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?

Dental implants are a permanent, natural replacement for a missing tooth or missing teeth.

Dental implants are made up of titanium post, which are gently inserted into your jawbone and this acts as the tooth root. Crowns or bridges then sit on top of this which replace the missing teeth.

More patients are opting for dental implants to replace embarrassing gaps in their mouth.

Types of Dental Implants in Langley

There are different types of dental implants, and to determine which is best for you will depend upon how many teeth you have missing and what you are looking to achieve. We recommend booking a consultation to discuss this in detail with our expert staff.

Single dental implant

If you are missing just one tooth or need to replace a failing tooth, then a single dental implant is the best option for you. The weak tooth is firstly removed. The new implant is fitted with a replacement crown or false new tooth added to this. Sometimes we can offer this all in the space of one appointment to give you same day teeth.

All-on-4 dental implants

If you have multiple missing teeth, or you have many teeth in poor condition or you have no teeth at all, then the all-on-4 dental implants are a good option for you. Just 4 implants are inserted into your jaws and are used to support a full set of permanent, natural looking teeth. This is a cost-effective option for multiple missing teeth, and it can also have a faster healing time than having several individual dental implants.

Frequently asked questions about Dental Implants

Do dental implants hurt?

The process for dental implants sounds traumatic but your discomfort is kept to a minimum during the procedure. We use local anaesthetic to completely numb the area so that you can’t feel what is happening. After the procedure, your mouth may feel sore, but this should soon wear off after several days.

How long do dental implants last?

This varies according to different patients. Most dental implants last for years. Poor oral hygiene, bone loss or any form of accident can cause the dental implants to be compromised.

Can I get dental implants on the NHS?

Mostly dental implants are deemed to be 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.
