A Sunnier Smile For Summer

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Seasonal barbecues, summer weddings and even holiday snaps are problematic for millions of people in the UK who have at least one missing tooth.

Summer brings with it events and activities to make those with missing teeth self conscious. Visible gaps show up in family photos and can’t be hidden by even the biggest of wedding day hats. Barbecued food plays havoc with loose or ill-fitting dentures.

Dr Sanjay Sethi of the Square Mile Dental Centre in London says, “There is a solution, and it is a lot more accessible than many people realise. Dental implants are the treatment of choice for anyone with one or more missing teeth, filling gaps with teeth that look and feel as natural as the real thing. Implants also avoid the problems associated with dentures and bridges, such as weakening other teeth and bone loss.”

Patient website speeds up the process of getting teeth implants by putting patients directly in touch with their nearest implant dentist. There is no need for a referral from your own dentist. Patients simply use the search facility to find the dentist they want and contact them directly via the online facility.

Dr Sethi adds: “The treatment involves having a titanium implant in the jaw bone, which needs to be left to integrate with the bone for up to three months before a permanent tooth replacement can be attached. Once complete, the implant acts just as a normal tooth would. With good oral hygiene it is a permanent solution needing no further treatment.”

Dental implants are by far the best solution to missing teeth, and accessing them has never been easier. The patient website was created so that anyone wanting a tooth implant can easily find and contact their nearest implant dentist and speed up the process of getting treatment.

Over 100 dentists and dental clinics, throughout the UK, offering dental implants are listed on the online directory,

Dental implants are overwhelmingly a private treatment as the procedure is only available on the NHS if there is a medical need. However, according to the British Dental Health Foundation patient information leaflet on dental implants, “Over the longer term, implants are usually a more cost-effective and satisfactory option.”

Dental implants: A dental implant is a titanium rod used to replace lost or failing tooth roots, to provide support for replacement teeth. They can be used to replace missing or failing teeth, support single crowns and fixed bridges, retain full dentures and to replace full and partial dentures.

Patient advantages: Dental implants mean an end to uncomfortable dentures and loose bridgework. Dental implants look and function like natural teeth, increasing the patient’s confidence of a completely natural smile. Patients are left able to eat, talk, smile, laugh and kiss with confidence. Facial and gum vitality are maintained.

Clinical advantages: With dental implants there is no need to damage the adjacent teeth as there is with conventional bridge work. Implants are as firm as natural teeth, can last a lifetime, and are cost-effective in the long term. Continued use of the supporting bone prevents the shrinking associated with conventional denture use.

DENTSPLY Implants is the implant division of DENTSPLY Inc, the world’s most prolific supplier of specialist materials used in dentistry. The company is campaigning to make implant treatment more accessible to dental patients throughout the UK. In addition to providing direct access to implant dentists online via , the company is helping to make the option of dental implant treatment more widely available through patients’ own dentists. It supports training for patients’ general dental practitioner to undertake the final restoration in straightforward referred cases, as well as comprehensive courses on the surgical placement of dental implants.
