A missing tooth isn’t the end of the world, but it can often feel that way. A gap in our smile can easily lead to a feeling of social discomfort, anxiety and even shame. It can also affect the way that you eat and speak. That is why here at Dental Solutions, we offer a long-term solution: individual dental implants.
A dental implant is a titanium screw that is placed directly in your jawbone, as it heals the bone and screw fuse together. A porcelain replacement tooth, usually a crown or bridge if replacing more than one tooth, is bonded to it after a short healing period. This produces an incredibly natural look for your smile.
At Dental Solutions Lymm we only use premium products from Nobel Biocare for your dental implants.
Not at all–none of our patients have reported any pain during their implant placement procedure. Generally, we tell our patients that if the missing tooth is already out then the hardest part to face is already behind them.
We only replace the missing tooth and we don’t touch the other teeth. Fitting a bridge to replace a missing tooth can have a detrimental impact on the surrounding teeth. An implant also helps to maintain the bone in that area of your jaw.
You need to allow one and a half hours for the treatment itself but in order to allow healing of the implant itself total treatment time from start to finish varies between 4 months and a year.
Yes of course, we have a range of payment options to suit you, including interest free credit over 10 months and interest bearing rates over 3-5 years. Our treatment facilitator Nicky can discuss all the different options with you.
It very much depends on the type of work you do and how physical it is, but usually you are back at work the day after treatment.
If your gap is visible when you smile, we make a temporary bridge or a small denture for you while your implant is healing.
Nothing to worry about, artificial bone comes out of a packet these days rather than your hip.
We are a strong experienced and highly trained team who have been working together for over 15 years. In this time we have placed many thousands of implants. We ensure that your post implant aftercare is as important to us as the treatment itself. You come to the practice as a patient and leave our practice as a friend – no one judges you here- you just join our team. But don’t just take our word for it, please read some of our reviews and testimonials from our patients. We also have a patient group who you can call if you have specific questions for someone who has had a similar treatment to the one you are about to embark on.
Just a chat – there are no procedures at your first consultation. We just sit and talk to you and get a better understanding of your situation. You have a choice – you can either meet with Gavin Laidlaw our Principal Dentist, or you can meet with our Implant Treatment Facilitator Niamh Collins who will be looking after you throughout the treatment process.
Yes you can. We have set up a patient group for this very purpose, and we can direct you to them if you have specific questions for someone who has had similar treatment to the one you are about to embark on.
With an implant procedure, there are a number of additional benefits for your smile that you should also be aware of. These include:-
Our dental implant team is headed and mentored by Richard Brookshaw. Richard has extensive experience in placing dental implants (over 5,000 so far) including complex cases where bone grafts and sinus lifts are needed. He also lectures on Implantology and mentors other dentists both here in the UK and internationally. We are able to offer initial consultations to assess your suitability for dental implants.
Richard is supported by Niamh Collins, our Implant Treatment Facilitator. Niamh is also highly experienced in dental implant nursing and she provides nursing support throughout your dental implant treatment. She is also there before and afterwards to answer any questions that you may have.
