Record numbers of Patients having Dental Implants7 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, Implant Clinician at The Raglan Suite attributed the growth to the addition of a new dentist joining the implant clinical team.
Dr Byfield commented, “We have seen an increase in demand for a fixed solution to replace missing teeth and needed to expand our team to meet the needs of our patients. The ability to fit dental implants in just one day to replace missing teeth or loose dentures, has increased demand for treatment whilst transforming lives.”
Dr Tim Doswell regularly lectures across the UK on dental implant systems and also works at The Raglan Suite added, “We work together with dental practices from around North Yorkshire and beyond to ensure our referring dentist network is kept abreast of the latest technology and procedures which enable us to support patients who may have lost all hope of having confidence in their teeth again. Dental implants provide a great solution.”
The most recent member of the implant clinical team, Haytham Abbas, said, ”It’s a pleasure to see first-hand, the difference having dental implants makes to a patient. Sadly, some patients have allowed their phobia of dental treatment to prevent them from seeking help, but the team here are so friendly, we focus on making the whole experience as comfortable as possible whilst providing excellent patient care.”
The team offer free dental implant consultations for patients who would like to consider replacing missing teeth or loose dentures.
