Young man was in his early 30s and still had a baby tooth which was small, damaged and loose on the upper left. He was unhappy with his lopsided smile and tried not to smile too broadly as the old baby tooth really showed. We treated this case in just over 12 months using clear braces and finishing with a dental implant replacement of the old baby tooth. We usually put the implant in 3 months before the end of orthodontic treatment so the new implant tooth can be made ready to be fitted within a couple of weeks of completing the orthodontic treatment.
This is a case where orthodontics and dental implants were used. First we closed the big gaps at the front using a fixed clear brace (this took under 12 months. Then we added 2 new teeth on the lower right where the premolar and molar were decayed right through using dental implants. Here the after pics were taken before the new implant teeth were added lower right.
This gentleman was in his 50s and didn’t like his buck teeth, increased overbite and jumbled lower teeth. we fitted clear brackets and realigned all the teeth over approximately 12 months. We completed the case by replacing a failing tooth with a dental implant and replaced some of the ageing crowns (caps) with shiny new ones that blended perfectly with the adjacent teeth.

When this lady came to us, she had been thinking for a long time that she was beyond the point where she could regain her smile. A lot of people think this, but it’s never as bad as you believe it’s going to be.
The upper denture didn’t fit very well, it was uncomfortable and difficult to eat, so that needed replacing.
After a CT scan and assessment, we suggested that implant based fixed upper denture would work very well, and we did prepare Acrylic replacement teeth on a metal frame that is now fixed to the dental implants. During the treatment, we fixed two sets of temporary teeth, whilst the denture replacement was being prepared. These alone give an almost an instant improvement for the patient, showing how things are going to look.
We hope you’ll agree, we were rewarded with a great smile.
The patient kindly gave us a review for our website.
This gentleman had some some implant teeth fitted in Eastern Europe on the upper right side. He was happy that
his eastern european bridge functioned correctly but when he found that the teeth on the upper left were also
starting to come loose he decided to have treatment closer to home
‘By the time you factor in the extra cost of flights and hotels, and the hassle factor when the temporary bridge
kept falling out, I felt it was best to come closer to home for the other side’ he said.
We placed 4 more implants in the upper left side to replace the wobbly teeth and within 10 weeks we were taking impressions
to fit the final porcelain bridge.
The final porcelain bridge was such an improvement in appearance that we were asked to replace the eastern european
bridge on the opposite side as well to even the score!
So the after photo actually shows 2 bridges which meet in the middle supported on 8 implants in the upper jaw.

This chap came to us because he had had an accident which had destroyed many of his teeth and what teeth he
had remaining were very wobbly. He is in his 40s and hated his dentures – often he would simply not wear them
and as a result he had stopped smiling and lost a lot of his confidence.
We provided a complete new set of teeth (supported by dental implants in both jaws) within 3 months.
He is now smiling readily and reports that his life has changed dramatically since his confidence is restored.

Implant bridges are a great way of replacing a few missing teeth. What some people don’t realise is that we only
need to use 2 implants to replace 4 teeth in the front of the lower jaw.
In this case the gentleman had some very wobbly teeth which he hated to look at at the front of the lower jaw. He
said they were so loose that he had taken to eating only very soft foods.
His fear was that he would have to have a denture – and he hated that idea! His own dentist had offered him one.
We first treated the gum disease to ensure that none of the other teeth in the mouth would suffer the same fate.
Then we removed the 4 wobbly ones and put 2 implants and a temporary bridge in: all on the same day!
The final porcelain bridge was finished within 12 weeks and our gentleman can now eat anything he wants and has
no worries about his teeth falling out during social functions!

This lady came to us because she was having trouble eating due to the upper teeth moving a lot.
She was also suffering some pain from the upper teeth and finally, she wanted to improve her smile
(although this was last on her list of priorities!)
We found that gum disease (periodontal disease) had caused the bone to shrink back around all the upper teeth
which had made them very loose and prone to infections. They had also started to move and become splayed out
because of the gum problem.
We first treated the teeth to stop the gum disease in the lower jaw and prevent the need for further implant
treatment. Once the lower teeth were stable we removed the upper teeth and put implants in to replace them at
the same time (immediate implants). We were able to put a temporary bridge (not a denture!) onto these implants so
that our patient walked in with her wobbly teeth and walked out a few hours later with a fixed set on her new
We performed the surgery under sedation so that our patient was slept through most of it and awoke with her new teeth!
Within 12 weeks we were fitting the new ceramic bridge – you can imagine the reaction!
This lady hated her smile, too gummy with mottled teeth. What we did:
- She went to the hygienist first to get the teeth and gums healthy
- We did gum reshaping to adjust the tooth length and reduce the gummy look
- We did whitening to decrease the yellow areas on the teeth
- We finished off with 8 immediate veneers at the end of treatment
The whole job took 8 weeks from start to finish and the final veneers were done in a shade over 3 hours
This lady joined our plan so that she could get our maximum discounts on the treatment and to ensure
that long term we can look after her new smile
