Dental surgery - Dental Solutions

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.

What are 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.

The whole thought of Implants sounds horrible - Will it hurt?

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.

Why is an Implant better than a Bridge?

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.

How long does it take?

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.

Can I spread the cost?

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.

Do I need to book time off work?

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.

Will I have to live with a gap in my teeth during 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.

I'm worried, I've been told that I need more bone added to my jaw?

Nothing to worry about, artificial bone comes out of a packet these days rather than your hip.

Why should I choose Dental Solutions for my Implant treatment?

We are a strong experienced and highly trained team who have been working together for over 15 years. During 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 similar treatment to the one you are about to embark on.

What can I expect at my first appointment?

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 can meet with Gavin Laidlaw our Principal Dentist.

Can I talk to other Dental Solutions patients who have had a similar treatment?

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 a similar treatment to the one you are about to embark on.

I came to dental solutions with severe anxiety of dentists and Lauren was so helpful, kind and patient with me. For the first time in years I've found a dentist who I feel comfortable with. Thank you

I had a wisdom tooth extracted by Gavin after having toothache due to my tooth breaking. I was nervous as I had not had a tooth removed by injection before. Gavin was reassuring, explained the procedure fully and it was over quickly with no pain. All staff at the practice are caring, friendly and professional and I have been going for many years. I highly recommend Dental Solutions.
Thank you to Gavin and team at Dental Solutions for the superb dental work done yesterday. As well as being highly professional and very good at what they do the place has a great atmosphere which makes going to the dentist a pleasure.

Can’t speak highly enough of this practice and in particular Lauren. 2 years ago I walked in and was so nervous I cried just as the sight of the chair. Her and the staff have been so patient and understanding and have worked with me to overcome my phobia. This week I had a filling and was absolutely fine, my family couldn’t believe it. Reception staff are lovely and really accommodating too. So glad I found them, I don’t dread the dentist anymore.

A really Five Star Dental Practice! Upon arrival I was greeted by their most friendly welcoming receptionists. it seems nothing is 'too much trouble' to them. Gavin is similarly very friendly and the surgery is kitted out with the most high-tech modern equipment. On my first visit Gavin examined my teeth and explained my options to me giving me his recommendation for treatment and reasons why. Their Co-ordinator prepared a detailed quote for my treatment and went through it in detail with me, ensuring I understood everything; she had plenty of time for me as a patient. From the outset I had complete confidence in entrusting them with my dental care and the final results are truly amazing. Gavin and Richard could not have been more professional and my treatment was made as painless as possible. Dental Solutions provide a truly outstanding service and I thank them for my new 'long lost' smile and renewed confidence, especially when dining out and talking with people. I can't recommend them too highly.

A first class experience from start to finish. Despite being fearful of visiting the dentist, Gavin put me at ease with his gentle unhurried manner. I was surprised at how relaxed I actually felt undergoing treatment for a crown and the removal/replacement of front teeth veneers. Having felt self conscious about my front teeth for a long time, I decided to have my old veneers replaced. The results were amazing and far exceeded my expectations. What Gavin achieved was nothing short of a work of art, boosting my confidence tenfold. The practice itself is very welcoming, the customer service excellent and the staff are all very friendly and kind. I cannot recommend this dental practise highly enough.

I recently needed some urgent treatment and after trying a couple of dentists in the area, dental solutions were the only dentist that agreed to see me, genuinely nobody else showed any interest in helping me. The receptionist I spoke to initially was super compassionate and understanding and did all she could to get me in asap. I saw Lauren for all of my appointments, and I’ve now had: a composite filling, root canal and emax crown and just yesterday had a wisdom tooth extracted. I don't know what Lauren does but I have had zero pain or discomfort with any treatments during and after. I'm extremely happy with the results of her work. She definitely knows her stuff and filled me with the utmost confidence whilst in the chair! I literally cant find any fault with any of the experiences I have had so far. They go the extra mile and do it with a smile. What more can you ask for?! Definitely my dentist for the foreseeable future! Thank you Lauren and everyone!

Had my initial consultation with Lauren, truly professional and extremely friendly. She explained all my options in detail and following discussions opted for veneers and can't wait to see the end result.
