DENTAL IMPLANTS AT FITZ PARK DENTAL PRACTICE
People can lose teeth for a great variety of reasons – be it a physical accident, dental decay, gum disease or natural causes. Losing teeth can be traumatic and upsetting, and you may wish to consider dental implants.
The dental implants process will begin by you coming in to Fitz Park Dental Practice for a CT scan or X-ray – this will determine the size and structure of your jawbone, allowing us to select the implant which most suits your needs. The dental implants being inserted require minor surgery which usually involves local anaesthesia to numb the gum and prevent discomfort.
Dental implants are tooth titanium devices that are placed into the jaw bone, supporting either a false tooth/bridge or denture. The titanium implants integrate with the jaw bone, providing just as much strength and stability as normal teeth.
Fitz Park Dental Practice can replace individual teeth with a single dental implant, or multiple teeth using dental bridges or dentures.
You may not be suitable for dental implants if you have a history of bad oral hygiene or gum disease, as these are high risk factors to implants failing.
Once implants are fitted, a strict oral hygiene routine must be kept to. Smokers are requested to either quit completely or not smoke for two weeks following surgery.
If you suffer discomfort after the surgery, painkillers such as paracetamol can be taken. You may also be prescribed antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection.
At Fitz Park Dental Practice, you can have confidence that our team are experienced and skilled, having placed dental implants in patients for almost ten years. Should your requirements be particularly complex and you need an added procedure such as bone or gum grafting, we are able to proceed with this work in-house.
With only four dental implants, the All-on-4® treatment concept can restore a complete jaw of missing teeth.
This technique offers you several advantages:
Shorter treatment time, lower costs
The low number of implants needed for the All-on-4® treatment concept considerably reduces treatment time and often makes this solution more cost-effective than comparable treatment alternatives.
Fixed teeth from day one
Depending on your individual dental situation, your dentist can connect your implants to a temporary bridge on the day of surgery. This means you can leave the dental office with a full set of teeth and return to leading a normal life. After a certain healing time, your dentist will exchange your temporary bridge with the final bridge created by a dental laboratory.

Professional/caring staff always providing a great service. Highly recommend this dentist.
For the sake of brevity the conscious dedication and constancy of professionalism at Fitz Park Dental Practice is unequivocally exemplary. From the front of house etiquette to the highly skilled dentistry the emphasis is focused on the single minded loyalty to the customer and patient care.
Excellent service and standards as usual with a reassuring team having been a patient of Simon's for a number of years.
I have been attending the Fitz Park Practice for several years now and have yet to have cause for complaint. I am presently going through the process of having an implant. At every stage Simon has carefully explained what's happening in relation to the whole process. All seems to be going well. The hygienist I see is excellent, particularly as she gives me plenty of advice to help me care for my teeth. My one regret is that this didn't happen 40 years ago! In terms of recommendation the fact that my wife has recently transferred to the practice show how confident we are in the care provided.
Since moving to Keswick 14 years ago, my wife and I have had excellent dental advice, care and treatment. Simon has a very good team from, receptionist through to examination, hygienist and treatment and we always feel that they have an interest in what is in the best for the patient. Highly recommended.
Treatment this morning with Simon; as professional and caring as ever. The whole team are impressive in their efficiency and good humour - I cannot recommend them highly enough.
