Hayes Dental Surgery Patient
Dental implants are amazingly natural looking replacements that feel as strong and comfortable as your own teeth. As well as restoring your normal appearance, dental implants make eating and speaking much easier than dentures.
Dental implants are anchored permanently into the jaw, replacing the tooth’s own root – just like natural teeth. The implant itself is a titanium post inserted into the gum. Left in place for two to eight months, the bone around the implant gradually grows and bonds with the implant, holding it securely in place.
Once in position, an implant can hold a single replacement tooth, a bridge or a denture with several replacement teeth. And the real benefit is that they are virtually indistinguishable from your own teeth, which means you can enjoy an attractive and natural looking smile once more.

Dental Implant Training
Jag started his dental implant training in 2002 with short courses and has subsequently had further exposure to surgical aspects of implant dentistry during his higher surgical training.

Jag has an interest in innovative technologies in head and neck cancer treatment and recently obtained the British Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons Presidents Prize for his work at Imperial College London looking at iKnife technology in head and neck cancer.

He hopes to develop this technology in a clinical trial with robotic surgery to improve the accuracy of the removal of head and neck cancers.
Jag started his research training with a Medical Research Council funded intercalating degree (Bachelor of Science) in Cellular and Molecular Pathology.
