Implants

A dental implant or implants are the treatment of choice to fill a gap, as it does not affect neighbouring teeth, and is a very stable long-term solution, provided;

  1. you are ‘suitable’ for implants, i.e. good bone levels and healthy gums
  2. you are committed to taking care of your implants,  i.e. meticulous cleaning of your implants and regular hygienist visits

What is an implant?

View this video which covers what an implant is, how it differs from conventional treatments such as a bridge or a denture, and how an implant treatment is carried out.

 

Implant Treatments at Shelley Manor Dental

We can offer you the replacement of a single tooth with an implant or provide you with a full set of teeth permanently fixed on just 4 to 6 implants.

We can also provide implant-retained dentures; that is dentures that can attach firmly onto implants greatly improving stability, retention and comfort when compared to traditional dentures. This can make a huge difference to patients who have been struggling with loose ill-fitting dentures.

We are now offering free implant consultations with our visiting Implant Surgeon to our registered patients on Friday mornings.  Call us on 01202 443882 to book an appointment. 0% Finance available to help spread the cost of your implant treatment over a longer period.

What is involved in having an implant?

The time frame from initial consultation to final implant crown fit should take approximately three months for a straightforward procedure.  It is important to place the implant accurately so in planning your treatment we need to take a 3D scan prior to placement. If we find there has been some bone loss due to infection you will need to have some bone added and allow time for healing. This is a relatively simple procedure and well worth it to get the best results.  Once the titanium implant is in position and has integrated with your bone we can then proceed to fit the new tooth to it, i.e. the visible implant crown.

Implant or Bridge?

An alternative to dental implants is having a dental bridge. Click on the following link to learn more, Dental Bridge

    I can highly recommend Shelley Manor Dental...

    ...practice as exemplary. Dr Tim Doyle and hygienist Vicky have transformed my dental health to a very high standard since I joined the practice in 2017.

    Very gentle, kind and understanding...

    Very gentle, kind and understanding as I am a little claustrophobic. Matt and his nurse take time and I never feel under pressure or rushed. I can't recommend Matt enough.

    I highly recommend the practice

    Shelley Manor Dental provide a personal patient-centred approach to their treatment plans accommodating individual preferences and budgets! I came to see Tim after years of extensive dental work and implants. Tim has restored my teeth to a natural looking smile, whilst also considering the longevity of his treatment, my "bite", and overall what I wanted as a final outcome. The team have been friendly and approachable and I highly recommend the practice.

    “Must be the gentlest hygiene session I’ve ever experienced”

    "Must be the gentlest hygiene session I've ever experienced, whether due to new technology or care of the hygienist I'm not sure but my teeth feel/look great now. I've booked my next session already. Old mansion house, first floor and renovation work in progress and new equipment getting fitted as I write this. Parking also available "

    Other dentists could not get to the bottom of my problem

    I suffered pain in my jaw for many years and I had worn down my lower teeth. I also suffered from related headaches. Other dentists could not get to the bottom of my problem. I was referred to an NHS dental specialist but I was told it was not possible to do anything for me.

    Tim Doyle was the first person to tell me he was able to help. He diagnosed a temporomandibular joint disorder. To start with he referred me for physiotherapy on my head, jaw and face over the course of several months. Then in stages he replaced my lower teeth with crowns and bridges. I am very pleased with my end result and I have teeth that I can eat with. Aesthetically my teeth look better, and my headaches are much less frequent.

    Excellent!

    Apart from the injection, I actually enjoyed the rest. I nearly fell asleep!! Thank you to the team.

    This is a really good dental practice…

    ...and I thoroughly recommend it. Tim Doyle is not only first class in what he does, he is a good communicator and is especially concerned about the needs and feelings of his patients.
    Also the support staff are friendly and supportive, including Sharon who runs the office. 
    I have come to Tim from an NHS dental practice, but have not found much difference in charges. His practice is modern and very well equipped. I really like being able to see any x-ray details, immediately available and while you sit in the chair.
    It is all extremely good and highly professional.

    I will be forever grateful

    I moved from the Midlands and first used Shelly Manor Dentist in 2011. I wanted to make my teeth more aesthetically pleasing as I have knocked my front teeth out after a cycling accident and the old caps were looking sad.
    Tim was fantastic and between us we worked out a cost effective way of making my smile much nicer. I had veneers on all my upper teeth to match up the colour and was thrilled! Thank you Tim and Nuala, I will be forever grateful.

    Scared of the dentist? Visit Mr Tim Doyle at Shelley Manor Dental

    As someone who had struggled with an irrational fear of the dentist since childhood, I was delighted to discover Shelley Manor Dental, a private dental practice owned and run by Mr Tim Doyle and his wife, Nuala.

    Based in Shelley Manor Medical Centre, with easy parking and modern consulting rooms, this practice offers a range of services including those provided by a wonderfully sensitive hygienist named Eddie.

    On every visit, I have been made to feel at ease. I am rarely kept waiting for more than a minute or two (important when your instinct is to run away!), and I'm always greeted with a warm welcome. Especially from Natalie, the lovely Dental Nurse.

    Tim's calm, open and friendly approach makes it easy to relax once 'in the chair'. He knows his stuff, explains everything clearly and his obvious enthusiasm for his subject is infectious. Who knew that photos of an 'upper right 7' could be so interesting?

    I will shortly be moving to Bath but, having found this gem of a dentist after ten years of searching for someone who did not make me feel foolish, I fully intend to remain a patient of Shelley Manor Dental for a long time to come.

    Thank you Tim, Nuala, Natalie and Eddie for a first-class service.

    Thanks so much for your great work

    Dear Shelley Manor Team,

    Thanks so much for your great work.

    After avoiding dentists for most of my adult life due to 'dental phobia' brought on by extensive treatment in childhood, I finally researched 'dentists' on the internet. The Shelley Manor website sounded perfect with the link to the lovely Debbie at Bournemouth Cognitive Behaviour. After emailing her and a short series of meetings she 'held my hand' and introduced me to Tim and the dental team. I have now had a course of treatment in a wonderfully calm, friendly environment free from pain or stress. I can recommend their services to anyone.
