This gentleman came to us wanting the perfect smile in time for his son’s wedding. He had lost his teeth over 10 years ago for various reasons – unable to get on with dentures, he had opted to just do without.
When he arrived at our dental implant practice in Banbury he had 2 teeth and these needed to be extracted which left him without any. An essential part of the treatment planning was to have a CBCT Scan taken which allowed Dr Tom to accurately design where the Implants would best be placed. This involves working with our great laboratory who are involved with the design of the end product.
After diagnosis and treatment planning Mr G was given various options on how to create his desired smile. He decided to go with having 12 dental implants placed and to have fixed bridges fitted. As he was used to having no teeth, he decided to not have temporary dentures or bridges so he lived with no teeth for the healing period. We dedicated a day to place the Implants and ensured that there were no interruptions and no time constraints for Dr Tom to carry out the treatment.
We kept in close contact with the client after the treatment to ensure that all was well. A week later, he came back for a review appointment. Dr Tom lets the area settle and allows the Implant to become part of the bone before progressing to the next stage. This consisted of 2 visits over 2 months. When the next phase started and Mr G saw himself for the first time with teeth. We then made sure that the design and fit was perfect.
The next process was fitting the definitive bridges. Carrying out a complete transformation is, to put it mildly – Mr G looks amazing! People have commented that he looks 15 years younger and he feels everyone is smiling at him – this is because he is smiling at them. Our team are extremely proud of the result and are delighted that Mr G has transformed his smile.
