18th June – Coronavirus update

We are delighted to be able to announce that we are going to be able to – finally – reopen for emergency and urgent treatment on 22nd June 2020. 

As per the requirements of the Scottish government that are in place for dental practices, this will be limited to treatments classified as urgent or emergency only. It has been frustrating over the last few months in being unable to offer the level of care we would hope for while the country has been in lockdown. 

We have always adopted cross infection procedures in excess of the requirements for dental practices, however we have stepped this up well past the current recommendations for the prevention of spread of Coronavirus, so you will see some changes in the way we work for some time, but please be assured that this is being done for the prevention of the spread of coronavirus. 

What to do to book an appointment

Limited appointments are available for urgent and emergency care

This service is available to registered patients at the practice, and if capacity allows, unregistered patients may be seen on a private basis, but existing patients will be prioritised. 

If you need to be seen, please call the practice on 0131 663 8800 and leave a voicemail. Your message will be returned and an appointment booked after going through some information regarding your requirements. Please note that while we will try to accomodate everyone, there will be instances where it is not possible to see you under current guidelines or where you may have to wait. 

Please note – the door of the practice will be locked and any matters such as appointment booking must be handled via telephone. 

We look forward to fully reopening the practice in the coming months, and will keep the information updated here in the meantime. 

 

Best regards

We wish you and your loved ones good health. 

 

Best regards

Welcome to Signum Dental Implant Clinic

Whether you are missing one, two or more teeth, or would like to replace an entire arch of missing teeth, we are a dental implant clinic that prides ourselves on offering high quality at competitive prices. 

If you are missing a single tooth, a dental implant is the most preferred choice in 2019. Unlike bridges or dentures, the risk to the surrounding teeth is minimised and they can be cleaned and flossed just like a natural tooth, and can provide a lifetime of function, if they are maintained correctly. 

Duncan Scorgie has a wealth of experience in implant dentistry, and can provide excellent results when replacing missing teeth, having placed well over 1,000 dental implants. 

Duncan prides himself on working to a high standard in order to provide strong, long lasting results. 

 

Cosmetic dentistry

For many people, having a dental implant placed can be the impetus for having a broader range of cosmetic dental procedures performed. We can, of course, provide this to a high standard and to match any implant retained restoration.

While performing cosmetic and other treatment of weakened or decayed teeth, Duncan uses a microscope in order to provide an excellent fit and easy cleaning of your veneers, crowns, caps or fillings.

The focus is on long term health, and with modern materials, the appearance is, of course, exceptional compared to old, metal based crowns that leave a black line at the gum. 

 

Same day teeth

If all of your teeth in either upper, lower or both jaws, the entire arch can be replaced in a single day, meaning that you leave with a strong, healthy smile. In the longer term, a beautiful, natural looking fixed bridge gives you the confidence to eat, chew and smile.

Replace more than just one tooth

If you have more than one tooth missing, it is not necessary to replace every tooth with a dental implant.

As long as the teeth are next to each other and there is enough bone, a bridge secured on dental implants can give a fantastic result that will last a long time.

Single tooth replacement

Looking to replace a single tooth? Whether it’s through an accident, decay or gum disease, a single missing tooth can impact your ability to bite, chew and smile.

A dental implant is an ideal way of replacing a single tooth and means no damage to the surrounding teeth and without the discomfort and loss of taste associated with removable dentures.

Stabilise loose lower dentures

Tired of loose lower dentures? It’s a common problem.

Stabilise your lower dentures with dental implant attachments. Extra security means less movement, which means a better bite, easier chewing and more confidence when eating and speaking.
