Dentures or bridges are not the only options available to you if you have missing teeth. These options can be suitable in some situations, but it is best to understand the full range of choices that are available to you, so that you can make the right decision for yourself both in the short and long term.

Dental implants are a suitable option long term for many and can also be a means of securing dentures if you find them to be slipping and uncomfortable. Come in and speak with a dentist in West Byfleet regarding your personal situation with your missing teeth, so you can find out how dental implants can improve the quality of your life.

What are dental implants?

A dental implant is actually a titanium metal rod that is surgically placed into your jawbone and left to fuse with your actual bone. This essentially replaces the tooth root which is the reason behind the longevity and success of the treatment. It can last for several decades once completed, so in some cases can be the option for a lifetime of a lot of our patients.

If you have lost several teeth, thankfully you do not need to have several implants. We can attach a bridge to the titanium rod, on which we can secure two, three and even sometimes four teeth. This is dependent on your situation, so come in and speak with a dentist in West Byfleet to see what unique treatment plan we can create for you.

What happens if I already have dentures?

That’s great. We are happy you have taken the step to ensuring that you can eat and speak properly by using dentures as a means of replacing your teeth. However, we understand that over time they can begin to slip, making you self-conscious in social settings, in case your teeth slip and fall out when you are eating or speaking.

This is commonly due to your jawbone receding, a natural occurrence as your body no longer recognises that you have or need a complete jawbone. This can also result in premature ageing of your face, as your cheeks appear sunken and other complications.

A dentist in West Byfleet can stabilise your dentures using dental implants in combination with some prior treatment should you need it. If you don't have enough jawbone to complete the implant surgery, we may recommend that you replace some of the bone using a bone graft.

By using animal, human or synthetic tissue, we can graft bone into place and allow this to heal. We can then continue on with a denture stabilisation procedure that uses four implants placed around your mouth to secure your dentures in place.

Otherwise known as all-on-four or same day teeth, owing to the fact that this can be completed in a day, this treatment is designed to give you back your freedom in a comfortable way, so that you can carry on with life, without worrying about your dentures.

A dentist in West Byfleet is able to bring out the true beauty of your smile for all to see. If you are not happy with how your smile looks and want to improve it in some way for your oral health as well as your self-confidence, then we warmly invite you to speak with a member of our team at Byfleet Dental Boutique to create a bespoke treatment plan that is right for you.

Cosmetic dentistry is a vast field, ranging from short-term treatments that can be completed during a lunch time appointment, through to procedures that are ongoing for years. Your smile is one of the first features that others are aware of, so make sure it is the best it can be by perfecting it.

When you come in to speak to your local dentist in West Byfleet, you will find yourself in an inviting and relaxing environment where you can discuss your oral health goals. Only by understanding what it is you want to achieve can we find the solution that suits you.

We can begin by ensuring that your teeth, gums and mouth in general are healthy and suggest treatments that might be applicable to your situation. Together we will create a treatment plan that can focus on the issues that are important to you and best for your overall oral health.

What are some of the treatments that we can offer?

Having a healthy looking smile is on top of many of our patients’ wish lists. This can usually start by ensuring teeth are white and clean. A hygienist is able to remove much of the unsightly tartar and plaque that builds up on teeth and is a culprit of bad breath. Other stains can be removed with a teeth whitening procedure.

We will analyse your stains to determine whether a whitening treatment is suitable to remove them. There are instances, such as with some dental treatments, medications and natural occurrences, where whitening your teeth will not have the effect you are looking for.

If this is the case, never fear for your dentist in West Byfleet has other tricks up their sleeve!

Dental veneers can hide unsightly issues that other treatments cannot. Chips, cracks, stains and broken teeth can all be hidden away under a porcelain veneer which can last for upwards of 10 years.

You may also suffer from an uneven gum line, short teeth or a gapped smile which can easily and quickly be corrected with this treatment. These veneers are glued onto the outer surface of your teeth to create a picture-perfect smile in as little as just a few appointments. It is perhaps the quickest way in which you can obtain the smile of your dreams.

We have a huge range of treatments that can transform your smile from dull to dazzling. We look forward to seeing what we can do to help you obtain that smile you have always wanted to be able to share with those around you.

A modern day dentist in West Byfleet focuses heavily on preventive care, so that their patients are able to enjoy more time with their original teeth. Having your own teeth is by far the best option, especially when they are free from cavities and strong.

By coming in to visit your dentist in West Byfleet twice yearly and at the same time booking a cleaning with a hygienist, you are taking great steps towards ensuring your smile is fully functional for life. We want to provide you with every opportunity to enjoy your smile, so by offering treatments designed to support your oral health, we make sure both you and your family can enjoy excellent dental health for as much of the time as possible.

What are some preventive measures?

Preventive treatments are designed for both adults and children and a lot of it comes down to education. The best preventive step that you can take to keep your smile bright and healthy is to know how to brush and floss your teeth properly. You also need to do this twice daily.

By knowing what foods and drinks are harmful to your teeth and gums and why, you can also take significant preventive measures to protect your teeth. Understanding that every single tooth is armoured with enamel and they work together as an army against constant attack from sugars and bacteria, you can start to understand the constant battle that goes on inside your mouth.

By keeping that enamel armour strong and ensuring that every soldier is correctly in line with the others, you are helping your army of teeth to win the fight.

When your teeth are not correctly aligned, bad bacteria can build up in hard to reach places, causing enamel erosion and bad breath. When, unfortunately, you lose a tooth due to an accident or poor oral health, other teeth are compromised so it is important to replace them quickly.

What are some preventive treatments available?

A dentist in West Byfleet can add fluoride directly to your or your child’s teeth, so that they remain mineralised and strong. Fluoride is important to keep your enamel strong, so that it can continue to prevent cavities from damaging your teeth.

Fissure sealants are a way of ensuring that hard to reach places on your teeth are covered and protected from common cavities. This is especially important in young children where their new adult teeth are so vulnerable, and it will last them their lifetime.

We understand it can be difficult for little ones to brush in the deep grooves of their molar teeth and this is a common place where cavities form. By adding a fissure sealant over these grooves, they are filled in and protected from harm.

This is an easy and effective preventive measure that we can take to make sure that your children’s teeth can remain healthy for life. It is so disheartening to see young teeth full of cavities, as this is a bad indicator for oral health in the future.

Let us do what we can together to improve your oral health now and in the future.
