Tooth implant dentist Bedford, Bedfordshire

Dr Richard Latchford

BDS BSc LDS RCS (Eng) MFGDP (UK) MSc (Specialist in Prosthodontics)

Richard is a highly experienced restorative practitioner with almost twenty years of implant experience.  Richard is now principally associated with the reconstruction of complex cases especially with the use of implants.  The number of cases and the need to simplify the procedures while maximising the appearance has involved Richard undertaking both surgical and restorative phases of implant treatment.  This has meant an increase in single stage cases, often with immediate replacement of natural teeth.  This reduces the number of surgical procedures and bone loss with a concomitant improvement in appearance.  Richard has wide experience in the rehabilitation of complex trauma and osteotomy cases working with several Consultant Oral Maxillo-Facial Surgeons.

Patient consultations

Patients just beginning to think about dental implant treatment may find it helpful to attend a complimentary preliminary consultation with Dr Latchford.  This appointment does not include a clinical examination and it only takes 15 minutes.  The discussion will help you consider the options for treating your dental problems and decide whether to proceed to a clinical consultation for implants.  The preliminary consultation is free of charge for visitors enquiring through this website.  Please use the button in the right hand column to request an appointment.

Once you have decided in principle that you want implant treatment, the next step is a clinical consultation.  This includes a comprehensive oral examination, and results in production of a fully-costed individual plan for your treatment.  The fee for the clinical assessment appointment and provision of your personal treatment plan is £165 and includes radiographs.
