Dental Treatment and COVID-19

Dear Patients,

On 25th March 2020 Sara Hurley (Chief Dental Officer England) and Matt Neligan (Director of Primary Care and System transformation) released their latest statement on the rapidly developing COVID-19 pandemic.

We would like to update you on how this will affect our service provision at Dentalcare Group. The guidance is clear that all routine, non-urgent dental care, including orthodontic treatments must be deferred until advised otherwise. We are still here to support you and your dental needs through this unprecedented time.

We want to take this opportunity to reassure all our patients that we take the spread of the COVID-19 in the UK very seriously. The health and safety of our patients, staff and visitors to our dental practice is our main priority.

Here at Dentalcare Group we will be providing all our patients with a remote service during normal working hours. Our dentists will perform telephone triaging for: advice; analgesia; and antimicrobials (if appropriate) . We will not be able to see you at the practice.

If it is not possible to manage your symptoms remotely, you will have to be referred to a Local Urgent Dental Care Centre. Details of these are currently being established in our area and we will update you as soon as we have further information.

We will use our best professional judgement in the triaging process and work collaboratively with our Local Urgent Care system, possibly volunteering our expertise where necessary to help meet the demands imposed on this new emergency service.

Dental Implants

at Dentalcare Bradford On Avon

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are used to support one or more false teeth. Unlike dentures, these false teeth are permanent as they are embedded into your gum and they look and feel just like your usual teeth.

Dental implants are made up of three parts. Firstly, there is a titanium rod which is gently inserted into your jawbone and this acts as your new tooth root. The second part is the abutment or post which connects to the rod and this sits in the gum. The final part is the crown, and this acts as your new replacement tooth and this is the part that is visible when you smile or open your mouth.

Types of Dental Implants in Langley

At Dentalcare Bradford On Avon, we offer different types of dental implants.

A single dental implant can be used to replace one missing tooth, or we can offer several dental implants to replace more than one gap or missing teeth.

If you have multiple missing teeth or no teeth at all, we can offer a process called all-on-4 dental implants. This is where just 4 dental implants are used to support a full range of new teeth. This type of dental implant is highly cost effective if you have many missing or failing teeth and it can mean a faster healing time as opposed to having several single dental implants.

Find out which type is best suited to you by booking a consultation.

Frequently asked questions about Dental Implants

How long do dental implants take to get fitted?

This varies according to each patient. It will depend upon how many teeth you wish to replace, and your dentist will need to consider the health of your gums and any remaining teeth. Some dental implants can be fitted within the same day, other more complex cases, can take months if your bones and gums need more attention.

Can I get dental implants on the NHS?

Mostly dental implants are seen a cosmetic dental procedure. Occasionally patients may get dental implants on the NHS if they are unable to wear a denture and have had their teeth knocked out due to trauma or accident.

Do dental implants hurt?

Dental implants is a detailed procedure as it involves surgery to your jawbone. You will be given a local anaesthetic to your gum so that you will not feel a thing during the procedure. Your mouth and gums may feel sore once the anaesthetic wears off, but this should all settle down within days. You should not feel any pain at all once the implants have been fitted and you can enjoy life as normal.
