Need a specialist dentist in ealing?

At IKON, our team of world class specialists are here for you when you need us most

We have specialists in a wide variety of dental fields so you won’t need to go anywhere else.

Specialist dental services

We provide a range of specialist dental services including orthodontics (abnormalities of the teeth and jaw), endodontics (diseases of the inside of the tooth) periodontology (diseases of the gums and supporting structures of the teeth) and oral surgery. We also have experts in restorative and cosmetic dentistry and facial aesthetics.

Centre of excellence

We are the only specialist dental practice in London to be recognised by VSS Academy as a teaching centre for Master's Degree Programmes in Dentistry from UCLan (the University of Central Lancashire).

Cutting-edge technology

We invest in only the best technology to provide outstanding levels of dental care to all our patients. Digital x-rays for example use extremely low-doses of radiation for improved patient safety while Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) scanning allows for easier and better scanning of the bones and soft tissues. The Trios Intraoral Scanner makes light work of conventional impression taking - swapping messy gag-inducing alginate for state-of-the-art digital scanning while Erb-Chromium Laser therapy makes for gentler treatments, ideal for dental phobic patients.

Complex cases

We specialise in treating patients with complex dental needs and are experts in the oral rehabilitation of patients who require extensive dental treatment. This includes root canal (endodontic) therapy, oral surgery, full smile reconstruction and complex bite problems.

Anxious patients

Looking for a dentist specialist nearby who can help with your dental anxiety or fear? We use the latest conscious sedation techniques to help nervous or anxious patients relax during their visit. This enables patients to receive the dental care they need in a safe and comfortable way.

Honesty and integrity

Our team has created an environment within the local community where innovative dentistry and strong values of honesty and integrity go hand in hand. We are fully committed to providing you with the best service possible in the best way possible.

giving back to the community

It’s what we love to do!

Our dental practice here in Ealing is dedicated to playing a positive role in the local community, donating both locally and globally in ways that change lives. Donations include:

In addition to donating money, our staff also regularly help out at the Ealing Soup Kitchen where willing volunteers regularly feed 60-80 people per session.

We’re proud to be sponsoring the Ealing Half Marathon, voted the UK’s best half-marathon 3 years consecutively. Any money raised is ploughed directly back into projects within the West Ealing, Ealing Broadway and South Ealing areas.

We donate quarterly to Dentaid who, in turn, provides free dental care for homeless and vulnerable people. Dentaid currently operates in over 70 countries providing safe and sustainable dental care for those in need.

The introduction of a dental waste recycling bin at our Ealing dental centre enables patients to donate their used toothbrushes and toothpaste tubes thus preventing them from going into landfill.

outstanding comprehensive dental care

Straighten, Strengthen, Smile

Our goal at IKON Dental Specialists here in Ealing is to provide every patient with the outstanding comprehensive dental care they deserve. We invest in ourselves in order to invest in our patients and regularly share knowledge with our team and our patients. Ultimately, our goal for every patient is to have a beautiful healthy smile that will last a lifetime. Find out more about some of our dental services below:

Invisalign® clear aligners

Removable – Invisalign clear aligners are the hassle-free way to straighten teeth and unlike fixed braces, are designed to be removed every time you eat or drink.

Incredibly discreet - Invisalign aligners are made from BPA-free clear plastic making them appear almost invisible when worn.

Better oral hygiene - Because Invisalign aligners are easily removed, you can brush and floss your teeth as normal without restriction.

Less dental visits – As there are no brackets and wires to adjust, Invisalign patients need fewer dental visits. Even when check-up appointments with our specialist dentist in Ealing are necessary, they remain brief.

Your Invisalign questions answered

  • Is Invisalign better than traditional orthodontic braces?

    Both Invisalign and fixed braces can move teeth efficiently and while traditional braces might be better for more complex tooth movements or bite misalignments, Invisalign provides a better solution for those looking for minor or aesthetic tooth movements. Dr Cholia, our registered specialist in orthodontics will assess your situation and help you to make an informed dental decision. 

  • Can I have Invisalign treatment if I already have dental restorations?

    Yes, it is possible to have Invisalign treatment even when you have existing restorations. While crowns and dental fillings aren’t affected by Invisalign, our specialist orthodontist can  plan movements around your restorations if you already have dental implants. 

  • Does Invisalign treatment hurt?

    In a word, no. Invisalign treatment should be comfortable. You might feel slight pressure on your teeth for the first few days after changing an aligner but this is normal and tells you that your teeth are on the move.

