Restored with dental implants following an accident
Lower jaw where the teeth were of poor long term prognosis. The patient does not wish to have a removable set of false teeth. Dental implants were placed in the jaw bone and a full set off teeth was fixed into place
Following recent tooth loss, this patient struggled to cope with removable false teeth. Implants have been placed to provide a fixed solution to the patient's problem.
(Teeth 35 and 36 are metal ceramic crowns with metal collars)
In this severely compromised situation, gum disease had taken its toll on the oral structures. The patient did not want to undergo extensive surgery to graft the jaw bone nor did they want a tradiotional removable denture. Implants can be used to provide support, retention and stability when combined with a removable appliance. This tremendously increases confidence and comfort, restoring facial features and function.
The missing teeth in the upper left side (of the patient) of the upper jaw were replaced with implants and the tooth in between restored with a metal free crown.
This smile was restored by combining dental implants and highly aesthetic metal free ceramic restorations.
The loss of a front tooth is a physically and psychologically traumatic experience. This front tooth was promptly replaced and restored by means of a dental implant retained crown.
This lower incisor tooth was lost following a root fracture having had a post and crown for a number of years. This was replaced with an implant retained crown.
Front tooth traumatised over a decade ago. Now discoloured and with a resorbing root. The tooth was extracted and an implant placed immediately. After a course of tooth whitening a crown retained and supported on the implant was fitted.

Smiles all around: Following the loss of the last very lose teeth teeth in the upper jaw this gentleman required an immediate solution to replace his missing upper teeth. Having planned the treatment, four implants were strategically placed and a temporary bridge was fitted immediately on the day of surgery. This is a fixed and non-removable solution. Six months later a permanent bridge is made and fitted. This is a cost effective solution that often avoids sinus grafting procedures.
