An elderly gentlemen who only wanted to replace his missing front teeth with dental implants. A long term plan is in place in case other teeth fail.
This middle aged lady had some failing back teeth. The teeth were removed and two implants were placed. A few months later the crowns were fitted.
A 55 year old lady had a failing bridge. Part of the bridge was removed and replaced with an implant supporting two teeth in the form of a bridge. A bone graft was placed to increase bone volume. Treatment took few months to complete.
This delightful lady was concerned with the look of two old crowns top left. She also had a failing bridge bottom left that kept on detaching. The plan was to replace the failing bridge with dental implants and to replace the old crowns with two new ceramic crowns. We initially removed the bridge and the supporting teeth. We waited 3 months for the area to heal at which time we placed 3 dental implants. All the teeth bottom left were replaced with a ceramic bridge supported on 3 dental implants beneath the gum. Treatment was complete once the ceramic crowns were fitted top left. The work was performed by Liam Esposito and his team. The patient was delighted with result and we as a team would like to thank her as she always brought cake to every appointment.
This 62 year old lady who has been with the practice for over 10 years was fed up wearing dentures. After years of struggling to eat her favourite foods she decided to replace her missing teeth with a fixed solution. We opted to place 3 dental implants beneath the gum top left. Once healed 2 months later we then placed a fixed bridge which she was delighted with. Top right we opted for an acrylic bridge which was supported by her own teeth. In the long term we anticipate that we may need to replace teeth in this area but for now this bridge is a cost effective solution until eventually we may need to replace teeth. This treatment was performed by Liam Esposito and his team.
After a lifetime of being susceptible to gum disease this lady through us all working together managed to get her gums healthy and stable. Because of this she opted to have two teeth replaced top left to give herself more confidence when smiling. We placed two dental implants beneath the gum that can be seen on the X ray. We then constructed two crowns that are screwed onto the implants as shown. The treatment took three months to complete and the patient was delighted with the result. This lovely lady is highly motivated to keep her teeth clean which makes the end result look fantastic. The treatment was completed by Liam Esposito and his team.
This young lady had a baby canine tooth that had functioned perfectly well for many years. However when she got into her 20′ the tooth became loose and fell out.

She is now at university and is living life to the full. Treatment was completed by Liam Esposito and his team.
This 40 year old lady has been with the practice for over 15 years. She has a stressful job and is aware of grinding her teeth.

Treatment took 3 months to complete and was performed by Liam Esposito and his team
This gentleman has been a patient for 20 years. He had a missing lower right molar which he had debated for many years about replacing. His main reason for replacing the tooth was that he was getting things stuck in the gap and it was annoying him. He opted to replace the tooth with a dental implant as he wanted longevity. The treatment took 3 months and was performed by Liam Esposito and his team.
This lovely gentlemen decided to have all of his lower teeth removed as they were loose and as he put it not nice to look at. He decided to have a full lower denture that would clip onto two implants like a press stud. The photos above show the full denture in the laboratory and the two small attachments on the inside of the denture. These attachments then clip onto the two implants that can be seen in the mouth. We were all delighted with the result as he was able to smile with confidence and the denture felt nice and secure. He was so grateful that he left us a lovely review.
“I have been a patient at Boldmere Dental Practice since 1983/84 and received excellent treatment but in 2018 at the age of 79 I decided it was time to grasp the nettle and go for implants to secure my lower denture. The decision has been very successful. Liam and his team have guided me all the way through the process to a very successful conclusion. To say there was no discomfort throughout the 6 months of treatment would be dishonest but I was prebriefed as to what to expect and the final outcome has far outweighed that inconvenience. Thanks Liam to you and all your team for the very caring treatment and attention to detail shown to me . I was able to fulfil my speaking engagement with confidence.”
This 63 year old lady has had missing teeth upper right for years and it was becoming an issue when chewing. After going on holiday and struggling to eat her favourite foods she decided to replace her missing teeth with dental implants. We placed two dental implants which supported a metal ceramic bridge. After 3 months of treatment she was then able to chew her favourite foods in comfort.
This lovely 60 year old lady had been grinding her teeth for many years. Unfortunately her upper left premolar split in half and became painful. We were unable to save the tooth so she decided to have the tooth removed. As she was concerned with the appearance and the ability to chew in this area after a few months she decided to have the missing tooth replaced with a dental implant. An implant was placed and we let the area heal for 10 weeks. After 10 weeks of healing we then fitted a metal ceramic crown. The patient was delighted with the end result. as she was able to smile in confidence. The treatment was performed by Kavit Mehta and his team.
This lovely 71 year old male had missing teeth top left. For many years he wanted to replace his teeth with dental implants however in 2017 he opted to replace all his teeth top left with dental implants. He had very little bone because of his sinuses, so to be able to place implants we had to perform a bone graft. The bone graft increases the width and height of the available bone which enables us to place implants. We placed the bone graft in early 2017 and we then waited 9 months for the bone graft to heal as it involved his sinuses. Towards the back end of 2018 we then placed three dental implants. After 10 weeks of healing we then made a metal ceramic bridge to replace 4 teeth. The photos above show the laboratory stages. The bridge fits onto the implants via 3 little screw holes which are eventually filled. The patient wanted the look to replicate his own teeth so we added staining up by the gum and made the edges look worn. The treatment was performed by Liam Esposito and took 12 months to complete. The patient was delighted with the result.
A 68 year old gentleman had a failed bridge. The teeth supporting the original bridge had fractured off at gum level and needed to be removed. The teeth were then replaced with 2 implants supporting three teeth in the form of a bridge. Treatment took a few months to complete.
This patient had a crown that after 15 years had failed. We decided to remove the tooth and replace it with a dental implant. The treatment took three months after which time we fitted a bespoke crown. The patient was delighted with the result and as a thank you was given a goody bag which included a bottle of prosecco. What a way to celebrate.
