Implants have become the preferred method for tooth replacement in many situations. They have proved very successful in the long term and avoid preparation to adjacent teeth.
Implants are essentially "artificial roots" made from titanium that are placed in the jaw to replace missing teeth. A crown, bridge or denture can be attached to these implants to restore a gappy smile, stabilise a loose denture or to make eating easier and more comfortable.
The concept is remarkably simple and in well-planned cases, so is the treatment. There is a large amount of skill and knowledge to actually placing implants comfortably and safely. We are very fortunate to have Louis McArdle, a consultant oral surgeon at Guys' Hospital , available to place our implants here at The Buckley Practice. He was the first dentist in the UK to achieve an MSc in Implantology and has been placing implants for our patients since 2001.
We use a restorative led team approach, which is considered the gold standard for implant placement. This means our team of Implantologist, dentists and dental technicians work closely together to provide you with the highest quality implant and final restoration in the form of a crown, bridge or denture.
It is amazing what a well restored implant can do for your appearance, well being and self confidence.
