  1. An implant story – Mike

  2. You’re not alone – We can help!

    July 6, 2016

    At Helens Bay we have been placing and restoring dental implants since the year 2000.  Gareth, Lidia and Sarah work as a team with the help of the hygiene department and our very experienced dental nurses and treatment coordinator.  Between Lidia, Gareth and Sarah they have over 80 years of experience in delivering private dentistry.  Lidia has been placing implants for over 20 years and has placed over 6000 implants at Helens Bay.  We have placed and restored just under 2000 dental implants since the year 2000.

    Lidia and Gareth have travelled extensively to attend training courses both in surgical and restorative areas.  They have also both trained and mentored dentists in Ireland on placing implants from Biomet 3i and Nobel Biocare.

    We provide a 10 year guarantee on the implant and five years on the restoration. At Helens Bay we have a Cone Beam CT scanner to enable the planning of implants and also we can use Cerec technology in some cases to design and fabricate the crown.  In 2012 we attended the Malo clinic in Portugal and were trained in the All on 4 technique – this means a patient can have their unrestorable teeth removed, implants placed and a batch of replacement teeth constructed within 24 ours to allow the patient to have a new set of teeth fitted to bring back their smile.
