First-class. I had a dental implant fitted four years ago (Ope Sodeinde having been recommended by my dentist) and have been attending LDS regularly ever since for check-ups and hygiene sessions. The quality of the care has been terrific: highly professional and expert, with a warmth and sensitivity that inspires trust and confidence. I cannot recommend them more highly.

I was referred the LDS for a "re-root canal" treatment as a previous root canal had become infected. I am normally anxious about dental work but Dr Patel made me feel very comfortable; she kept me updated throughout and reassured me. The procedure took quite some time but I felt that Dr Patel was thorough and I left feeling confident that she had solved the issue. All other staff were very friendly and kind.

I have had outstanding dental care and surgical treatment from Dr Ope Sodeinde at the London Dental Specialists. The evaluation of the problem was very clear and thorough, as were the choices presented to me prior to surgery. The procedure was faultless, and my recovery swift.

Why was I so worried? Dr Sodeinde put me totally at ease from start to finish. My initial consultation was very comprehensive, Ope provide me with clear information on all my options, we even had a 2nd meeting to go over anything I wanted to cover at no extra cost - he was extremely professional. Great customer care. Great job!”

I remain a fan so don’t mind driving all the way up from Surrey each time to see you/your team.I take comfort in all your degrees / expertise. I recall a shameful dentist trying to get me to have a gum graft at c£7k. A second opinion with yours truly showed I had plenty of gum & deep roots despite recession c/o brushing too hard – super to have such an honest practioner protect those with such a concern.

By far, Dr. Ope gave me the best treatment I could have ever received for my recessive front gum and guided me throughout the whole process. I was very nervous of undergoing surgery, but Dr. Ope not only was able to give me all the reassurance I needed, the whole experience itself was even pleasant.Upmost professionalism along with a very human approach.The rest of the staff was extremely friendly and always made me feel welcomed and safe.Thank you very much.

I have been a client of London Dental specialist for about 5 years, I have never been disappointed on the treatment results , the Hygienists first Jane and now Stephanie have helped me to get my gum disease under control, I have tried other hygienist twice due to been unable to attend for an appointment on a week day, and I have very much regretted going somewhere else, I not only paid a higher price but have to have the job properly done later by London dental specialist. At LDE they have highly qualified doctors and do care about their customers, and the staff is always friendly and polite. keep the great customer service!

I was referred to London Dental specialists for a root canal treatment. I was really nervous before hand, but the staff and dentists made me feel at ease. They were so lovely! And the actual treatment was fine, the dentist would talk me through the procedure and let me know what was going on. I would highly recommend them! If I ever need another root canal treatment I wouldn’t hesitate to go back to them! Thanks so much everyone there!

I was referred to Ope and his team by my trusted dentist and although I was very anxious at the idea of having to have implants, I felt much more reassured after my initial consultation with Ope. Ope was a consumate professional, answering all my questions and concerns, he provided a fully comprehensive and considered treatment plan with several options to consider. All of which were explained in great detail, both in writing and during our follow up conference call shortly afterwards.I am now halfway through my implant treatment, having undergone an extraction and a bone graft, and I cannot recommend the practice more. I know I am in very good hands and I look forward to a positive, stress-free result with absolute confidence.

I saw Dr Ope for an initial exam and Dr Neha for a root canal which needed to be re-done. I found both to be very good at taking the time to answer questions and explain my options. The root canal was a complex one which another dentist had struggled with and left incomplete, but Dr Neha seems to have done a good job of sorting it out. The experience was comfortable and very professional.

I had root canal treatment and a dental implant at the end of 2019. I was feeling overwhelmed by the work that needed to be done and worried about what to do. The entire team were caring and extremely understanding of my anxiety. I really trust that my health and wellbeing are always at the centre of any treatment decisions. The procedures were carried out in a way that minimised my discomfort and the aftercare has been excellent. My subsequent hygiene appointments have been thorough - but also carried out in a way that made me much less nervous. Every member of staff is kind, patient and highly knowledgable. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the team and will continue to return for aftercare and any future procedures.

