Before And After Photos

Nazia Glover – This male patient in his forties was diagnosed with hypodontia, multiple retained deciduous teeth which were failing, tooth wear, as well as worn and fractured restorations. Treatment was phased to first increase the occlusal vertical dimension (OVD) using composite restorations and provisional crowns before implants were placed to replace the failing deciduous teeth with both single units and implant-retained bridges. Definitive treatment was carried out with a combination of implants and conventional crowns at the new increased OVD.

David Furze – Many different treatments were used to complete this incredibly difficult case. The previous bridge was un-aesthetic and two of the abutments were un-restorable. Digital smile design was completed before early implant placement with simultaneous guided bone regeneration. Surgery was completed to shape the gums around the canine teeth, then a series of provisional crowns were used to get a great aesthetic outcome for the permanent crown and bridge work. The patient is incredibly happy with the result.

Case 3 After

Josh Sharpling – SF came to the practice wishing to replace his missing UR1. We were able to place an implant at the same time as bone grafting, which helped us deliver this fantastic result.

Graham Browning – This patient attended the practice with very mobile teeth. As the teeth were not restorable, all were extracted. Six implants were then placed and an Implant-retained bridge attached on the same day of placing the implant.

When the patient returned for his follow-up appointment to monitor the health and prognosis of the implants, he was very happy with his new smile and delighted that he can now eat anything, even apples from the tree in his garden.

Naveed Soomro – Patients treatment plan consisted of at home tooth whitening, composite bonding of the front 6 teeth and implants UR5 UL5 to replace the previously worn denture.

Josh Sharpling – LM was referred to us as she wished to have a fixed tooth replacement for her UL2. On presentation she was wearing an ill-fitting acrylic partial denture. I placed an implant in the UL2 region, alongside simultaneous bone grafting, and worked with Byrnes dental laboratory to give the patient a natural final result which she and I were both really pleased with.

David Furze – Following a traumatic loss of the patient’s central incisor, an implant was placed using our standard techniques. This involves early implant placement with simultaneous guided bone regeneration, provisional restoration and soft tissue maturation before a customised impression and all-ceramic crown. Our published research has demonstrated that this leads to the best aesthetic result.

Case 4 Before
Case 4 After

Nazia Glover – Patients implants previously failed and with such a large hard and soft tissue defect, a 6 unit conventional bridge was the best option.

Josh Sharpling/Graham Browning – new upper composite bridge, implant and a two tooth bridge to replace lower incisors.

Josh Sharpling – Implants aren’t teeth! Unlike teeth, implants do not move position as we grow older. This patients teeth were level when they were done over 10 years ago, however the tooth (UL1) has continued to move, and the implant (UR1) has stayed in the same place. This gives the illusion of the tooth in the implant getting shorter.

It is always difficult to make a new crown match an old crown; but Josh worked with Byrnes to get it right, sometimes it takes a few tries. The first try in or the new crown was still a little short, so Josh added some composite to show the lab how long the crown needed to be. Byrnes then copied this length exactly, and the patient was over the moon with her new implant crown. We even managed to keep the old abutment in place!

Naveed Soomro – This 78-year-old patient wanted to replace her existing denture with a dental implant. She was previously given a single tooth partial acrylic denture replacing the upper right central incisor and hated that it was removable.

The patient was an excellent candidate for a dental implant. We placed a Straumann implant and carried out minor guided bone regeneration on the buccal aspect before restoring the implant eight weeks later.

As the implant is in the anterior region, we have provided a provisional screw-retained crown to allow the soft tissues to settle around the new prosthesis before placing the definitive restoration.

The patient is very happy with the result so far and is looking forward to the final outcome.
