Which implant brand is right for me ?

Most of our patients do not ask about the Implant Brands, their request is only for Dental Implants. In fact over 80% of patients do not ask for the manufacturer name. The remaining 20% ask for a specific brand which is usually Nobel or Straumann. 

We use a large selection of Implants including those named above depending on our patients bone structure and of course their budget. 

Patients often ask for Nobel as they were the founder of the dental implant and they have a brand name you can reply on however you will find yourself pay a substantial amount for the brand name alone. 

For example, if you want a Gucci handbag it might cost you £1,000 but if you wanted a premium, high end brand of handbag such as Hermes you would be looking at £8,000 plus. Is there any quality difference between the bags apart from the brand name, logo or the coveted brand? In short No… They are both made from premium leather in a controlled environment and will last you a lifetime. 

The first Implant was placed in 1965 and since this time we see more and more Implant manufactures year on year. Some of these manufactures have been in the industry for 10 years or more so you can understand the relevance of a 10 year guarantee. You cannot however make sense of a 10 year guarantee from an Impla...

Dental Implants Vs Airport Security

The awkward moment when you walk through a metal detector and you hear a beep...

If you travel abroad at least one time year, you will have noticed the heightened security at the airport.

So it begs the question, and it really does as our patients are asking us again and again…

Will my Dental Implants set off a metal detector at the airport?

Metal detectors have different settings and in some countries they are set to a level so specific they will pick up just about anything. 

Many small things that we would never consider can set off a metal detector  such as a little foil wrapper. Yes your tiny chewing gum or foil in your cigarette packet can and will on occasion make you beep! Hairbands are also another regular culprit. Many brands are now making the transition from foil wrappers to paper for this very reason. 

Titanium is as strong as steel, but only 45 percent the weight and it is for this reason that a large percentage of the worlds population now has something titanium in their body including; Hip and joint replacement, Pins, Posts, Wires and Rods… Hell, our bodies internally are starting to look like some kind of hardware store! 

Dental implants are made of titanium metal and therefore are not magnetic. This means that most security metaş detectors will not detect Dental Implants. That said, there is a chance that if the scanners set...

Baby Teeth - Stem Cell

Forget the Tooth Fairy. Your Child's Tooth Is Worth More Than Just A Few Pounds

In the last century freezing embryos and cells has seen a dramatic rise. As women are planning to conceive a lot later in life, we now see more and more adverts relating to freezing fertile eggs for the future. Cryonics is a greek word for ‘cold’ is now the term used for the low-temperature preservation of living tissue. After you are legally dead, in certain parts of the world you can request to be frozen in time at a temperature of -196°C. This is all in the hope that with advancement in modern day medicine you can some day be brought back to life. Although this sounds very sci-fi, it has been available for years with the first human (Dr. James Bedford) being cryopreserved in 1967. As of 2014 approximately 250 people were cryopreserved with a further 1,500 people signing up for the process following their death. People have even opted to have their pets cryopreserved, with 33 animals being frozen in time as of 2007. 

As modern day medicine excels at a rapid rate, doctors are now making use of stem cells to regenerate cells and tissues. There is still a lot of investment and promise in relation to stem cell medicine and despite the hype in the media, the most common use is in bone marrow transplantation, to treat certain blood and immune system disorders or to rebuild the blood system after treatments for certain...

Naughty Bacteria Vs Peppa Pig

This is unusual for me really as this is more of a moan than it is an informative blog post but I thought, if I had a chance to write about it I might calm down by the time I reach the end of this post (I will let you know later)…

My daughter (Ella) is almost 4 years old and attends a local Crèche 5 days a week. The Crèche are very good at educating all the children about the importance of Dentistry.

Only 3 weeks ago Ella visited a local Dental Clinic with her little friends and was delighted to bring home her certificate as she pointed in her mouth for the entire evening and repeatedly told me that she had ‘No Sugar’.

At the Crèche the children sleep for an hour in the afternoon and before they go to sleep they all clean their teeth which I think is a simple but fabulous educational idea.

