Meet the team

Glendair Dental Dr Matthew Lamb

Dr Matthew Lamb

BDS (Sheffield 2004) AFCGDent, Dip Con Sed, MMedSci, Oral & Maxillofacial Implantology

Matt is the director at Glendair Dental Practice and his areas of expertise include smile reconstruction, smile makeovers, high-tech denture work and implant dentistry, all of which help him to replace missing teeth beautifully. He is also interested in orthodontics, having undertaken extensive further training. He has an empathetic, patient-centred approach and also has a diploma in conscious sedation and anxiety management, which is ideal for nervous patients.

Matt is an associate fellow of the College of Dentistry, demonstrating his broad knowledge and skills base to accurately diagnose most oral problems. He has a Master’s Degree in Medical Science and Dental Implantology and undertook the highest level of implant training a high-street dentist can. This is because he feels it is important that he understands exactly why the placement of an implant needs to be correct, in the right place, at the right time, to produce the best outcome.

Matt knows and understands the clinical 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.

Frequently asked questions

How much are dental implants per tooth?

Dental implants start at £4000 per tooth. Finance is available.

How long do dental implants take?

After a consultation, your dental implants can be completed in a few visits to us. The healing process can be 3-6 months and we will follow up after the treatment to check on the progress.  

How long do dental implants last?

After a consultation, your dental implants can be completed in a few visits to us. The healing process can be 3-6 months and we will follow up after the treatment to check on the progress. Once you’ve had your consultation, your next visit will be surgery where we fit the metal post into your jawbone. You’ll then need to heal and allow the jawbone to strengthen around the artificial root so it can hold the crown which is fitted at a later date. 

Do dental implants hurt?

It’s common to experience some pain and discomfort after having your dental implants fitted. This may last around 2 days but sometimes up to 10 days. This is all perfectly natural as your bone and gums heal and adjust to the new implant.

Can dental implants be replaced?

Dental implants can be removed however they are intended to be a permanent tooth replacement option. Main reasons a dental implant may be removed include implant failure where it did not properly attach the jawbone, due to an infection or too much force being applied to it causing it to become loose.

The removal process is easier if the implant hasn’t already been fitted to the jawbone. Anaesthesia will be required so the dentist can remove the crown and implant without causing any pain.

Can dental implants be done in one day?

Dental implants can sometimes be completed in a day however they usually require a few visits. All-on-4 dental implants can be completed on the same day making them a popular option for people wanting a quick fix.

You will still require a consultation to make sure you’re suitable for the treatment and a check-up after surgery to ensure you are healing well, however the implant procedure will be completed during one visit. 

Can dental implants get infected?

In rare cases, dental implants can become infected. This results in inflammation of the soft gum tissues and potential bone loss around the implant. Symptoms of a dental implant infection will occur around the implant and can include tender or swollen gums, an enlarged pocket depth, and bleeding gums when brushing.

The implant will eventually become loose as the bone around it weakens. You should contact your dentist immediately if you think you have an infection in your implant. 

How do dental implants work?

Dental implants are fitted into your gums to replace missing teeth. They look extremely realistic and function the same as a natural tooth as they are implanted into your jawbone providing a firm fit. They integrate with your real teeth meaning you can eat and chew food without worrying about your implant moving around, which is an issue with dentures. 

How are dental implants made?

The dental implant consists of different parts. The root is made of titanium which is screwed into the jawbone. The crown which is the replacement tooth is usually made from porcelain. Ceramic implants are also an option.

How are dental implants fitted?

Your dental implant is fitted directly into your jawbone. Your oral surgeon makes a cut to open your gum so they can expose the area of bone the implant will be fitted into. Holes are drilled into the bone where the metal post will be placed.

The post acts as a root holding your implant firmly in place inside your mouth. The artificial crown is attached to the post. This usually requires your jawbone to heal so it’s strong enough to support the new tooth which can take several months. 

Disclaimer 1: Every surgical procedure carries potential risks. You should always consult with a dental professional prior to treatment. Potential risk factors may vary depending on medical or other conditions of each patient. The possibility of immediate placement and the use of a prosthetic tooth depends on many factors, such as bone presence and quality, dental history, implant location, and availability of the final restoration. Your clinician will fully describe the possible scenarios to you during consultation prior to surgery.  Consult your clinician to find out if dental implants are right for you.