A friendly and professionally run practice. I visited over several months to have 2 implants at the back of my lower gum. The treatment involved bone and gum grafts but the end result was worth the time and money spent. For the first time in many years I am able to eat on both sides of my mouth . I'd previously had implants on the other side at a different practice, but the ones done at London Dental Specialists are a better fit and much more secure.

I was referred to Dr Ope by my dentist for placing a dental implant following the extraction of a cracked tooth. I am an anxious patient with a low tolerance for pain and a busy work/personal life. It was important for me to have a consultation with Dr Ope and understand the procedure, recovery timeline, provided support, and all the stages until full dental recovery (having a fully functioning replacement of a tooth). I was impressed by Dr Ope's professionalism and personal approach. He provided all the relevant information promptly, described all the costs, made himself available for questions and additional appointments during recovery. I had a dental implant and gum graft, which is not the most pleasant experience. So, it helped a lot to have a caring, positive and experienced surgeon. Dr Ope's practice provides a warranty for dental implants if you attend the hygienist appointments and maintain gum health. I have found that helpful.

I had a long period of the problem with my teeth. I had suffered caused nerve pain daily. I went to several dental practices and they told me that there was nothing they can do to help my teeth getting better. I have done some reach for a dental specialist and I glad I came to cross meet Ope and His entire team Jane, Anna, Katerina, Sophie, and lots more... Ope and I had long discussed with my teeth based on the condition of my affected teeth, why I should have a dental implant the treatment. His patient and care for details were phenomenal, It took about a year time to finish the treatment, the overall he and his entire team manner is exceptional; I have never encountered such a brilliant dentist that goes above and beyond at his job if I had known Dr. Ope before and I may save my natural teeth. I was completely happy with the result which I can be eating normally again. I also undertake hygiene treatment with Ope right now. If you are looking for a dentist who is excellent at his job and does the best he can to make you smile again, you need to look for Dr. Ope The London Dental Specialists.

I had an excellent experience with the team at the London Dental Specialist. Appointments were made to fit around my own working time. In my first appointment, I discussed with Dr. Ope, based on the condition of my affected tooth, why I should have dental implant as opposed to the root canal treatment (I really wanted to keep my natural tooth) I wanted. He took the time to see my reasons and I did his as he gave me good detailed facts only a good dental professional could. I respect that! The procedure was not traumatic and strict COVID-19 guidelines were followed during the procedures. The end result was fantastic - it does not even feel like my natural tooth was replaced with a dental implant. Thank you for the journey to getting me able to chew normally again.

I had a bad infection on my font teeth. Other dentists suggested me to do the dental extraction and implant. Dr Neha and Ope provide an alternative solution and saved my teeth. Rather than the extraction, they carefully operated a root canal. There is no pain except anesthesian injection at the very beginning of the operation and no pain afterwards.

After having previous dental work that needed correcting, with extensive work needed, I visited a few dental practices for different opinions. I decided to use London Dental Specialists. From the start, the whole team were extremely understanding, non-judgmental, patient and extremely knowledgable. All options were explained clearly and then I was given the opportunity to go away and think about it and had a courtesy follow up appointment to ask any questions or voice any concerns. I can honestly say, from the start I was made to feel like a patient and not an appointment.Treatment commenced in January, and after numerous appointments I will be coming to the end of treatment in a couple of months. I really don’t like the dentist but they have made me feel relaxed, reassured, and I now know that the team are absolute perfectionists and are passionate about what they do. Always going the extra mile. I’m confident any advice they give me really is in my best interest.I travel 1 and 1/2 hours for my appointment, with parking outside, and will continue to do so as I will never use another dentist. Very highly recommend.

This was my first specialist root canal treatment with Dr Neha Patel and I felt very reassured in her ability. She was incredibly meticulous with her work - retesting measurements and making sure everything was absolutely spot on, despite complications along the way (long and curved roots). She worked late into the night and although I had to hold my mouth open for 3 hours I was very impressed by her (and the Team’s) professionalism and it’s a credit to her desire to achieve the best result for her patients. Big thank you from Jordan.

