Joyful day

Yesterday was a good day, I was lucky enough to have a lovely patient who wanted to have some “teeth in the space of one day” or as we would term it, upper and lower immediate arches. This a technique whereby, patients can have missing or damaged teeth removed; implants placed into the jaws, and new upper and lower teeth placed and screwed down to their new implants in the space of a few hours! Whilst it sounds simple, it isn’t, it requires hours of planning, with sophisticated digital records and the help on the day of a team of nurses and a dedicated technician, it really is for the experienced implantologist only. Yesterday, we had a fantastic patient who was very tolerant and sat for many hours in the chair before we delivered for him, new teeth. I’m pleased to say he was delighted with our efforts and is doing well