Last week I was away for a few days. Ella stayed with her grandparents who did the run to and from Crèche. The Crèche asked if nanny would purchase a new toothbrush and handed the old toothbrush which in my father’s words “looked like she had been hammering nails with it!”.

Nanny took Ella to the local supermarket in search of a new toothbrush. Even though Ella is only 4, she takes great delight in choosing what she would like and this is something I try to encourage.

So…

There is Ella looking at the children’s selection of Toothbrushes all with bright packing, covered in favourite cartoon characters.<...

Top 9 Foods That Damage Your Teeth

Watch out for sports drinks

They sound healthy, don’t they? But for many sports and energy drinks, sugar is a top ingredient. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, while sports drinks can be helpful for young athletes engaged in prolonged, vigorous physical activities, in most cases they are unnecessary. Before your next sip, check the label to make sure your drink of choice is low in sugar. Not sure? Drink water instead!

What you eat matters

While these hard candies seem harmless, eat too many and the constant exposure to sugar can be harmful to your teeth. Hard candies also put your teeth at risk because in addition to being full of sugar, they can also trigger a dental emergency such as a broken or chipped tooth. Better alternative? Chew sugarless gum

Ice is for chilling, not chewing

You’d be surprised at how many people think ice is good for their teeth. It’s made of water, after all, and doesn’t contain any sugar or other additives. But chewing on hard substances can leave your teeth vulnerable to a dental emergency and damage enamel. Advice: Break the habit and enjoy water in its liquid form.

Watch your citrus intake

The truth is that frequent exposures to acidic ...

Silver Crowns News

A four-year-old girl has been left with stainless-steel crowns on every single one of her teeth after she made a recent trip to the dentist. 

Savannah White was left with a mouth full of metal after she went in for a routine procedure on four cavities, her mother Alecia said on Monday. 

Mrs White brought her daughter to a dentist's surgery in Phoenix, Arizona and stayed with her until she was sedated before leaving for the waiting room. 

Mrs White brought her daughter home and when the child had woken up from a nap, she was horrified to look inside her mouth which had been coated in metal. 

The dentist's handiwork left the unfortunate little girl with the appearance of Bond villain Jaws, one of the 007's most famous nemeses, played by Richard Kiel, from movies The Spy Who Loved Me and Moonraker.

The mother, who also has a son called Zach, said that she was embarrassed by what the dentist, who has not been identified, did to her daughter. She added that the dental work made Savannah unhappy with her appearance.

Mrs White told AZFamily: 'On a daily basis she says, ''Mommy, I don't like my teeth. I don't like my teeth.'' And it's really kind of hard to hear every single day.'

The local TV station asked Dr Richard Chaet, a pediatric dentist for 30 years who has written guidelines for his peers across the U.S, to examine photographs of the little girl's mouth. 

Dr Chaet said he was amazed by the n...

Patients with a fear of Dentures

It is not that uncommon to have a fear of going to the dentist, despite that fact that modern dentistry methods make the experience as painless as possible. The fears that people tend to have are of injections, drilling, and a few other procedures, but there is also a small group of people that have a mortal fear of dentures or any other foreign object being placed in their mouth (6 patients in 2013 contacted us mentioning a phobia of removable dentures in their initial enquiry). The whole scenario of getting into the dentist chair in the first place becomes overshadowed by the fear of what might happen once the dentures are fitted and placed. It is that fear that leads many people to go through life with teeth that are rotten and broken, or with no teeth at all.

What may come as a surprise is that the fear of dentures does not just come with the thought of having them in the mouth. Some patients are so in the grip of that fear that they cannot even be in the same room where dentures may be on display. It’s a crippling phobia that can be both physically and mentally debilitating, but it is not without a cure of sorts. While some might see dental implants as the perfect alternative, in most cases patients are offered a denture to wear for a 3 month healing period before they need to return and have the permanent Crowns fitted to the Implants. In these cases patients who have a fear of dentures or foreign objects in their mouth are put off the Implant treatment. Ther...
