At Smile Clinic – Dental Holiday we offer pain-free dentistry for all our patients. Recently we had a patient – young Lukas came to our Bratislava clinic and was hoping for a miracle. He hasn’t been in the dentist´s chair for more than 7 years and his teeth were in bad condition. In his mid-thirties, he had only 5 damaged remains of lower teeth. As you can see on his 1st X-ray, his upper jaw needed a major dental treatment aswell.
Lukas had his initial consultation appointment in August 2018. Dr Martin from Smile Clinic Bratislava made a treatment plan for him: 12 dental implants, gum recounting and sinus lift and 16 dental crowns. Also, three of his teeth needed root canal treatment.
Lukas booked his surgery appoitment for early September 2018. Our dental surgeon and implantologist Dr.Martin started the treatment with extraction of his tooth n. 27 (UL7) from his upper jaw. He made a sinus lift and started the upper jaw implantation – the doctor put in implants number 12, 22, 24, 26 and 27. His lower jaw needed gum recounting and 7 dental implants (47, 46, 44, 34, 36, 37, 32). On the same day as sugery took part we made custom-made provisional implant abutments for Lukas. They keep fresh implants safe at place and help with healing. Root canal treatments were done several days after the implantation.
Strenght, reliability and high aesthetical and natural looking result with dental implants and dental crowns
Dental implants provide solid compensation for an inconvenient or incomplete set of teeth. Dental implants can help when the patient has only one tooth missing and also when there are no teeth left in upper or lower jaw as well.
We continued with the treatment in 4,5 months after the implantation. This time was needed to get Lukas´s implants healed completly. On this visit we prepared Lukas´s natural teeth for dental crowns and the doctor took the impressions. Thanks to the impressions our dental technicians are able to prepare Lukas´s final dental crowns. Our dental laboratory is locates directly at our Piešťany clinic so dental technicians and doctors can colaborate to achieve perfect results for every patient.
In 2 weeks all dental crowns were ready to fit. Lukas left our clinic on Valentine´s day with brand new smile that he don´t have to hide anymore. Natural looking smile is now achievable for every patient. You can contact us directly here and we will welcome you hapily to our clinic.
Here you can find a hand-written testimonial that Lukas wrote after we completed the treatment:
Big thank you, nice people.
