Tim's Missing Tooth
Tim had a crown and over time, the underlying tooth had got weaker. During dental assessments the tooth was on watch - and eventually with little support left to hold the crown Tim was given the option of a consultation with our Implant Dentist and the option of a bridge, which meant impacting the healthy tooth in front.
What we did
Tim decided on the full Implant Assessment to see if he would qualify for a Dental Implant. During the assessment, the surgeon went through Tim’s medical history and oral health checks to ensure every chance of success. The Implant Dentist also explained the short, medium and long term process of having and caring for an implant, along with explaining the process from placement, to crowning.
After assessment, Tim was given a full treatment plan with various options and time scales. He decided to go ahead immediately and so the first step was to place the implant before letting it heal and take on a crown. The whole process took up to 6 months with just a couple of visits to ensure a successful long term outcome.
What did Tim say?
"I attended an assessment with the Implant Surgeon, where the procedure and pros and cons of implants were explained. It was very reassuring prior to committing to a long term process. I needed to replace a tooth already lost as I previously had a crown on this tooth which didn’t have sufficient support and eventually fell off! The Implant caused no problems or pain and I had no discomfort or inconvenience during the period of treatment. I now have a new tooth that allows me to eat normally again! It also blends in with my teeth so you don’t notice it. I would be quite happy to go through this process again if necessary as the Dentist and his team were highly professional throughout. Pay as you go eases the financial impact but it was well worth the cost. A good job, well done!"
