Fixed dental implants to replace missing teeth
We have been at the forefront of implant dentistry for the last 25 years with our expertise and cutting edge treatments. We can quickly and usually easily, replace your missing single tooth, or a whole arch of missing teeth to give you fixed, natural-looking teeth, and the confidence to smile broadly and eat what you want.
Our patients will often tell us that treatment has been life-changing and has made a huge difference to their ability to socialise, their self-confidence, their self-esteem, their appearance and generally to their quality of life.
Recent technological advances make dental implant treatment much more straightforward even when there is little remaining jaw bone - or no jaw bone at all, for a single tooth, several teeth, or all your teeth!
Dental implants used to be thought of as a 'last resort' treatment for people who could not get on with their dentures. We see it differently; for most of our patients we would now consider dental implants to be the 'standard of care' approach to replacing missing teeth, for nearly any situation ( and we will let you know if we feel that there is a more suitable or lower cost alternative, eg. a dental bridge or overdenture).
Although dental implants are anchored into the jaw bone, we are even able to provide patients with implant treatments when there is very little jaw structure available because of previous infection, long standing use of dentures, cancer or trauma; we provide implants in some truly exceptional circumstances. Our experience of challenging treatments and our use of technology is very much to the benefit of our day to day patients requiring much more straightforward dental implant treatments.
We continually develop new techniques, new implants and new treatment concepts for the benefit of all our patients
We use the Nobelbiocare dental implant systems, and hold an extensive stock of their components to enable us to provide the precise implant for your own very individual needs. We feel that this system is the most established world-wide, backed by a great deal of research; the company is highly responsive to our patients' needs and requirements. We do not use low cost, low quality substitute 'cloned' systems, which can lead to complications and failure later on.
Providing implant treatments requires a great deal of long-term commitment; investing in the best surgical facilities, the most highly developed implant systems, the latest imaging, manufacturing, and dental laboratory technologies, and the most highly trained clinicians and staff who all deal with implants on a daily basis . To avoid problems later on, there is also a commitment from our patients, to keep their teeth and mouths healthy; we will help with the best possible maintenance support from our hygienists and therapists, and regular review.
