''Antwerp House Group was recognised at the Dental Awards 2016, scooping 2 awards including 'Best National Smile Month Event 2016' and Apple Tree Dentistry's very own Beth Sievewright winning 'Receptionist of the year 2016'. A Fantastic achievement.''
Within the Antwerp Dental group we have a team of dedicated and motivated individuals, striving to
make a positive influence on the oral health of all our patients. We have seen first-hand how the
National smile month campaign can provide education, encouragement and communicate effective
methods of improving oral health.
For this reason, as a group, we wanted to be a part of this fantastic project, raising awareness and engaging our local community to join in and ultimately have some fun!!
We developed our ideas for National Smile Month with the support from a selection of
qualified Oral Health Educators, as well as the large team of staff that we have spread over 7
practices across Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire. We envisaged promoting and educating the
importance of good oral health within a large cross-section of our local community. This would
include; school visits, workshops within offices/children’s nurseries and several open day events.

Why choose to have an implant?...
Firstly, what is an Implant?...
Thinking about having a Dental Implant?... Look no further! Here's all the information you need when considering this outstanding, innovative treatment at ADG.
1. Closest thing to a real tooth - Strong and stable, a dental implant restores a lost tooth so that it looks, feels, fits and functions like a natural tooth. Other options can lead to bone deterioration, and may interfere with eating, smiling, speaking and other activities of everyday life.
2. Built to Last! - If properly placed and cared for, Dental Implants can last a lifetime, whereas other appliances such as a denture or tooth supported bridge will almost certainly need replacing.
3. Retain your natural smile and face-shape - Avoiding bone deterioration and a sunken/sad looking face.
4. Dental implants allow you to keep your teeth where they belong – in your mouth! Wihout worrying that your dentures might fall out!
A dental Implant is in place to serve as a complete tooth replacement. They are generally composed of three components: the post, abutment, and restoration/crown.
The dental implant post looks like a screw. It is normally made of titanium and integrates into the jawbone like a tooth root.
The abutment is attached to the post, and the restoration, or crown, is attached to the abutment.
