At Markham Street Dental, we love helping patients achieve their smile and oral health goals. See some of the smile transformations made possible by Dr Nyepetsi and his dental team.
Patient was a 79 year old female who had a dental bridge that failed as a result of tooth decay. The bridge had replaced 5 of her teeth and was supported by four others.
Treatment involved an extraction of 4 teeth that were decayed. Client opted for dental implants as opposed to a denture. Four implants were placed to support the bridge containing nine teeth. The bridge was then anchored to the dental implants through screws. A treatment time of 6 months.
Our patient attended our clinic with a very loose front tooth due to bone dissolving around it from gum disease. The patient indicated that she desired a fixed solution to replace the very loose tooth.
The Gum disease was treated, and stabilised, loose tooth extracted, and site grafted to regenerate lost bone to permit implant placement. A Dental implant was placed 6 months after extraction and a front tooth secured to dental implant after 3 months. The total treatment time was 9 months.
A patient had root canal therapy and crown on a first molar which lasted for many years, this developed an infection and abscess that resulted in bone defect within the jaw. After considering and discussing several different options with the patient, it was decided to extract the molar and graft the bone defect. An implant was placed 4 months after extraction and grafting. 3 months after dental implant placement, a molar was secured to the implant. Treatment time 7 months
An elderly patient had a dental bridge replacing a missing front tooth for many years. The bridge failed as the anchor tooth snapped at gum line resulting in two missing teeth. Two options were discussed i.e. removable denture (plate) or implant-supported teeth.
The patient decided to go with implant-supported teeth. The snapped tooth was removed at the same time placing two dental implants. Three months following dental implant placement, two front teeth were secured individually to dental implants. The total treatment time was 3 months.
