The-Smile-Suite-Award-Wining-Orthodontics Welcome to our
luxurious specialist, implant & referral centre

To best protect the safety of our colleagues and patients during the current outbreak of COVID-19, we have taken the decision to suspend all but emergency dental care across our dental practices.

That means if you have a routine appointment at a {my}dentist practice in the coming weeks it will unfortunately need to be cancelled and we will contact you to arrange an alternative date.

If you are experiencing a dental emergency, such as severe dental pain, please call your local practice who will advise you what to do.

Your safety, and that of our team is our top priority, so please do not attend practices in person for any reason unless you are asked to do so.

The SmileSuite - Implant & imaging referral centre Bristol

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root used to support restorations that resemble a tooth or group of teeth. Implants can be used to:

  • Replace a single missing tooth
  • Form part of a bridge filling larger gaps
  • Secure dentures firmly
  • Create a full set of new teeth.

What to expect

Our surgeons have a huge amount of skill and experience in the field of implants. You can be assured that you are in very safe hands. Following your assessment visit you will be given a written treatment plan which details all the necessary stages and associated costs.

We use the latest implant planning software to ensure we achieve the optimum results.

The procedure in which the implants are placed is carried out under local anaesthesia and the recovery is generally very quick.

If you lost your teeth a long time ago,  we often find that there has been too much shrinkage of the jaw bone to support implants. However, this needn’t be a problem, as our surgeons are skilled in techniques to regenerate the bone before placing implants.

Dr Andrew Hall uses a new technology to speed the recovery following implantology named PRGF (Plasma Rich in Growth Factor). The process of implantology is invasive and leaves a small wound in the soft connective tissues of the gum and underlying jaw bone. With any wound, the body produces a special set of proteins which act at the site of the wound to stimulate the body's own natural repair process. Using PRGF technology, we are able to isolate these healing proteins from a small sample of the patient's blood and apply them directly to the area of the wound to accelerate the healing process.

After the implants have healed in the jaw we can fit the abutments and then commence the treatment to construct the permanent replacements. This can take several visits to ensure that we get the best possible results.

After the new teeth are fitted it is essential that you look after them and keep them spotlessly clean. Our staff will show you how to  do this as we want your new set of teeth to last you a lifetime.
