At VICI Dental, we strive to offer our patients as many dental treatment options as are available to us. Dental Implants are fast becoming the go-to method for replacing missing teeth.
A dental implant is a prosthetic replacement of the root of a missing tooth. Replacing the tooth’s root gives longer-term stability, resulting in halting natural bone loss and increasing future treatment potential.
Dr Andy Pritchard (GDC No. 244448) graduated from Manchester Dental School with a clinical research prize. His career in restorative and implant dentistry – through training at some of the country’s most prestigious centres – has been symbolic of his commitment to professionalism and delivering exceptional dental care.
Dr Andy received the gold standard in implant dentistry training at the PID Academy under one of the country’s leading implant dentists, Ashok Sethi, the founding member of the UK Association of Dental Implantology. Since then, Andy has completed many successful cases, from full mouth rehabilitations to highly focused placements in the aesthetic zone.
Restoring his patient’s smiles has been a hugely rewarding aspect of implant dentistry for Andy. He believes in implementing a system of care that places the person and their social wellbeing at the centre of decision making to achieve optimal oral and general health.
Andy often shares his passion for dentistry amongst colleagues within the profession. He helps run study clubs and teaching modules on advanced restorative courses to enable other dentists to reach their potential.
The tooth’s root is replaced with a screw-like device integrated into the jaw bone, leaving you with a stable foundation to build upon. Although this may sound drastic, treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic so you will not feel any pain.
After a comprehensive consultation, we will advise you as to your most appropriate treatment option for long-term success and reliability. We currently offer:
Single Tooth Implants are as written. They replace a single missing tooth. A single tooth implant is an excellent option for patients who do not wish to have a bridge or denture to replace a missing tooth. Implants are also a good investment option. Should adjacent teeth be lost in the future, they can be added to the implant without further implant surgery.
All-on-Four/All-on-Six Same Day Teeth are used for replacing several or all teeth in an arch. In most cases, treatment is completed on the same day and ready for immediate use. The All-on-Four/All-on-Six treatment advantages include less need for bone grafting, reduced healing time, reduced cost, and increased success rate for complete arch treatment.
Implant Retained Dentures are an excellent option for those already used to dentures but long for more secure stability. Implant retained dentures use implants that attach to a denture – much like a pop button – which holds dentures in place during day-to-day activities. These are especially effective to lower dentures which have reduced suction retention.
