Dental implants and implant x-ray

Dental implants

Westgate Dental Practice was one of the first practices in the North West to become involved with dental implants. We have experience of all the major implant systems and undertake cases from single teeth to implant retained bridges carrying multiple teeth and implant retained complete dentures.

Peter Leyland has been placing and restoring dental implants for the last ten years and has a post graduate qualification in dental implantology. Peter is also an A.D.I implant mentor.

Implant referrals

All non implant work is referred back to the patient's General Practitioner. Having completed his year long  course in 2000 and a subsequent post graduate Diploma in Dental Implantology in 2009, Peter Leyland has been placing implants for the last ten years.

Peter uses all the major implant systems including Straumann, Ankyloss, biomet 3i, Astratech and Imtech. He also undertakes ridge augmentation for preservation and guided bone regeneration using zenografts.

Complete case referral, implant placement and restoration
Once we have received your patient's details, they are contacted to arrange a consultation appointment. During their first visit we examine them thoroughly and discuss their hopes and expectations of what can be achieved with implant dentistry.

Photographs, study models and any necessary radiographs are taken at the practice. CT scans are also arranged at this visit. A report is then sent to the patient and the referring practitioner.

The patient is seen for the implant placement and the following week for a review. The implant is left to integrate for a period before the restoration phase. Any other dental work is referred back to their referring dentist who can then also take over the monitoring of the implant and its maintenance.

Implant placement only
Once practitioners are familiar with the implant process they may wish to restore the implants themselves. The consultation and surgical stage is then done at Westgate Dental Practice. The patient then returns to their own practitioner for their reconstruction.
