Dental Implants

Dr M.J Whittingham  and Dr F.J Casserley are our implant trained dental surgeons.

A dental implant is a small titanium screw that is placed into the jaw bone to replicate the root of a tooth which supports a crown, bridge or a custom-made denture. If you have a gap in your smile, dental implants could be the dental treatment you need to restore your confidence.

After a dental implant is placed, the bone grows around the tooth (a process a known as osseointegration).  Abutments (connectors)  are then placed onto the implants. These are used to support crown(s), bridges or dentures.

Dental implants have been available for many years and scientific studies have shown that their long-term success is extremely high. For many patients, dental implants are the gold standard dental treatment and offer the ideal solution for their dental needs.

For implant treatment treatment, your oral and general health should be assessed to ensure the success of your dental implants. This will be done by our dentists who have had advanced training in dental implantology.

Factors that determine success of treatment include your general health, whether you smoke, the health of your mouth and remaining teeth, any medication that you take, and the amounts of bone available at the proposed implant site. Every case is individual,  therefore each patient will receive a personalized treatment plan to suit them; following their implant consultation.

If you think that a dental implant could be the solution you need to improve your dental health and appearance, book an appointment with one of our implant-trained dentists.

Implant costs vary with individual patient needs. Consultation fees are £50 and treatments start from £1700.

Cosmetic Treatments

There are a wide range of ‘cosmetic treatments’ available here at Roch Valley Dental, including teeth whitening, contouring and veneers to straighten teeth and close gaps. Your dentist will be more than happy to discuss these options with you, but please be aware that these treatments are often only available on a private basis.


Tooth whitening

Tooth whitening can be a very effective way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth without removing any of the tooth surface. It cannot make a complete colour change, but it may lighten the existing shade.
Professional bleaching is the most usual method of tooth whitening. Your dentist  will be able to tell you if you are suitable for the treatment.
Here at Roch Valley we use Polanight.
-Polanight is the leading dentist brand for professional teeth whitening treatment. 
We provide take home tooth whitening kits which consist of custom made bleaching trays and a Polanight kit of bleaching tubes.
Please discuss with your dentist if you would like further information and a quote.


Fluoride Application

We have a team of 3 fully qualified  nurses who run fluoride application clinics 3 times per week.

Patients under 18 years of age are referred from their regular dentist to the clinics and given oral health advice and fluoride varnish applied.

Fluoride varnish is a treatment that can be used to help protect against tooth decay. The varnish contains high levels of fluoride and is painted onto the surface of both baby and adult teeth. It works by strengthening the tooth enamel, making it more resistant to decay. (NHS choices)
