Imogen, our lovely patient was referred to London Dental Specialist by a fellow specialist colleague in Dubai.
She fell over at the age of 13 and since then she never stopped experiencing reoccurring problems caused by dental trauma.
Dental trauma can result in tooth loss despite best efforts at retaining and maintaining compromised teeth. Upper front teeth are more likely to suffer from trauma, and their loss can result in significant cosmetic and confidence problems in patients.
Most often people who suffer trauma to their front teeth as teenagers tend to need dental implants later in life. The key to success is to delay the need for implants till they are in their twenties or thirties.
As soon as she met Dr Ope, Imogen felt extremely confident and wanted to embark in this journey towards her desired smile without hesitation.
Root canal treatments
After a very thorough examination, Imogen was referred to see our root canal specialist Dr Neha for having redone some root canal work.
The beauty of coming to London Dental Specialists gave her the opportunity to be treated by two remarkable specialists under the same roof.
Bone graft technique was required to correct the deficiency of natural bone caused by dental trauma in the childhood.
Gum graft procedure was needed in the correction of the cosmetically unpleasant gum recession.
A successful implant was placed in the upper jaw followed by a 3 months healing period.
When the implant was fully integrated into the jaw bone, an implant crown resembling the natural teeth was placed.
Imogen has regained the confidence in smiling again. She used to be very self -conscious about her problem and used to cover her mouth each time she was smiling.
At London Dental Specialists we are aim to provide the best service for our patients in order to improve their quality of life and every story has a unique and precious place in our heart.
I'm so happy with my teeth. They're just like brand new as if nothing ever happened to them. I probably smile more now and I don't have to try to cover them up anymore .
