Dr Clarke, trained with a specialist Implantologist, uses the Bicon system. This implant procedure is often preferred for replacing missing teeth, as no other teeth need to be involved. The implant, made of titanium, takes the place of the root of your tooth. In a simple surgical procedure, the titanium implant is placed in to your jaw and during the healing phase, usually uneventful, the bone of your jaw grows together with the implant, a process known as “osseointegration”.This process is complete after three to four months, when a tooth can then be fitted to the implant.
As always the best treatment; on this occasion a visit to hygienist followed by dental check up. I have been going to Dr. Clarke since 1977 as he takes the greatest care of his dental patients. The work he has done has always been of the highest standard possible and he always offers intelligent solutions. Since moving to Wales I still return to Bayswater for my dental treatment. I did have to have emergency treatment in Wales and the dentist was highly respectful of the work done by Dr Clarke. In fact I think he was in awe!
Can't speak highly enough!
Had my wisdom tooth out, was the quickest and least painful dental procedure ever. Melanie and the dental assistant were so patient. Constantly letting me know exactly what was going on and checking that I couldn’t feel anything. Would recommend everybody to use this dentist practice!
Q1. Are dental implants safe and how long will they last?
Implants are a well-established, tried-and-tested treatment. Our preferred Bicon system is achieving a 96% success rate. With the right care, all modern implants should last for many years.
Q2. I have some of my own teeth, can I still have implants?
Yes. You can have any number of teeth replaced with implants – from one single tooth to a complete set.
Q3. Can implants always be used to replace a missing tooth?
It depends on the state of the bone in your jaw. If there is not enough, or if it isn’t healthy enough, it may not be possible to place implants. Though in many cases where your bone is not ideal, an initial procedure to build up the bone of your jaw is nearly always possible. This will add about four months to the length of treatment, to allow for the additional healing.
Q4. Are Implants uncomfortable?
Placing the implants requires a small operation. This can be done using a simple local anaesthetic. You may feel some discomfort during the week after the surgery. This is usually due to having stitches and the normal healing process. Once in function, the implant and the implant tooth are just like your own teeth.
Q5. How long does the treatment take?
We’ll be able to give you a rough timetable before the treatment starts. Usually the implants can be placed three to four months after the loss of your teeth; the teeth are fixed three to four months after the implants are placed. If cosmetically required, or if you are having several teeth replaced, a temporary bridge or denture can be made. If you already have a denture, then this can be worn throughout the healing period once modified after the surgery.
Q6. Does the implant show?
Your dentist will make sure that the implants won’t show during all normal movements of the mouth and lips. You will need to be able to see them, so that you can clean them properly.
Q7. Do I have an implant for each missing tooth?
This depends on the number of teeth missing and the implant system used for replacement
Q8. What happen if the implant does not bond together with the bone?
This happens very rarely. If the implant becomes loose during the healing period or just after, then it is easily removed and bone healing takes place in the normal way. Once the jaw has healed, another implant can be placed, or plans can be changed and a bridge made, using the implants that have ‘taken’ or preparing your own teeth for crowns.
Great customer service and well-experienced dental surgeons. I was able to book a Saturday appointment after feeling a large bump on my gum on Monday. There was a longer-than usual wait time the day of the appointment and the receptionist was very accommodating and agreed to call me once the doctor was done. I live very close so went home for 15 minutes, hung my laundry, and got the call to come back.
It turned out I needed a tooth extraction as my last wisdom tooth was starting to break through. The dentist assured me he was a specialist in tooth extractions, and he is! Even the needle full of numbing agent was so fast I could barely feel it. The entire process, from me getting into the chair to them finishing the procedure (including taking x-rays) only took 45 minutes—the epitome of quick and painless at the dentist! They were also very accommodating and provided me OTC anti-inflammatory pills to save me a trip to Boots. I required no antibiotics, healed well, and my stitches fell out on schedule after 10 days. Highly recommend Bayswater Dental. :)
Owing to an upbringing in Scotland many years ago (pre Fluoride) and years of travelling as well as an injury to my jaw from a climbing accident, I have had to see well over 20 dentists in the course of my life. I have experience of dentists in several countries and work has included implants as well as other quite complex work. When I visited Dr Vahid at Bayswater, he drew up a comprehensive plan, which included some cosmetic work as I wanted to look my best for my marriage a few months ago. Not only did he explain every stage of the plan but he listened carefully to what I wanted or thought I wanted and adapted accordingly. His cosmetic work was superb and the other work that he did on dentistry that was failing was the best I have ever experienced. He has an engineering background as well as being a very experienced dentist; moreover, he explains extremely well and clearly works to the highest standard. The support staff are also very welcoming and helpful. I would recommend Dr Vahid as highly as possible.
