Dental implants in Kingston, Surrey
A dental implant is an artificial replacement for the root of a tooth. These are made from titanium, which has the unusual property of allowing bone to grow onto its surface. The strong attachment with the bone allows implants to support fixed or removable teeth.

I was referred to the Hampton Wick Dental Centre for periodontal gum disease which Lama Brown treated and saved my teeth. I needed an implant for a missing tooth. Lama explained everything clearly to me and made feel comfortable. The treatment that I have received at Lama Brown’s practice has been excellent. I cannot praise her enough.

I have been a patient of the Hampton Wick Dental Centre for many years and appreciate the smooth transition from one trusted dentist, Hilton Traub, to another – Lama Brown. Since Lama took over the practice in 2008 I have needed significant dental work, all of which has been carried out to the highest standards.

Having spent a lifetime avoiding dental professionals through a general concern about painful procedures, lack of individual care and feeling frequently uninformed about procedures, costs and after care, I came to you with a mouth full of problems and very low expectations. I’m delighted to say my experience with yourself and your practice has been entirely different.
FAQs About Dental Implants
What stages are involved in making a new tooth?
The dental implant is placed in the jaw bone through a small incision.
After a period of 2 to 3 months healing impressions and records are taken to fabricate the restoration to fit on top.
What components make up the implant restoration?
The implant is equivalent to the root of a tooth in the bone. The crown is the tooth part you see in the mouth. The abutment is the post, which connects the above.
What if I don’t have enough bone?
The gum and bone tend to shrink away once a tooth has been lost, however, new techniques and materials allow these tissues to be replaced.
What is the difference between mini implants and conventional implants?
Mini- implants are thinner and weaker than conventional implants and are particularly useful for stabilising loose dentures or making a temporary fixed restoration during more complex implant treatment.
