Dental Implant Clinic in Crewe

The Best Dental Implants in Crewe, Cheshire

The power of a good smile cannot be understated. People appreciate a full smile and you feel all the better for being able to smile with confidence. If you’re missing a tooth, or multiple teeth, and want to improve your smile, then dental implants may be the answer.

A Long Term Solution

Dental implants are essentially substitutes for a natural tooth root. Each implant is precisely and carefully inserted below where you want your new tooth to appear, to ensure it stays in place, just like a natural root would. These implants can serve as either a support for a single tooth, or as the long-term support for more serious dental work like crowns, bridges and dentures. Looked after well, implants can last you a lifetime.

Depending on the location of the missing teeth, and the number of teeth being replaced, you may need multiple implants. However, one dental implant can often support multiple teeth, so invasive dental work can often be kept to a minimum if missing teeth are near one another.

No Need to Remove Them

Implants can largely be treated in the same way as normal teeth. They can be brushed and flossed in just the same way and there’s no need to remove them for cleaning. If you have good dental hygiene then you will likely be an excellent candidate for implants.

However, our daily lifestyle habits can negatively impact the rate of healing in your mouth after the implants have been put in. As such it makes sense to speak to one of our in-house experts about aftercare to ensure you take the right precautions after having implants fitted.

If you have any concerns or are looking for the cost of dental implants, please feel free to ask the Cheshire Dental Centre in Crewe for more information. Call us on 01270 256426 to find out more about our affordable dental implants look forward to speaking with you soon.

Covid-19 and your care

We have now received clear guidance as to what dental procedures we can safely carry out and at what stages during the pandemic.

Below is a summary of the guidance as we understand it, although this may modify over the next few days as some small inconsistencies are clarified.

The government has set five different risk levels for the pandemic 1-5 (low to high), although this changes on a daily basis.

The treatments that we can carry out safely in dental practice will change with the risk level.

Treatments are significantly limited at level 4.

During the next few weeks, we will attempt to contact each patient that has contacted us with a significant dental problem during lockdown, and we hope to book an assessment appointment for those patients in the week commencing 8th June.

Practice doors will be locked at level 3, 4 and 5. Entry to the practice will be limited to pre-booked appointments.

There will be very clear criteria provided in due course as what is required before arriving at the practice, and what the procedure will be upon arrival. We will endeavour to ensure that each person knows exactly what to expect at their visit as this will be quite different to what you have been used to.

The appointment diary will be structured to take into consideration those patients who are shielding, may have underlying medical issues and so on.

The first week is expected to be a slow start as we ensure that the new protocols are working effectively for everyone’s safety. These protocols will be audited and modified until required.

At level 4 we should be able to carry out the following:

Dental assessment (initially restricted to patients who have current urgent need, or did and contacted us during lockdown).

X rays but only for patients who tolerate them well.

TEMPORARY re cementation of crowns. (We cannot dry the tooth effectively enough to cement a crown permanently with the restrictions we face).

Fabrication or repair of removable dentures.

Simple dental extractions. If a tooth breaks, it is probable we will have to leave the roots in place until we are at a lower level of risk. Naturally, we will assess the risk very carefully prior to treatment.

Tightening of loose dental implants if possible, without using a high-speed handpiece (drill).

Temporary fillings.

Draining of a swelling/abscess.

Provision of antibiotics.

Trimming of sharp orthodontic wires (not reliable re cementation of loose brackets, or replacement of missing brackets).

Treatment is only to be offered after careful assessment.

Cosmetic orthodontics

Cheshire Dental Centre provide many of these treatments. We may now be able to progress some of our Quick Straight Teeth cases. We will be in touch with each patient shortly, but please allow us to contact you; we hope that it is understandable that we will be prioritising patients with urgent dental need.

The PPE (personal protective equipment) requirements for the above are not too onerous, and we will not look too different to normal. As you are aware, the cross-infection control at Cheshire Dental Centre has always been exemplary and one of our top priorities.

Although we have been organised with the new PPE guidelines well in advance there may be the occasional time where we are awaiting stock. All practices are attempting to source the necessary PPE we need to keep you and us safe, but supplies are scarce and consequently very expensive.
