The NHS does not provide 'white' fillings in back teeth, tooth whitening, or other forms of cosmetic treatments.
Whilst we are committed to the NHS, we
are also aware that the NHS does
not meet the needs of all patients. For this reason, we also offer a Dental

visits per year, as well as a 20% discount off all private and
cosmetic treatments. You will also be treated as a priority should you
need to be seen between visits. Signing up for our dental plan also entitles

whilst elsewhere in the UK or overseas.

What are implants?
has always been the aim of all prosthetic dental treatment to restore
natural conditions in the mouth as faithfully as possible when teeth
have decayed or been lost. The smaller the number of teeth remaining,
the more difficult it is to achieve this aim. With large prostheses,
it is frequently impossible to achieve perfect functioning in the
long term, because changes may occur in the jaw and the gums of the
mouth as a result of the situation. The prosthesis.
In many such cases, tooth implants offer a better solution. Implants
replace missing teeth, including the root. They are implanted in the
jaw in place of the old missing teeth. While the implant is healing,
the bone adheres to it, so that eventually it is firmly anchored in
During the healing or incorporation period, which lasts at least three
months, the implant lies below the gum of the mouth, which protects
it against stresses during this phase. Then a peg is screwed into the
implant, on which the "new tooth" is firmly fixed in place
like a traditional crown. The implant takes on the pressure from chewing
instead of the root, and gently introduces it into the jaw, almost
like the natural tooth.
What does the treatment involve?
Your dentist will begin by examining your mouth and teeth thoroughly, because any inflammation needs to be cured before implantation can begin. Decay in any remaining teeth and any periodontal disease should be treated first. If you are suffering from any systemic (general) illness, the use of implants may need the approval of your medical doctor.
Once the dentist has acquired an overall picture of your teeth, has explained the treatment to you and planned his course of action, the operation begins.
Following application of a local anaesthetic, the jaw is exposed at the point where the implant will be inserted into the bone. The site for the implant is prepared, the implant is inserted and then the gum is stitched back. The after-effects of implantation can be compared with those of having a tooth extracted.
The fact that the implant is covered by the gum protects it against potentially harmful stress during the healing phase, so that it can be incorporated without any disruption.
Depending on the individual situation, it takes three to six months
for the implant to be firmly anchored into the jaw. A peg is screwed
into the implant and the prosthesis is then fixed in place over it.
