Dentsply Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a permanent solution for your missing teeth.

A dental implant is essentially a substitute for a natural root and commonly it is screw or cylinder shaped. Each implant is placed into a socket carefully drilled at the precise location of the intended tooth. Often the implant can be placed at the same time as removal of the tooth, all on the same day.

If an implant has a screw-thread on its outer surface it can be screwed into position and if it does not, it is usually tapped into place. The main aim during installation of any implant is to achieve immediate close contact with the surrounding bone. This creates an initial stability, which over time is steadily enhanced by further growth of bone into microscopic roughnesses on the implant surface.

In order to support replacement teeth, dental implants normally have some form of internal screw thread or post space that allows a variety of components to be fitted. Once fitted, these components provide the foundation for long-term support of crowns, bridges or dentures. Click here for illustrated information.

Invisible Braces

Crooked teeth? Would you like them straighter?

It’s never too late to have straighter teeth as an adult. Orthodontics is now for everyone! Many people often think that if you don’t have treatment as a child that nothing can be done – not true! Some can be put off by the thought of wearing unsightly ‘train-track’ braces for up to 3 years – but there is no need to worry!

Cherry Trees Dental in Linslade, Leighton Buzzard offer a variety of solutions to help patients achieve the smiles they’ve always wanted. Patients want removable, invisible, fast solutions to their crooked teeth and we try to accommodate them when we can. The treatments available at the practice include Invisalign invisible braces and the Inman Aligner.

Invisalign achieves straighter teeth by a series of custom-made “Aligners” that move teeth incrementally. Each set is worn for about two weeks, and then replaced by the next in the series until the final position is achieved.

What are the benefits of Invisalign?

  • It is virtually invisible – you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing.
  • It is removable – you can eat and drink what you want in treatment; you can also brush and floss normally to maintain good oral hygiene.
  • It is tremendously comfortable – there are no metal brackets or wires to cause mouth irritation.
  • They allow you to view your own virtual treatment plan before you start – so you can see how your straight teeth will look when your treatment is complete.

lnvisalign may not be for everyone – when you arrive for your consultation we can advise you on this.

zoom Inman Aligner

The Inman Aligner is the latest in orthodontic technology that can move your teeth to the desired position in as little as 6-16 weeks.

  • The wires are discreet, small and tooth-coloured
  • Discomfort is kept to a minimum as the teeth are gently repositioned
  • Treatment time is reduced by over 50%
  • Price – around half that of alternatives

Frequently Asked Questions

    Q How is it possible to straighten my teeth in so short a time?
    A The Inman Aligner uses the most up-to-date technology and techniques in orthodontics
    Q Will it hurt?
    A There can be discomfort at the beginning of treatment but this is generally mild and you soon get used to it.
    Q Will I need to wear a retainer after treatment?
    A As with all orthodontic treatments your teeth do tend to try and move back. We will supply you with a night-time retainer
    Q How much does it cost?
    A We will need to see you for a consultation to determine this but it is likely to be half that of other orthodontic alternatives

Tooth Whitening

Many of us would like a whiter, brighter smile and at Cherry Trees Dental we can help! Teeth can be discoloured through spicy and highly coloured food and drink such as red wine and curry, tobacco and simply the passage of time.

If you want to change this, all you need to do is come and see us. Once we confirm that you are suitable, we simply manufacture whitening trays which you can use at home with the powerful whitening gel. Everyone is different but you should normally see results within 7 days. Ask us at the practice for more details

Oral Hygiene

At Cherry Trees Dental, preventative dentistry is at the heart of everything that we do. More time spent on hygiene visits and education will mean less time having teeth filled or removed and less cost to you, the patient. Something we’re sure that you will welcome!

Better oral health is recognised as important to the body as a whole and not just the mouth. It is becoming increasingly clear that gum and periodontal disease are linked to heart disease, strokes and diabetes amongst others. More information on this is available here

Make sure that you visit us regularly to ensure tip top oral and overall health.
