At Ikon Dental Suite, we believe prevention is better than cure, which is why we put a big emphasis on education. We educate our patients on how to take excellent care of their teeth and gums and we educate ourselves so we can provide the best possible service.
Crowns, bridges and dentures have been developed to not only replace the aesthetic look of your teeth, but also to replace some of their function. With 15 million people worldwide wearing these type of restorations, it’s worth looking at what they can and cannot do as a replacement of your natural teeth.
If your replacement teeth don’t fit properly, if they get bits caught under their plate, if you have to take them out at night and put them in a glass to soak, if you have to buy adhesive for them, if they click when you speak or yawn, you are hardly likely to ever relax about them and forget they are there.
If you have reached the point at which some of your teeth are starting to fail, it may be time to throw in the towel on treatments to try and make them last longer and go for extraction and replacement. Many people are tempted to forget the second bit and live with the gaps, especially if the gaps are at the sides and back of the mouth where they are less visible.
Have you recently lost a tooth or had an extraction? Are you tired of wearing dentures that don’t fit properly? If you suffer from any of the above, maybe it’s time to consider dental implants in Ealing.
Having lost some or all of your teeth, you are faced with 3 options for replacement. You get to choose between dentures, fixed bridgework and dental implants. In Ealing, at Ikon Dental Suite, we are seeing an increasing number of patients opting for dental implants. These patients come from our own practice, but many are also referred from other practices that do not currently offer dental implants.
You are young. You love sports. And you love your teeth. Unfortunately, you are now one or two teeth down due to that little accident you had. That’s the thing with sport, it’s never without risk.
Dental implants were first used and developed for older patients with one or more missing teeth. However, their success and broad use in dentistry in recent years, have encouraged dentists to also use them on younger patients in cases of trauma or because of other factors that contribute to tooth loss at a young age.
Fresh off the back of her appearance on James Martin’s Saturday Morning Kitchen, we were pleased to welcome TV chef, author and restaurateur, Dipna Anand to the practice.
The British Dental Association has reported that 14.5 million fewer NHS dental procedures took place in England between March and the end of August 2020. It is estimated that the figure rose to over 19 million by the end of October.
Dental implants are an easy, effective and durable way to replace missing or badly decayed teeth. They are even ideal for patients who have lost all of their natural teeth and wish to restore their oral function to the fullest. Dental implants are as durable as natural teeth, since they allow patients to chew and bite without the fear of damaging their teeth, gums or jawbone.
If you’ve just got dental implants, congratulations on your quest to obtaining a healthy and beautiful smile. However, beware of all the dangers that lurk – smoking is one of them. To be more precise, all dentists advise their patients not to smoke after a dental implant procedure, since smoking can seriously compromise your body’s ability to heal properly.
Periodontist, it’s a bit of a mouthful but it’s a word worth knowing. Roughly translated from its Latin origins, periodontist means around the tooth. Your periodontist in Ealing therefore deals with the tissues around your tooth, namely your gums and other structures that support your teeth. It’s these tissues that enable your teeth to do their job, chewing, chomping, gnawing and biting their way through every meal and snack you eat. With such an important role to play, it is therefore no wonder that a whole branch of dentistry is dedicated to taking care of these tissues.
For several years, dental implants have been in the front line of restorative dentistry and for good reason. Unlike dentures or bridges that simply sit on the gums without interacting with the jawbone, dental implants replace missing tooth roots and restore the oral function almost completely. Not to mention that they look and feel just like real teeth.
A periodontist is a dentist with advanced education who specialises in the gums. More specifically, periodontists prevent and treat gum disease and other issues affecting the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Periodontists also provide tailored implant solutions to patients with a few or many missing teeth.
Patients who have had dental implants often wonder whether these tiny titanium posts and the replacement teeth on top of them require special care. Truth is that the daily care of dental implants is very similar (if not identical) to the care of natural teeth, since they should be kept clean and plaque-free at all times. However, special instructions are provided after an implant operation to ensure that they heal successfully over time.
Periodontists are dentists whose work focuses on all things that affect the gum tissue, including the planning and placement of dental implants. If you wish to replace your missing teeth with dental implants, you need a periodontist rather than a general dentist.
If you have decided that dental implants are going to replace your missing teeth, you need to plan your next steps carefully. For starters, you should find an experienced dental surgeon who focuses on dental implants.
We don’t want you to see our periodontist in Ealing. Honestly, we would rather you didn’t have to call on the services of our clinical director, Dr Manish Bose. Manish is a highly experienced and skilled periodontist in Ealing, having completed a 3-year programme in periodontology at University College London. He’s been a dentist for more than 20 years, so he’s seen his share of gums in that time.
Some dental treatments last longer than others. Braces can realign teeth and they will always look great (if you wear the retainer after treatment). Veneers can last for 10 years or more.
The world of dental implant research and development is fast moving and it can take a while for the latest knowledge to trickle down to dentists who do not offer dental implants themselves.
Gum disease is the silent destroyer of your teeth. It doesn’t eat away at them causing big painful holes like decay does, instead it attacks the tissues that surrounds them until, eventually they come loose in their sockets and fall out.

In dental practice, as in medicine, there are general dentists and those who focus on particular fields of dentistry. A periodontist focuses on taking care of the gums.
Whether you are missing one or more teeth as a result of an accident, gum disease, or old age, chances are that you are considering dental implants. Most patients are suitable for dental implants. But sometimes, dental implants may not be the most viable solution for replacing missing teeth.
A periodontist is a dentist who is interested in the gums, the surrounding tissues that support them and the different conditions that affect them. As well as focusing on prevention, periodontics can also treat gum disease, place dental implants and deal with inflammation.
