Same Day Implants and Teeth / All-on-4™

Same Day Implants and Teeth offers fixed, comfortable teeth on only 4 implants, without any major bone grafting, all in ONE DAY.

It allows patients to have the smile and function they have always dreamt of, without the need for long, drawn out appointments over several weeks or months.

We extract teeth (if needed), place 4 implants in either the upper or lower jaw and have a fixed bridge placed on these. This is done all on the same day. A permanent bridge is made 3-4 months later once all of the tissues and implants have completely healed.

Call now to book for your FREE OF CHARGE All-on-4™, same day implants and fixed teeth consultation including any necessary x-rays.

Dr Sheikh or Mr Hughes can also discuss alternative treatments to suit your needs.

Smile in a Day Q&A

What to expect?

A typical day begins with the surgery in the morning – which can be provided under sedation – during which decaying and infected teeth are extracted (if present) and implants are placed. This should take between 1 and 2 hours.

After this, our on-site technicians construct your permanent fixed bridge throughout the day. During this period, you will relax and put your feet up in our recovery room which has a massage chair, TV and refreshments.

During the day we will have a couple of ‘try-in’ of your fixed teeth to judge what aesthetically gives the best result, prior to finishing the bridge. Once we are all happy with the final result, the fixed teeth are fitted for you at the end of the day, approximately between 4 and 5pm, giving you both smile and functionality.

Where are the implants placed how can they be fixed to teeth on the same day?

The front segment of the jaws (pre-maxilla and pre-mandible) most often has sufficient quantity and quality of bone for the placement of 4 implants – 2 straight and 2 angled. This allows the implants to be extremely stable for your fixed teeth (bridge) to be immediately attached to. The implant system we use for this procedure is the world-renowned Nobel Biocare implants, whose implants and components are best designed for this technique.

Is there any need for bone grafting?

This concept is fast emerging as the modality of choice for patients with deficient bone for whatever reason, be it teeth lost many years ago, denture-wearing for a long time or periodontal (gum) disease, because it eliminates the need for major bone grafting. There is no need to harvest bone from the chin or back of the jaw or hip and not necessary to enter the sinus (air space we have in our cheeks) to place bone.

The All-on-4 technique relies entirely on your own bone, and hence avoids major surgery related to bone grafting, eliminating pain and reducing the invasiveness of these procedures.

What is the cost?

The cost for whole treatment from start to finish is £15,000, inclusive of any number of extractions (teeth removal),the Same Day Implants and fixed Teeth, and your final bridge 6 months later.

The initial consultation and x-ray imaging to discuss your needs and suitability is COMPLIMENTARY with either Dr Sheikh or Mr Hughes.

Invisalign Preston, Invisalign Braces Preston

Invisalign Braces | Camden Place, Preston

Invisalign braces and dentistry is just one area where Camden Place Dental Practice, Preston, is at the forefront. We pride ourselves on our expertise and professionalism, giving you the smile you’ve always wanted. We can do this without the pain and irritation of a traditional brace. If you have crooked or spaced teeth, then Invisalign orthodontics may be used to achieve your perfect smile in a less invasive and less visible manner.

With Invisalign clear braces you can achieve the smile that you have always dreamed of. No more hiding your smile away, we can help you get your confidence back.

How Invisalign Braces work!

Invisalign braces straighten the teeth using a series of nearly invisible removable teeth aligners. These aligners are custom-made specifically for your mouth and teeth. As you progress through the program and your teeth start to move you will have to replace each aligner every two weeks. This gradual process helps move the teeth little by little and week by week. This results in your perfect smile without the look of having traditional braces.

The comfortable, and removable, Invisalign clear aligners help you to reach your goal without having to wear traditional metal braces. This makes Invisalign the perfect option if you’re uncomfortable with wearing braces due to their appearance or would struggle to use this method of teeth straightening. This treatment offers a more subtle and less obvious way of straightening the teeth.

It can correct not only the appearance of the teeth but can alter the jaw if you have an underbite or an overbite, or find that you’re bite is uneven.

Are you ready for your perfect smile?

Invisalign is suitable for all ages, so there is nothing stopping you from getting your perfect smile!

Getting your teeth straightened using Invisalign not only helps the appearance of your teeth, it also improves their overall health. Straighter teeth makes it easier to keep your teeth clean and this also means that your teeth are less likely to decay. A straighter smile will definitely give you lots more confidence, you definitely won’t want to hide your teeth away anymore that’s for sure! Invisalign is the most pain free and least invasive option to achieve an improvement in the appearance of your teeth. You will also receive a free teeth whitening program on completion of your treatment.

If you’re not a fan of braces we use an invisible brace system instead of wires so during the process you will still be able to show off your smile! There is minimal discomfort when the teeth move so you won’t have to worry about being in any pain. Once your treatment is completed you will be given a set of retainers and also a custom whitening kit.

