Q: What are the main dental services you offer?

A: Our orthodontic treatments include Invisalign and Smilelign, with fixed or removable retainers, which help stabilize and maintain the position of your teeth. We also offer white fillings, dental extractions, teeth whitening, hygienist services and even facial aesthetics.

From standard exams to root canal procedures, we have a number of options available to improve the aesthetics and health of your teeth. Endodontic treatment (root canal treatment) is an extremely effective method to avoid tooth extraction. It involves removing, shaping, cleaning and sealing the root canals.

Implants are a fantastic restorative treatment for missing teeth because they are custom made to suit you. Replacing a missing or failing tooth with a single implant has great advantages over the alternative options of a bridge or denture.

Q: What is the process for placing dental implants?

A: An initial consultation is the very first step, giving us the opportunity to understand the patient’s needs and ask ourselves questions. Our lead dentist, Dr. Reza Faridrad, is a board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon who will review your mouth and medical history to identify the ideal treatment. An additional CT scan may also be needed.

The next step is to provide the treatment that best suits the individual – this can range from procedures that are completed within a day to those that take a bit longer. Teeth in a Day is an implant treatment that allows patients to enjoy results the same day they have their implants placed. Traditionally, implants are placed in sockets in the jawbone and then left to heal for three to six months.

They are an excellent same-day surgery option for patients with severe gum disease, an entire arch of missing teeth, or a few decayed teeth.

Q: Do you offer payment plans to help patients with their costs?

A: Yes, financing options are available for patients considering dental implant treatment. Ensuring we have easy and affordable ways to cover costs is one of our priorities and we welcome referrals from GPs and NHS practices.

Our Treatment funding is a popular option that spreads the cost of treatment over 12 months, with a zero interest loan. These options have proven invaluable in providing high quality and affordable dental care to a wide range of patients.

Q: Can you help patients with severe tooth and bone loss?

A: Absolutely, we have several treatments suitable for people who only have one or two healthy teeth left. Even in severe cases where there is not enough bone to hold the implants in place, we can perform bone and sinus grafts to add density and volume to the jawbone. These are usually done before implant treatments.

Zygomatic implants are an ideal choice for patients with severe jaw atrophy and can also be used in conjunction with traditional dental implants to replace upper and lower teeth.

The All about X The technique is well suited for patients who have no teeth left, as it places a full row of functional teeth on multiple implants. It is a one-day treatment that fully restores your smile in just one procedure, helping to boost your confidence and improve your quality of life.

Another full arch restorative treatment is the All-on-4. Similar to All-on-X, this method adds a fully functional row of teeth on just four implants and is a significantly less invasive procedure that gives you back the ability to eat harder foods and share your smile with others.

Q: What makes dental implants such an effective treatment?

A: Dental implants are extremely durable and long lasting. With regular visits to a hygienist, every six months being the recommended time frame, implants can easily last 20 to 30 years, and with proper care they can even last a lifetime.

No creams or solutions are needed as they fit perfectly in your mouth and even maintain your facial structure. They are the perfect choice to put a smile on your face!
