Dental Implants at Arden House

Ian and Sarah have placed hundreds of dental implants. With many years experience, and post graduate training you are in safe hands. Ian trained at the prestigious Straumann Institute in Switzerland and Sarah completed her training at the world renowned Eastman Dental Institute right here in London. For many years Arden House has been a referral centre for patients across Gloucestershire and the South West and their friendly and straightforward style is well known and loved.

Mr. Jerry Farrier, a local Oral and Maxillofacial Consultant is also part of the team, enabling us to treat and advise even the most complex of cases.

Whether simple or complicated, between us we have probably seen it before so you can be assured of an honest, realistic opinion – explained in a straightforward way you’ll understand. In our hands this is a gentle technique and the dental implant success rate speaks for itself.  

At Arden House Dental we know that no one wants to loose teeth. Dentures and bridges can be excellent replacements but for many people these are a frustrating second choice – they want their teeth back! 

With dental implants you can :

  • improve your smile
  • laugh and kiss with confidence
  • eat all the foods you enjoy
  • speak with greater ease
  • enjoy an active lifestyle
  • improve your health

Implants can be used to totally replace dentures. They can also be used to stabilise them by providing a solid base on to which they can "click" home. 

Where some teeth remain, a partial denture is sometimes seen as the only option.  Now, as few as two implants can be linked together to form a stable fixed bridge - without causing damage to the remaining teeth.

If you have lost a single tooth, an implant and crown can avoid the need for a conventional bridge.

With dental implants you can smile, laugh and eat with confidence. Even biting into an apple will not cause discomfort or embarrassment. 

At your initial consultation, Sarah or Ian will take time to talk with you and assess your individual requirements. Everyone is different – your biology, when you lost the tooth even your job helps to make you unique. Our skill and experience in placing dental implants means we can take all of these things into account and suggest a treatment plan that meets your needs. We will clearly set out all your options, the fees and timescales involved.

  • OsseoSpeed™- a unique fluoride-modified nanostructure implant surface that stimulates early bone formation and speeds up the bone healing process.