If you think Invisalign braces are the right route for you to take then please contact us or call us today on 01772 556 050 to book an appointment consultation at our Preston clinic! You can find more information about the clear braces on the Invisalign page on our website, or take a look at Invisalign’s website here.

Teeth Whitening Preston

Teeth Whitening | Camden Place Dental Practice, Preston

At Camden Place, Preston, we offer teeth whitening treatments which are the perfect way to easily achieve a wonderful bright white smile. Whether you are simply getting the teeth whitening treatment to remove stains on the teeth, which can be caused by smoking and staining food & drinks, or just looking to totally overhaul your smile, Camden Place Dental Practice, Preston, offers a teeth whitening system that delivers the results you’re looking for which can be achieved from the comfort of your own home.

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is an effective, non-invasive way of lightening the natural colour of your teeth, without removing any of the tooth surface. Tooth whitening cannot make a complete colour change but it may lighten the existing shade of the teeth to a desired lighter shade. This can not only provide a brighter smile, but can alleviate the associated cosmetic issue of a lack of confidence due to the colour of your smile.

Looking to improve the natural colour of your teeth without damaging the surface of the tooth?

We’re constantly striving for a better smile and since dental health and cosmetic dentistry is now so important, not only for our appearance but also our confidence, we here at Camden Place Dental Practice, Preston, are happy to offer our clients a safe and effective form of teeth whitening to improve the look of your smile.

There are many ‘at home’ or over-the-counter alternatives to cosmetic dentistry teeth whitening, however, there are number of issues with choosing this option. Many of the product’s results are not visible enough, meaning legally they can claim to be ‘teeth whitening’ but this could only be a fraction of a shade lighter which cannot be seen with the human eye. Also, some of these remedies only remove surface stains on the teeth rather than changing the colour of the natural tooth itself. There are also treatments available which can be too potent for the teeth and could be potentially dangerous and cause adverse affects, such as teeth sensitivity and bleeding gums. Choosing the safest option for your teeth will lead to a healthier mouth for longer.

At Camden Place, Preston, we offer professional teeth whitening services which do not remove any of the tooth surface or cause any damage. Justine Eastwood, our resident dental hygienist is fully qualified and a member of the British Dental Hygienist Dental Association and can provide you will a thorough cleanse of the mouth, and provide advice for how to improve your smile yourself in addition to the teeth whitening treatment.

Teeth Whitening – Here are the benefits!

It will transform your smile and you’ll be wanting to show it off with a new found confidence. Because we use a deep bleaching technique, getting your teeth whitened can be a permanent treatment, as long as you continue to look after your teeth properly with the correct after-care. The total length of our professional at home bleaching treatment can vary depending on how discoloured your teeth are to begin with and the shade you are aiming to achieve with the teeth whitening treatment. The process can usually be completed within two-to-four weeks. Therefore, you can be sure that you won’t have to spend any more money on keeping the smile that you have always wanted!

Teeth whitening is also a non-invasive procedure; this just means that nothing is cut open or invaded during the treatment.  If you want to get rid of those tea and coffee stains then this is the perfect treatment for you!

If you are interested in the treatment and this that it’s the right choice for you then call us today on 01772 556 050 to book an appointment at our Preston clinic.

Back Pain Dental, Camden Place Preston

Back Pain Linked to Jaw Pain

You wouldn’t always think that back pain would be linked to your teeth or jaw pain but that’s exactly what we discovered recently at Camden Place Dental.

This article was recently published in the Lancashire Evening Post and was about Ian Hindle who is a chimney fitter and was suffering so much from back pain that he thought he would have to retire from his beloved job.

After his chiropractor Austin Lavelle suggested his paid may be linked by his jay alignment he came to see us at Camden Place Dental.

Ian subsequently saw Dr Austin Hughes at the practice and he performed a new technique which involved removing Ian’s upper teeth, placing four 
implants, realigning his jaw and providing him with an immediate bridge – all in the same day.

Mr Hughes, who has been a dentist for 30 years, said:

“Mr Hindle came to see me and said that his chiropractor had told him he needed his jaw re-aligning and that this might cure his back 


“We managed to change Mr Hindle’s underbite to a natural bite by removing his remaining upper teeth, placing four implants and making a bridge for him all in the same day.”

Ian said that his life has now been transformed and he is a totally new person. All thoughts of retirement have now been put on hold because his back is so much better.

And not just his back, Ian now has a natural bite like other people. Ian said “before my face seemed to come down on one side and because of my back problems, I walked a bit stooped too, I was looking much older than my age”.

Well it’s not every day you would link back pain with jaw problems, but it can and does happen.

If you would like to find out if implants could help you, call us now on 01772 556 050.
