Most people are anxious when faced with losing a tooth. The thought of having missing teeth creates many issues for our patients. The main problems are loss of confidence in your smile, loss of chewing ability and speech issues.
I have many patients who attend my clinic for treatment to solve this problem. Dental Implants are a great way to resolve this, they are the next best thing to a real tooth as they mimic all of the favorable properties that natural teeth exist.
Case example – Our patient who had 2 missing teeth
2 missing teeth in the upper left area. This created both cosmetic and functional problems for Wendy. She felt that a denture would not resolve these problems and we made the decision to provide her with a fixed natural tooth solution.
The treatment started with the placement of 2 dental implants and, as you can see below, the resulting replacement teeth mimic the appearance of natural teeth perfectly.
The treatment was completed in 3 months and included the following sessions:
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 teeth on week 12
Our patients all have different expectations and requirements. We find that although dental implants are the best form of tooth replacement for most of our patients, some patients are more suited to dentures or bridges. We take great pride in providing the full range of care and options for our patients on a case-by-case basis.
Bespoke treatment planning is essential to treat our patients effectively and we ensure this is the case by always writing a dental report for all patients undergoing advanced treatments at Visit 1 (consultation).

Transforming a life with replacement teeth
Chris attended our clinic desperate for help after suffering with loose and missing teeth for numerous years.
A dental abscess begins to form when bacteria enter the root canal system from something like deep tooth decay or a crack in the tooth. Once bacteria have invaded the root canal it causes the nerve of the tooth to become inflamed and painful, causing toothache.
Leaving infected or damaged teeth in the mouth can result in hidden damage, whilst leaving gaps can cause drifting and loss of space to place a dental implant. For this reason we will always recommend early intervention, and will be able to offer you tailored advice and a customised treatment plan.
