Dental Treatment and COVID-19

Following the announcement by the government on 28th May, we are incredibly pleased and excited to announce that we will be re-opening our practice soon!

At Dentalcare Group patient safety and comfort is of paramount importance, and we have spent the time during closure upgrading the clinic and introducing the following measures to keep our patients and staff SAFER than ever.

The clinic as you are aware has always been a very clean and safe environment. However, we have placed hand sanitisers at entry points, upgraded our PPE and redesigned the patient journey in line with social distancing.

We will be conducting pre-screening tests of patients which is likely to include taking your temperature on arrival.

We have had to cancel numerous appointments since the lockdown began 3 months ago and will initially be prioritising appointments for our existing patients who have had dental emergencies or appointments cancelled, in order of urgency. Please do not attend the clinic unless you have an appointment.

We thank you all for your patience during this difficult time and look forward to seeing you again soon!

We will be in touch as soon as we are ready to see you!

What are Dental Implants?

A missing tooth or missing multiple teeth can cause embarrassment and greatly affect your confidence. At Dentalcare Berinsfield, we will talk through your options to replace gaps in your teeth and these can include dentures, bridges or dental implants.

Dental implants are becoming more popular with patients as they are the only permanent option to replace a missing tooth or missing teeth.

A dental implant is made up of a titanium post which is gently inserted into your jawbone acting as the root of your tooth. A crown or bridge then sits on top of this to act as your new tooth.

Types of Dental Implants in Langley

The type of dental implant that you have will generally depend upon how many teeth you wish to replace. Your dentist can give you more advice about which is best for you at your appointment.

Single dental implant

This is the best option if you have one missing or failing tooth. The implant is gently inserted into your jawbone and the crown is then is added on to the top. Sometimes you will be given a temporary crown until your permanent crown can be made for you.

All-On-4 dental implants

This is a good option if you have multiple missing teeth or no teeth at all. Just 4 implants are inserted into your gums and this supports a complete set of new teeth, giving you a brand-new smile. Whilst this might sound drastic, the all-on-4 dental implants are beneficial for many missing teeth in that they are cost-effective and can have a faster healing time rather than having several single dental implants.

Are Dental Implants right for you?

If your Dentalcare Berinsfield dentist believes that you have a clinical need, then dental implants, dentures and bridges can be available on the NHS. They are mostly considered to be a cosmetic form of dentistry and so this treatment will have a fee. Your dentist will be able to tell you more at your consultation.

Frequently asked questions about Dental Implants

Are dental implants better than dentures?

Dentures and implants both have advantages and disadvantages and it is a good idea for you to find out more information at your dentist who can help you to decide which is the best option for you. Dentures are cheaper than dental implants, but they can cause more issues and discomfort than dental implants. The main benefit of dental implants is that they are fixed in place and act like permanent teeth.

How long do dental implants take to have fitted?

This depends upon each patient. Your dentist will need to consider the health of your gums and current teeth along with your general health. Some implants can be fitted in the same day giving you same-day-teeth. Other implants will be more complicated and could take months to fix if your gums and bone require more care.

How long do dental implants last?

Again, this depends upon each patient. Most dental implants last for many years and the life of your dental implants can be prolonged with good oral hygiene.
