Modern dentistry has come a long way in recent years, and surgeries such as the award winning Parrock Dental and Implant Centre have embraced this new technology to the full while never forgetting that our patients are the most important element in the whole equation. Our well-equipped surgery can offer the full range of dental treatments, from a simple cleaning to complex full mouth rehabilitations using advanced techniques such as dental implants in Kent.
Every patient is important, as we understand that everyone wants to have the very best smile they can. We have seen first-hand the difference it can make to someone’s self-confidence when they know their teeth are looking the very best they can. You are always assured of a warm welcome, and our staff never judge, even if you haven’t felt able to visit the dentist for a number of years.
Nervous Patients Receive a Warm Welcome at Parrock Street
We know that a lot of people find visiting the dentist an ordeal, and aim to put these patients at their ease. You’ll find our surgery has been designed to be non-threatening as we want everyone to feel as relaxed as possible during treatment. If you are particularly nervous then we do urge you to discuss this with our staff, and with Dr Rik Trevidi, as we have lots of ways to help you feel able to cope with treatment. Some of our very best smile makeovers have been carried out on patients who haven’t been to the dentist for many years, and the results can literally be life changing.
All treatments can be carried out at a pace you feel comfortable with, and we’ll make sure you receive the correct level of sedation so you don’t feel nervous. We usually find that once people have regained their dental health they lose some or even all their fears of visiting the dentist. Having good oral health should make it easier for you to visit our surgery at regular intervals for preventative dental care. Being in good dental health can have huge benefits, not only for your self-confidence, but also for general health. In contrast, being in poor oral health can increase the likelihood of developing serious general health conditions, in particular heart disease and diabetes. If you already have these conditions then it could make them worse.
If you’re ready to take the plunge and book an appointment, then you can call our dentist in Kent on 01414 537191, or if you’d prefer you can email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
Dental Implants vs Denture
Irene wore a denture for her missing front tooth. She also had a tooth that needed replacing and poor crowns on her top teeth. After planning in one appointment her smile was trandformed with implants placed and beautiful temporary teeth that mimicked the final smile. After healing and adjustments the final teeth were fitted.
What to Expect on Your Implant Journey
Step 1: Dental Implant Consultation
At this initial appointment we discuss:
- Your wish list
- The benefits of dental implant treatment and considerations.
- Whether it be for restoring missing teeth/gaps, improving chewing, replacing dentures and failed bridges or preventing bone loss, dental implants usually are the best long-term option for these situations.
- We take necessary X-rays, impressions and other data required for diagnosis and treatment planning.
Step 2: Diagnosis & Treatment Planning
At this appointment X-rays and other diagnostic information is discussed and a treatment plan is formulated, discussed and approved by you. A CT Scan maybe taken if necessary.
Step 3: Diagnostic Preview & Surgical Template
From the diagnostic information a surgical template is made for precise placement of dental implants in the mouth and a diagnostic preview of the final result is made and approved by you for a predictable and pleasing end result.
Step 4: Dental Implant Placement
At this appointment we place your dental Implants and provide you with a temporary restoration based on the agreed diagnostic preview to restore your smile and function whilst your dental implants are healing.
Step 5: Final Restoration Fit
After the dental implants have healed (usually between 3 to 6 months after placement) the final implant supported restorations (crowns, bridges or dentures) are fitted and tweaked to your satisfaction
Step 6: Review and Celebration
At this appointment we review and verify you are happy with your new smile and celebrate your renewed confidence with chewing and smiling.
