A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium that a dentist with a special interest in Oral and Facial Surgery places into your jaw. Dental implants are ideal for people in good oral health who have lost one or more teeth.
By replacing just one tooth in the mouth, they enable the restoration of a natural smile, improving patient comfort and confidence.
Placing of the implants is carried out at the surgery, involving a simple operation under a normal local anaesthetic. They can replace missing teeth by then adding crowns or an implant retained denture. Some patients may require bone or sinus augmentation which we now offer at Larkham House without the need to refer our patients to other specialists.
With diligent patient maintenance, implants can last a lifetime. Long-term studies continue to show improving success rates for implants.
We are now offering an Advanced Dentistry Referral Service from dental colleagues or from patients themselves for complex dental implant cases. We have the latest CBCT imaging scanner to enable advanced diagnosis for complex procedures and patient care. We aim to see patients within 7 days of receiving the referral. Please contact us for further details.
Larkham House offers patients a short waiting time for consultations and for treatment appointments, clinic hours are flexible to suit your requirements, including evening opening until 8 pm.
Initially, there will be a consultation appointment which will include a complete oral assessment and the taking of any required OPG or CBCT scans.
The length of the subsequent appointments will depend on each individual case.
The patient’s medical and dental history will be considered, along with their own wishes. To make all implants a personal solution and to help control fees. An accurate diagnosis may save cost, generic quotes can be too high, as well as too low.
