bone growth, helping to prevent any problems with future bone loss (often associated with missing teeth).

At Centre for Aesthetic Periodontics and Implantology, your dental implants will be placed by the highly experienced Dr Pavlovic, and the replacement teeth will be restored by Dr Guy Stephens.

Is it painful?

The procedure is not painful. In Kent, dental implants are fitted for most people under local anaesthetic. However, we understand that dental treatment can make some people very nervous so we also offer conscious sedation. It is rare for there to be post-operative pain.

dental-implants-kentDental implants in Kent have been popular for many years and are becoming ever increasingly popular as they allow patients to chew, speak, and smile with no problems or unsightly embarrassments. Dental implants are a replacement for the root of the tooth and are placed into the jawbone. There are several advantages to having implants, including the obvious confidence boost and compliments you get from having a beautiful set of teeth!

The advantages of dental implants include:

  • They look better. Dental implants look and feel like your own teeth, and once they are in, only you will know about them! The way they are designed to fit directly into your jaw bone means they are a permanent feature and you will not have to take them out – simply take care of them like you do real teeth.
  • Improved speech. Bye-bye lisp, bye-bye whistling when you speak. Your new dental implants will improve any problems that arose due to a lack of teeth. Dental implants in Kent will be carried out by qualified dentists who are skilled in the procedure, you will soon be able to speak and laugh with confidence.
  • More comfortable. Discomfort and irritation that is usually associated with dentures will simply not happen with dental implants because they become part of you completely.
  • Easier to eat and drink. Because dental implants act in the same way as your own teeth, they allow you to eat with confidence and without any discomfort or awkwardness.
  • Improved confidence. Nothing says happy and confident like a beaming, wide smile. Dental implants will give you the confidence to smile and not hide your mouth ashamed of what people may see.

Over the last thirty years or so, dental implants in Kent have gained rapid popularity as people seek professional help with their smile. Made from titanium, the implants are strong and durable, lightweight, and bio compatible. At Centre for Aesthetic Periodontics and Implantology we will also ensure that the implants match the natural colour of your teeth so that they blend in as much as possible.