May 2021 - London Dental Specialists have looked after my teeth for the last six years and I have always been really pleased with the professional care received from the practice's friendly team.Recently, I fractured one of my molar teeth which had an existing deep filling. This required root canal treatment (completed by Dr Neha Patel) and then the fitting of a crown, after complex work to reshape the tooth (completed by Dr Ope Sodeinde). The treatment process was excellent from start to finish, and Ope and Neha took great care to ensure I felt at ease throughout this. I am very happy with the end result and again have no hesitation in recommending London Dental Specialists.September 2020 - This was my first hygienist appointment at London Dental Specialists in the new world of enhanced PPE and Covid safety measures (I have been a patient of the practice for several years).Stephanie was excellent. As well as carefully cleaning and polishing my teeth, she gave me a number of very useful practical tips on my dental hygiene and brushing technique.I received a warm welcome from Ope and his team as always and felt very safe throughout my appointment.

LDS has treated me for the past 25years. With severely reduced upper gums (due to over zealous flossing) LDS fitted two upper molar dental implants. My upper incisors are glued together to provide a firm bite. For years I have enjoyed eating as though I had a full set of teeth and complete gums. Great.

I was referred to Ope in October 2020 while in a very difficult situation regarding dental implants. I had suffered serve nerve pain and was undergoing investigations to find out the root problem. His patient, attention to care and overall manner is exceptional; I have never encountered such a brilliant dentist that goes above and beyond his job. He swiftly made sure I had a CBCT scan completed and a radiographer report, and then referred me to a pain specialist very promptly. This all took place over the space of a week; I was completely amazed at how quickly Ope managed to deal with my problem. I was beyond satisfied with the treatment I received and the follow-up care. I will be undertaking further treatment with Ope in the future. If you are looking for a dentist who makes you comfortable, is excellent at his job and has a kind manner, I highly recommend The London Dental Specialists.

I came to the London Dental Specialists and was looked after by Dr Sodeinde. I had a pain in the jaw that the ear specialist suggested it was teeth related. Dr Sodeinde gave me some exercises to do after examining the jaw line and teeth. After three weeks the pain has gone. His service was first class and very kind. I highly recommend him. Liz Gee

DENTAL IMPLANTS LONDON

At our dental implant clinic in London we use dental implants to replace missing teeth. Dental implants are small titanium screws that are carefully and gently placed into your jaw bones. The jaw bone then grows into the screw threads locking the implant in place. The dental implant is then used to hold either a dental crown, dental bridge or dentures into place.

There are many reasons a patient might come to see us for dental implants:

  • unsightly gaps
  • loose and ill fitting dentures
  • teeth deteriorating and requiring extraction
  • loss of teeth following surgery or cancer treatment
  • loss of teeth after an accident, car or sports injury

Dental implants allow us to restore teeth to the closest we have to a natural dentition. They can help restore your confidence to allow you to socialise again, eat out in public, play sports and just smile.

Once placed, dental implants need to be maintained in the same way as your natural teeth with regular checks and we recommend regular visits to your dental hygienist for maintenance therapy.

If you wish to arrange an appointment with our specialist dentist at LDS dental implant clinic in London then please complete the call back form below, or call the practice on 020 7589 7792.

    london dental specialists team

    LONDON DENTAL IMPLANTS FAQ’s

    What are the benefits of dental implants?

    • Prevention of bone loss after tooth loss. This will preserve facial appearance in many patients.
    • No need to cut down adjacent teeth to support the new teeth filling the gap.
    • Dental implants are therefore, a non destructive dental procedure
    • Improved confidence in chewing: no more embarrassing moments with loose dentures, no more dental glue or soft liners. This could mean that you can, once again, eat those foods that you love but have been unable to eat.
    • Comfort: dental implants feel like your natural teeth.

    Will I have a gap in my smile whilst the implants are healing?

