Case Study

Dental implants offer a multitude of benefits and are becoming a popular alternative to false teeth and removable dentures

The patient required both upper and lower jaw dental implants. Custom-designed to replicate and match the patient’s existing teeth, we ensured that the smile looked natural. Once the implants had healed the patient then had their teeth whitened to fully complete their new smile. See more before and afters here.

What is a dental implant?

Dental implants are considered to be one of the most suitable solutions to restore missing teeth.

This is because they are a quick and powerful way to repair a patient’s smile.

As a successful and reliable treatment, dental implants are regularly prescribed as a more comfortable and stabler alternative to removable dentures.

The implant securely planted into the jawbone functions like an artificial tooth root, implementing the fundamental structure for the implant to perform and operate the same as a natural tooth. Further guaranteeing the treatment’s success and strength.

Dental Implant Treatments:

Need tooth replacement options? The Gentle Dental offers a wide range of implant treatments to suit a wide range of needs and requirements.

Single Tooth Implants

Specifically custom-designed to suit and match existing teeth, the implant will flawlessly blend in with the mouth and be durable and secure. More.

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

This treatment offers a permanent fixed solution to replace multiple missing gaps caused by tooth loss in one or both jaws.

Also referred to as ‘smile in a day’, the procedure is a well-liked choice as patients can have an entirely restored smile in just one appointment. More.

Implant Retained Dentures

As one of the most cost-effective ways to replace multiple missing teeth, this procedure secures dentures in place using implants – making the treatment an excellent progression from traditional dentures. More.

Dental implants costs: Full jaw & single tooth implants

The cost of dental implant procedures can vary – this is because it’s very case-by-case specific.

For example, patients suffering from underlying oral health conditions will need to have these corrected before proceeding.

Implants can cost more than other restorative treatments, this is because of the quality and the success rate it achieves.

Because the procedure is complex, it involves specifically trained dentists, which makes them a great, long-lasting investment.
