The Practice named The Centre for Implant and Reconstructive Dentistry has emerged from a general dental practice providing comprehensive care for patients over the last twenty five years. The practice has now evolved into a referral practice undertaking oral rehabilitation for a broad range of patients. The practice is in a primary care setting in a specially designed premises. Patients occasionally find their way to us recommended by other patients or via our web site, the majority of the patients come to us referred by other dentists. These referrals may be secondary referrals or tertiary and even quaternary referrals on occasion.
The ethos of the practice originates from the concept of total patient care entrenched in general dental practice. Comprehensive assessment of the patient is undertaken and treatment that is appropriate to the local oral health, general health as well as the social circumstances of the patient is proposed. The range of oral rehabilitation that is undertaken on the premises varies considerably. It is largely implant based. Aspects of dentistry not commonly practiced on the premises are referred to appropriate specialists. Replacement of single teeth which can be aesthetically exacting in the front of the mouth is undertaken as well as more advanced treatment. Patients are often referred when advanced disease processes have taken their toll and treatment may involve the reconstruction of the jaws prior to restoration using implants and fixed restorations. Implant supported removable restorations are also used providing patients with tremendous benefit with minimal intervention. Both the surgical and the prosthodontics aspects of treatment are undertaken. Those patients referred only for surgery are sent back to their dentist for restorative phase of the treatment
The aim of the practice is to provide care to a very high standard, which is suited to the patients’ needs. The care of the patient remains a primary concern and wherever possible treatment specific to the patient without compromise is provided.
Comprehensive care for the patients.
These are healthy and functioning well after all this time and are a testament to the longevity of our implants.
By recommendation by another patient - Patients who have previously had treatment often recommend us to their family and friends. We then work with their General Dental Practitioner to make sure that comprehensive treatment is always provided.