    In some cases, it may be possible to attach temporary teeth to the implants on the day of surgery. If this is too risky then we will provide an acceptable temporary replacement during the healing period so you don’t have a gap. The healing period takes 6-12 weeks in most cases. Healing may take longer in some specific cases. We will discuss this with you before we start treatment.

    What are the down sides of dental implant treatment?

    These are the same as normal dental surgery: bleeding, bruising, swelling, discomfort and infection. Any tendency for bruising or swelling is reduced by the use of ice pack after the procedure. Any discomfort is usually well controlled with mild pain killers such as Ibuprofen. Infection is extremely rare. Most patients are fine to go back to work, study, life within 1 – 3 days.

     

    Failure of the dental implant soon after it is placed is very rare (1%) assuming a premium-branded implant is used. Patients who are smokers and those with a history of gum disease are at a slightly increased risk of failure. We will design a personalised plan to minimise this risk.

    Do I need to take antibiotics?

    Generally no. In some cases e.g. bone grafting it is prudent to do so.

    Am I suitable for dental implants?

    In general, everyone is suitable for dental implants as long as you have stopped growing (>18 years old). There is no upper age limit. Some medical conditions e.g. bleeding disorders such as haemophilia make all surgery very difficult. As long as you have a stable medical history and are fit enough to keep your mouth open, dental implants are possible. We may need to increase the amount of bone present at the position the implant is to be placed. This can usually be done when the implant is placed or occasionally before placement.

    I have just been diagnosed with brittle bone disease (osteoporosis), can I have implants?

    It is important that you have a full, thorough dental assessment as one of the side effects of the drugs (bisphosphonates) that are used to treat this disease makes implant surgery risky. This is particularly true if you’ve been taking this drug for many years. We will make an assessment of this specific risk as part of the consultation.

    Are all dental implants the same?

    No they are not! There are over 500 different implant brands and they are all very different in their design. We have chosen brands with the most extensive published evidence for success. They are Neodent, Straumann, Astra, Biomet 3i. On the very rare occasions when things go wrong, the customer service of these companies is excellent. They (like us) are committed to putting things right.

     

    Here is an excellent video about dental implants from one of our preferred providers, Biomet 3i.

    Are dental implants painful?

    No they are not. They are usually placed after making the gums numb with a local anaesthetic. Most single tooth replacements can be done in 40-60minutes! If required, we can organise sedation or general anaesthesia. This isn’t necessary for the majority of patients.

    What does teeth-in-a-day mean?

    This is a procedure where teeth are extracted and a crown, bridge or denture is attached to the implant on the same day. This term is misleading as there would usually have been a number of appointments before surgery for impressions, x-rays and other preparatory procedures that allow for the placement of temporary teeth after surgery. We offer this type of treatment.

    Do implants last forever?

    Natural teeth need regular maintenance by with a hygienist and your general dentist. The same is true of dental implants. Our treatment plans will include information about your personalised maintenance needs. This will include brushing twice a day and cleaning with floss and interdental brushes. Most scientific studies show that the majority of implants are still functioning very well after 10-15 years of service. Assuming you strictly adhere to our maintenance regime, your implants should last at least this long

    Why should I have my implant placed by a periodontist?

    Periodontists are fully qualified dentists who have had further training in the diagnosis and treatment of problems around teeth and dental implants. We are also highly-skilled surgeons.  Periodontics is a sub speciality of Restorative dentistry so we also have advanced training in the planning and placement of implants and their final restoration with crowns or dentures.

    What should I expect at my first appointment?

    At your first appointment at London Dental Specialists Dr Ope Sodeinde will discuss with you in detail your particular concerns about your teeth and will carry out a thorough examination with appropriate x-rays, if necessary, in order to arrive at a full diagnosis.

    We will then discuss with you in detail, different treatment options and associated costs and the time commitments involved with different treatments. This discussion will be summarised and sent to you for your further consideration.

    How much do implants cost?

    Please see our Fees page for a guide to fees for dental implant treatments.
