Is something missing?

If you have lost all or some of your natural teeth, chances are you will be feeling that not just your teeth are missing. Despite medical advancements in dentistry, tooth loss remains a prevalent problem in the UK – mostly due to tooth decay, gingivitis (gum disease), or injury.

missing-teethTooth loss can cause a ‘sunken’ look to the face, and can also cause problems with eating and drinking. Speech is also often affected by tooth loss.

Until recent years, the only treatment available for people were dentures or bridges, but technological advances now mean that we can now provide dental implants. North London is home to Adams Dental, a long established and family run practice that provides high quality dental implants for patients, in a personal and friendly way that really cares fro your unique dental needs. Nervous dental patients need not worry; we have an excellent reputation for having a safe and relaxed atmosphere, with a range of options to distract or entertainment you, including hypnosis and sedation. Other dentists often refer nervous patients to us!

How does it work?

Dental implants are a great new way of replacing teeth. They look natural, and are very strong and long-lasting. Dental implants are a clinically proven and safe route back to getting a smile you are truly proud of.

The implants are tiny titanium metal tubes. Each tube is gently placed into where the missing tooth is. As time passes, the jawbone naturally fuses with the tube, forming a real root to which it is fixed.

What if I have no teeth?

Not a problem. We can provide fixed bridgework to replace the missing teeth if there is sufficient bone to work with. Implants can also hold dentures in place much more firmly, making problems with eating and speaking a thing of the past.

In North London, dental implants are available at a reliable family practice in whom you can truly trust. Adams Dental can be found at 244A Chase Side, Southgate, North London. Dental implants may well be the best choice for you to restore your smile, your lifestyle and your confidence.

Care for your smile with dental implants

At Adams Dental in North London not only do we care about your smile, we care that you have as pleasant a time as possible while we are treating you.

dental-implants-north-londonDental Implants are the right solution for a large number of patients who need to have the root of tooth replaced when it has deteriorated or failed.

Why dental implants?

Dental implants are the newest and most effective way of replacing missing teeth in North London. Dental implants have been in use for long enough for the dental profession to strongly recommend these as a safe and reliable way of replacing teeth and can be extremely long lasting.

Crowns, dentures and bridges and dentures can be attached to the base of the dental implant. Dental implants are a great solution for anyone whose smile is less than total, we can give you a new smile without gaps that will give you the confidence to smile naturally again.

Dental implants are little more difficult to clean than normal teeth. They may need a certain slightly different cleaning approach depending on their location within the mouth. All aftercare instructions will be given to you by your dentist after the procedure.

It sounds great, but I am too scared to visit the dentist

It is not uncommon to be a nervous dental patient, but in North London, dental implants do not have to be a painful or frightening experience. Nervous dental patients can watch DVDs or listen to music during many procedures.

Hypnotherapy can also help nervous dental patients, not only during treatments, but also to manage anxiety in the future.

There are two options available for dental sedation.The first is oral dental sedation, which is a milder form of sedation and is usually taken in tablet form on the morning before your procedure.

Intravenous or IV sedation is a sedative drug that is injected in a controlled manner, so that you feel relaxed during the dental treatment. At Adams Dental, we provide you with full aftercare instructions. A friend will need to come with you to take you home and look after you until the sedatives wear off.

Phobias – What are they and how can you change them?

Phobias are essentially just a strong fear. There’s no real difference between a fear, and a phobia, except that a phobia is normally a more intense emotion, and as a rule of thumb, people with phobias always unconsciously remember to run their phobia patterns when they are confronted with the object of their phobia.

This might sound silly, but it’s often a serious commitment with a consistency rarely displayed in most areas of life. For example, most people see the rubbish bins on their way in and out of the house, but they don’t always remember to take them out! But someone with a phobia of spiders for example, every time they see a spider, they remember to freak out. They never forget – not once!

And what’s really interesting about that is that demonstrates the exact skill set needed to be able to get rid of the phobia forever!

As newborn babies we are only afraid of 2 things. Falling and loud noises, these are the only 2 inbuilt “natural” fears we’re born with.

Which means, everything else you’re afraid of in life, you made a decision at some point to start being afraid of it.

And in the case of some phobias and strong fears, you stuck to that decision steadfastly. You may not have been consciously aware of making that decision, and you did make it. You changed your mind from not being afraid to being afraid.

Which is all you need to do to stop being afraid, forever! Just change your mind.

The problem is, most people don’t know how they made the decision in the first place, let alone how to make a new one.

To understand that you need to understand how you created your phobia in the first place.

A phobia is, essentially, an anchor; which is exactly what it sounds like, it anchors a certain stimuli or trigger to a certain emotion or thought.

So that song on the radio that reminds you of the summer of your youth, or the cologne your grandfather used to wear that when you smell it almost transports you back there, are both examples of anchors. Your mind has linked the external trigger with a certain emotion or thought.

And that’s all a phobia is, your mind has linked a certain external trigger or event with a certain emotion or thought, the only difference is that it happens to be a negative or painful emotion.

In most cases phobias can be permanently cured in one or two sessions.


How Invisalign works video

Invisalign works using aligners. Thin, clear plastic covers which are worn by the patient nearly full time.

I often send this video to patients who want to know a little bit more about how Invisalign works.

We always cover this during our free consultations, however, what I love about this video ,is that it helps give patients a glimpse into the technology and science behind how Invisalign works. As well as showing a few examples of actual patients who have had it done, talking about how it was for them.



More about how Invisalign works

They are designed in a series. Such that your first aligners is where your teeth are today, and your last aligner is where your teeth are to end up.

Each aligner along the series is in a slightly more moved or rotated position closer towards the new shape of your smile.

Each week at home, you as the patients would change over to your next aligner. As this aligner is slightly more moved along in the desired position, it puts pressure on the teeth which is what will causes teeth to move.

Typically once you have started your treatment you’ll visit us every 6-8 weeks. This is usually tailored to suit each patients needs.

In essence that is how Invisalign works.

Nervous dental patients have nothing to fear thanks to advances in modern dentistry

Nervous dental patients are increasingly able to conquer their fears and get back to full oral health thanks to modern dental advances. Adams Dental in North London offers a number of options for nervous dental patients, and the dedicated and caring staff will work with you to find the perfect route back to health.

nervous-dental-patientsBeing afraid of the dentist isn’t uncommon, and certainly isn’t anything to be ashamed of. In fact, in a recent survey one in ten UK adults classed themselves as nervous dental patients, and admitted that they never or rarely visited a dental practice.

The problem is that, without regular check-ups from a dentist and appointments with a hygienist, oral health can quickly fall into disrepair. This in turn can lead to infection, pain, and a great deal of emotional distress – which only serves to make nervous dental patients feel worse.

At our North London practice, our principal dentist, Dr Ricky Adams, is Dental Phobia certified. This means he is recognised and accredited for his work with nervous dental patients. The whole of the team at our North London clinic shares this ethos of treating nervous dental patients with respect, care, and understanding.

North London nervous dental patients: your options

There are several options available to nervous dental patients at our North London clinic, and the team will take the time to find the one that works best for you.

Sometimes, discussing the advances made in dentistry since a patient has last visited a practice (which can be decades in some cases) is enough to put a nervous patient’s mind at rest. However, when a little extra help is needed, there are several routes you can take.

In-chair entertainment

Nervous dental patients can distract themselves from the practice environment by watching a DVD or listening to music during many procedures.


Hypnotherapy can help nervous dental patients not just in the short-term – to get any urgent treatment they need – but can also provide techniques for self-management of anxiety in the future.

Dental sedation

A range of sedative options are available to make you largely unaware of any treatment.
