Everyone Can Have Implants

Some patients get turned away for implants by their dentist due to losing one or multiple teeth resulting in insufficient bone in their jaw.

At Meadow Walk, we offer a free consultation where we will carry out a full assessment of your general health and oral health.

We may recommend having a CT scan which identifies any bone loss and this procedure is carried out conveniently at the practice.

During this consultation, you will be advised if you need any prior surgery to support a dental implant. If so, you may have to undergo bone-grafting treatment which ensures there is sufficient bone to support a long-lasting implant. You will be put under general anaesthesia for this surgery, which will put you to sleep.

Bone-grafting is where the surgeon will make an incision in your gum, and using a special bone grafting material they will shape the adopted bone to fit the area. Once secure, the surgeon will close the incision with stitches and bandage the wound. Once the bone-grafting is complete and healed the rest of the implant surgery can proceed.

Information about the temporary practice closure and emergency treatments

As I am sure it may come as no surprise that we will be closing the practice following the recent guidance from the government and dental governing bodies.

The practice will be closed from Tuesday 24th March 2020 to ensure we are protecting you, our lovely patients as well as our staff.

If you have a dental emergency during this time and would like advice then please call the practice and a dentist on call will aim to call you back within a few hours. These arrangements will continue for the foreseeable future.

As a guide a dental emergency is:

  • Heavy bleeding that does not stop
  • Swelling/infection which makes it hard to breathe
  • Tooth that has been knocked out
  • Severe tooth pain

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and stay safe.
Assuring you of our best attention at all times.

From all of us at Meadow Walk Dental and The Gallery Dental and Implant Centre.
