Dental Implants

If you have one or more missing teeth, dental implants can provide a particularly reliable and long-lasting way to fill in gaps that may have been brought about by gum disease, decay or trauma. They can also be used to stabilise dentures, ensuring they offer a more secure fit and don’t move around uncomfortably in your mouth.

At Lansdowne House, thanks to our expertise and considerable experience, we can provide exceptionally stable results using implant retained dentures. A member of our team, Graham Stokes, was awarded the Schottlander prize for prosthetic dentistry in 2005. By combining his denture skills with his dental implant knowledge, Graham can ensure your dentures look and feel much more like the real thing.

If you don’t replace missing teeth, several problems can arise, including difficulty eating and speaking, loss of the underlying jaw bone and movement of any remaining natural teeth.

Dental implants are small metal posts which are surgically placed in your jawbone and act as a substitute tooth roots to support replacement teeth. They are made from titanium – a durable metal that is well-tolerated by the body and will eventually fuse with the surrounding bone.

Dental implants can benefit all kinds of patients, as long as they have a fully developed jaw bone and sufficient bone density. However, there are some conditions and lifestyle choices which may reduce the chances of successful treatment. These include smoking, excessive alcohol intake, gum disease, an impaired immune system and teeth grinding.

Treatment steps

Aftercare

It is vital to maintain an effective oral hygiene routine following treatment to ensure your implants stay in great condition.

We can give you plenty of advice about how to look after your teeth and gums, and if you do take care of them by regularly brushing and flossing, your implants should last for years. Remember to attend regular check-ups too, so we can spot any problems before they get too serious.

Testimonials

When I first went to Graham I was petrified of dentists. Now, not only do I have a fantastic smile that I am proud of for the first time in my life, I actually look forward to going to see him and his team who have been fabulous to me and have helped to build my confidence in more ways than one. Lovely people and a talented dentist - funny too! Rachel Baker
Last year I found I required four root canal fillings. I was terrified of what lay ahead; I had heard such horror stories that panic set in. I can honestly say that I found the root canal fillings totally painless and Giles was superb. He explained everything to me in detail and allayed my fears. He even had a DVD player with a screen on the ceiling so I watched the test match and also films of my choice whilst having the work done. After the anaesthetic wore off, I had only minimal discomfort that was relieved by simple analgesia. All the staff at LHDP Smilecare have been wonderful throughout my year of extensive treatment and I can honestly say I no longer dread going to the dentist. Jo Mitchell
