Can dental implants be done in a day? It may come as a surprise to know that, YES, in many single teeth cases, it is possible to fit a dental implant in a day. In fact we do this procedure – known as an “immediate implant” – on a regular basis here at The Raglan Suite. It means that a patient can come into the practice, have the failing tooth removed and the implant placed together with an aesthetic temporary crown, all in the same appointment.Read More

If you’re very nervous of the dentist or dental treatment, you are not alone. It’s believed that over 60% of the adult population suffers from some level of anxiety about visiting the dentist.
There are many people who feel a “little uneasy” about dental treatment, but they can usually cope. However, if you have an intense or persistent fear of the dentist, you may have dental anxiety or dental phobia and will need a sympathetic practice with additional support to get the treatment you need.Read More

Digital advancements in the last 18 years have drastically changed how we communicate, travel and even eat. The technology used in the provision of Implant Dentistry has not been left behind, allowing us as oral surgeons to offer even more predictable results for patients.
Implant dentistry has gone digital. This means that we collect data – such as clinical photographs of your teeth, x-rays and impressions – digitally. Furthermore, with the aid of computer programming and laboratory technicians, we can now put this data together to show you what the clinical outcome is likely to be before a tooth is even removed.Read More

I am obsessed by good service. I drive my wife and family mad when we eat out because if we haven’t had good service in a pub or restaurant, I won’t stay to have pudding! We leave after the main course. I admit that this is shooting myself in the foot as I love pudding, but there is a principle involved here…
I don’t ask for much – a warm, friendly welcome, with attentive, but not intrusive service. I’ll forgive pretty much anything after that. We recently came back from a family holiday in France where I found a slug (still alive) in my salad. It may have been a French restaurant, but still, I’m pretty sure that it wasn’t supposed to be there. However, because the restaurant owners were such lovely people, I didn’t feel the need to make too much of a fuss!Read More

This time of year often provides a period of reflection and an optimistic look to the future. This year it is the 70thanniversary of the inception of the National Health Service, formed as part of Clement Attlee’s (then Labour Prime Minister) “cradle to grave” welfare state reform policy in the aftermath of the Second World War. The NHS was the first universal health care system established anywhere in the world. Amongst other services, it provided greater access to dental care, in an otherwise dentally neglected population.Read More
In the aesthetically driven world that we live in, missing a front tooth would be devastating. Rightly or wrongly, we are often judged by the way we look. This is why missing a front tooth is
embarrassing and socially awkward. Ask yourself the question – if you lost your front tooth, would you leave the house?
