Lawrence Murray-Curtis, with an MSc in Implantology, is well-qualified and highly experienced in placing implants and is happy to take referrals for your patients.
Dental implants are one of the few cases in medicine where possibly the artificial solution has a better functionality than the original organ. Dental implants are made of titanium, the only metal substance to undergo osseointegration. Placed by a professionally-trained implant surgeon, a successfully-integrated implant is impossible to separate and has a long life span that, with good health, should last a lifetime.
We offer implant solutions for:
A key to implant success is the quantity and quality of the bone where the implant is to be placed. The upper back jaw has traditionally been one of the most difficult areas to successfully place dental implants due to insufficient bone quantity and quality and the close proximity to the sinus. If your patient has lost bone in that area due to periodontitis or tooth loss, there may be insufficient bone to place implants.
Bone grafting or sinus augmentation can help correct this problem by raising the sinus floor and developing bone for the placement of dental implants. A simple common technique for this is to fill some of the sinus cavities with biocompatible bone grafting material. This then gives more bone density and strengthens the area to allow implants. This will also help with regenerating the loss of bone tissue.
