At Total Dentalcare Folkestone we have a dedicated dental implant centre, where we offer an advanced same-day implant procedure called TDC Smile in a Day. It is a permanent and life-changing solution for people who live with the discomfort, inconvenience or embarrassment of dentures or loose and missing teeth.
With over 25 years’ experience in placing implants and a reputation built upon clinical excellence, award-winning patient care and consistently outstanding results, we have helped hundreds of patients to smile again, eat and enjoy all kinds of food again and, above all, to get their confidence back.
Dental implants replace the root of decayed, loose or missing teeth with a screw-like titanium post,onto which a crown (a replacement tooth or a whole arch of artificial teeth) can be fixed.
The jawbone fuses with the titanium post, providing a very stable base for custom-made, fixed teeth. They look, feel and function just like normal teeth and can last a lifetime if properly cared for.
Smile in a Day is an advanced, highly skilled treatment where a full set of implants and custom-made, temporary fixed teeth are fitted on the same day. Single implants can also be placed. The procedure is virtually pain-free. Patients arrive for surgery with loose or missing teeth, or dentures, and leave on the same day with their teeth, smile and confidence restored.
Unlike traditional implant methods where treatment requires multiple surgical procedures and months of healing time, our highly experienced team is able to perform any extractions and the implant surgery, and place a full set of natural-looking fixed teeth in a single day.
This is possible as the implants (usually four in each jaw) are placed at very precise angles to maximise the use of available bone, eliminating the need for bone grafts in the majority of cases. Even in cases of extreme bone loss where zygomatic (cheekbone) implants are needed, the procedure can still be carried out in one day.
And, instead of wearing removable dentures during the healing period, you leave our centre with a set of temporary natural-looking and secure teeth that remain in place night and day. About three months later, once your gums have settled you will be fitted with your final set of fixed, permanent teeth.
