What a difference a dental implant can make…

Dental implant surgery is a particular focus for my professional work.

The benefits achievable with dental implants can be key to effective cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry work – all playing part of aesthetic and functional improvements (also more commonly known as a ‘smile makeover’)…

There can be a number of reasons why a dental implant can be the effective solution for a patient.

Implants can make significant difference in function and appearance.

I recall looking after one male patient from our Glasgow dental clinic who had suffered a sports injury – he’d been a footballer and in a clash had instantly knocked out his two front teeth. I was able to see him at short notice and assess the damage caused in the accident.

Like anyone the loss of these teeth and the impact on his smile were fairly traumatic factors but it was evident to me on examination that we could achieve a long-lasting and effective solution for the patient by using dental implants.

The treatment took about 15 months in total but during the patient journey we kept him fully informed with what was happening and what needed to happen to achieve the end result.

Much of that time is taken up in the simple healing process post surgery and to allow the titanium implant to become properly secured in the patient’s mouth.

The patient’s own words to us in a testimonial summed up the outcome following completion of his treatment plan.

He kindly wrote: “The shape and shade of each new tooth has exceeded my expectations and the overall effect has restored my confidence.”

I carry out dental implant work both at my Glasgow clinic and also at the New Town Dental Care clinic in Edinburgh.
