Why endure a reduced quality of life without restoring gaps?
A lot of us may lose one, two or even several teeth during our lifetime due to gum disease or accidents and this can have the following implications:
Restrict the types of food you are able to eat, ultimately affecting your overall diet
Restrict your ability to bite certain foods, restricting the types of food you are able to eat, ultimately affecting your overall diet
Affect your ability to speak clearly, limiting your ability to communicate effectively and reducing your self-confidence
Create an unsightly smile, making you reluctant to smile or forcing you to cover your smile with your hands or objects and reducing your self-confidence
At the Oatlands Dental Lounge we have several options for replacing one or several teeth. Your dentist will conduct a full assessment so that we can discuss which tooth replacement option is best for you.
When a number of teeth are missing, there are various options available. You may choose to have a denture. But over time, your gums will recede and the denture may not fit as well. You could choose to have implants to secure the denture. One way is a small number of implants with a bar and magnets to hold the denture another is a small number of implants to which the denture is secured or a greater number of implants onto which a set of teeth and permanently fitted.
Often denture wearers complain of denture movement particularly when eating or even talking!
Precision attachments can be the answer. When the crown is made, a small slot is created into which a tab, attached to the denture, fits perfectly This ensures a secure and movement-free denture.
A number of implants may be used to secure a lower denture. A hole is made in the jaw bone for each Implant. The Implant is placed and a healing cap fitted. The gum is replaced while the bone recovers. Access to the Implant is made and the second part of the Implant is attached. Tiny magnets in the denture then keep it securely in place.
When our son had a traumatic bicycle accident and the old family dentist let us down really badly after a night in A&E, Neil and his staff were simply amazing. This caring, happy, approachable team rapidly organised emergency treatment and set out a plan of action which produced results we barely dared hope were possible. To say they worked a minor miracle is no small understatement (thank you to you all).From the moment you step into reception you feel welcome and at ease, and that sets the tone for whatever your appointment entails.All of us are moving to Oatlands Dental Lounge, and I can now personally recommend Sarah the hygienist as well as Neil.My only regret is that we didn't find them sooner.
The Dentist kept me calm and was super reassuring. Felt NO PAIN at all, not even for the local anaesthetic in the gums. He ensured to answer ALL my questions and saved me from the agony I had in my teeth and headboard have for over a week. He has done what no other dentist has ever done for me. Reassurance, no pain and asked for a follow up. I will definitely use him again.
Oatlands dental lounge has been absolutely outstanding with helping me with fixing my teeth. Neil is amazing and has not only transformed my teeth but restored confidence and professional advice for my teeth. I have received orthodontics and a brace, which I am absolutely over the moon with the results and care from doctor George. Not only medically treating me and restoring my teeth, the hygienist appointments at this clinic are insane, the difference is amazing and my teeth have never looked and felt better. I cannot express how much the dental surgery has helped me.
I had an amazing experience with Neil. He is very professional. He did my front teeth and they look better than ever! I also visit hygienist here regularly and the experience is always very positive. Everyone is very helpful and friendly! Highly recommend!
I highly recommend Omesh and the team at Oatlands for oral surgery. As a nervous dental patient, I’d been putting off having all 4 wisdom teeth extracted until I met with Omesh. His calm & informative approach made the whole process smooth, comfortable and full of genuine care. I’ve been impressed (and relieved!) to have had a pain free experience using sedation & I’ve also been so grateful for the post procedure care too. Thank you so much!
Having had a terrible cosmetic dentistry experience with another dentist in Bristol a few years ago - I was pretty nervous to start the process again. I decided to go with Oatlands after reading their excellent patient reviews and I am so, so glad I did! Neil has been absolutely amazing throughout the whole process of getting my veneers. He really listened to what I wanted to achieve, was honest and professional, and ensured perfection throughout. I couldn't be happier with the service or the results - thank you Neil & the team!
