COVID-19: NOTICE TO ALL PATIENTS

Welcome Back!

To protect patients and staff, we have implemented some new measures to ensure your visit to the practice remains safe. We ask that you kindly pay attention to the following important changes:

1. Please only arrive at the practice if you have an appointment. If you do not have an appointment and wish to speak to someone please contact us via telephone or email.

2. Please arrive a few minutes before your appointment and a member of staff will let you in. If you are early, please stay in your car until your specified appointment time. A staff member will take your temperature and provide you with an alcohol hand rub as you enter the building.

3. To minimise the number of people on-site, we kindly ask you not to bring any other members of your family or friends with you to your appointment. If your child is attending the practice for an appointment, then we ask for only one escorting adult to attend with them.

4. Please wear your face covering while in the practice.

5. Please maintain social distancing on-site.

6. Please bring your own pen to sign any necessary documents.

7. Please use the bathroom before attending the practice.

8. To avoid large queues at the desk and build-up of traffic within the practice, for your safety we ask that you call back to book any follow-up appointments.

9. We would also like to ask that all payments are made by card where possible,for cross-infection reasons.

We thank you for helping us make your visit safe and look forward to seeing you.

Lesley - Key Case Study

'All On Six Dental Implants'
Lesley came in to see us for a consultation complaining of loose, broken and discoloured teeth with generalised gum problems. She was having problems with her partial denture and very embarrassed about her "smile". Lesley found it very difficult when chewing and therefore wasn’t enjoying food as much as she could.

Before Treatment

After Treatment

Consultation

When Lesley came to have her initial consultation we were pleased to see her as we instantly knew we could help. We took X-rays and a CT scan and we discussed her treatment options. We offered the choice of removal of all of the remaining teeth with either a full upper and lower denture or the option of a system called "all on four" or "all on six" (4 or 6 implants upper and lower with fixed implant bridges replacing 12 teeth). Lesley opted for "all on four".

Treatment

Under sedation, we removed all of the remaining upper and lower teeth and we placed 4 implants into the lower jaw and 4 implants into the upper jaw, followed by placement of fixed temporary 12 unit bridges on the same day.

We then waited for the implants to integrate within the jaw bone for approximately 3-4 months, before we made the permanent teeth for Lesley in conjunction with the laboratory.

Aftercare

We asked Lesley to come back after a couple weeks following the implant placement for a review, to check the healing of the implants. Following a period of healing, arrangements were made for impressions to construct the permanent fixed bridges that were fitted a few weeks later.

We also asked Lesley to come in to have 2 hygienist appointments during the first year after implants and then she had yearly followup reviews.
