At Coach House Dental Care we understand the difficulties missing teeth can cause in your daily life.
Having gaps or wearing loose or uncomfortable dentures can seriously limit what we eat and can have a huge impact on our appearance and self-confidence.
The good news is that today’s dentistry means that you no longer have to put up with these problems.
Dental implants feel and function just like natural teeth and can offer you a reliable and permanent solution to missing teeth. Individual implants can be used to replace a single tooth and multiple implants can be used to restore a larger number of teeth, hold a denture firmly in place or even replace a full denture altogether.
The first step in the treatment sequence is placing the titanium implant in the jaw using a gentle surgical procedure. The bone forms a strong bond to the implant after just 6-8 weeks, providing a solid foundation for attaching a replacement tooth (crown). Both the gum tissue and the bone remodel around the implant at the same time.
Following this brief period of time during which the bone is remodelling around the implant, fabrication of the replacement tooth can begin.
Our implant surgeon, Mrs Giedre Valentine, will carry out a full assessment to advise on the suitability of implants. Modern techniques have made it possible for most adults who are missing teeth to qualify as a candidate for implants
The determining factors are a sufficient amount of quality bone, good oral hygiene and generally good health. Prior to implant placement, the remaining teeth and gums need to be healthy.
A full initial assessment of all factors is critical to the success of the implant, along with good oral hygiene and regular check –ups with your dentist.
Since the individual needs of each patient are different, it is necessary to formulate a treatment plan before the actual cost of treatment can be determined. Many factors are involved in this process, including the number of implants needed, the type of replacement teeth desired and possible procedures necessary to enhance the final aesthetic and functional results. Once a treatment plan has been agreed, a fee estimate is determined to take these factors into consideration. As a guide, a single straight forward implant is approximately £2100.00 for the complete treatment.

As someone who is quite apprehensive when dental visits draw near, I would like to thank Mr Handley and staff for putting me at ease so that now when I go away I am thinking – ‘why was I so worried?’.
