Record numbers of patients having Dental Implants

7 February 2019 Categories: Dental implant

The number of dental implants placed by clinicians at a leading North Yorkshire Dental Practice have seen a dramatic increase during 2018.

Dentists at The Raglan Suite, in Harrogate, have placed over 1105 dental implants in 2018 for patients in the region, many of whom have been referred by their own dentist, a figure which is up from 968 in 2017. Dr Steve Byfield,  Clinician at The Raglan Suite attributed the growth to the addition of a new dentist joining the clinical team with practice limited to implants.

Field of Dentistry: Dental Implants

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.

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.

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.

The Value of Good Service

“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…

The Changing Face of Dentistry

22 February 2018 Categories: Dentistry Tagged with: , ,

This time of year often provides a period of reflection and an optimistic look to the future. This year it is the 70th anniversary 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.

In the mid half of the twentieth century, dental disease was rife. The vast majority of dental treatment provided was tooth extractions and the provision of dentures. So what’s changed? A huge amount! Below I’ve listed my top four significant changes to happen to dentistry over the last seventy years:

I’m missing a front tooth! What next?

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?

The traditional approach to replace a single missing tooth

So what happens if you lose a front tooth in an accident or a sports injury, or are told that it needs to be extracted?

“Will my child need braces?”

We all watch our little ones carefully as they grow and that includes their dental development. Whether or not their child will need braces is one of the most common questions that parents put to dentists, particularly if they have worn braces themselves as a child or currently need them. However, although parents may be looking for a simple yes or no answer, it’s not always so clear-cut!

As a Specialist Orthodontist, I monitor a child’s facial and dental growth, and detect problems with bones and the position of teeth at the ideal age to treat them. In some cases, problems are best treated early when there is a mixture of baby and adult teeth which can help simplify or avoid orthodontics later on. This might include a reverse bite (lower front teeth forward of the upper ones) or teeth not coming through in the right order. In other cases, it is best to wait until most or all of the adult teeth are through (from age 10-13) to help promote a successful treatment outcome.

Is it possible to enjoy your trip to the dentist?

13 November 2017 Categories: Uncategorized

Dr. Tim DoswellBy Dental Surgeon Dr. Tim Doswell

Lets face it, not many people look forward to visiting their dentist. A trip to the dentist usually conjures up images of pain, anxiety, needles, drills and someone trying to have a conversation with you while your mouth is wide open! As dentists, we hear patients saying “it’s not you, I just don’t like dentists!” But with today’s technology and sympathetic techniques, is it possible to actually enjoy stress-free dental treatment?

It is my belief that a lot of dental fear originates from trips to the old fashioned “school dentist” who struck fear into a whole generation of patients with primitive techniques and lack of a kind bedside manner. So I would like to attempt to allay fears about dentists and outline some of the techniques we use at The Raglan Suite to make the treatment journey as comfortable as possible – perhaps even enjoyable!
