It is a daunting prospect for some when faced with losing a tooth. It is even more daunting when you are losing a few teeth. Unfortunately, I have seen so many patients accepting missing teeth and the difficulty this causes them when trying to function and chew properly. Not only this, it seems to have a negative effect on their confidence as well.
Even more patients seem to accept an uncomfortable denture as being their only option to replace these teeth.
I take great pride in providing my patients with fixed dental implants to replace these teeth. This not only restored their function, but it also improves their confidence. Most of my patients call it life changing and say they wish they had it done sooner. This is the most satisfying moment in the treatment programme – I enjoy this the most.
Below is a patient who simply lost a front tooth in a minor accident. She was delighted with having her tooth back again, and can move on from the incident without it having a permanent effect on her quality of life.
The treatment plan took 3 months to complete and included the following visits:
Visit 1 – Implant consultation and planning on week 1
Visit 2 – Implant placement and placement of temporary tooth on week 1
Visit 3 – Post operative 2 week review appointment on week 2
Visit 4 – Impressions of implant and teeth at week 10
Visit 5 – Fit of final Implant tooth on week 12
