Nail reconstruction is ideal for anyone who’s lost toenails from running, trauma or infection. So if you've recently run a marathon or dropped something on your toe causing one or more of your nails to break or fall off we can help.
At Sandford Foot Clinic we use LCN Wilde-Pedique. This is a system of nail reconstruction where individual nails are moulded to create a personalised fit and colour match bespoke to you. The nails are made from an extremely strong, elastic gel which sets when exposed to UV-A light. It has been developed specifically for correcting and restoring missing or damaged toe nails.
We are proud to one of only a few clinics in Cheltenham offering this treatment, which can make a huge difference to the confidence of those who have lost toenails. The gel resin has the ability to bond to any surface and is very effective on many types of damage as it can conceal ridges, deformities and hide discolouration from fungal nail conditions. The Wilde-Pedique prosthetic nail system can also be used where the nail has been surgically removed. You will be able to wear sandals and flip flops again with pride.
The Wilde-Pedique gel will essentially look and cut just as a regular toe nail. The results can be very long lasting, but may need refilling every 6-8 weeks until the natural nail has fully re-grown. It is essential that some portion or spur of the natural nail remains for the reconstructed nail to last.
Yes, the LCN Wilde-Pedique Silver Plus is a unique new gel formulation has anti-fungal properties and has been specifically developed for use on infected toe nails. The active ingredient of Micro Silver gives additional protective qualities and the anti-mycotic agent Piroctone Olamine helps protect against fungal infection whilst rebuilding any part of the nail that has been lost.
