Dental implants

Serving patients throughout Gaywood, Kings Lynn, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire

Dental implant treatment can change your life. Whether you’re replacing a single tooth, or a complete smile, dental implants offer secure teeth that feel just like your own, restoring both your smile and your quality of life.

Not only can implants recreate natural-looking teeth, but they also safeguard your overall dental health. Replacing missing teeth is extremely important, as missing teeth cause bone loss which will age your face and could potentially cause adjacent teeth to become loose too.

At Lynn Road Dental Practice we can assist with all implant cases, from the simplest to the most complex. Our patients have the peace of mind that they can access progressive technology and benefit from a wealth of experience from our implant dentist, Brais Vila Brana .

What is a dental implant?

Putting it simply, a dental implant is an artificial root made from titanium which is used to take the place of the original root, securely bonding with the jawbone over time. Once the new root has fully healed, which usually takes between 3 to 6 months, this is used to attach replacement teeth in place using crowns, a bridge or a denture. These replacement teeth are carefully crafted to ensure they match your natural teeth, leaving you with a beautiful, natural looking smile.

Types of implant

  • Single implant – implants can be used to replace a single tooth, restoring your smile with a single implant and crown.
  • Multiple implants – if you have a gap from a few missing teeth, dental implants can be placed to securely fix a dental bridge in place.
  • Full smile restorations – If you are missing a full arch of teeth, or the full set, 4 to 8 implants can be placed to securely attach a denture. Anchoring dentures on dental implants ensure that they do not slip and are comfortable.

Why choose dental implants?

Crowns, bridges and dentures address the short-term cosmetic problem of missing teeth but do nothing to stop bone loss. Crown and bridge dentistry also requires grinding down healthy teeth leaving them at much greater risk for cavities and tooth failure. Dentures become uncomfortable and unstable over time as the jawbone shrinks causing eating and speech problems.

With dental implants, replacement teeth are securely anchored without compromising any neighbouring healthy teeth. Dental implants, like natural teeth, stimulate the jaw and stop bone loss.

Dental Implants Components

The benefits of implants

  • Implants look and feel just like natural teeth – you shouldn’t notice any difference.
  • Implants provide permanent stability and comfort without affecting healthy teeth.
  • Implants won’t come loose or fall out.
  • Implants can last for many years if you maintain good oral hygiene.
  • Implants prevent ageing bone loss, by stimulating your bone structure and stabilising the surrounding teeth.

Are you suitable for treatment?

Patients must have healthy gums and enough jawbone to support dental implants. At your initial consultation Brais Vila Brana will use x-rays and scans to establish if pre-treatment is required and will explain this further.

Some patients may need to see a hygienist for a course of treatment to ensure their gums are strong and healthy before the dental implant process can begin. Brais will also check that there is sufficient bone for an implant to be placed successfully at this initial consultation. If there is insufficient bone you may need to need pre-treatment before your dental implants can be placed. This may include oral surgery procedures such as bone grafting, bone expansion or sinus lifts.

We followed Nadia from Peterborough.... Best dentist I have ever had - including those that I went to in the United States. I have a phobia of needles and her technique and efficiency is outstanding. The anaesthetic is taking effect before I even realise she has injected me!! Both Nadia and her dental nurse Barbara, practice at a high standard and with the utmost professionalism. You never feel rushed once you're in the chair, and if she's running late she ensures this is communicated to you and is apologetic. We drive over 25 miles to see her at Lynn Dental and would follow her anywhere!

I've been in for an emergency appointment today, also registered and signed up to your plan. I'm very anxious about the dentist but every member of staff I came into contact with was just excellent. Tina took my call this morning and was really welcoming, friendly and informative, she put me at ease about coming to the practice. When I arrived it was Tina that greeted me, she remembered me and gave me all the relevant forms and info about the plan for me to make a decision. She explained that as I was registering with the practice today, she would be able to start my plan immediately and save me a few pounds. Jay and the dental nurse with him (sorry I didn't catch her name) were really welcoming and patient, listened to my concerns and my tooth issue. Jay asked me questions about my job to try and relax me before having a look in my mouth. They were informative and laid out a clear plan of action for my treatment. I saw Gemma when I came out to book a future appointment and she was as equally helpful and kind. She was patient and answered my questions. Thank you for being so understanding. I've never had a good relationship with the dentist because I've always been so anxious and avoided going if I could. I am now feeling much more confident to visit your practice again and won't be too scared to pick the phone up in the future.

An excellent dental practice I am a very nervous patient and Dr Khem Joshi and his nurses make me feel so comfortable and are very patient and helpful. I couldn't be happier as I have had to have quite a bit of dental work done and I have a major fear of dentists. All staff are always friendly too.

I have been going since I was just a baby (I’m 21 now) I’ve seen all the changes happen to this place. I used to see a dentist called mark who I believe retired and I am now with Brias, and when I had to change dentist he made me feel very at ease. He is a great dentist and highly recommend him he is very good at making you feel comfortable. He also always seems to work this the same nurse (Tracy I believe her name is) she is super kind and knows just what to say to keep you calm highly recommend

I only signed up here on the 13th May, and I’ve already managed to have an examination, 2 fillings done and been booked in with the hygienist. My dentist Jolanta is so so lovely, as somebody that suffers with anxiety I really struggle to maintain calm during appointments, but she always manages to make me feel at ease, she keeps me well informed on the procedure and makes sure I’m comfortable, I can’t thank her enough, she’s amazing! It is a little bit expensive but you can’t put a price on good dental health, it’s so so important.

I had to see a dentist as over lockdown some of my teeth fell apart. Dr. Patel is new, but he is just the best. I felt nothing, while had 5 teeth removed. Every appointment was well planned and no time waisted/ 100% satisfied.

Cant recommend this surgery enough.

So glad I gave this practice a try. I haven’t seen a dentist for a few years but this was totally different to my last NHS dental practice. They had time to explain what needed doing, without judgement, and it was honestly the best dental experience I’ve ever had.

After losing our dentist in town, and hunting for a new one, I was recommended to phone Lynn Road. I spoke with the reception over the phone and was made to feel very welcome, and my son too. All schemes advised up front. I had a courtesy call a few days before, again informing the procedure for not arriving too early etc. We arrived on time, not early or late. We did have to wait outside, which I understand, but found a little difficult to complete all forms with the wind, but it is what it is in this pandemic. The lady on the door was apologetic about waiting, and very friendly. Once inside the friendly nurse took us through and we met Jay. He was a very friendly, patient, kind man, and took great lengths to make sure my son was ok every step of the way. They listened and chatted and made is both welcome and it was our time. Thank you to all the team we met. I'm very pleased we have joined your practice.

although unable to take on any new nhs patients the private payment plans are very affordable and the reception staff were great at explaining all the details to me ! i haven’t been to the dentist in 5 years and suffer badly from anxiety but the care and treatment i’ve received so far has been without fault. my hygienist was very skilled, supportive and informative - i’m over the moon with the results of my treatment. it’s safe to say i feel a lot less anxious for my further dental treatments ! very quick at arranging appointments without a long wait and you don’t have to wait for long in the waiting room either 10/10 :)

Absolutely Fantastic Dentist!! I made a big mistake by not going to the Dentists for over 25 years so after trying 2 other dentists who I didnt rate I came here..They have basically saved my teeth and with a kind and friendly attitude to your needs Lynn Road Dental Practice is highly recommended by myself!! I am Private with them but they have very affordable schemes and finance. I tried to ignore my teeth and just brushed them twice a day but after Time they let you know they need attention and fallout with you..Literally
