Maybe it’s time to think about dental implants
Dental implants can mean more than a smile makeover. They can help restore your ability to eat your favourite food and boost your confidence.
As well as the emotional benefits, implants help to preserve your facial structure to keep you looking youthful, preventing bone deterioration and muscle sagging which occurs when teeth are missing.
- Provide a solution to missing teeth - often in just one day!
- Help you to enjoy your favourite foods
- Look and feel like natural teeth
- Facilitate speech and full oral functionality
The condition of our teeth can have a major effect on our mental health and implants are a great way to restore your natural smile and boost your confidence.
If you are missing teeth, dental implants can provide the secure and long-lasting solution you’ve been looking for.
Whether wobbly dentures are getting you down or you need to replace a single tooth or complete a smile, dental implants offer the option of teeth that look and feel just like your own – helping you gain confidence, restoring your smile and transforming your life.
‘Teeth in a Day’ is AJ’s signature treatment. A special system that he uses, Megagen, means a tooth or multiple teeth can be extracted and replaced in just a few hours.
Meet your Implantologist
Our experienced implantologist Dr. AJ Haasbroek has seen how implants can give you back your natural smile and the confidence to move forward in your life.
Dr. AJ Haasbroek qualified as a dental surgeon from the University of the Witwatersrand in 2010, and has Masters Degree in Dental Implantology from the University of Rey Juan Carlos in Madrid.
Dr AJ limits his practice to exclusively placing and restoring dental implants, and has successfully completed over 1000 implants. We are so lucky to have him providing first class treatment at THE dentist Salisbury.
“Seeing people that have difficulty in eating properly and not smiling with confidence because of loose dentures or failing bridges really breaks my heart. Dental Implant treatment makes such a big difference to people’s lives and it is truly amazing being able to transform someone from being embarrassed and shy to beaming with joy, happiness and life!” – AJ Haasbroek
Dental Implant case completed by AJ
Being a military man, this patient had had his front teeth replaced with implants after blunt force trauma to his face during a military operation. Years later, one implant crown failed and he came to AJ for a replacement.
With some careful planning we not only matched the single central incisor with its neighbour, but also designed it in such a way that the implant crown would most probably never need to be replaced again!
Dental Implant case completed by AJ
After years of extensive dental treatment and the inevitable gradual replacing of that original treatment due to wear and tear, this patient was left with only 4 top teeth and an uncomfortable denture.
She had always taken pride in her appearance, and her husband had never seen her without her teeth. This patients dentist referred her to AJ for a fixed implant-supported prosthesis. She can now eat her favourite meal once again, and her husband has still never seen her without her teeth!
Frequently asked questions
It’s a titanium or ceramic fixture that is inserted into the bone of the jaw. A crown is then attached to the top of the implant to replace the missing tooth.
Depending on the health of your mouth it may be possible to have immediate dental implant placement. In other instances the time frame will vary, AJ will give you an idea of timescale once he’s met you.
Traditionally Implant treatment can take well over six months to complete but now many patients are suitable for ‘Teeth in a Day’. We use a state-of-the-art Implant system called Megagen which means treatment is less invasive, fast, predictable and the results are aesthetically superior.
During this treatment we can remove teeth and immediately place Dental Implants.
Some of you might have been told in the past you’ve not got enough bone to place an Implant, but times have changed and we’ve got a lot of ways around that now.
All-on-four is a system where by AJ places four dental implants in each (or either) arch and then attaches to them a full set of teeth (dentures or bridges). A perfect way to restore your full smile!
A single implant including an implant crown begins at around £3000. It’s normal to carefully consider the cost of any purchase.
Implants are an investment, yes you might think treatment is expensive but .. Imagine how life changing it can be to have good solid, beautiful teeth! We all love a great deal, but rather than cut costs I pride myself in providing high quality, durable work. Sure it needs to be looked after and reviewed at your regular check ups but we will make sure you understand everything before we commit to treatment.
