Your Implants Dentist In Alfreton
My name is Matt Lamb, I’m the implants dentist here at Glendair…
Placing dental implants is a rewarding and fulfilling part of my job.
- They are the only option to truly replace like with like.
- Implants are a dynamic treatment using many of my skills as a dentist. My patients feel reassured that I provide a complete implant that includes a natural-looking tooth on top.
- They are proven to work – the implant manufacturer I use, market leader Nobel Biocare, has been designing implants for 40 years.
- I have patients who travel long distances to see me because they have trust in our approach and the results I achieve.
Choosing to have dental implants is a big decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly – and should never be made on price alone. There are always cheaper options available but as the old adage says, you get what you pay for. We offer transparent pricing for implants, right from the start.
I have a Master’s Degree in Medical Science and Dental Implantology and I chose to take additional training as I understood the complexities and the massive pitfalls associated with people placing implants when not appropriately trained. Placing dental implants is a true skill and a one-day course is just not good enough.
I undertook the highest level of implant training a high street dentist can because I wanted to know more than just how to put an implant in. It was important that I understood exactly why the placement of an implant needs to be correct, in the right place, at the right time, to produce the best outcome for the patient.
I know and understand the evidence, which means our patients have the dental implant delivered safely and accurately, using the latest evidence-based technologies. This results in the implant working and appearing like a natural tooth and we place great importance on post-implant care to help ensure that the implant will last a lifetime.
I hold a clinical teaching post at Sheffield University where I teach qualified dentists the best way to place dental implants. I have an empathetic, patient-centred approach and also have a diploma in conscious sedation and anxiety management, which is ideal for nervous patients.
My membership in general dental practice and the Royal College of Surgeons demonstrate a broad knowledge and skills base to accurately diagnose most oral problems. If I were to have an infection with a tooth, or if I had to have an extraction, I would choose only one option – a dental implant. What is good enough for my patients is good enough for me.