  • Will I need to wear a retainer after treatment?

    As with all orthodontic treatment, patients can expect to wear a retainer for some time after teeth have moved to prevent them from immediately drifting back. This should only be for a few months until the teeth have fully stabilised in their new positions but can depend heavily upon the patient’s bone healing abilities.

Dental Implants

Resemble natural teeth – Once a dental implant is fitted with a dental crown it looks incredibly lifelike and natural. In fact, to the untrained eye, it can be hard to spot where your real teeth end and your implants start.

Behave like natural teeth - Because dental implants are anchored directly into your jaw they become part of your mouth. As such, they provide the strength and functionality that real teeth have.

Prevents further bone loss - When a tooth is missing, it starts a chain of events resulting in a loss of bone mass around the jaw. By placing an implant directly into the jaw bone, it stimulates the bone tissue causing it to regrow.

Long-lasting – Implants can last far longer than other forms of missing tooth restoration provided they are cared for properly. This makes them a cost-effective investment in the long-term.

Questions about dental implants

  • What is a dental implant?

    A dental implant is a post-like structure typically made from titanium that is secured into the jaw at the missing tooth site. Over time, the implant fuses with the bone to create a strong platform which can then be topped with a lifelike dental restoration such as a crown or bridge to complete a smile.

  • Do I need to replace a missing tooth?

    You can ignore a missing tooth but if you do, be aware that a tooth gap may cause any remaining teeth to start to drift towards the space. This can affect bite alignment and exacerbate wear and tear on other teeth.

    Moreover, when a tooth is missing, it impacts the health of your jawbone. Natural teeth stimulate the jawbone through chewing and biting helping it to grow and remain healthy. Without treating missing teeth, the bone receives less stimulation, causing it to reabsorb (lose volume). This, in turn, can bring about an ageing look as well as undermine otherwise healthy teeth.

  • Are dental implants safe?

    Dental implant treatment is a safe process that has been honed by dental professionals over four or five decades. If you want to be doubly sure, then talk to specialist dentists in Ealing like us who have vast experience in placing dental implants into the mouths of patients.

  • Do dental implants hurt?

    Modern-day dental techniques and technology mean that dental implant surgery is both comfortable and safe. Patients should feel little or no discomfort whatsoever during the placement stage of the process. They may feel slight discomfort, however, for a few days after surgery, but any pain felt should easily be brought under control using over-the-counter medication like Aspirin. After 1-2 weeks, patients should be able to go back to living their normal lives.

Cutting-edge technology

We’re fortunate enough to have a highly qualified and experienced hygienist at our Ealing dental clinic who has worked in specialist and periodontal implant practices for over 15 years. She takes a holistic approach to treatment taking into account cutting-edge techniques for gum disease prevention and cure. Our hygienist also works with patients to help them maintain a healthy smile both now and in the future.

Commonly asked questions about hygiene treatments 

  • What are the main benefits of seeing a hygienist?

    Healthy gums form the foundation for healthy teeth so taking care of your gums is paramount to not only a healthy smile but your overall health too. Regular visits to our hygienist will help to eradicate any prolonged tartar build up and get your oral health back on track.

    Moreover, our hygienist can also give you advice on things like dietary intake, proper brushing and flossing techniques and signs to look out for in the event of gum disease. In fact, she will arm you with all the tools necessary so that you can continue to maintain a healthy smile for life.

  • Does a visit to the hygienist hurt?

    Our hygienist practices the latest gentle dental techniques and will always put your comfort  and welfare first. In addition, she can also provide the latest localised anesthetic which can be gently administered to ensure you remain relaxed and comfortable during your procedure.

  • What can I expect when I visit your specialist dental practice for the first time?

    Aside from a very warm welcome, our hygienist will give you a thorough assessment to ascertain the current state of your gum health. From this, she will develop a custom treatment plan based on your exacting needs. Where necessary, our hygienist will also give advice on factors like diet, smoking cessation and oral hygiene cleaning at home.

  • How long does a hygiene appointment take at IKON Dental Specialists?

    The first thing to notice when you visit our  dentist in Ealing is that we never rush patients through appointments. We try to take as long as we need to ensure you leave both happy and satisfied. Typically, however, you can expect a new patient hygiene appointment to last for about 1 hour with additional appointments lasting on average around 30-45 minutes depending upon what needs to be done.

Excellent service and post care. Everything was explained in details and at length and I was followed all along the procedure that took several weeks to complete (because of healing and so on).Highly recommended.
