Case Study

Patient receives dental implant restorative work to repair the upper jaw

The patient was very happy with the result of his dental implant procedure, which was completed in five months. He required restorative work to the upper jaw to replace the dentures he had been wearing for years. See more before and afters here.

What is a dental implant? Dental implants explained:

Dental implants are deemed to be one of the most common and suitable solutions to rebuild missing teeth.

This is because they are a swift and great way to restore a patient’s smile.

As a thriving and safe treatment, dental implants are frequently recommended as a more suitable and more permanent alternative to removable dentures.

A titanium screw is implanted into the jawbone and acts as an artificial tooth root.

Once healed, a crown is placed on top. Over 90% of dental implants are successful and can last more than twenty years depending on the quality of care.

Why dental implants are becoming increasingly popular

Dental implants are the near best replica to existing, normal teeth. It is also understood that dental implants are the most trustworthy long-term solution than other tooth replacement options.

Advantages include:

  • More comfortable
  • Easier chewing experience
  • Increased oral health and hygiene
  • Progressed speech
  • Natural-looking and feeling

Dental implants have a multitude of benefits – read them all here.

Dental implant treatments:

The Gentle Dental offers a broad variety of implant treatments to accommodate an extensive array of conditions and requirements.

Single Tooth Implants

Single implants fill singular gaps created by tooth loss from either injury or decay.

Specifically, custom-designed to blend and balance existing teeth, the implant will be flawless and natural-looking as well as long-lasting and stable. More.

All-on-Four/All-on-Six (Same Day Dental Implants)

This treatment offers a permanent firm solution to substitute multiple missing gaps caused by tooth damage in one or both jaws.

Also known as ‘smile in a day’, the method is a modern preference as patients can have a fully reconstructed smile in only one appointment. More.

Implant Retained Dentures

As one of the most cost-effective ways to replace multiple missing teeth, this procedure fastens dentures in position using implants – making the treatment an exceptional improvement from conventional dentures. More.
