We were recently treated to a press cutting that Dr Steve Byfield had kept from 1999 when he worked at a practice in Ripon.

The story covers a revolutionary new treatment involving replacing a full set of teeth with dental implants in just one day.

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.

There is little doubt that the “gold standard” way to replace a missing tooth is with a dental implant. They are very durable and completely independent of the adjacent teeth, which makes them by far the healthiest option, especially when compared to more conventional tooth supported bridges. As a way of securing dentures, they come into their own; loose dentures which can barely bite through soft bread can be transformed into teeth which can bite into an apple! No more fixative!

Reconstructive Dentistry is the term used for the treatment of patients who have experienced advanced dental disease.

Symptoms range from loose, missing or decayed teeth, increasing tooth spacing (especially in the front of the mouth), to very worn teeth and the inability to chew food properly. Reconstructive Dentistry is the treatment used to return the patient back to dental heath and restore tooth function and aesthetics.

Dental implants were first introduced to help people who had lost all of their natural teeth, but had great difficulty with dentures (false teeth) because they had lost too much jawbone for the dentures to rest on securely.

Today, most dental implants are used to replace either a single tooth or multiple missing teeth. This means that modern implants have to come in a variety of shapes and sizes to suit the different teeth that they replace. Their surfaces have been improved to enhance the integration process and their success (or more appropriately “survival”) rates are in the region of 94% at five years. Dental implants are widely accepted as a more successful and conservative option to fixed bridgework – but are they better than natural teeth?
