Why choose us to provide your implant treatment?
I have been placing dental implants for 29 years so I have a wealth of dental implant experience. This includes hospital based dental implant work, teaching and research. I am regularly consulted for 2nd opinions. I provided re-treatments for patients who have had implant treatment elsewhere and have suffered failures or problems. I carried out dento-legal work for many years.
Stringent surgical guidelines are followed
One third of my PhD was based on bacteriology in relation to dental implants. This research background has led me to using a meticulous approach in the surgical aspects of placing dental implants.
I received two NHS grants studying bacterial contamination during dental implant surgery. Our research team carried out two randomised controlled trials looking at how to reduce bacterial contamination during implant surgery.
The results were disseminated though all surgical specialities in the NHS as it was felt that the research has wide reaching implications for many aspects of bone surgery including orthopaedics.
Our aim is to insert implants into the cleanest possible environment to ensure there is minimal bacterial contamination which leads to excellent fusion of the nearby bone to the implants and exceptionally good long term results.
Success or Survival: we use implant success to monitor our implants as it’s the highest standard
A successful dental implant is one which is monitored following strict guidelines to ensure the implant is in excellent health when the tooth is placed on the implant and that the implant remains in excellent health.
We have very few implants that fail and very few implants that are suffering with peri-implantitis or mucositis.
The excellent success rates we achieve is probably down to:
•Using a very stringent meticulous evaluation of all prospective patients. For example, detailed checking of medical health.
•Ensuing the gum health of the remaining teeth is excellent. Poor gum health can cause problems with the implants.
•Following strict surgical procedures (international guidelines). Excellent surgical conditions are very important to ensure the bone binds to the implant and does so very strongly. We use a radio-wave to test the health of dental implants BEFORE we place teeth onto your implants. The Osstell device allows us to measure the degree of bone fusion around your dental implants.
•We explain exactly how implants are to be looked after and cleaned. We physically show the exact methods to clean your implants properly.
•We emphasize the need for regular careful professional implant checks to ensure implants remain healthy. This is often overlooked by many dentists according to our regulatory bodies. Correct monitoring of dental implants is a CRUCIAL part of treatment and is a major determinant of long-term success for dental implants.
