Dental Implants

Harley Street Dentist

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are permanent replacement for missing or failing teeth. We have treated thousands of patients with dental implants from Mayfair, Marylebone, Fitzrovia and throughout London. 

If you have single missing tooth or several missing teeth or perhaps if you have teeth that are in poor condition, you might find that you lack confidence to smile. Dental implants will replace gaps and teeth in bad condition allowing you to eat, speak, smile and live your life as usual.  

What are the dental implant treatments available in Harley Street?

At Rod McNeil and Associates in Harley Street, London, we offer several dental  implants treatments that will change how your teeth look.

Failed Implants

Failed Implants

Dental implants are a permanent, secure and natural looking replacement for missing teeth. Dental implant surgery has a high rate of success but an estimated 5 to 10% of dental implants fail either immediately after the dental implant surgery or later. 
Loose Denture / Stabilisation

Loose Denture / Stabilisation

Dentures should fit comfortably on the gum. It is common for dentures to become loose and not fit as well as they did but this means they may become painful and cause embarrassment affecting your speech and eating.

What is the process for dental implants?

At Rod McNeil and Associates in Harley Streetthere are 5 steps in the process for dental implants: 

Initial consultation 

At your first meeting, we will examine the health of your teeth, mouth and gums. We will also take X-rays, photos and possibly scans of your teeth. We will talk through the process for dental implants, what is involved and whether you are a likely candidate for dental implants. 

Dental implant surgery 

At the dental practice in Harley Street, London, you will be made comfortable before given a local anaesthetic so that your mouth is numb. If you have a tooth or several teeth which need to be removed, they will be gently extracted at this point. 

Next, the titanium metal rod will be gently placed into your jawbone and then the abutment and crown will be fitted. You may well be fitted with a temporary crown at this stage. If so, your permanent crown will be custom-made for you and fitted at a later date.  

You will leave the dental surgery in Harley Street once the surgery is finished with no gaps and a new replacement tooth. Many patients take a day or two to recover before resuming their usual routines and going back to work.  

Healing Period 

Your mouth and gums may feel a bit sore for the next couple of days, during which time we recommend you take paracetamol. 

The dental implant will take between 2 and 6 months to fuse with your jawbone. We will see you at the end of this period to ensure the dental implant surgery has been a success. 

Restoration is Fitted 

At the end of the official healing period, we examine your mouth, teeth and gums. You will be given your custom-made crown at this stage too. 


Keeping your teeth, gums and dental implant well looked after is essential for your oral health and to ensure the longevity of the dental implant. 

Ensure you brush and floss your teeth regularly along with making regular appointments for the dentist and hygienist. With good care, your dental implant can last a lifetime.
