20 years of using implants
Dental implants are now widely accepted as a safe and predictable method of replacing missing teeth and they have many advantages over the alternatives not least of which is the avoidance of damage to adjacent teeth. We have now been placing and restoring implants here for 20 years and over that time we have amassed a wealth of experience in every aspect of implant treatment.
96% Cumulative survival rate
We have an ongoing audit of all implants placed here since 2004 and I am delighted to be able to say that our survival rate for about 2000 implants is 96.7%. These implants have been used to restore anything from a single tooth to a full arch. We restore edentulous mandibles on 4 implants and maxillas on 6. Full lower over-dentures are usually retained on 2 implants and full upper over-dentures on a minimum of 4 implants.
Would you like to restore implants?
A number of dentists who refer patients here now restore themselves and if you want to be involved we can provide full training and mentoring to GDC standards. Any dentist is capable of learning to restore implants and all those who do say that they find it very interesting and rewarding.
We are delighted to welcome Dr Sarah Steele to St Pauls. Many of you may know Sarah who has worked in Southport for many years. She is currently studying for a master’s degree in endodontics and will be pleased to accept any referrals for endodontic treatments including re-root treatment. She is very knowledgeable and uses the latest equipment, including a microscope, aiming to provide the best possible outcome.
