How to find the best implant dentist in London

If you have one or several teeth missing, dental implants can help to restore your confidence, improve your ability to chew and give you a smile to be proud of. Dental implants can also help stop the potential facial distortion which tooth loss can cause. To look your best, you deserve the best treatment, but where do you begin to look for it? To help you we’ve put together a few useful questions you may want to ask when looking for the best implant dentist in London.

What credentials and qualifications to look out for?

It may seem obvious, but one thing to consider when looking for the best implant dentist in London is their qualifications. Many dental professionals place dental implants after attending just one weekend course or a slightly longer training schedule. There are more prestigious training qualifications dentists can gain, so be sure to find out what qualifications they have and what reputable industry bodies they belong to and are associated with. Find out the names and dates of dental implant courses they have carried out as well as any industry bodies they are associated or registered with.

Our implant surgeons are some of the most qualified and respected in the UK. Nikhil Sisodia is a past president of the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and lectures nationally and internationally on all aspects of implant and restorative dentistry. His partner in the practices Dr Martin Wanendeya is one of the few dental professionals to have completed a Faculty of General Dental Practice (FGDP) advanced level Implant Dentistry Diploma at the Royal College of Surgeons London. As well as placing dental implants in London, Martin now tutors and trains his fellow dental professionals in dental implantology at the RCS and is also a member of the Association of Dental Implantology and the British Dental Association.

How experienced and successful are they?

It goes without saying that the more experienced and higher success rate your implant dentist has, the more likely you are to receive the best quality of treatment. It is therefore a good idea to find out what their success rate is and how many dental implants they place annually.

According to the Association of Dental Implantology, the success rate of dental implants is high at about 95%, but if you’re looking for the best in London, look for a higher rate than that. Experienced implant dentists will place around 100 implants a year. The Ten implant Centre places around 450 implants every year and has a success rate of 98%.

Have they won any awards?

Ask staff at the practice you are considering using about any industry related awards they may have won. Often trophies and certificates will feature in a prominent place at award winning practices and are a good indication of how good they are.

Ten Implant Centre has been shortlisted for and won numerous awards including Aesthetic Dentistry Awards for a multiple, restorative, single tooth implants and full mouth rehabilitation as well as Best Patient Care for London at the 2015 Private Dentistry Awards.

What are the facilities like?

Where you are treated, the room, it’s atmosphere and layout can influence how you feel about a procedure. At Ten Dental our patients are at the heart of everything we do and we work with you at every stage to ensure you are relaxed and as comfortable as possible. We have won awards for the Best Patient Care and our state of the art, treatment centres, in Balham, Clapham and Wandsworth, London, are ultra-modern in terms of layout, décor and the technology we use during treatment.

What is their advice before and after treatment?

Dental implants are the only permanent solution to tooth loss, but post treatment care is vital to whether they are successful or not. The best implant dentists should be able to offer you support and advice before, during and after every stage of treatment. Once your treatment is complete you should maintain the highest standards of oral hygiene and care and visit your dental hygienist regularly. Ask if your dental implant dentist offers these regular checks including annual X-rays.

Ten Implant Centre has a clinical dental technician who works alongside us to give patients support and keep you informed and fully advised throughout every phase of your dental implant treatment.
